Her Dark Curiosity (The Madman's Daughter #2)
by Megan Shepherd
Expected publication: January 21st 2014
by Balzer+Bray      


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. Summary and image: Goodreads

Okay, I can't even really begin to tell you how much I want this book. I loved Megan Shepherd's debut book The Madman's Daughter. I LOVED the Gothic tone used in the story and I can't wait to see what happens to Juliet in this book. The fact that it's a nod to The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde just makes it that much more intriguing to me. What "I-Can't-Wait-To-Read" books are you waiting for this week?
