Three chilling novellas set in the world of the New York Times bestselling novel Asylum, which Publishers Weekly called "a strong YA debut." For the first time, these three terrifying stories will appear together with new found photographs perfect for new readers or diehard series fans looking for new clues and insights into the thrilling world of Asylum. This collection also features bonus sneak peeks at Asylum, Sanctum, and Catacomb, the novels that first introduced the Brookline asylum's legacy of terror.
In The Scarlets, Cal is drawn into New Hampshire College's twisted secret society—one with a deadly initiation.
In The Bone Artists, Oliver tries to make a little extra money for college by working for a seedy organization that traffics in human bones.
In The Warden, a young nurse starts a new job at the Brookline asylum but soon becomes suspicious of its unorthodox procedures. . . .
Don't miss Madeleine Roux's all-new gothic horror novel, House of Furies.
“With all the elements of a perfect horror book, including illustrations from actual cemeteries and other haunted places in New Orleans, fans of Madeline Roux’s Asylum series will be glad to see a return to Brookline.”
Praise for Asylum
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Madeleine Roux’s Asylum takes the fondest dream of our collective nerdy childhood and handily turns it into the scariest collective nightmare.”
“I started reading this one at my desk in broad daylight and still got goose bumps.”
