For fans of Libba Bray, this first book in a gothic suspense trilogy is inspired by H. G. Wells's The Island of Dr. Moreau and has been hailed by New York Times bestseller Carrie Ryan as having "beautiful writing, breakneck pacing, a pulse-pounding mystery, and an irresistible romance."Following accusations that her scientist father gruesomely experimented on animals, sixteen-year-old Juliet watched as her family and her genteel life in London crumbled around her—and only recently has she managed to piece her world back together. But when Juliet learns her father is still alive and working on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the old accusations are true. Accompanied by her father's handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward, Juliet travels to the island, only to discover the depths of her father's insanity. 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.

2.0 The Madman's Daughter Book Review
I don't really know what to say about this book other than the fact that its one of the most bizarre young adult books I've read this year. A strange island, odd beasts and mixed up characters that might interest some people but not quite my taste. Gretchen thought her father was dead for many yea...

I really, really enjoyed this book. I have never read The Island of Dr. Moreau, but I did go into this book knowing the basic gist of the story. That said, I did love how this book followed the general trajectory of the source material, but added a few of its own spins to the story. I loved so m...
