Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything–except a friend.
Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable–and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.
But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.
This book was so good. I do love Frankenstein stories. I did love Mary Shelley Frankenstein movie. I so need to read the that book. I enjoy this twist in tail. It was pretty neat point of view of Elizabeth story.
I did liked Elizabeth in the book. She was very brave protecting Victor through out the years. She would do anything to keep her family together. She loves everyone and just wants to be by their side forever. When Victor goes missing, what dark secrets will she uncover?
This book was a quick read I did love the little twists in the book. This is good for new readers to Frankenstein world. A good new Halloween read of the year. It’s already out, so pick up a copy.
