The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter

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.


I write suspense with a hot romance and a southern accent. I like strong characters with attitude and charm. Heroines who can rescue themselves and heroes who aren't afraid to love them.
