The sequel to New York Times bestseller ASYLUM, SANCTUM follows Dan and his friends back to Brookline, where they are determined to find closure from their haunted past. With more mind-bending revelations, thrilling action, and creepy found photographs, SANCTUM wil keep readers guessing until the very end.
Back at their high schools, Dan, Abby, and Jordan are plagued with nightmares about their traumatic summer in the Brookline asylum. Abby and Jordan just want to forget about it all, but Dan is convinced the only way to get over what happened is to return to campus and close the case once and for all - especially after he gets a letter from his old roommate, Felix, with a string of cryptic numbers that correspond to addresses around Camford. So the three friends return to New Hampshire college for a prospective students weekend around Halloween, and they are paired with three undergrad hosts who promise to take them to sample classes and even a few parties.
But on the very first campus tour, a prospective student in the group stares eerily at Dan, then promptly tries to throw himself out of a second story window. And as the weekend continues, other college students aren't acting like themselves, either. Sneaking away from the group, Dan and his friends track down the houses from Felix's letter, and find old photos and letters from the town's twisted past - some that predate the asylum, from when Warden Crawford was still a child obsessed with a creepy carnival that came to town, and some from when the asylum closed down, and all its allegedly cured patients were let loose in the town. Those patients include a man who went on to become the Postman, a man who lured girls into Camford in the 70's for a cult-like group - girls that were never seen again.
Finally, Dan discovers that this cult never left Camford, and some of its members are actually students at NHC, led by the professor who tried to trap the friends in the asylum over the summer. It seems the Warden's experiments on patients were influenced by the dark brand of hypnosis he learned as a kid at the carnival. And with a number of college students under the Warden's control, Dan and his friends have fallen right into his years-long trap. Now they can only hope to make it out of this campus visit weekend alive.

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | An Asylum Novel | The sequel to New York Times bestseller ASYLUM, SANCTUM follows Dan and his friends back to Brookline, where they are determined to find closure from their haunted past. With more mind-bending revelations, thrilling action, and creepy found photographs, SANCTUM wil keep readers guessing until the very end | In this chilling, fast-paced sequel to the New York Times bestselling Asylum , which Publishers Weekly called "a strong YA debut that reveals the enduring impact of buried trauma on a place," three teens must return to the asylum that still haunts their dreams to end the nightmare once and for all. With the page-turning suspense and horror that made Asylum such a standout, and featuring found photographs from real vintage carnivals, Sanctum is a mind-bending reading experience that's perfect for fans of the smash hit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children . Dan, Abby, and Jordan remain traumatized by the summer they shared in the Brookline asylum. Much as they'd love to move on, many questions remain, and someone is determined to keep the terror alive, sending the teens photos of an old-timey carnival, with no note and no name. Forsaking their plan never to go back, the teens return to New Hampshire College under the guise of a weekend for prospective students, and there they realize that the carnival from the photos is not only real, it's here on campus, apparently for the first time in many years. Sneaking away from sample classes and college parties, Dan and his friends lead a tour of their own-one through the abandoned houses and hidden places of a surrounding town. Camford is hiding a terrible past, and the truth behind Dan's connection to the asylum's evil warden is more terrifying than Dan ever imagined. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 400 gr | 211x139x21 mm | 352 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9780062351821
