Our Hideous Progeny is a captivating tale set in 1853 London. Mary Sutherland, the great-niece of Victor Frankenstein, hungers to make her mark in the scientific world alongside her geologist husband, Henry. However, their lack of wealth and connections hinders their progress. When Mary discovers hidden family papers hinting at the truth behind her great-uncle's past, she sees a chance to change their fortunes. Their quest for answers takes them to the wilds of Scotland, where they encounter Henry's enigmatic sister, Maisie, and delve into a past filled with ambition, obsession, and forbidden love.

"A compelling and utterly absorbing artfully crafted tale that echoes the dark essence of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein while maintaining a fascinating originality all its own." - Susan Stokes-Chapman, author of PANDORA
