Synopsis (From Netgalley)
Ella doesn’t remember what it’s like to be human; after all, she’s lived as a doll for thirty years. She forgets what it’s like to taste, to breathe…to love.
She watches the professor create other dolls, but they don’t seem to hang around for long. His most recent creation is Lisa, a sly goth. Ella doesn’t like Lisa. How could she, when Lisa keeps trying to destroy her?
Ella likes the professor’s granddaughter though, even if she is dying. It’s too bad the professor wants to turn Gabby into a doll, depriving her of an education…depriving her of life.
With time running out and mad dolls on the rampage, Ella questions her very existence as she unearths the secrets buried in her past; secrets that will decide whether Gabby will befall the same fate…
This was a real surprise for me! There were a lot of things going against this book in the beginning. It’s about dolls; I hate dolls, they terrify me! The beginning was really slow and lacked any meat to it. The character were slightly annoying. What it had going for it was I sure the professor was a creep and I HAD to know what he was doing.
I am so glad I requested this and continued it. What it lacks in actual suspense, it certainly makes up for it in twisty turny style! Seriously don’t trust anyone let alone your instincts when it comes to this novel!
I don’t even know what else I can say that won’t give anything away.
I will be looking out for book two, definitely!
