Sixteen-year-old Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself in London – working as a maid and trying to forget the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumours about her father’s gruesome experiments. But when she learns he’s alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she’s determined to find out if the accusations are true. Accompanied by her father’s handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward, Juliet travels to the island, only to discover the secret of her father’s new life: He experiments on animals so that they resemble, speak, and behave as humans. Torn between horror and scientific curiosity, Juliet knows she must end her father’s dangerous experiments and escape her jungle prison before it’s too late. Yet as the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father’s genius – and madness – in her own blood.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau escaped her father’s island. Now back in London, she is rebuilding her life and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy – though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her. As people close to Juliet fall victim to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also made it off the island. She’s determined to find the killer, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again. And as Juliet strives to uncover the truth while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in a world of scandal and danger.

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 she 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.

When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn’t know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments – tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures – all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn’t alone. Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora’s past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer – a handsome young guard called Cassian – appears, they realise that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: Their captors aren’t from Earth. And they have taken the five teenagers for an otherworldly zoo – where the exhibits are humans. As a forbidden attraction develops between Cora and Cassian, she realises that her best chance of escape might be in the arms of her own jailer – though that would mean leaving the others behind. Can Cora manage to save herself and her companions? And if so…what world lies beyond the walls of their cage?
