Carlota Moreau: A young woman, growing up in a distant and luxuriant estate, safe from the conflict and strife of the Yucatán peninsula, the only daughter of a genius – or a madman.

Montgomery Laughton: A melancholic overseer with a tragic past and a propensity for alcohol, an outcast who assists Dr Moreau with his scientific experiments, which are financed by the Lizaldes, owners of magnificent haciendas with plentiful coffers.

The hybrids: The fruits of the Doctor’s labour, destined to blindly obey their creator while they remain in the shadows, are a motley group of part-human, part-animal monstrosities.

All of them are living in a perfectly balanced and static world which is jolted by the abrupt arrival of Eduardo Lizalde, the charming and careless son of Doctor Moreau’s patron – who will, unwittingly, begin a dangerous chain-reaction.

For Moreau keeps secrets, Carlota has questions, and in the sweltering heat of the jungle passions may ignite.

Review

genre-jumping wizard, one of the most exciting and necessary authors writing today

― S.A. COSBY, bestselling author of BLACKTOP WASTELAND on VELVET WAS THE NIGHT

Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s writing is unforgettable

― CHRISTINA HENRY, author of ALICE, on CERTAIN DARK THINGS

With intelligence, energy, and unexpected tenderness, Silvia Moreno-Garcia takes on Wells’ classic tale of scientific hubris. Carlota, the mad Doctor Moreau’s only child, is a creation more original than anything her father’s cruel experiments could ever conjure. At once playful and deadly seriousThe Daughter of Doctor Moreau is an irresistible and thoroughly satisfying novel

― VALERIE MARTIN, author of Property and I Give It To You

The brilliant and unstoppable Silvia Moreno-Garcia continues to weave her magic in The Daughter of Doctor Moreau, a smart, sinister fable about social inequality and exploitation, isolation and abuse of power. In her usual fashion, Moreno-Garcia has given us an extraordinary heroine to root for in Carlota, a young woman who can’t know until she’s tested how much power is hers to claim. Both lacerating and deeply empathetic, this story satisfies the reader on every page

― PAULA McLAIN, New York Times-bestselling author of The Paris Wife and When the Stars Go Dark

As alluring as it is unsettling, filled with action, romance, and monsters . . . Readers will fall into this tale immediately, enchanted ― BOOKLIST (starred review)
