This Dark Endeavour
Simon and Schuster
Well Kenneth Oppel had me hooked after the first page! I really enjoyed the first half of this book and loved the detailed descriptions of the castle and the characters. He tied in the Frankenstein story very well. I felt that it was a compelling story but I was saddened at the end of it. I thought the vocabulary was quite advanced and that it fit the historic setting of the novel but it might be challenging for some of my readers. It is definitely a YA book for its mature language.
