About This Book
As the 18th century draws to a close in Ingolstadt, Germany, Dr. Victor Frankenstein realizes he has no choice. His wife died giving birth to their beautiful twin daughters, Ingrid and Giselle, and now he must abandon them. The creature that hunts him, the one he brought to life so many years ago, has sworn to kill anyone Frankenstein loves. And the doctor will not put his newborn daughters at risk. So he leaves them with their maternal grandfather and disappears.
Seventeen years later, the girls learn their father has died and they have inherited his fortune, including a castle off the Scottish coast. Eager for independence, the sisters move to the castle. But trouble follows. Ingrid becomes obsessed with her father's laboratory and journals. Giselle is haunted by nightmares. Will this be a new beginning for the girls, or a return to a terrifying past?
This novel builds off the Frankenstein classic, adding twists, turns, and romance that will captivate modern readers.
