Wishlist Wednesday #5 - Such Wicked Intent



This is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper!


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.

I first would like to pronounce to the world that this is the most magical cover in existence and I want a giant copy of it hanging on my wall.  Actually, both of them, and the original cover of the first book, because HOLY GRACIOUS they're beautiful!!
But not only that - Oppel has created a GORGEOUS story here - you HAVE GOT to read these books!!  And I HAVE GOT to get my hands on this one! :D

  14. Oh oh oh!!! I know how much you loved This Dark Endeavor (I'm pretty sure I gushed about it all through your review LOL),  and I actually got it on my shelf a few weeks ago just because you recommended it to me! I had no idea there would be a sequel -- I guess that just means I need to get on reading the first one so I can squeal with you! ;)

    Amazing pick this week, Sierra! <3 Can't wait to start this series!
