More About the Author

Kristen Selleck is avidly evil. Until recently, she worked as a mad scientist. After several diabolical attempts at world domination proved unsuccessful (most notably, building an army of robots from used pipettes, empty reagent boxes, and other things left lying around the lab), she decided to pick up the pen. She used the pen to poke an annoying lady at the gas station in the eyeball. Then she decided to write. She has been known to speak with a strong Russian accent. This is inexplicable due to the fact that she was born in Detroit. It has also been documented that she likes vodka, roller coasters, things which are purple, and blowing things up with dry ice. She abhors kittens, wood paneling popularized in the 1970's, and her arch-nemesis Jimmy (the Evil Overlord of Specimen Processing). She was last known to reside in Grand Rapids, and may be in the company of two evil apprentices, and her devoted henchman, Shad. If seen, please contact the FBI immediately (she owes someone in Accounting a sandwich).

Colorful characters and a plot that wastes no time getting started, this story is rich in the telling and has something for everyone: intrigue, mystery, hauntings and secrets, seasoned with a little romance on the side. The fact that it is set in beautiful northern Michigan is an added plus! The writing is so descriptive I was drawn into the story as if the characters were really there before me. Asylum drew me in and held me to the very last page!

I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy Asylum or not, but after the first chapter I was hooked. I didn't want to put the book down! I had to force myself to put it down a couple times, but finally had an entire day to do nothing but read. I was concerned about Chloe, and definitely wanted her and Seth to hook up. Sam had me very concerned with her drinking. I wasn't too sure about Prof. Willard, but ended up liking him. I hope to be able to find the second book of the series! I am eagerly anticipating what will happen next to Chloe, Sam, and Seth.

The only off-putting part were the series of typos that I discovered -- and a few missing words that I almost didn't notice. And, at the end, the misspelling of the word "altar". "Altar" is not the same as "alter". Proofreading could have been better, so I give the book 4 stars.

This review does contain some spoilers--
I really enjoyed the book and I was all ready to give it 5 stars at the start but at the end I just could not do it. There were some parts like other readers mentioned that had some holes and this book really needs to be proofread but my issues overall were a bit different.
I loved, loved this book until the end of it where Chloe is possessed by George, I really felt that part was drawn out and I was about ready to skip ahead to where she woke up! I did not overly care for the reason the haunting was taking place, Abraham's men!? I really felt a bit disappointed at this part the whole bad men thing just was not what I was hoping for and I felt as if it could have been much better with another twist or plot there.
Chloe finally getting a night with Seth, them alone in his bed and after the night they all had she has to get up and go read the book her dad gave her? It could not wait until the morning? The whole relationship is a mess with her questioning everything and asking him while he is with her at every turn, they finally are happy and alone I wish she had stayed.

The whole book tho was a page turner and was well written I really enjoyed it and I will read the next one as soon as it comes out. If you like paranormal books then this is a book that you should pick up and read.

I am not normally a reader of books like this one. But there is something about this book that grabs you and holds your interest. I think all of us can find a little bit of Chloe, Sam, and Seth in ourselves. It is worth the time to read. It wont take long cause you wont want to put it down.i am already looking forward to the next book.

This suspenseful work of young adult fiction held my attention from page one. While the protagonist is very down to earth, the plot is anything but. Set in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula, this tale will make you question everything from modern psychology to the paranormal. This is a must read for any fan of the mystery genre!

This was a real bargain for only a dollar :) The characters and dialogue were fresh and realistic. The story was well thought out and engaging.

It's a quick, easy read and definitely worth it. I look forward to the next installment :)

Okay, I'll start by saying the story was VERY good. It hooked me in and I kept getting angry that I had homework to do because all I wanted to do was read this book! I identified with Chloe a lot. She reminded me a lot of myself and I think that's the main reason why I was so hooked, because she was coming out of her shell and becoming a better person, and I have those same hopes for myself. I loved her and Seth together, too! I want a Seth of my own after reading this! Also since I am going to be attending a supposedly haunted University in the Fall, this really got my blood pumping and my mind wandering. It was a good read if you like suspense/horror type novels. The author knew when to switch from happy to scary to sad, etc.
However, the author obviously published this herself. There were many grammar errors. It had improper use of punctuation, used the wrong there/their/they're and then/than. This book needs at least another round of editing. If this doesn't bother you too much, it's nothing to fret about, but I personally do not enjoy spelling and grammar errors in the books I read. It was like reading fan fiction almost because it was so badly written at parts, whether it be the grammar, the spelling, or just the overall development of the plot. There were definitely parts where I found myself getting really irritated because the book, as entertaining as it was, hit boring chunks that really could have been written better.
Overall, it was pretty good, despite all the drawbacks. I probably won't read it again, but I certainly do not regret reading it. Also at the time I bought it, it was free, so I can hang with the drawbacks because of the awesome price for what it is. I will probably read the next book if it's free again.
