It will scare your pants off and leave you frantically waiting for Book Two. Try not to have nightmares once you've started reading the book.

Walking through the halls you can hear the screams of tortured patients. Orderlies have their way with as many patients as they want. If you chose to visit you may feel like someone is after you in the worst way. Abuse reigns at Grandview. Then you wake from your dream remembering some of the other horrors of your mind. The story is about Jason, his paranormal investigators Michael, his girlfriend Samantha, J.C. and Jason's wife Abby. Horrors await the five as they travel to Grandview to make a visit to the asylum. Once inside the asylum events begin to unfold that will leave your mouth dry with anticipation for learning what's around the next corner or in the next room. The ghosts like new company but the big question is - will they allow the five to leave?"

- Martha Decker/Journalist

Parasylum, The Trilogy Begins, is based on Paranormal gone wrong! An inexperienced investigative team of enthusiasts enter a decaying Asylum that time has forgotten. The five members of this paranormal team are quickly met with evil residents that have been craving vengeance for the torturous experiments they have endured decades ago. When we think of a horror book being written, we imagine the ghoulish content, the override of killings and the lustful antics of a good old scare. Parasylum delivers much more than that with the mind bending illusions that only one tries to eclipse within their mindset. It has only been released in its first week and already captivating critics around the world. It has been said to be, “One of the best horror/thriller rides ever!” by Mike Kalinowski, Schiffer’s Book Review Critic.

The presence of the book alone from onset looking at the cover is enough to bring shivers down your spine, but it’s when you first open the cover you realize just from the signature markings and special detail taken in manifesting more than just words on a page, it carries the air of eerie ness as the artwork within the pages captivate the reader. As one walks through the mindset of Mr. Thomas, you can clearly see the footprints of someone who has actually travelled to many of these haunted locations only to scribe into words what was encounters from such relics and ghosts from beyond. Frightening, absolutely! Robbie Thomas, authored this magical piece of horror, which weaves its way within the walls of a desolate Asylum where a team of inexperienced paranormal investigators come face to face with the utmost evil that can be summoned from the abyss of no return. It will captivate you, hold you tight while you truly struggle within yourself throughout the book only to get to the end, which has a complete ninety degree turn that will leave you shaking your head wanting more, much more!

I belong to a paranormal team and we have come across some creep Sh*t! BUT, this book and and the way it is written, holy crap. Like the one Critic said, "run and run fast if we ever investigated a place like Parasylum". It did give me shivers reading it as it lent itself to drawing me right in the story. Takes a lot to do that with me but this book did that with ease. I love the representation of an "inexperienced" Paranormal team and how they worked together, it so resembles teams out there and yes mine too. Just crazy to see this put into words and the freaky-ness of it all. I know Robbie Thomas is well known in the Paranormal field and with everyone in it, he is really looked upon as one of the pioneers for many things. I loved his other book, Paranormal Encounters and that too was totally off the wall. Haven't had time yet to get Time Shift another one of his books but I plan on it. Well written Mr. Thomas, great work dude!
