OK I am super excited to reveal the cover for A COLD LEGACY by Megan Shepherd releasing January 27, 2015 from Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins. The Madman's Daughter series is one of my most favorite series of all time. It is just so phenomenal and this cover is probably my most favorite yet!! It is just GORGEOUS....
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.
With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity.

She is also the author of The Madman’s Daughter and Her Dark Curiosity. Visit her online at www.meganshepherd.com.
