Waiting on Wednesday #84: A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd.
The Madman's Daughter #3.

Expected Publication: January 27, 2015.
by: Balzer + Bray.

Goodreads Synopsis:
After killing the men who tried to steal her father’s research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet’s secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor’s own walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor’s long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she’ll follow her father’s dark footsteps or her mother’s tragic ones, or whether she’ll make her own.

With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity.

Why I'm excited:
After finishing Her Dark Curiosity and liking it more than many others did, apparently, I am excited to see what happens next and curious about how Frankenstein will be incorporated in. I've enjoyed what Shepherd has done with weaving the classics through these books so far so I'm definitely looking forward to the conclusion!

What are you waiting on this week?
