BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased or have been gifted, which have been neglected for a long time.
TITLE: Such Wicked Intent (The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein, #2)
AUTHOR: Kenneth Oppel
HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since September 2012.
WHY I’M READING IT: SO happy to have won this one from HarperCollins Canada. I read the first book in this series and LOVED it … it was just so creepy and perfect! Why this one has sat on my shelf for so long, I have no idea! Plus, Kenneth Oppel is Canadian and SUCH a good writer. I can’t wait to dig in!
When his grieving father orders the destruction of the Dark Library, Victor retrieves a book in which he finds the promise of not just communicating with the dead, but entering their realm, and soon he, Elizabeth, and Henry are in the spirit world of Château Frankenstein, creating and growing a body.
