This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel

Goodreads Summary: The purest intentions can stir up the darkest obsessions.

In this prequel to Mary Shelley’s gothic classic, Frankenstein, 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein begins a dark journey that will change his life forever. Victor’s twin, Konrad, has fallen ill, and no doctor is able to cure him. Unwilling to give up on his brother, Victor enlists his beautiful cousin Elizabeth and best friend Henry on a treacherous search for the ingredients to create the forbidden Elixir of Life. Impossible odds, dangerous alchemy and a bitter love triangle threaten their quest at every turn.

Victor knows he must not fail. But his success depends on how far he is willing to push the boundaries of nature, science, and love—and how much he is willing to sacrifice.

So this book caught my eye at the library this week because it's supposed to be 'a prequel to Mary Shelley's gothic classic Frankenstein'. I loved Frankenstein, I thought it was an absolutely brilliant book and I'm really intrigued as to what this 'prequel' will bring.
