Sixteen-year-old Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself in
London-working as a maid and trying to forget the scandal that
ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her
father''s gruesome experiments. But when she learns he''s alive and
continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she''s determined
to find out if the accusations are true.
Accompanied by her father''s handsome young assistant,
Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward, Juliet travels to
the island, only to discover the secret of her father''s new life:
He experiments on animals so that they resemble, speak, and behave
as humans. Torn between horror and scientific curiosity, Juliet
knows she must end her father''s dangerous experiments and escape
her jungle prison before it''s too late. Yet as the island falls
into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father''s genius-and
madness-in her own blood.
