Tragedy has forced 16-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, 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.

...the hard way. Victor believes intelligence equals or surpasses wisdom. The story is a well written and very immaginative depictiin of what led the growing intellect, but lacking a moral compass, to tragedy.
Riveting story, well-delivered by Luke Daniels (as always). The book felt compressed as if the author was writing under a page limit. As a result the characters were not thoroughly developed and the story skipped quickly from one event to the next.
