With inspiration from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein—and perfect for fans of Libba Bray—this breathless conclusion to the Madman's Daughter trilogy explores the things we'll sacrifice to save those we love…even our own humanity.

After killing the men who tried to steal her father's research, Juliet and her friends have escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune tellers who seem to know Juliet's secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor's walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor's long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she'll follow her father's dark footsteps or her mother's tragic ones, or whether she'll make her own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Scotland We Go! Fantastic Conclusion! Great end to an incredible series. I loved that it was set in Scotland, I loved the secrets that came about in this book. I enjoyed Edward again, he was still my favourite character throughout the whole series, he was just so engaging and even when he wasn't himself I still found myself rooting for him. I loved the friendship that was built between Juliet and the people of the household, and as well keeping Baltazaar prevalent in the series. I also loved Sharkey the dog, so adorable!
