The Madman’s Daughter series has a great concept, adding a new twist on Victorian classics. I had high hopes for this series, but the second novel, Her Dark Curiosity, was a major disappointment.
I admit I skipped a few pages because it was agony waiting for anything interesting to happen. I think I would have been better off simply reading a Wikipedia entry about the book or reviews with spoilers, instead of wasting time reading this book. And thank goodness I borrowed the book from the library. I probably would have regretted buying it.
