Catacomb | Madeleine Roux
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 againsomeone 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 fatea 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.

Book 129🎧
Not quite as creepy as the first 2 but I did like that this time we got more of Dans backstory!

Someone knows what happened to Dans parents, so the trio go on a search…but the Bone Artist has other plans for them.☠️

LindaLappin great cover. I also have book with a search through the Paris catacombs... though quite different

BeeMagical @LindaLappin that sounds interesting! What book is it! 10mo
LindaLappin @BeeMagical sorry I missed your comment -- I am new to Litsy. The book with a search through the catacombs is Loving Modigliani: The Afterlife of Jeanne Hébuterne - another book of mine has several visits to the Etruscan tombs of the Viterbo area, near where I live. (The Etruscan) 9mo

I was unsure if this series could get any better but I was wrong as soon as I read this book. Everything in the first three books leading up to this book were intriguing but this one in particular I devoured. I am excited to read the prequel book and the novellas!

🎧📚 It took me more than a minute to realize that I skipped book two. Still read it. I like & own this series.

Three teenagers go on a senior year road trip. So much happens. Of course it‘s a little predictable but a fun read.

They head to NOLA, get messages from someone who died on Halloween last year, Dan finds out that he‘s tied to a crazy sick group called the Bone Artists & finds out maybe he‘s not as alone as he thought he was.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

⭐⭐⭐⭐ The third installment of the Asylum series brings us to New Orleans where superstitions are a normal way of life. The main characters find themselves chasing leads to find Dan's parents. These leads end up in big trouble for the three friends. Once again, we find Dan in a scary situation that no one knows if he will ever be able to escape. A great #ya #mystery novel!

This is the third book in the Asylum series by Madeleine Roux. Dan and his friends head to New Orleans to settle Jordan into his uncles house. While there, Dan learns more about his parents and why they died. All in all, it was a god book. I didn‘t live out like I did the first two in the series. There is a fourth book, a prequel.

I decided to finish off the Asulum series.
I feel this way all the time. Because work is so draining for me, I like my weekends low key with not a lot of socializing. For the most part.

After the first two books, this didn‘t really flow for me in the context of the series. I got excited but the change of scenery to New Orleans. I just felt the first and second book flowed more and were more engaging.

I liked this book the most out of the three. I think a lot had to do with the New Orleans setting and the whole plot involving the Bone Artists, which I found fascinating. Honestly, I would love to read a whole novel dedicated to the Bone Artists. My one issue with this series, is that Roux has a bad habit of making her villains go into very cliche “mustache twirling” dialogue. That aside, it‘s still fun & great to break out of a Reading Slump.

Uh, Abby, you guys are three books into a trilogy. By now you should be well aware that it is NEVER “someone‘s sick idea of a joke”. 😂

ulrichyumiodd Haha! I need to read book 2 and 3! 4y

I for sure thought the last book would ruin the series for me. It did not disappoint! It tired up loose ends and was just as amazing as the first two.

This series has been one of those can‘t put down kinda reads. Delightfully creepy with the real photos dispersed throughout, and it‘s intriguing ghost story mystery. So far I give all three books ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Be not too happy nor too proud, beware your luck, crow not too loud; the Bone Artist steals and then he leaves: the Bone Artist, the Conjurer, the Prince of the Body Thieves.”

So far I‘m really enjoying book number 3. I‘ll have to get the novella and the prequel if this keeps up!

This book was okay. Madeleine Roux is a good author but the plot just felt rather predictable to me. However if you are looking for a slightly creepy and easy read this is the way to go. It's easy to finish this book in just an afternoon.

This wasn't my favorite book in the series. I didn't care for the ending and I felt that the story line wasn't quite as compelling as the others. Also, I feel like it was a bit disjointed and there were some loose ends that were never fulfilled.

BooksTeasAndBookishThings Yeah, nothing beats the first one in my opinion. ♥️ 6y

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. But, I didn't feel the same sense of dread or creepiness in this one. For me it was just so-so.

Catacomb here we come!

Karkar The description says that if you like Miss Peregrine that you will like this series... Do you think that holds true? I have seen these before but hesitated on reading, I loved the Miss P series 6y
HiddenGemBooks @Karkar I do! It's very good, it has the same aspect of telling a story through photography. She has a unique YA writing style. I like it and I LOVED miss p. 6y
Readingismyescape Ooh. I loved the first two books. Can't wait to read this one. I also love the Miss P series @Karkar 6y

This series just got increasingly creepier as it went on. I enjoyed this book. I was a fan of the the main trilogy had different mysteries that all connected.

Please PLEASE tell me that this is not the last book in the series. It just keeps getting better with each book. I love the story that Dan and his friends are going on and I don't want it to end. Well done Madeleine Roux once again!
