Waiting on Wednesday: The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd


a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

I had a different title in mind originally, but I saw that a trailer for The Madman’s Daughter was released so I had to use it for this week!

Title: The Madman’s Daughter
Author: Megan Shepherd
Genres: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Horror, Mystery
Publication Date: January 29, 2013

From Goodreads:
London, 1894. Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself—working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her father’s gruesome experiments. But when she learns her father is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations were true.

Juliet is accompanied by the doctor’s handsome young assistant and an enigmatic castaway, who both attract Juliet for very different reasons. They travel to the island only to discover the depths of her father’s madness: he has created animals that have been vivisected to resemble, speak, and behave as humans. Worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island’s inhabitants. Juliet knows she must end her father’s dangerous experiments and escape the island, even though her horror is mixed with her own scientific curiosity. As the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father’s genius—and madness—in her own blood.

You can head over to Entertainment Weekly for the exclusive trailer!

  1. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure
    why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

  2. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or
    guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss and would love to
    have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.
