Raves and Reviews

"Greyfriars Reformatory delivers on suspense and a classic asylum setting that brings to mind novels like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The novel’s greatest strength, though, is pacing. The teen characters are three-dimensional, and the story is anchored by a strong sense of atmosphere."

– Chicago Review of Books

“This is the perfect example of an intense and terrifying horror-psychological suspense hybrid. It is fast paced but with enough detail to get you hooked on more than the plot.”

– Becky Spratford, RA For All

“Lee has proven time and time again that he can write some of the creepiest scenes out there and this one didn’t let me down […] If you love institutionally set horror, you’ll dig this.”

– Kendall Reviews

“This is my idea of a great horror novel; scary moments, bloody scenes and the ‘Grey Girl’ reminds me a lot of ghostly characters in Japanese books.”

– The Book Lovers Boudoir

"The perfect read for any horror and supernatural fans looking for area to get under there skin, I cannot wait to see what this author comes up with next!"

– The Twist and Turn Book Blog

"The story took such an unexpected and clever turn, while still making every little piece of the puzzle slot into place, and I was reeling."

– From Belgium with Book Love

“I loved this book - it has lashings of bleak Gothic horror, strongly drawn characters and a claustrophobic atmosphere, but the story is grounded in acts of injustice and betrayal which see disturbingly realistic and which have a terrible impact on all here.”

– Blue Book Balloon

“Frazer Lee has created a horror story that lingers in my head. His fantastic world-building and characters made it so believable and I really didn’t want to leave Emily and the girls there.”

– Sharon Beyond the Books

“A phenomenon in horror fiction”
