Over at Kirkus: THE STRANGE CASE OF THE ALCHEMIST’S DAUGHTER by Theodora Goss

We are over at Kirkus today for our regular column! It’s Thea’s turn this time, with a review of The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss.

A feminist mashup of literary classics from the 1800s, The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter follows Mary Jekyll as she discovers her long lost sister, Diana Hyde, and then teams up with Sherlock Holmes and Watson to find other sister-monsters: Beatrice Rappaccini, Catherine Moreau, and Justine Frankenstein. This is a tale about monstrous daughters and evil fathers, with a dash of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen mixed in with Jessica Jones season 2. Do I need to say more? Go over to Kirkus to get the full review!

    Incorporating historical characters always gets me! I’m sold, adding it to he TBR list! Thank you for the review! I just finished a great historical fiction piece by Rebecca Rosenberg, The Secret Life of Mrs. London. The cover drew me in and the story did not disappoint. It’s about the fascinating but untold life of Charmian London, the wife of famed writer Jack London. I found it here, http://www.rebecca_rosenberg.com definitely check this one out!
