The Madman's Daughter
Book #71 Read in 2014
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
This is the first in a series told from the point of view of Juliet, teenage daughter of Dr. Moreau. At the beginning of this book, Juliet has been left on her own after her mother dies and her father is presumed dead. She finds out that he is indeed alive and has Montgomery, her childhood friend and her father's lab assistant, bring her to the island where her father now resides and experiments. Her father is more than slightly unhinged, having created a line of creatures taken from a combination of animals and which he tries to make human.
Juliet was a good heroine; she was intelligent and brave. This book got too much of a romantic triangle at times but the action of the plot saved it from being over the top. I have #2 in the TBR pile. I read this book on my Kindle.
