Author: Megan Shepherd
Synopsis: Inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this tantalizing sequel to Megan Shepherd’s gothic suspense novel, The Madman’s Daughter, explores the hidden natures of those we love and how far we’ll go to save them from themselves.
Back in London after her trip to Dr. Moreau’s horrific island, Juliet is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget her father’s legacy. But soon it’s clear that someone—or something—hasn’t forgotten her, as people close to Juliet start falling victim to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes. Has one of her father’s creations also escaped the island? As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.
River’s Review (4 Stars)
Huge thank you to the publisher for providing me with an advanced copy. I’m writing this honest review to say thank you
Wow. And wow that ending. So I read The Madman’s Daughter for my creepy Halloween read and somehow I ended up reading this for my Christmas read… and it was bloody and not very merry at all. But very brilliant nontheless.
I can’t say too much without giving anything away, but if you liked the first book, you’ll love this. It’s just as dark, just as gritty, and just as horrific as the first one. It’s also sexy and smart and I love Juliet so much.
CANNOT wait for the next one though, so can’t wait to see where that’s going.
