From the Publisher
Tragedy has forced sixteen-year-old Victor Frankenstein to swear
off alchemy forever. He burns the Dark Library and 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, 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.
