What Are Your Intentions?

Afternoon Loverlies! I have recently just finished reading Such Wicked Intent written by Kenneth Oppel. I decided to post the synopsis that is on the back of the book for y'all to read. I like how it explains the story better then my ramblings would tell you. lol

Synopsis: Tragedy has forced sixteen year old Victor Frankenstein to wear 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, they 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.

I didn't realize that this is the second book of The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein series. I have never read the first book which is called This Dark Endeavor, oops. But the whole time I was reading it I never thought it to be a second book, it was written well enough that you didn't have to read the first book to understand what is going on. But I will find time to read the first one, I don't like leaving things unfinished.

The cover  is what first drew me to the book. Then after reading the synopsis I thought, alright let's give this a try. I am not fond of the main character in this book, Victor Frankenstein. He is very power hungry and self centered at times, and just cannot leave well enough alone. This book was very creepy, talking about spirits and the spirit world. Also the darkness they unlock, very creepy. I am kind of sensitive to creepy and scary things that I get a bit paranoid. lol With that said, I think it is well written and easy to follow along. It was a very interesting story that I believe it is worth reading once. :) Ta Ta For Now!
