Beschreibung

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 Victor and Elizabeth discover a portal into the spirit world, they cannot resist. Together with their friend Henry, they 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.

"A standout sequel and engrossing ghost story"

Kenneth Oppel

"Oppel writes beautifully, conjuring up an atmospheric and gripping gothic adventure where our foreknowledge of Victor's ultimate quest only adds to the tension." -- Sally Morris Daily Mail 20121214 "As with the first novel in this series, the sense is all of oncoming disaster moving in slow motion towards both characters and reader. Everyone but Victor knows that this will end badly but he pulls in both characters and reader by sheer force of personality. It's difficult to like Victor Frankenstein but it's equally difficult to stop reading about him. He has no boundaries. His ambition is overweening. He is impulsive and rash. But he is highly intelligent and he burns through life with a charisma that makes him irresistible." The Bookbag "It's a dark, dark story and one worthy of any Gothic classic. I love the direction in which Oppel is taking his tragically-flawed central character. It's true to Shelley and it's also genuinely chilling. The prose finds exactly the same balance as This Dark Endeavour - elegant and precise and not anachronistic, but still beautifully accessible to modern readers. If you loved This Dark Endeavour, you'll love Such Wicked Intent. If you haven't yet read This Dark Endeavour but love a good Gothic chill, then read them both as soon as you can. I'm loving this series. Roll on book three!" The Bookbag "I adore gothic novels and this fits perfectly within this genre. Gripping, thrilling and at times quite nerve-wracking, this was a fantastic read." -- SJH A Dream of Books 20120821 "I read this book in one evening because the story was so gripping. There are many elements to it which lead the reader one step closer to the events of Frankenstein... Brilliant storytelling by Kenneth Oppel makes this a fitting tribute to a much loved classic." -- SJH A Dream of Books 20120821
