Waiting on Wednesday #32 Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel

Such Wicked IntentWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 
Title:  Such Wicked Intent (The Dark Endeavour Chronicles #2)
Author: Kenneth Oppel
Release Date: 21 August 2012
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: 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
Why I want it: I really enjoyed This Dark Endeavour (review to come) and the fact that it is a sequel to a prequel of Frankenstein should be explanation enough.

What are YOU waiting on this week?


  1. I've seen this book series around before and remember thinking it was such a cool idea, but I haven't yet gotten around to picking up the first one.

    This is such a nice cover, though. /marks as TBR

  2. Sequel to a Frankenstein prequel? Awesome!


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
