Finally a Trilogy with a Complete & Satisfying Conclusion!!

A Cold Legacy (Madman's Daughter) - Megan Shepherd

Megan Shepherd is one author who knows how to close a trilogy out properly! Yeah I'm sad that it's over but I'm also glad that the series didn't end with more questions then answers like a lot of series have ended lately. She tied up the loose ends and concluded it with finality!

 

Shepherd also knows how to write skilled retellings! The concluding story was inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and picked up where the last book, Her Dark Curiosity, a retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, left off. She effortlessly intertwined all three retellings together which is one of the reasons why I liked this series so much. It was very unique & creatively written.

 

This series isn't for the faint of heart though. If you can stomach the gore and like science or I should say, mad science, then you should definitely give it a try!
