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.

PRAISE FOR THIS DARK ENDEAVOUR "As a prequel to Mary Shelley's gothic classic Frankenstein, this is both meticulously researched and highly original. . . . Oppel's novel is a gripping tale of undying devotion, mixing hope with foreboding."

- The HORN BOOK

PRAISE FOR THIS DARK ENDEAVOUR "Oppel's tale is melodramatic, exciting, disquieting . . . a delicious mix."
