  1. Compassion he hissed Why would you have sympathy for a monster Because we re not so different minor spoilers for the first 1 3 of the book The main character makes some dangerous, questionable choices.She is desperate for answers She makes some extremely risky decisions.There is romance.There is a love triangle.I REGRET NOTHING NOTHING, YOU HEAR ME Call me a hypocrite I don t care I freaking loved this book The writing is fantastic The characters are wonderful The mystery kept me guessing.This w [...]

  2. I loved the drama in this book, there was so much going on The plot has so many twists and turns, it was hard for me to put the book down I also love the thought provoking ideas in this story revolving around science experimentation and morality I just found the story fascinating and I love the setting I also really enjoy Juliet s character and reading from her perspective With that said, her internal struggles can get aggravating and repetitive at times, but she definitely has reason to be conf [...]

  3. So many thoughts are still swirling inside my head after finishing this book Where to begin Well, let s start with the obvious I loved it It has all the best of the first book but with some darker plots in motion More danger, suspense and intrigue than The Madman s Daughter While the first book is a retelling of The Island of Dr Moreau, this book brings us a twist an the famous tale of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde And during the blending of the tales, Megan Sheppard doesn t miss a b [...]

  4. THIS BOOK IS UTTERLY MAD a stunning sequel to The madman s daughter D I ABSOLUTELY ENJOYED THIS BOOK maybe like 0.1 star then the first one which is extremely rare as I tend to enjoy the first books in series a lot D This book continues to question my moral beliefs highly recommend, can t wait to read the last one

  5. Last year, I absolutely loved The Madman s Daughter It was dark, atmospheric and suspenseful It also ended in a brutal cliffhanger that had me raging and at the same time dying to read this second book I had high hopes going into Her Dark Curiosity, but it ended up being so disappointing and I felt like it suffered from second book syndrome.Juliet was someone I admired in the first book, but in Her Dark Curiosity she plain out annoyed me with her poor decision making skills It was frustrating se [...]

  6. haunting gorgeous a PERFECT sequel to book 1, and I am literally DROOLING for book 3 this is one of the best series ever so creepy, so well written and imaginative, yet so believable the author s writing style makes me want to die, it s so beautiful I LOVED THIS BOOK Basically, book 3 starts out shortly after Book 2 leaves off Juliet and her group is on the run, after the events that went down at the very end of book 2 will not spoil it for those who haven t read book 2 yet But it s BIG stuff, p [...]

  7. I stumbled back against the empty table, stunned The thread slipped from my fingers, along with the spool of my sanity.The murderer was the same Somehow, even though I d thought him dead, Edward had done this This was a really good sequel, which this time turned into a real Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde kind of story I really liked Juliet in this story, and I felt sorry for her in the way her illness was taking over her life, and the fact that she had been abandoned by Montgomery I did think she made so [...]

  8. Juliet s back in London, and her new guardian is a kind and gentle man who is in turn a great father figure for her Then dead bodies that are murdered in the same fashion as the island murders are showing up around the city Juliet can t help but wonder if the beast escaped and has targeted her as its next victim.What can I say about this book Intense Dramatic Shocking Thrilling That s a good summary of what I believe this book to be about Not only did Megan write a well written second novel, she [...]

  9. And that s my review That too Full review to come closer to the release date EDIT LOL yeah no just kidding about that , but if you need something to hold you over, Mel and I did a thorough discussion review for Her Dark Curiosity on the blog, full of rants and snark Enjoy

  10. Oh my gosh The first one was based on The Island Of Dr Moreau and the second one is Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde And I am pretty sure who is going to be playing the title role AWESOME UPDATED THOUGHTS AFTER FINISHINGWell, well, well what a deliciously creepy, no down right horror filled, sequel Now I had some issues namely with a few of the characters Some annoy me, some anger me, some I just plain don t trust AT ALL But others were AWESOME And this story the tie in of The Isle of Dr Moreau with Jekyll [...]

  11. This review was originally posted on my blog jeanmenziesProbably the only book I was in any sort of true state of anticipation for this year was Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd, the sequel to The Madman s Daughter I read the first book in the series only days after its release, quite by chance based on a recommendation, so this book has been an entire year in the waiting The first in this series was based on The Island of Dr Moreau and this latest instalment in the series is based on the in [...]

  12. 2014 a whole year After that ending I have to wait so long for the next I think I may die from the anticipation omg T_T

  13. Her Dark Curiosity is book 2 of The Madman s Daughter series Because it is a while yet until the book releases, I won t give anything away I enjoyed this book and thought it was a solid second book to the series If you liked The Madman s Daughter, definitely check this one out when you can.This book picks up with Juliet back in London after Montgomery sent her away from the island and Shepherd did a great job of sharing the things Juliet went through on her journey without making us start the bo [...]

