Waiting on Wednesday: Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel

Published by: Simon & Schuster
To Be Released on: August 21st, 2012

Devotion turns deadly in this second Gothic thriller from Kenneth Oppel.

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 -quoted from Goodreads

I loved This Dark Endeavor (you can read my review here), and I can not wait to read the sequel, Such Wicked Intent! This is one of those series that puts a fascinating spin on the beginnings of a beloved classic beautifully.

Cover wise, I loved the original cover for This Dark Endeavor, but I really like the new covers S&S has given this series. Check out the newly redesigned cover for This Dark Endeavor. 

I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel and the newly re-designed This Dark Endeavor.
