THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
This novel’s dark prose is complemented by its mystique. A modern retelling of The Island of Dr. Moreau, Shepherd’s tale is philosophical without losing sight of plot or character development. Filled with secrets and intrigue, this thought-provoking novel is over all too soon and will haunt you for days.
Juliet travels to an isolated island to uncover the mystery of her absent father. She discovers the true nature of her father’s work and the reason he was ostracized — he uses vivisection to create human-like creatures out of animals. Along with her old childhood friend Montgomery and a castaway named Edward, Juliet works to uncover the secrets surrounding the island, ultimately finding the biggest surprises within herself.
