        Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose and wondering what that disgusting smell is Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a attractive option.

    1. There are young adults dealing with young adult problems in this story but alongside that, young adults dealing with extremely adult (and horrifying) problems. This story is a wonderful blend of YA fiction and eldritch horror, with characters that are easy to relate to and grow attached to. I'm not familiar with every YA book out there by any means, but nearly all of the teenagers in this story are as complex as any adult, and I feel like that's actually not all that common in YA books (brooding [...]


    2. Books like Daughters of Arkham are the reason I fell in love with reading. The story sucks you in very early on, and I found myself completely unable to think about anything else until I finished it, stealing every free second I had to just read one page! The dialogue and internal struggles of the main characters feel genuine, and they don't seem dumbed down like we so often see in YA fiction, which makes it a story that I'd reccomend to anyone over 12, not 12-18.The storyline has some moments t [...]


    3. I throughly enjoyed Daughters of Arkham.It was a pleasure getting lost in the beautiful scenery and rich history of this magically constructed otherworldly town; through truth be told if it were a tangible place to visit I don't know if I would step foot there, not after what I know now. The story is told in 3rd person with many shorter chapters, most of which are dedicated to each individual character. "One more chapter" can be a dangerous game sometimes, haha. This approach gives you an intere [...]


    4. When you hear the term, "Young Adult" with regards to book series, it is usually steeped in images of the Twilight or Divergent series. What Justin Robinson has been able to do is give us (the readers) a fully thought-out story about young people that is both real and engaging. Daughters of Arkham is one of those books that pulls you in from the very start! Abigail Thorndike , is an intriguing and genuine character who you want to want to see return in future books! And the town of Arkham itself [...]


    5. AmazingWhat did I just read? This book was absolutely amazing. Words can't begin to describe how I feel about this book. I read a lot of YA and this book is different from the rest. It's unlike any book I ever read from the genre. The characters felt real, they weren't perfect. The ending, man that ending. I need to know what's going to happen next.


    6. Fabulous YA book. I started it in the summer but misplaced it. Then I picked it back up and could put it down! I want book two!!!!


    7. Daughters of Arkham is the first book I've read in my adult life that I couldn't pick up before bedtime because I would either: read until 3am before I realized NO I HAVE TO STOP. I HAVE TO BE UP IN A FEW HOURS, or, if I did manage to pry myself away, couldn't sleep not from fear (though there is horror) but curiosity. DOA is the type of book that reminds me why I love reading so much.Some others have commented that they were scared. I suppose I'm a little dark myself because it was the dark par [...]


    8. Another gripping book by Robinson! With its mix of H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Daniel Handler (think of The Basic Eight, not A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Roman Polanski, all mixed with a YA setting, it's a truly unique achievement. As someone who is, by all objective measures, too old to care about a group of 14-16 year old kids, I really wasn't too interested in this book and only read it because I'm a fan of Robinson's previous work (on a related note, I was previously unfamiliar wit [...]


    9. Edge of my seat through the whole book, but not in a painful way. In a "holy crap, where is this going and this is awesome" kind of way. That doesn't give you much about the storybut I think that's okay because I didn't know anything going into the book and I was pleasantly entertained by the turns the story took. Can't wait for the next book! :D




    10. Very enjoyable addition to the Lovecraft universe. I was continually intrigued by where the plot was going and how dark it would get, given the age of the main characters and nature of the plot. Great balance, in the end. Looking forward to sequels. Two drawbacks: authors' real-world references (stores, television, etc.) was out of place and interrupted the feel of the Arkham setting. Also, there were many editing and formatting errors (Kindle) that were distracting--probably the worst case I've [...]


    11. The book is very well written. The character development throughout the story makes the reader truly care what will happen by the end. While the story for the most part seems like it will resolve all questions by the finale it leaves a great ending that leaves the reader excitedly waiting for the nect installment of the series.


    12. Sometimes you're handed a book and it turns out to be nothing like you were expecting. That's what happened to me with Daughters of Arkham. For some reason, I was expecting something a bit more Batman related. I blame that on the fact that when I think Arkham, I think Arkham Asylum and that I picked this book up from the author at a convention. My brain was firmly in comic mode. This book is not that. It's a very well written Young Adult horror novel. So well written that as someone who doesn't [...]


    13. Daughters of Arkham is a successful endeavor at taking only threadbare Lovecraft elements and re purposing them as a young adult novel, the first in a series. The novel reads as a YA detective-occult-thriller, and concerns the exploits of four friends looking into the town’s dark past, a town ruled by the titular Daughters. The lead character, Abby, is also pregnant after am amnesiac night at a carnival, and the town is full of Innsmouth-inspired fish-folk that only she can see. The characters [...]


    14. The characters were compelling and the mystery behind it all was intriguing. It did take me a while to get into it and the story lagged a bit, which is probably why it took so long for me to finish. Repetitive language and descriptors didn't help, either. Overall, I enjoyed reading Daughters of Arkham.


    15. Great Story!I'm ready for the next book now!Fast paced, fun fantasy story. Great characters; appreciate the way they are written. Original yet familiar, 5 stars. Didn't want to put it down.


    16. Fun read. Interesting characters and plot, but much more YA than I was expecting and I found the ending a little quick and disappointing.
