Image of Her Dark Curiosity

Juliet’s world is bleak in Shepherd’s follow-up to The Madman’s Daughter, but her story is filled with passion, love and beautiful prose. As Juliet deals with murder and genetically created monsters, she questions her own sanity, all while exploring the universal questions of what composes our true nature and to what extent we can be held responsible for our actions.

After escaping to London, Juliet doesn’t think she left behind any trace of her father’s genetic experiments. Then, Edward shows up looking for a cure for the monster within him. Juliet is attracted to both his humanity and the beast inside, and she agrees to work with him. As they struggle to find a cure, Juliet must come to terms with Edward’s dual nature as well as her own. (BALZER + BRAY, Feb., 432 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780062128058, HC, 13 & Up)
