Asylum Lake by R.A. Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Asylum Lake is one of the best books I've read, and lately there have been many in the "best books" category. Thankfully this is the first of at least a duology! There's so much more to understand and explore; it's not a case of loose ends left untied, because almost everything is sorted out by the thrilling end. Instead, it's like uncovering a family history, or a sordid episode in history that's gone untold: Layer upon layer is peeled away, revealing new secrets; and yet, there's always more to find out. I found this book exquisite, and unforgettable. I'm on edge waiting for the sequel. How often can a reader say that?
Asylum Lake combines mysteries, Supernatural, paranormal, thriller, and horror elements, in a novel in which the characterizations are subtly but cleverly tweaked; the plotting is unexpected, and the author manages well not to telegraph anything he doesn't wish to reveal yet. I definitely recommend it to any reader.
