Author: Megan Shepherd

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

After killing the men who tried to steal her father’s research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet’s secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor’s own walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor’s long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she’ll follow her father’s dark footsteps or her mother’s tragic ones, or whether she’ll make her own.

With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity.
 



I had a rocky relationship with this series; the first book blew me away, the second one was a train wreck for me, this one was a lot better than the previous one but it still didn't grip me ad much as the first one did.

My favorite thing about this series is how it questions morality and the consequences of the decisions we take. It focuses mainly on the when science begins to cross the line between right or wrong a topic that I found incredibly interesting, so I would recommend reading this.
