Here’s the next book in the Broken Dolls trilogy!
Shattered Girls by Tryolin Puxty is the sequel to Broken Dolls which is a young adult horror/thriller.
Read my review of Broken Dolls before reading on 🙂
“Ella’s decision to return to her doll form has caused more trouble than she ever thought possible.
Gabby’s a moody teen. The professor is gone. And people are going missing at alarming rates; including Gabby’s parents.
Robotic dolls – eerily similar to Ella – are popping up across the globe and nobody seems too concerned about it. Nobody except for Ella and Gabby.
With only the crazed Sianne left to help them, the girls must fight to find the truth behind the epidemic and the robotic dolls.
Only Ella doesn’t think they’re robotic at all… “
Compared to the first book, Shattered Girls was ALOT more enjoyable. There was more action, less weird horror. It was still creepy to imagine all of the tiny dolls (especially towards the climax) roaming around, but they weren’t locked up in a small, cramped space like the setting of Book 1.
As you’ll see when you read it, the plot is mostly set years after Broken Dolls takes place which allowed for the plot to expand in a different direction. I feel like you don’t necessarily need to have read the first book in order to completely understand the events and the actions that took place here in Book 2. There are characters and background information that are introduced that allow for a satisfied understanding of what transpired, but at the same time, I felt like this could have been a standalone with all of the recaps that there were.
The ending felt satisfactory, but you can tell there is a third book coming up (which there is). Overall, if you were like me and felt like Broken Dolls was an “eh” book, DON’T STOP THERE! Shattered Girls is WAYYY better in my opinion. It is more jam-packed with action and suspense. Towards the mid/end, I couldn’t put it down. I read this book in half a day, which led to a solid 4 out of 5 star rating.
I really want to see how Book 3 will play out because the ending was freaky. The plan one of the characters has for their future is pretty crazy world domination…
