All families have secrets. Some are just far darker than others.
Pennsylvania, 1895. Evil and madness hide within the walls of the Gaskell's gothic, country mansion, and some believe ghosts roam the halls to torture the living. Emily Radcliffe, the Gaskell's governess, has her own dark past, one she has been hiding from under the shelter of this sinister home.
A bloodthirsty killer escapes from a nearby mental hospital, leaving a trail of carnage and cat-and-mouse games through the streets of Allegheny City, and giving the police the impression that the Gaskell family may be his eventual target. Mystery, madness and carnage gradually surround Emily as she becomes trapped in this dark world of secrets and sin.
Dark Asylum is a tale of the late Edgar Gaskell, a man who is the key to unlocking the horrifying secrets of a tortured family and horrors beyond imagination... Only read Dark Asylum if you wish to suffer...
"Dark Asylum bills itself as a 'Victorian tale of madness, mayhem and slaughter' and it certainly fulfils that brief ... I really enjoyed the atmospheric start and the build up of characters, [and] I particularly enjoyed the obvious nods to it's Gothic heritage ... enjoyable, well written with some good characters and some nice ideas..." - Black Abyss
