Waiting on Wednesday (59) HER DARK CURIOSITY by Megan Shepherd

Waiting on Wednesday copyWaiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited to read. I love discovering new covers just in time for WoW, and luckily this week I stumbled upon the cover reveal for the sequel to The Madman’s Daughter! It’s gorgeous! I loved The Madman’s Daughter, and was distraught that it ended on a cliffhanger. Her Dark Curiosity doesn’t come out until next January, but in the meantime you can feast your eyes on this:

Her Dark CuriosityHer Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd. Release date: January 21 2014 (Balzer + Bray).  Big thanks to Young Adult Books Central for hosting the cover reveal. They are also running a fantastic giveaway for an ARC of Her Dark Curiosity as well as Ellen Oh’s forthcoming Warrior, so make sure to click on the link above to enter. Here’s the Goodreads description:

To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father’s island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

With inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a tantalizing mystery about the hidden natures of those we love and how far we’ll go to save them from themselves.
