This book was deliciously atmospheric. I could feel the gloomy London fog and the oppressive tropical heat. The hints about the full extent of her father's experiments keep the tension high and his secretive nature casts a shadow of doubt over everything. Juliet finds herself caught in a love triangle with high stakes as who she trusts may decide whether she lives or dies. Juliet is a wonderful heroine bold enough to do what needs to be done even when the men around her quail at the task. The Madman's Daughter is a thrilling gothic romance based on a classic Victorian science fiction story.
