Book Review - Dr. Frankenstein's Daughters
A new generation is creating a monster....
When Doctor Victor Frankenstein died, he left behind a legacy of horror...as well as two unacknowledged, beautiful twin daughters. Now these girls are seventeen, and they've come to Frankenstein's castle to claim it as their inheritance.
Giselle and Ingrid are twins, but they couldn't be more different. Giselle is a glamorous social climber who plans on turning Frankenstein's castle into a center of high society. Ingrid, meanwhile, is quiet and studious, drawn to the mysterious notebooks her father left behind...and the experiments he went mad trying to perfect.
As Giselle prepares for lavish parties and Ingrid finds herself falling for the sullen, wounded naval officer next door, a sinister force begins to take hold in the castle. Nobody's safe as Frankenstein's legacy leads to a twisted, macabre journey of romance and horror.
My Take on the Book
I was impressed with this book, not only because it is the type of book that will keep you engaged from beginning to end, but more than that the author has done a great job at developing a mysterious storyline with characters that you want to get to know. I also enjoyed the way in which the author tells his story, through the use of diary entries from each of the girls. Through these writings you get to see the distinct differences between the two girls as well as their overall motivations for achieving the goals for which they set in front of themselves. The story and characters were strong and the author has done a masterful job at keeping her readers on the edge of their seats as they wonder how the whole story will conclude. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and your young teen will also!
