"Days after reading Asylum, I'm still haunted by the images that Madeleine Roux's words conjured. I just want to curl up inside her skull and exist for a while in its dark, twisted magnificence. Brilliant!" -- Heather Brewer, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod"Page-turning. Fans of 'found footage' horror will enjoy this visually creepy take on the haunted-institution setting." -- Kirkus Reviews"The plentiful illustrations both advance the story line and immeasurably contribute to the spooky atmosphere. With its abundant jump scares, horror readers and fans of the TV show American Horror Story will delight in the fast-paced plot." -- Booklist"Illustrations used in this book are from actual asylums, and the author builds the tension nicely as Dan receives what may be messages from an inmate. A good choice for readers who enjoy books with scary situations that lead to a solid climax." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"A strong YA debut. Roux (aided by unsettling photo illustrations of abandoned asylums and tormented patients) creates an entertaining and occasionally brutal horror story that reveals the enduring impact of buried trauma and terror on a place." -- Publishers Weekly"Madeleine Roux's Asylum takes the fondest dream of our collective nerdy childhood and handily turns it into the scariest collective nightmare." -- Tor.com -- Tor.com"I started reading this one at my desk in broad daylight and still got goose bumps." -- Glamour -- Glamour
