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.
