Megan Shepherd - The Madman's Daughter


We’ve all heard of the story, if not read, H.G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau.  As narrator Edward Prendick   accounted the happenings of the Island, we got a creepy glimpse into vivisection. Author Meghan Shepherd has now taken the tale one step further, and her novel The Madman’s Daughter tells the story from the newly created daughter of Dr. Moreau, Juliet.  The novel is the first in a trilogy of mind-bending science fiction books for Shepherd, and our cast of characters is not only faced with moral dilemmas, but matters of the heart toward the twisted creations.
