|Horror Short Story|
I was able to download The Doll by J. C. Martin for free from Amazon to my Kindle. Below is my unbiased review of The Doll.
The Doll is a creepy tale of horror involving dolls! Elements of Santeria and Palo Mayombe are mentioned in this short story. I liked the premise of the story and the characters, but somehow the execution of the story itself and how it played out wasn't scary/creepy enough for me. I wanted a story that left me feeling chills!!
The plot summary for The Doll by J. C. Martin from Amazon as follows:
The Island of the Dolls is a strange and eerie tourist destination in Mexico, where hundreds of decomposing dolls hang from trees like grisly Christmas ornaments. On a trip to the island, Joyce Parker's daughter falls in love with a beautiful but sinister doll. Soon after, she starts developing strange mannerisms that concerns Joyce. Her research into the doll's past reveals a dark history, and the curse of a lonely child spirit.
I thought The Doll by J. C. Martin was alright. Nothing special. I'm giving it a rating of 5 stars out of 10 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!
