Publisher's Summary

How does it feel to morph into a manta ray or slide into the body of a snake? This is what happens to Miranda, Semi, and Arnie, who survive a plane crash. They end up on a tropical island, but become candidates in Dr Franklin's sinister experiments.


What the Critics Say

"Veteran science fiction author Ann Halam has taken the framework of H.G. Wells's classic evolution parable The Island of Dr. Moreau and crafted an exquisitely wrought 21st-century update that plays on all our modern fears of test-tube clones and misguided medical ethics. Haunting, bold, and heartily recommended." (Amazon.com review)
"The characterizations are even richer and more credible than the premise is outlandish, and Halam heightens the tension by thoroughly imagining each stage of the girls' reactions to Dr. Franklin's elaborate cruelties. Only the cathartic ending will free readers from this scary novel's inexorable pull." (Publishers Weekly)
