Such Wicked Intent is the second book in the Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein series. It follows Elizabeth, Henry and 16-year-old Victor one month after the death of his identical twin brother, Konrad.
Even though they are struggling to overcome their grief, they stumbles upon a mysterious journal that allows them to travel to the spirit world to find Konrad. In doing so, they open a portal that reveals their true character, both good and evil, and unlocks a beast that has the potential to destroy them all.
The characters are fearless and unaware of their own mortality. They believe they can travel back and forth into the spirit world and eventually bring Konrad back to life. The consequences are not what they expected and the evil that lies in the dungeons of the castle and the caverns of the spirit world threatens to destroy them all.
Written as a young adult novel, readers of gothic fiction will enjoy the quest for knowledge and power that transports Victor, Elizabeth and Henry into a dark and dangerous world.
Kenneth Oppel knows how to keep a reader on the edge of their seat and hoping for more. Such Wicked Intent is an excellent read for those who like a truly spooky story that leaves you wanting more.
