Summary

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. Perfect for fans of Libba Bray.

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, her past bubbling to the surface, and her life threatened by an obsessive killer--Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This follow-up to The Madman's Daughter (2013) finds Juliet Moreau in London, far from the surgical horrors of her father's island or so she thinks. Edward, whose love she'd spurned, has made it back, too, and his monstrous alter ego, the Beast, is to blame for a rash of brutal killings. Is there a way to save Edward before the Beast's violence turns to Juliet? Meanwhile, a cabal of powerful men hopes to take Dr. Moreau's discoveries and use them for nefarious means. As with the previous book, this is a romance first (albeit one where a human brain is discovered in a hat box). There are two dashing, virile men vying for Juliet's loyalty one of whom is literally a lustful animal and there is the requisite amount of tormented dithering, with lines like Montgomery had shipwrecked my heart. Luckily, Shepherd's integration of romance into her nods to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Jack the Ripper is masterful, and she does not back down from a hugely dark cliff-hanger ending. Bosoms, prepare to heave and throats, prepare to scream.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
