Catacomb: A Review (Asylum #3)


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 are apparently being followed.. And Dan starts receiving phone messages from someone he didn’t expect to hear from again—someone who died last Halloween.

As the strange occurrences 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 connection with a notorious killer from the past. Now, Dan’s only hope is that he will make it out of his senior trip alive.

In this finale to the New York Times bestselling Asylum series, found photographs help tell the story of three teens who exist on the line between past and present, genius and insanity.

My Review:

Following this series with Dan, Jordan, and Abby has been an adventure, but I do have to say the last book didn't live up to the last two.

It could be that it wasn't focused so much on the creepy Asylum, Brookline, anymore, but... *shrug* this finale to the series wasn't my favorite. In fact, I was left hanging, thinking there would be another book. Plus, I didn't feel the characters grew very much or really learned anything. The creep factor was there, but it was all kind of stale.

This was kind of a bummer considering how much I loved the other two.

However, the writing style was just as great.

If you like creepy stories, this series is wonderful, but I don't think I'd recommend the last book.

2 out of 5!

  1. That cover is definitely creepy but I don't think this series would be more me either.
