Her Dark Curiosity (The Madman's Daughter #2) by Megan Shepherd ~ Review by Fallon

5 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

With inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a tantalizing mystery about the hidden natures of those we love and how far we’ll go to save them from themselves.

Fallon's Review:

Juliet has returned to society and finds it odd to be accepted once more among piers she was shunned by. Juliet's best friend Lucy is still the supportive rock she has always been. Lucy is excited to have her friend able to be with her in society. Juliet still feels awkward and tries to push her dark tendencies down hoping for them not to surface.

People start to turn up murdered all around London and the common factor is they all had wronged Juliet in some way. They also have three slashes a mark she is all to familiar with. How does anyone know her past and all the details of the moments of being wronged in the past.

Her Dark Curiosity was so much darker then Madman's Daughter and I loved that. I was taken into Juliet's dark mind of struggles against her own very nature. While this was inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde it stood out as amazing and unique all on it's own. Edward is a piece of the dark you will yearn for. He may have dark tendencies but his love, protection and strength are something Juliet needs. Montgomery pushed her away and now her heart needs a man that would not let go so easily.

You will not see the end coming and I can not wait to read A Cold Legacy. Megan Shepherd's writing just gets better with each book. This is unlike anything I have read and stands out as a must read! I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars.


  1. Great review! I loved the first book and the twist at the end; I still need to read this book. :)
