Learn why readers love USA Today bestselling author Eva Pohler's thrillers by reading this young adult series about a teen who's sent to an island for what she thinks is a retreat only to learn that she's a patient to a doctor who practices experimental therapy.
This young adult psychological thriller by USA Today bestselling author Eva Pohler will leave you breathless.
Seventeen-year-old Daphne Janus goes to an island retreat with her neighbor and best friend, Cam. She doesn't know that she's been sent for experimental "suicide therapy" that crosses ethical lines--something the doctor calls "living art." Between the legends of the Chumash Indians, the ghost stories, and Cam's blatant lies, Daphne doesn't know what's real and what's a therapeutic exercise orchestrated by the Purgatorium, nor does she know whom to trust. When her horse bucks her off during a trail ride, and she becomes lost on the "haunted" side of the island, she begins to wonder if her parents sent her there to help her or to punish her.
After enduring Dr. Hortense Gray’s experimental therapy on an island off the coast of California at a compound known as The Purgatorium, seventeen-year-old Daphne is delighted to learn she will now have a chance to have revenge on her parents and boyfriend by participating in their therapy. It’s payback time, and Daphne can’t wait to begin. Dr. Gray defends her dubious methods by claiming that all treatments come with risks, but when real bullets fly and lives are at stake, Daphne decides she wants no part of it and hatches a plan to save her family.
In this final book of The Purgatorium Series, The Calibans, Daphne returns to the island to save her best friend, Cam, and the other “Calibans” who’ve been brainwashed by Dr. Gray; but, once again, things aren’t what they seem. Daphne’s entire world comes crashing down along with the Purgatorium when federal ATF officers arrive with a warrant during a dangerous exercise. What she believed to be so isn’t, and the blurry line between art and reality leaves her reeling.
