RGG: Not sure it's enough of a page-turner for most readers, but is in the gothic horror style. Reading Interest: 12- YA.

I wanted to give this 2 stars but I think I have it an unfair hands considering this was the first book I read after Vicious. It wasn't terrible, but it felt a little formulaic and cyclical in terms of plot, but. It was okay. Not wow worthy. ( )

Book description
In this prequel to Mary Shelley's gothic classic, Frankenstein, 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein begins a dark journey that will change his life forever. Victor's twin, Konrad, has fallen ill, and no doctor is able to cure him. Unwilling to give up on his brother, Victor enlists his beautiful cousin Elizabeth and best friend Henry on a treacherous search for the ingredients to create the forbidden Elixir of Life. Impossible odds, dangerous alchemy and a bitter love triangle threaten their quest at every turn.
Victor knows he must not fail. But his success depends on how far he is willing to push the boundaries of nature, science, and love - and how much he is willing to sacrifice.
