Title: Her Dark Curiosity
Series: The Madman's Daughter #2
Author: Megan Shepherd
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
This retelling was a bit off to me. Yes you do have the double personality trait in one of the characters but geez isn't the "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" thing about one of them not being known? I can't really recall since I have read it so long ago but that's the impression I've got. And in this book you know from the start who has both personalities and that kind of ruined the retelling part of the story.
Once again Juliet got on my nerves. She meets a character from the past and her first reaction isn't asking about her loved one and if he's ok or dead or anything... I honestly do not get Juliet. Also at some point in the book she sleeps with someone just for the sake of it and then she just blocks him off and she also throws the fact that she had sex with that person at someone else's face...
The main plot of this book was known from the beginning and that was ok but it was a bit slow paced.
As it happened with the first book, "The Madman's Daughter", I couldn't stop reading it. I was completely invested in the characters and knowing their fates even though I had so many issues with the main character, Juliet. This just comes to prove that you don't need to love a character to enjoy the overall book.
I did particularly enjoyed how the next book's retelling was introduced. It was a bit forced but I liked it and I am excited to read the final instalment in this trilogy and knowing how it all ends.
