The heart-stopping third book in the New York Times bestselling Asylum series follows three teens as they take a senior-year road trip to one of America's most haunted cities, uncovering dangerous secrets from their past along the way. With all the thrills, chills, and eerie found photographs that led Publishers Weekly to call Asylum "a strong YA debut," Catacomb is perfect for fans for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Sometimes the past is better off buried.

Senior year is finally over. After all they've been through, Dan, Abby, and Jordan are excited to take one last road trip together, and they're just not going to think about what will happen when the summer ends. But on their way to visit Jordan's uncle in New Orleans, the three friends notice that they're being followed . . . and photographed. Then Dan starts receiving messages from someone he didn't expect to hear from again—someone who died last Halloween.

When the trio arrives in New Orleans and the strange occurrences only escalate, Dan is forced to accept that everything that has happened to him in the past year may not be a coincidence but fate—a fate that ties Dan to a group called the Bone Artists, who have a sinister fascination with notorious killers of the past.

Now Dan's only hope is that he will make it out of his senior trip alive.

Don’t miss the spine-tingling prequel, Escape from Asylum. Fans can read an exclusive sneak preview in the Catacomb paperback edition.

Love the third book! Kept me interested the whole time. Answered questions about Dan that were left own in the first two. So happy!

I'm a huge fan of the Asylum series and I'm tempted to say this was my favorite one yet. Lots of twist and turns that make you second guess what you think is going to happen. Madeline does a great job of making you feel like your right in the mix of Dan and his friends. Really hope there will be a 4th was hard to tell at the ending.

Once I stopped Looking for a horror tale, it was okay... Believe it or not, I liked this book so much more than the previous two! I learned my lesson and stopped looking at the book as a horror story and saw it for what it was: a modern day Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys sort of mystery thriller. Dan, Abby and Jordan are in New Orleans now- looking for his parents and more. People are dying, losing appendages, but at least they're receiving useless clues! Instead of making the story more mysterious, it just annoyed me. But the story on Dan- that was pretty good. More than likely, when I get so many books, I need to donate to make way for the new, these will be in the 'Give Away' stack. I may never read these books again. They didn't hold me long enough to do anything more than finish them. I was let down, looking for serious ghosts and haunts. Instead, I got Scooby and the gang. BUT, if you take on the books with a YA mystery-sleuths attitude instead of horrific, you won't be let down. ​ The Asylum series is done and I can now find a real fright! **Audiobook from my, personal library.

Catacomb was a good finish to a fantastic series. Not the best out of the three books. But, Roux didn't let me down.
