There is enough story here for multiple books. I easily believe that I will return to this book annually for a great seasonal (Halloween or just snowed in) read.
It is fantasy fiction, historical romance and horror all mixed together.
Told from the point of view of Frankenstein's second successful creation, this one a female.
From the beginning things go horribly wrong. She is rejected by her intended mate for being too beautiful. Immediately she is thrust into a cold and unforgiving world to fend for herself. Almost inconceivably she finds the one place to accept her and care for her. That was the most difficult concept in the book to imagine. From there, I was pulled into her world and accepted all as plausible.
This is an emotional read with more mature scenes than I remember in classic versions.
I found myself breathless many, many times while I read.
The writing is fantastic. When you reach the ending be sure no one is going to interrupt you. You will not be able to put the book down.
This is a weird one, I have to admit. It is a bit of fun as the writer gives a genuine shot at executing this premise. I don’t really know what genre this is but it must be something like supernatural fan fiction. The author does well at distinctive storytelling within the rather large footprint of the Frankenstein phenomenon. It is at least partially a new narrative of the Frankenstein tale from the perspective of Fraulein Frankenstein. If you are into this mythology, which I must confess I’ve always liked the tale, this is a playful and fun read. Four Stars.
The female protagonist, Anna, is both relatable and creepy. Her confusion about her creation and her search for self make her very likable, yet that search leads her down dark paths that eventually make it difficult to root for her happiness. She is truly a complex character and a fitting addition to the Frankenstein tale, especially given the fact that when she chooses to create life, she does so without getting pregnant - a feminist twist!
This book also doesn't make the mistake of trying to tie up every loose thread from the source novel - some things are allowed to remain mysteries.
A truly enjoyable read! I found myself awake at 2am reading simply to discover the next fascinating plot twist or development of Anna's disturbingly human, yet monstrous character.
I received a free copy of this book through the Kindle Scout program.
Anna was a beautifully created character full of flaws and the capability to let her desires and anger get the best of her regardless of how much she may fight her instincts. I found the stages of growth she goes through made her a compelling character who I cared about more as the story progressed. Humanity can be filled with ugliness and you stumble and let your hate and anger get the best of you and times. But as Anna shows us you must fight it and make amends for your mistakes in order to become someone better than you once were.
