A Cold Legacy (A Madman's Trilogy Book 3)
This series took three great literary fictions and stretched them to form the deepest, darkest, craziest, bone chilling retellings that made the most interesting, fantastical creepiest books I have ever read!
This last installment is based on the classic, Frankenstein, and just like the previous two in this trilogy it was compelling and gripping with horrific and stunning weirdness that made you think this madness could maybe, possibly happen!
With scenes that would possibly make you collapse with the magnitude of its morbidity, the author pushed the limits of scientific experimentation to a point where you want to turn your head or drop the book and not continue but you just can't resist the urge to know what is going to happen!
Juliet surprised me lot with the decisions she made. She still stood on shaky ground when it came to her heritage and becoming like her father, and she questioned her mental stability and morality constantly! But I guess Juliet wouldn't be Juliet if she didn't create some sort of conflict within herself. I wasn't thrilled on the decisions she made, as it affected two of my favourite characters who I wished could have had an alternate ending, but beggars can't be choosers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
All in all, this was a very good end. It wasn't amazing, but the characters, new and old were grotesquely fascinating to read about. The 'manor' in which they were brought to was eerie and made for a chilling and creepy setting. I loved the detailed descriptions of every room and hidden passageways, it made the house stand out and I considered it a secondary spooky character.
Victor Frankenstein's presence and the history of his experimentations were implemented and blended into the story beautifully. It was as if his spirit danced the waltz through the chapters and I never lost the connection with the classic tale.
Although everything was tied off, I didn't get that big red bow, (I guess Juliet stole it for her dress on the cover :)) instead I got more of a bow the colour of grey :/ Cause that's just how I felt at the end, sort of like the colour grey would feel.
Almost every chapter of these books ended in a cliffhanger and I just wanted that rush at the end of the series. But I think with all the chaos that happened, the author just wanted calm without the storm to follow.
