Summary

Summary

With inspiration from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein—and perfect for fans of Libba Bray—this breathless conclusion to the Madman's Daughter trilogy explores the things we'll sacrifice to save those we love…even our own humanity.

After killing the men who tried to steal her father's research, Juliet and her friends have escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune tellers who seem to know Juliet's secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor's walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor's long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she'll follow her father's dark footsteps or her mother's tragic ones, or whether she'll make her own.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The final volume of the Madman’s Daughter series accomplishes something too often lacking in trilogies—a third volume that is as compelling and well-written as the first installment…The skillfully drawn and well-developed characters face their emotional upheavals and outside dangers with aplomb. Shepherd’s adroit weaving of the Frankensteinstory line into the already complex world of Dr. Moreau’s daughter brings an exciting new twist and a satisfactory ending to the trilogy. Fast-paced and romantic, this page-turning volume results in mixed emotions—contentment with the ending, but still a desire for more.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Fast paced with an intriguing story line, this novel quickly draws readers in and keeps them hooked until the last page. This is the third part of a series, which began with The Madman’s Daughter, and with many allusions to events in the previous installments, those familiar with Juliet and her world will have a richer experience. Still, this can also stand alone, and newcomers will find much to enjoy here.” Booklist
“Riveting…A creepy and compelling tale.” Kirkus Reviews
