'Such Wicked Intent' Book Preview

The synopsis and book cover of the upcoming sequel to 'This Dark Endeavour' by Kenneth Oppel has been released.

When does obsession become madness? Tragedy has forced sixteen-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, the four 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.

Having just finished reading 'This Dark Endeavour', I can't wait to read 'Such Wicked Intent', though I'm a bit cautious about their venture into the 'spirit world'- seems a bit farfetch'd. I thought it would just be a simple exploration of cryogenics... we will see!

But I'll have to wait almost a year as the next book is released August 2012!
