Editorial Reviews


"Emilie Autumn goes to those dark places that haunt all of us and she is unashamed to do so. All of her characters are dealing with their own particular demon(s) and Autumn conveys each with exquisite storytelling. This book will make you question who is sane and who is insane...and the answer isn't always what you expect."
~ Andrea Loewy

"The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls is lots of fun, a kind of "women in prison" movie with an (Oliver) Twist. It's cleverly structured, bouncing effortlessly between the Victorian and modern eras, and comes complete with scary, perilous situations, vivid characters--plucky heroines, evil villains, and intelligent, talking rats--to an ultimately thoughtful, poignant ending. Put down your Dickens for a bit and give it a read."
~ Jack Ketchum, acclaimed author of The Lost and The Girl Next Door

"This is a highly stylized adventure through a tale of a twisted mind or two told with heart and beautiful vocabulary. It is a true pleasure to be invited into her story."
~ Sarah Arroyo

"I've read the original story, but there is enough new content in here for it to seem like a whole new story in some ways. It's dark and harrowing, but also full of hope. Totally worth it. Buy it, brew a cup of tea, and lose yourself. You won't regret it."
~ Doc Brown

"Dreamy prose of a nightmare situation as two women reflect across time about their mutual incarceration and mental illnesses."
~ Christopher Sheets

"At one point, I had to put it down and weep because someone had finally been able to put into words this feeling I had had for years but was never able to articulate."
~ Sarahjane Morrison

"Proof that no matter how far you go, or how much you endure, you can always find home. In the darkest of times there will always be someone to guide you, and you will always belong."
~ Dustin Dalton

"The main story is phenomenal and so incredibly unique with a very important message (maybe a few important messages), that captured my imagination in an indescribable way that only a few stories have managed. But even more than that, even more poignant to me than the story of Emily, was the story of Emilie; having Bipolar Disorder myself, parts of this book felt like she reached into my head and pulled my messy thoughts, and arranged them on paper to articulate them in a way I have rarely been able to do myself."
~ Deilica Gold

"With each iteration of this book, it only gets more alive. Whether you are familiar with the hard-cover and audiobook versions or entirely new to the Asylum, this ebook has something very special in the form of clues, a treasure hunt, and embedded audio clips protected by puzzling passwords."
~ Carly O'Connell

"...this book is a gateway into a world of empowerment and understanding. The community she (Emilie Autumn) has built through her music and storytelling is one of overwhelming love and acceptance."
~ Autumn Mourning

"Stark, brutal, honest, but at the same time uplifting and inspirational. This isn't merely a story, it's an you'll be very happy you went on."
~ April Simerly
