    3.0 Stars I absolutely love horror stories that revolve around dolls, puppets and other humanoid objects so I was eager to check out this themed horror anthology. Like in almost every short story collection, I ended up liking some stories more than others. Anthologies are particularly hard to rate and review because each story is written by a different author with a very style. The odds of liking every story equally are pretty unlikely.  In this case, I loved two of the stories in the collection, 3.0 Stars I absolutely love horror stories that revolve around dolls, puppets and other humanoid objects so I was eager to check out this themed horror anthology. Like in almost every short story collection, I ended up liking some stories more than others. Anthologies are particularly hard to rate and review because each story is written by a different author with a very style. The odds of liking every story equally are pretty unlikely.  In this case, I loved two of the stories in the collection, but the other ones either fell flat or missed the mark for me.  My favourite stories were: Balladyna by Michael Wehunt This story was so fantastically dark. I don't want to spoil the twist so I'll just say that the author played with one of my favourite topics in this harrowing tale. Window Dressing by Christine Morgan It takes a talented author to make a store mannequin so creepy. The story was perhaps a bit predictable, but I still loved every minute of it. Fashion horror should get it’s own subgenre. Anthologies offer a fantastic opportunity to find new authors and after finishing this collection, I am very eager to check out more stories by both Wehunt & Morgan. While I did not connect with the majority of the stories, I really enjoyed those two stories.  Since horror is such a personal genre, I would still encourage readers to check it out for themselves if they also love creepy dolls and puppets.  Disclaimer: I received a digital copy from the editor.
