Overview

The past is back to haunt them.

Dan, Abby, and Jordan remain traumatized by the summer they shared in the Brookline asylum. Much as they'd love to move on, someone is determined to keep the terror alive, sending the teens photos of an old-timey carnival, with no note and no name. Finally, Dan receives a list of coordinates pointing to abandoned houses in the town near Brookline, and he is convinced that the only way to end this nightmare once and for all is to return to New Hampshire College and follow the trail.

But when Dan and his friends arrive under the guise of a prospective students' weekend, they discover that the carnival from their photos isn't just real, it's here on campus—it has returned for the first time in many years. And as they sneak away from their undergrad hosts to visit the houses on their list, they find secrets far darker than anything they'd imagined.

In this thrilling and creepy sequel to the New York Times bestselling Asylum, found photographs from real vintage carnivals help tell the story of three teens who exist on the line between past and present, genius and insanity.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With its well-chosen vintage photographs and fast-breaking action, this new novel by Madeleine Roux (Alison Hewitt Is Trapped) is the perfect follow-up to her haunting series launch Asylum. For youthful heroes Dan, Abby, and Jordan, there seems to be no rest. Their previously unplanned return to New Hampshire College reveals anew that eerie things seem to be happening everywhere. (P.S. This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition contains a postcard collection of evocative images that readers will recognize.)

Booklist
“With plentiful old photographs of carnival acts, Roux works the creepy verisimilitude thatmade Asylum such a page-turner. The haunted-house explorations are especially cinematic and spooky...Roux knows how to keep the action rolling and the reader hooked.”
School Library Journal

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.

The eerie atmosphere of Asylum (2013) has a hard time making itself felt in this sequel.After Dan Crawford and his friends were nearly murdered at New Hampshire College, the site of a former mental hospital, they find themselves haunted. Abby and Jordan receive cryptic old carnival photos, and Dan is urged by the boy who almost killed him to return to NHC and "follow" the photographs. Dan, Abby and Jordan pose as prospective freshmen, arriving to find crowds of unrealistic college students and a bizarre mess involving hypnotism, a mysterious stone and a cult called the Scarlets. Plagued by what might be ghosts or hallucinations, Dan uses his vague mental connection with the asylum's former warden to investigate the Scarlets and discovers that he's not the only one with ties to the asylum. The plot meanders, and the characters develop very little beyond a romance between Dan and Abby; Dan's possible relationship with the warden remains unexplored, and his own mental illness is so unspecific that it's unclear whether he's possessed or hallucinating. Mock photos of carnival performers are interesting but don't always match the text, so they feel disruptive. The ending delivers a disturbing moment with creepy implications, but the disorganized buildup still reduces its impact.Fans of Asylum will want to read this, but they shouldn't expect a logical continuation of the first book. (Fiction. 14-18)
