Review: Juliet is back home in London now and has tried to forget all about the island. She's traded the jungle for industrial city life, which in some ways is even more dangerous. It's been months since she returned to London and she's starting her life over again but is she really safe?
While not as shocking and surprising ad The Madman's Daughter, Her Dark Curiosity continues the Gothic thriller series and brings twists to the plot.
After Juliet returned to London she had to resume her normal life again, she moves into the professor's house which makes her part of high class society. She slowly Juliet must learns to adjust back to social life in the city. After her father was shunned from society for his experiments Juliet was also shunned and was no longer high class, she worked as a servant. She learns to adjust back to being high class. Just as Juliet starts to make herself at home again, a murderer shows up and kills people just as a beast with claws would. SHe begins to wonder if the island is completely behind her as she thinks about it every day.
Juliet tries to find the beast and stop it because if it is one of her fathers creations from the island, if Scotland Yard gets a hold of it they will dissect it. She wants the atrocities her father created to never be created again.
Through all of this she is also looking for a cure for herself. The serum she usually takes is not being as effective as it used to be. She must find a new cure for herself. If the serum stops working completely she will die.
It's a book about survival and learning to make the right decision in a world where everything is gray and blurred. Juliet must decide whether she wants to follow her natural instincts or what she's been taught in London.
Her Dark Curiosity focused more on the love triangle aspect of the story and how Juliet had to choose her decisions based on how she felt about Edward and Montgomery.
