So basically, this book took everything that made an emotional impact in the first novel, and undid it. Every sacrifice, every decision, every awesome, analytical, science-loving, non-squeamish trait of Juliet's. I would have been happy with the end of The Madman's Daughter, honestly, I didn't need any closure.

But Megan Shepherd decided Juliet needed...duh duh DUH! A love triangle.

Spoiler alert and all: the EXACT SAME LOVE TRIANGLE that happened in the first book. Haven't we been through this already? Yes, yes we have. But hey, let's keep Juliet from thinking at all about her condition, or science, by having her obsess over two boys.
Hey authors who write love triangles: why don't your lovelorn characters ever choose C) neither? Nobody needs a relationship, guys, it's just another element of life that's equally rewarding and taxing.

Basically, this awesome fictional female role-model was utterly destroyed. Didn't Juliet have conviction, before? Didn't she have purpose? Didn't that not relate to boys at all? Yeah.

Megan Shepherd is struck from my list of favorite authors for this book. Don't read it. Especially if you liked The Madman's Daughter. It'll just ruin the positive experience.

This book was a great read, but I read it first instead of " The Madman's Daughter." I cheated in a way.

"In this sequel to The Madman's Daughter, 17-year-old Juliet Moreau has escaped from her mad scientist father and made a life for herself in London. But she hasn't given up on her own scientific experiments, nor has she reconciled her conflicted feelings for the dashing Montgomery and the part-human, part-beast Edward. And when a series of bloody killings strikes London, Juliet realises that escaping from her father's nightmarish legacy will be much more difficult than she had suspected. For another eerie Gothic thriller with a scandalous love triangle, try Kenneth Oppel's This Dark Endeavor."
