Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Sheperd
Her Dark Curiosity is the second book in Megan Sheperd's The Madman's Daughter series. In the first book the author takes a crack at The Island of Doctor Moreau, creating a spin off that displayed his daughter as the main character in his world of atrocities. After defeating her father and escaping his island of horrors Juliet is still reeling from Montgomery's betrayal. Back in London, Juliet is suffering even more from her father's experiments on her, the dark acts she has committed making her feel like she is more of her father's daughter than she would like to be, and there are also mysterious deaths occuring that have a certain flair to them that make Juliet wonder if some of the horrors she left behind have in fact followed her. Among all of this there is also a conspiracy afoot that Juliet will have to uncover. Just because she left the island, doesn't mean that Juliet has escaped anything yet! With undertones of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde, readers will find that this dark madness is extremely curious.
