Join Kiersten White for a reading and signing of her new YA fantasy novel, The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein.
This stunning and dark reimagining of Mary Shelley’s classic is told from the point of view of Elizabeth, Victor Frankenstein’s adopted sister, and publication has been timed to coincide with the two-hundredth anniversary of Shelley’s original work. This is the Frankenstein legend as you’ve never seen it before.
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 onto the streets... until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything—except a friend. Elizabeth does what 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 around her is consumed by darkness.
