Waiting on Wednesday - Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel

Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel
August 21st, 2012 from Simon & Schuster

When does obsession become madness? Tragedy has forced sixteen-year-old Victor Frankenstein to swear off alchemy forever. He burns the Dark Library. He 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, the four 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.

I actually stumbled across this one when I was writing up my Lone Star Reading List. Oppel was listed for This Dark Endeavor and lo and behold, this little beauty came up. Did you read the synopsis above? That's right, Frankenstein! Love it! Here is what MTV has to say about the new book:

"As was the case with "This Dark Endeavor," we once again find the cover subject with his back (frustratingly) turned to us, but unlike the first installment, young Frankenstein has some lovely company by his side."
