The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray Review!

When the world is breaking all someone wants is safety.
A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when eighteen-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

I have deep love for this book. The characters were intense and well mapped out. Cheyenne was a great main character and she didn't annoy you like other MC's do. Teo, well I disliked Teo with a fiery passion and I'm mexican so I know how to hate! ;). Marcus, oh my dear sweet baby Marcus, he is awesome and HOW IS HE RELATED TO THE SCUM THAT IS TEO. I didn't like Cleo at first but she grew on me and she is a badass to the max!
The plot was very new and not like anything I had ever seen before! It was very fresh and didn't have any cliches which are my pet peeves. The writing style was wonderful, and didn't make you want to fall asleep as soon as you picked it up. It was fast-paced and not at all boring!
I can't wait to see what else Mary writes!