  14. As far as second books go, this one is right up there A tight plot, good suspense, awesome pacing and great writing.Juliet has grown on me She has her moments of pure frustration, but in the end, you ll come to love her She is ashamed of her unnatural curiosity towards all things bloody, but she does embrace it in time of need She is repulsed by how alive she feels when she feeds her curiosity, but she is unable to stop, which makes her a very sympathetic character.Its amazing that the romance i [...]

  15. Rating 4.5 Ish, that love triangle was it necessary My plan was a cruel one, dangerous, yet I couldn t deny that the curious corners of my soul curled at the thought Her Dark Curiosity wasn t as near as painful as I expected it to be the romance in the first book made me roll my eyes too often on the contrary, despite the love triangle that wasank the heavens, toned down in this book I found the sequel to The Madman s Daughter to be deliciously dark.The first line The air in my crumbling attic c [...]

  16. Finally done Shepherd s writing style is wasted on a book filled with irritating characters and a disgusting love triangle I liked the overall story, but I had a hard time trying to stop myself from throwing the book against the wall Juliet is one of the worse characters I ve read about this year thedailyprophecy 2I wish I could say I m not sure where it all went wrong, because I know This book suffers from the most horrible love triangle I ve seen last year and it contains irritating, annoying [...]

  17. I love Dr Jekyll and mr Hyde This made a beautiful book with the characters I love I was afraid the author was going to butcher the classic but I soon came to love the plot I loved the theme on darkness and light or good and evil I loved that Juliet killed the Kingsmen It was amazing Please read this series it s so good

  18. When Book 1 in a series is worth five stars, you may hesitate to pick up Book 2 What if the sequel can t live up to the quality of its predecessor I needn t have worried, because Her Dark Curiosity is another smashing read from Megan Shepherd The novel opens with science, which bodes well for the rest of the story, a battle not to cure but to perhaps manage a violent condition I m not sure why Juliet shags Edward, but otherwise it s a fabulous read that I definitely recommend NOTE TO ANIMAL LOVE [...]

  20. 2.5 stars Enjoyed the end but most of the book I was just waiting for things to pick up It wasn t uninteresting, but I think I was just too familiar with the original story to enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first one.I was really frustrated with the main character this time I m sure she was the same way in book 1 but for whatever reason I could overlook it because of the situation she d been thrown into This time around I wanted to strangle her She flip flopped than America Singer fro [...]

  21. 2.5 starsBlythe and I do a discussion review on the blog, here s the link to check it out findingblissinbooks.c A full and proper review will come closer to the release date The main issue was the romance ANGSTY, LOVE TRIANGLE, POINTLESS AND NOT LOGICAL Change of plan no longer reviewing this one

  22. YES THERE S A SEQUEL Maybe I won t die just yetAlso, after reading the Madman s Daughter, I had no idea it was inspired by the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde If anything, I would have thought Frankenstein with the whole creating aberrrations thing Having read both books, I can honestly say I think Frankenstein is relevant to this book.But that s just me WhateverYIPPEE for a sequel

  23. This book was just as good as The Madman s Daughter So addictive I never wanted to stop reading I love where this story is going Starting book 3 tomorrow 3

  24. Initial Thoughts This sequel to The Madman s Daughter was an enjoyable read Juliet is back from the island and is adjusting to life in London with her new Guardian A serial murderer is on the prowl and it doesn t take long for Juliet to realize that the crimes are all related to her Juliet is also struggling with her humanity and her illness, working hard to find a cure The Review Her Dark Curiosity was the much anticipated sequel to The Madman s Daughter In the first book, we met the teenage Ju [...]

  25. Yeah, I think this is my new favorite series I can t say anything bad about this Even if I could, it might be stuff I don t mind So, it took me a lot longer than I thought to get back into this series Mostly because I wasn t in the mood for it.Now, I loved the first book and couldn t wait to read the next book.What I love about the books, is what the story will be about That and the covers are beautifully done and eye catching.The last one, had tones of the Island of Dr Moreau and in this, Jekyl [...]

  26. After reading, my mind is jumbled in questions and the aftermath of what happened I don t want to ruin anything for you It s one of those books that can t and shouldn t know any spoilers before reading You also have to remember every detail given to you to fit in the pieces.Juliet takes on so much at her age She is an unyielding realistic character who is feisty but smart There is a love triangle, but it isn t annoying It has a real purpose to build to the plot and put danger and obstacles to th [...]
