Wells book, The Island of Dr. I enjoyed this retelling just as much, if not more, then the first.
Shepherd does a great job of creating her own unique twists on the old stories and then she very creatively ties them all together. I think anyone who enjoys retellings would like this series because they are nicely done. Moreau, blew me away, giving Megan Shepherd's Her Dark Curiosity, a lot to live up to, but live up to it she did.
I loved Juliet even more than before. She is still an independently strong character who is flawed, conflicted, and who makes horribly rash decisions. As far as her love interest goes, mums the word. It is not meant for the reader to know about the details of that until the moment's right. We see more of Lucy, which was a good thing. Lucy is that little dose of flight that adds some fun. New on the scene is Elizabeth, the much needed mature clear thinker and I am hoping to see more of her in A Cold Legacy.
The mystery portion was good, and it was impossible to know who to trust. Each and every man, child, and beast was suspect until the truth was uncovered near the end leaving the remainder of the book to deal with what was to be done about it.
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. It is at the masquerade that the mystery deepens further; Juliet meets Montgomery who explains that he has received notes from both Edward and the Beast stating that Edward wants to find a cure, the Beast is hoping to experience all the "pleasures and pains" of life. I shook my head fiercely. Inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Labels: 's , book review , gothic literature , Her Dark Curosity , human experimentation , Megan Shepherd. Veronica Rossi.
Hyde, with great embellishment. I loved every irrational bit of it. One of the best things about both of the books that I have read in this series is that the ending delivers a complete and wonderful conclusion and then goes a couple of steps further to set the stage for the next in the series. Very clever, Megan Shepherd. I got a copy of this book through NetGalley to review, so thank you to Balzer and Bray and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
I enjoyed this book just as much as the last book in this series. There will be a third book in this series which is Untitled but is due to release in Juliet Moreau had been back in London for a few months, she is living with the old Professor who was an old friend of her father. However, secretly Juliet is working on a cure for herself All this sneaking around gets tougher for Juliet when a killer known as the Wolf of Whitechapel starts murdering people on the streets. While the last book was a retelling of the Island of Dr.
Moreau this book is more of a retelling of Dr. If you remember Edward from the last book then you will have a good idea of who the Dr. Hyde character is in this book. This book is dark and atmospheric just like the first book in the series. Juliet is an interesting heroine that I enjoy reading about. Unlike the first book, the majority of this book takes place in London. She tries to be a good girl and a grateful girl, but she also has a dark and wild side that she struggles with.
At times she is sweet and thoughtful and loving; at other times she is reckless and ruthless. We see more of her darkness in this book and it is intriguing to watch as she struggles to balance the two. Edward is in the story as well. He is by far the most intriguing character in this book. However, he has obviously loved Juliet for months. He clearly respects Juliet for her knowledge and tenacity as much as for her beauty. There relationship is of course incredibly complicated.
The other side of the love triangle is Montgomery.
He really belittles Juliet and assumes that she wants the life of a pampered housewife. He seems to only respect the good and sweet side of Juliet and not embrace her wildness. There is a clandestine group of men trying to use Dr. The plot was well put together, I enjoyed how all of the storylines came together in the end.
There is a lot left unresolved in this book, which will apparently addressed in the third book. At the end of this book they set up what the next retelling will be Overall I enjoyed reading this book and loved the dark Victorian tone to it. I enjoyed the characters and their struggles with darkness and lightness. I would recommend this series to fans of historical young adult paranormal books with a dark and gothic theme to it.
You know how much I like the first book and was dying to era this one. Well, I read it. Plot: This plot picks up where the last book left off and the reader is back in London where Juliet is trying to go on with her life. There are a slew of murders going on and people who Juliet thought she left behind come back.
One thing about this plot is that the reader gets to know other minor characters really well. Of course the re-introduction to other characters from the first book makes it much better.
Love: This is the part the bothered me the most. Ending: The ending leaves the door open for the last book, following many questions that I like to see answered. Also, secrets lots of them that are bound to come out. Overall, this is a great sequel. There is plenty of drama and great plot twists that keep the reader in their seat. Just beware of the love interest, that area might sting a bit. A sleek read that is sure to capture the reader, Her Dark Curiosity is a savage twist of love and science.
In this sequel to "The Madman's Daughter," Juliet finds herself back in London and in the care of Professor von Stein, an old family friend.
