by Theodora Goss, narrated by Kate Reading
The monsters’ daughters unite in this fun and fantastic mystery thriller. Based on some of literature’s best classic horror and sci-fi stories, The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter brings together a band of misfits, the daughters of some of the most infamous heroes and villains of all time: Mary Jekyll, Diana Hyde, Beatrice Rappaccini, Catherine Moreau, and Justine Frankenstein. They team up with the legendary Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve a gruesome series of murders.
Together these women uncover a secret scientific society of immoral and power-crazed scientists. It isn’t always easy to see the true monsters in the light of day.
These strong and diverse female characters offer a different point of view on stories we all know so well. Ms. Goss has blended a little romance with bits of mystery and intrigue, fantasy and thriller for a delightful story of friendship and hope.
This is my first story by Theodora Goss but I am sure, it will not be my last.
