The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray
A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when seventeen-year-old Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.
At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.
The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.
If they play it right, then they'll be safe.
But if they play it wrong, they'll die.
The Dollhouse Asylum will be published by Spencer Hill Press in both paperback and ebook formats on the 22nd of October 2013.
How so completely incredible does this book sound?!
It sounds a bit like it will have at least some mythology in it and as though it is a dystopian thriller, each of them are all things that I love! in a book, and combined...  well let's just say this book now has a definite place on my to-read list :)
The cover of The Dollhouse Asylum is cool in such a creepy way and seems to fit the description of this book really well; to me it looks like perfection crumbling, falling apart.
Anyways, what's your opinion on the description? The cover?
Let me know in the comments!
