The idea of this story both fascinated and horrified me, but I did not like Juliet. She was so irritating, saying the same things about herself over and over; I pretty much understood her after the rabbit incident. The love triangle was weak and distracting, but Montgomery was dreamy in a sick sort of way. I heard it's going to be a movie; if that's true, I think it will be much better than the book. Seriously doubt I'll read the rest of the series. ( )

I'm just being extra tough on my rating for this book when I give it 3 ⭐️'s. It was so well written and full of mystery and suspense. There were a few things " revealed" later in the book that were obvious, but a few unexpected twists too. I felt it had a very Frankenstein feel to it although the authors inspiration for the book was The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells, which I now want to read also. Excited to see what the next two books hold for this story!! ( )

Whooo, this book was super-dark and horrifying, with plot and character twists that kept me guessing right up to the agonizing last scene. It has motivated me to look into the author's inspiration "The Island of Doctor Moreau" by HG Wells. But wait, apparently there is a sequel! Hmmmm, which to read first, which to read...??? ( )

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd is a first in series, inspired by the classic, The Island of Dr. Moreau by H. G. Wells. Thankfully, I was not familiar with H. G. Wells story so everything was a new experience with nothing to compare it to, and found myself constantly trying to figure out who was truly mad. There are a lot of uniquely odd characters that made the story very much of a thrill ride and the creep factor was amazing.
I have never read anything like The Madman’s Daughter. Seriously. That alone made it worth the read. On top of that, the twists were unbelievable. You will have a hard time guessing the outcome, and the ending came as a shocker! I can hardly wait for the next installment.
Be prepared to go into this one with an open mind. Considering the story line, there are areas where it is so out of touch with reality that it is hard to buy, but honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. ( )
