“Waiting on” Wednesday: Such Wicked Intent

Posted March 7, 2012 by Pixie in Blog, Uncategorized / 18 Comments

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking  the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. 


This week we are waiting on… 

Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel

Devotion turns deadly in this second Gothic thriller from Kenneth Oppel.

When does obsession become madness? Tragedy has forced sixteen-year-old Victor Frankenstein to swear off alchemy forever. He burns the Dark Library. He vows he will never dabble in the dark sciences again—just as he vows he will no longer covet Elizabeth, his brother’s betrothed.

If only these things were not so tempting.

When he and Elizabeth discover a portal into the spirit world, they cannot resist. Together with Victor’s twin, Konrad, and their friend Henry, the four venture into a place of infinite possibilities where power and passion reign. But as they search for the knowledge to raise the dead, they unknowingly unlock a darkness from which they may never return.

WHY WE WANT IT:
I have always loved the story of Frankenstein – the first book in the series was wonderfully written, the back story was so well researched that I could not put the book down. I can’t wait to see what happens with Victor in book 2.

  1. I still need to read the first in this series. Love the cover art revamp, and of course the premise. Great pick!
