Summary

Summary

In the chilling second book in the New York Times bestselling Asylum series, three teens must return to the asylum that still haunts their dreams to end the nightmare once and for all. With the page-turning suspense and horror that made Asylum such a standout, and featuring found photographs from real vintage carnivals, Sanctum is a mind-bending reading experience that's perfect for fans of the smash hit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Dan, Abby, and Jordan remain traumatized by the summer they shared in the Brookline asylum. Much as they'd love to move on, many questions remain, and someone is determined to keep the terror alive, sending the teens photos of an old-timey carnival, with no note and no name. Forsaking their plan never to go back, the teens return to New Hampshire College under the guise of a weekend for prospective students, and there they realize that the carnival from the photos is not only real, it's here on campus, apparently for the first time in many years.

Sneaking away from sample classes and college parties, Dan and his friends lead a tour of their own--one through the abandoned houses and hidden places of a surrounding town. Camford is hiding a terrible past, and the truth behind Dan's connection to the asylum's evil warden is more terrifying than Dan ever imagined.

Don't miss Madeleine Roux's all-new gothic horror novel, House of Furies.

Booklist Review

The sequel to Asylum (2013) lacks the potency and freshness of the first title, partially because of the need to summarize previous events and circumstances, but primarily because even creepy carnivals can't begin to compete with haunted abandoned madhouses. High-school seniors Daniel, Abby, and Jordan return to New Hampshire College, ostensibly on a college tour, but really to follow the clues poor possessed Felix gives them to solve the mystery of Brookline Asylum's insane warden. This time the scary elements are a traditional carnival (a campus tradition revived for the visiting prospective students) and a tour of various haunted houses. With plentiful old photographs of carnival acts, Roux works the creepy verisimilitude that made Asylum such a page-turner. The haunted-house explorations are especially cinematic and spooky. While the side plot involving a secret society is more than a little hard to believe, Roux knows how to keep the action rolling and the reader hooked. A confusing and abrupt ending promises a third volume in the series.--Carton, Debbie Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up- Dan, Abby, and Jordan are forced to revisit their traumatic past at Brookline Asylum when mysterious photos draw them back to town and to dark secrets. This is a seriously spooky tale; purchase this series where quirky horror is popular. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
