Michael Meeske's "Frankenstein's Daemon" seamlessly picks up where Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" left off. From the first few pages, I was immediatly drawn into this story. The "Daemon" has nothing to do with Hollywood's version of Frankensein, the monster; rather the creature is true to Victor Frankenstein's creation as told by Mary Shelley. In Michael Meeske's story the monster grows into his own being and experiences the full range of human emotions.

As I was reading this book, I felt as thou

usually I am not to impressed when another writer takes on someone else's work. Michael Meeske has done a fantastic job and one that Mary Shelley would approve of I'm sure.
The story is told by the ship's captain Robert Walton as he keeps a journal and letters to his sister.
He takes up the quest of his friend Victor Frankenstein to destroy the creature he has made.
In this quest of revenge and hate Robert has many trials and comes to learn a great many things.
One of the most important is that it i

This book continues where Mary Shelley's Frankenstein left off, with the main character, ship captain Robert Walton, intent on avenging Victor Frankenstein's and his crew's deaths, while trying to protect his family from the creature at the same time. The story takes some very unexpected twists and turns that reveal the many shades of gray when it comes to good and evil, vulnerability and humanity when you least expect it, and a resolution I think Shelley would have approved of. The writing is m ...more

I won this book on Goodreads and was so happy I did because is it amazing! I enjoyed how the story was told through Captain Walton's letters and journal entries to his sister and how the characters were so well-developed that I cared about their individual plights. Mr. Meeske's Frankenstein's Daemon is incredibly well-written and a must read!
