The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
In the darkest places, even love is deadly.
Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself in London—working as a maid,
attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal
that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her
father's gruesome experiments. But when she learns he is alive and
continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to
find out if the accusations are true.
Accompanied by her father's
handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway,
Edward—both of whom she is deeply drawn to—Juliet travels to the island,
only to discover the depths of her father's madness: He has
experimented on animals so that they resemble, speak, and behave as
humans. And worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is
killing the island's inhabitants. Torn between horror and scientific
curiosity, Juliet knows she must end her father's dangerous experiments
and escape her jungle prison before it's too late. Yet as the island
falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father's genius—and
madness—in her own blood.
Inspired by H. G. Wells's classic The
Island of Dr. Moreau, The Madman's Daughter is a dark and breathless
Gothic thriller about the secrets we'll do anything to know and the
truths we'll go to any lengths to protect.
