The Party of Dolls on the Walls

There once was a party, 

There once were 12 guests.

The rules were quite simple...

Smile or be dead.

The clock will strike 12, the fun will begin.

Death's diamond door is open at the end.

Someone is imitating, someone is lost.

The watchmaker's whirr whirr whirr whirring...

The watchmaker's spin spin spin spinning...

Look at yourself in the mirror with different eyes.

Your head will swing in time with some crazy dripping tune.

Your tiny hands are frozen...are frozen...are frozen...

Each guest hated mice, and each guest had a secret.

The first to dance will be the one who couldn’t keep it.

The second to eat will be the one to choke.

The third to sleep will be the one to snap.

The fourth to drink will be the one to clap.

The fifth to sing will be the one to crack.

The sixth to laugh will be the one to scratch.

The seventh to see the demon in hiding will break.

The eighth to lie about the mice will be the one to cry.

The ninth that had stood there and simply observed,

Will tap away to the woods and be lost to all.

Who is the traitor in this midst of deception?

Who is there left that can still keep smiling?

The watchmaker's heart is twisting.

The diamond bands are breaking.

This is the party of little dolls,

The smiling party of the little dolls on the walls,

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them behind.

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them to the mice.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

PaulSenkel: A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing. Harry evolves quite a lot and the more you read the more you appreciate his intelligence.The setting is special to say the least. Imagine you have enough money so that everybody can have all they ...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.
