Summary

The clockwork dolls seem to be moving on their own. What are they trying to show?

When Ainsley moves in with her uncle, the governor, it seems like a beautiful situation. An orphan is finding love in an elite household. However, she carries with her the power to reveal her uncle’s darkest secrets.

Delightfully Creepy

In the house of clockwork dolls all is not quite as it seems. This well written short story unfolds wonderfully to send tingles down our spine. The narrator gives a good performance adding to the listeners enjoyment.

Not My Cup of Tea.

This book was very well written & the narrator did a good job,, but just not the type of book I generally like or enjoy. This book was a pleasure to listen to and I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

Great revenge story

This was my first steampunk story and I loved it. It's a quick read/listen. This author did an amazing job giving us a story in such a small amount of time. This is a story of girl whose not treated fairly from someone who is supposed to care about her. But her tormentor underestimates her strength and the ultimate story of revenge is born. I found myself cheering for her strength the whole way through. When the truth was exposed I was shocked. This story will inspire you and get you pumped up. This is the ultimate story showing good overcoming bad. This narrator did a great job being the voice of this story.

Good short

Recieved free copy in exchange for honest review.

I found this to be a good little story. I enjoyed the clockwork and how she had used it to drive him mad.

What a great scary story

Between being disabled and having a cruel sociopath a 15-year-old brother Jane cannot catch a break. Until she needs Ainsley. This is a great story I recommend it to anyone who likes scary stories especially those with talking dolls. This is a very inventive and original story although you would think with the talking doll it would be the same old truck but I found it to be very original and I liked it a lot.

Dark, disturbing and brilliant!!

Robert has dark secrets he believes are hidden in his past. When he starts getting 'haunted', he fears someone knows the truth and looks to his niece, Ainsley for answers.

A story of revenge and unraveling of deep and dark secrets. This was a short and very cleverly written story. I only wish it lasted a little longer!

Lisa narrated clearly and well, she gave good character voices and performed the story with the right feel.

Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

Gotta Love Steampunk

I really liked the concept of Clockwork Dollhouse. Using a child's dollhouse to expose the past was a unique way to incorporate steampunk into the world.

I enjoyed the author's style and I would definitely read more by her. I received this audiobook from the author/narrator/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Good Short Story

I thought this story was good. I like the idea of the dolls "coming" to life. I just wish this story was a little bit longer and went into more detail. However if you like good short stories this is for you.

Clockwork Dollhouse review

Clockwork Dollhouse by Jordan Elizabeth and narrated by Lisa Hicks is a young adult, steampunk short story. This was actually pretty good to tell you the truth and short in length, went by pretty fast. Was it worth it, yes. An interesting, entertaining audiobook with good narration, characters and writing. Five stars and worth it.
