Doll Maker

The most difficult thing to achieve is to make them seem alive. 

See that spark in their eyes; make their alabaster flesh supple and tender. And warm. They have to be warm, oh so warm, for them to be able to fall in love. In order for them to seem alive they have to be perfect in every way. 

I am a master of my craft.

 I labour over each creation. I put my time, my blood and my love into every stitch, every brush stroke, all so that they may fall in love. I have watched, as a father does, my creations go off into the world. Falling in love with young boys and old women alike. Seeing as their eyes would light up and colour would rush to their cheeks, as the people taking them in their arms held them tight. I let their happiness wash over me and I bask in the love that I have created. 

After the unions cease, after their love stops filling my quaint home, I am content. For I have my work to return to, and such work to do! 

When their love leaves this place, I return to my masterpiece, my love. I have laboured over her for years, carefully and painstakingly creating my own love. Her alabaster flesh is soft and pure, but cold, oh so cold. The stitches refuse to heal. Her eyes have no spark yet, but I am working tirelessly to return it to them, praying that the love pouring out of me is enough to fill them. I am a master of my craft, but the most difficult thing to achieve is to make her alive again.

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

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...

ronaldpolk: I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed this story. Yes there were times I thought to put it down and start another, but some of the characters called me back. The pace was appropriately slow in some places and engaging in others. I related to Steve and Ron, all characters had just the right amou...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

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

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...
