Staff Pick of the Month: May
The Madman’s Daughter
By Megan Shepherd
Sixteen-year-old Juliet is an orphan, cleaning the labs of the local medical college and just barely staying off of the streets. When she comes across some familiar papers, she runs across the streets of London to see if she can find a clue that will lead her to her missing father. As she searches for the truth about the allegations of strange experiments and scandalous rumors, she finds romance, adventure, and more than a few terrible nightmares come to life.
Why I liked it: It is a paranormal romance where the romance is subtle, the suspense is palpable and the story is well-told.
Three words or phrases that describe this book: gothic, thriller, romance
You might want to pick up this book if: You are looking for a smarter, classier paranormal romance with a historical element.
