Victor Frankenstein leads a charmed life. He and his twin
brother, Konrad, and their beautiful cousin Elizabeth take lessons
at home and spend their spare time fencing and horseback riding.
Along with their friend Henry, they have explored all the hidden
passageways and secret rooms of the palatial Frankenstein chateau.
The Dark Library contains ancient tomes written in strange
languages, and filled with forbidden knowledge. Their father makes
them promise never to visit the library again, but when Konrad
becomes deathly ill, Victor knows he must find the book that
contains the recipe for the legendary Elixir of Life.
The elixir needs only three ingredients. But 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.
