"Mary Shelley would be proud!!!"

Eva is a young woman who dreams of the future in her small European town. She is different from most of the villagers in that she can read and sees the purpose in progress. Viktor Frankenstein and his assistant Igor move to the village, intent on bringing the railroad industry to the town. Viktor and Igor see in Eva a brilliant mind being wasted in the small town and they invite her to their castle to read and study. They are surprised at her progress and Viktor eventually decides to reveal the real reason they have come to the town, and Eva must decide if she loves Viktor enough to help him with his work, or betray him and save her village.

This is a very good take off of the Frankenstein story. I have read a few Frankenstein inspired stories and I never really enjoyed them. But this story was very exciting and grabs you from the beginning. Eva is a likeable character who seems not to fit in to the town, what she lacks in beauty she makes up for in intelligence; but intelligence is not something that can help her where she lives. She yearns for more and finds a possibility of escaping her town in Viktor. Viktor is more complex than Eva, you find yourself enjoying and loving him one minute but then on the next page hating him for existing. But I believe they are perfect for each other and truly believe they loved one another. The story is a little predictable since most everyone knows the Frankenstein story, but that does not take away from the plot. This is a new author to me, and I would love to read more.

In a small village in early 19th Century young Eva is enthralled by the new young baron, Viktor Frankenstein. Viktor promises to transform the traditional little town into a beacon of science and gives the book loving Eva access to his fantastic library. Eva becomes his student and assists him in a secret experiment, though she is kept in the dark about its ultimate aim. Soon after that Viktor introduces Eva to his “cousin” Adam. Adam is horribly disfigured with stitches running across his face. Viktor claims he is mute and simpleminded, but Eva takes pity on him and sets out to teach him to speak.
