“A text that will haunt you like your own nightmares… A gothic tale, chilling in its treatment of the anguish and suffering that sublimate the beauty of our darkness.”
— Élodie, Gibert Joseph Barbès (Paris)
“Lovers of sick books, pounce on La Maison des Épreuves. Massive shock!
— Librairie Mollat (Bordeaux)
“This coming-of-age-gothic-multiple-choice-meta-survival-game (you can breathe now) is a UFO in this January’s literary releases. Once immersed in this book you will find yourself an integral part of it, a spectator/actor and not a voyeur. A shocking novel that pulsates and absorbs you… literally. ‘It is aliiiive!’”
— Roxane, La Librairie du Tramway (Lyon)
