Reviews

"The imagination of Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a thing of wonder, restless and romantic, fearless in the face of genre, embracing the polarities of storytelling- the sleek and the bizarre, wild passions and deep hatreds-with cool equanimity."-The New York Times

"If there are two things I love in this world, it's contemporary reimaginings of Victorian era horror and sci-fi, and joyful genre mashups in literature. Thank the Lord, then, for Silvia Moreno-Garcia, the author of the 1970s Mexico City noir Velvet Was the Night and the postcolonial gothic romance Mexican Gothic, who brings her chameleonic powers to bear on H. G. Wells's 1896 'exercise in youthful blasphemy.'"-Lit Hub

"The brilliant and unstoppable Silvia Moreno-Garcia continues to weave her magic in The Daughter of Doctor Moreau, a smart, sinister fable about social inequality and exploitation, isolation and abuse of power. Both lacerating and deeply empathetic, this story satisfies the reader on every page."-Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife and When the Stars Go Dark

"Silvia Moreno-Garcia goes from strength to strength. The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is my favorite of her novels so far-a gothic tour de force with characters who will keep you glued to the page, and a series of satisfying, surprising riffs on Wells's original story."-Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

"Beautiful, feral, and as sharp as a jaguar's claws . . . I felt the anger and hope in this story down to my very bones. Truly, Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a virtuoso of the anti-imperialist gothic novel."-Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous and Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age

"With intelligence, energy, and unexpected tenderness, Silvia Moreno-Garcia takes on Wells's classic tale of scientific hubris. At once playful and deadly serious, The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is an irresistible and thoroughly satisfying novel."-Valerie Martin, author of Property and I Give It to You

"Lush, eerie, and compulsively readable, this story got under my skin and stayed there."-Alexis Henderson author of The Year of the Witching and House of Hunger

"Moreno-Garcia's previous work has spanned genres-horror in Mexican Gothic (2020), noir in Velvet Was the Night (2021)-and in this volume, she deftly combines fantasy, adventure, and even romance. A fun literary remix."-Kirkus Reviews

"This wholly new novel paints a vivid picture that is as alluring as it is unsettling, filled with action, romance, and monsters. Readers will fall into this tale immediately, enchanted."-Booklist (starred review)

"Moreno-Garcia's worldbuilding chops are on display as she creates a distinct, vibrant backdrop to her audacious retelling. . . . Fans of cerebral, atmospheric historical horror won't want to miss this."-Publishers Weekly
