Overview

Carlota Moreau: una joven que crece en una hacienda remota y lujosa, a salvo del conflicto y las luchas de la península de Yucatán. La única hija de un investigador que es un genio o un loco. Montgomery Laughton: Un capataz melancólico con un pasado trágico y propensión al alcohol. Un paria que ayuda al Dr. Moreau en sus experimentos, que son financiados por los Lizalde, dueños de magníficas haciendas y abundantes arcas. Los híbridos: Los frutos del trabajo del médico, destinados a obedecer ciegamente a su creador y permanecer en las sombras. Un variopinto grupo de monstruosidades en parte humanas y en parte animales. Todos ellos viven en un mundo perfectamente equilibrado y estático, que se ve sacudido por la abrupta llegada de Eduardo Lizalde, el encantador y despreocupado hijo del mecenas del Dr. Moreau, quien sin saberlo iniciará una peligrosa reacción en cadena. Porque Moreau guarda secretos, Carlota tiene preguntas y, en el calor sofocante de la jungla, las pasiones pueden encenderse. La hija del doctor Moreau es tanto una deslumbrante novela histórica como un atrevido viaje de ciencia ficción.

Carlota Moreau: A young woman growing up on a distant and luxuriant estate, safe from the conflict and strife of the Yucatán peninsula. The only daughter of a researcher who is either a genius or a madman… Montgomery Laughton: A melancholic overseer with a tragic past and a propensity for alcohol. An outcast who assists Dr. Moreau with his experiments, which are financed by the Lizaldes, owners of magnificent haciendas and plentiful coffers… The hybrids: The fruits of the doctor’s labor, destined to blindly obey their creator and remain in the shadows. A motley group of part human, part animal monstrosities. All of them live in a perfectly balanced and static world, which is jolted by the abrupt arrival of Eduardo Lizalde, the charming and careless son of Dr. Moreau’s patron, who will unwittingly begin a dangerous chain reaction. For Moreau keeps secrets, Carlota has questions, and, in the sweltering heat of the jungle, passions may ignite. The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is both a dazzling historical novel and a daring science fiction journey.
