About this deal

The dolls, like Rebecca, are a huge fascination for Sophie, because they appear to be everywhere… strung together in Piper’s sinister necklace, lying side by side in the glass cabinet in Rebecca’s old room (where nothing, except maybe the Frozen Charlotte dolls, has moved since the day she died)… Sophie even discovers some down at the beach. After a scary incident with an Ouija board app, Sophie decides to get away from home and stay with her uncle and cousins in their huge house on the Isle of Skye. This book ticked a lot of the typical horror clichés: a mysterious death, a scary house, creepy little girl, weird brother, family secrets and DOLLS. And I also liked Sophie, who starts out with feet of clay but ends up as a fully paid-up member of the evil-fighting squad.

Our leading lady Sophie was probably the most well-developed, but I can't say that I ever really liked her. Because of this I found it hard to create an attachment to any of the characters, with the exception of Cameron and Sophie whom I was definitely rooting for. I mean I liked Sophie but there was nothing particularly special about her and aside from Piper none of her cousins seemed to be particularly fleshed up. Jay downloads this Oujia board app on his phone and they try to contact her dead cousin Rebecca, who Sophie tells him died suspiciously when she was seven. I was also surprisingly spooked each night when I turned the light off in an attempt to go to sleep.For some years these ranged from dolphin trainer to animal shelter vet but then, at fifteen, she had an epiphany involving John and Robert Kennedy and decided to become a lawyer instead. No explanation is ever given and I almost rated it a 3 because of that since it was a major plot hole. It’s always the gory details that get me and make my skin crawl, but as this is a horror book, that’s a good sign! She does this by only giving away certain hints at specific points, as well as, only appearing at times that the plot needs developing. This is the perfect time of year to read this book if you're interested in a spine-tingling, bone-chilling, good ol' classic horror tale!

The setting – that isolated house, miles from anywhere, with seemingly relentless winds and bad weather – immensely added to the story, and the remote, uncertain feeling of it. A fantastic read that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I would definitely recommend this to all readers looking for a good scare and a murder mystery! I felt like it was obvious when the character named Piper was introduced with her innocent schemes that didn’t fool me twice as there was something wrong about her and with the mother’s disappearance, a girl’s death and those creepy Charlotte dolls involved it all laid with Piper.

Well, by any reader, I mean anyone willing to read a book that will leave you with nightmares for at least a week.
