As we know, Victor Frankenstein, 16, is destined for a most interesting future. Is this what starts him on that path? His twin brother, Konrad, is ill and no current medical treatment can cure him. Victor discovers a secret lab and a book of alchemy and sets out with his cousin Elizabeth and friend Henry to find the ingredients for the Elixir of Life. He realizes he is in love with Elizabeth who love Konrad, defies his father and finds a fascination with the dark arts. Dark and dramatic and as recommendable as Oppel can be.
