DOLLS by Matt Shaw

Published May 4, 2017 by Shadow Girl

From Matt Shaw – the author behind the black cover books – comes a terrifying story of lost love and mental illness. Expect twists and turns as he takes you on a dark journey into the depths of a broken mind.

Synopsis:
“He understood why she did it. She had lost her own baby – one conceived by the unwanted advances of a sexual predator – and hated thinking of them out there in the cemetery, alone and cold. She had to bring them into the warm. She had to give them the life they’d otherwise never live. It was her mission. But with each new doll brought home, her yearning for a living child of her own continued to grow. Yes, he knew why she did it but – even so – he wasn’t able to stand by her and he knew she was going to get a lot worse before she got better. But how do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped? And how do you turn your back on your own sister?”

Another 5 Stars For THE Matt Shaw

IDK what stopped me from reading this title earlier, (published February 2, 2016), but I’m happy that I finally did read it! DOLLS feels like one of Matt‘s older titles – it’s not a black cover, not an extreme extreme horror, and the story totally sucked me in. I was 100% invested in the story right from the beginning.  Now, as embarrassing as this might be, I gotta tell ya… I didn’t see the ‘oh holy shit’ moment until about 5 words before it was revealed to us! I love that Matt can still do that after all these years, and all these books.

I’m trying to catch up on a lot of Matt‘s titles that I haven’t’ read and/or reviewed before now, so stay tuned for a couple more ‘not-too-extreme’ extreme story reviews, and for some with the buckets of blood & gore that I expect to be dumped on me very soon ::winks::

Peace, Love & Necrophilia ♥
