Waiting on Wednesday: Dr. Frankenstein's Daughters by Suzanne Weyn

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is DR. FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTERS by Suzanne Weyn.  DR. FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTERS releases on January 1, 2013 from Scholastic.

A new generation is creating a monster....

Doctor Victor Frankenstein's previously unacknowledged beautiful, intelligent twin daughters (from an early marriage when he was a student) have come to Frankenstein's Castle to claim it as their inheritance.

Shortly thereafter they learn that a serial killer is on the loose. They try to ignore this -- Gretchen takes up her father's work, while Ingrid throws lavish parties. Gretchen and Ingrid form a love triangle with a young naval officer with a debilitating disease. Though he loves Ingrid, he agrees to work with Gretchen on a series of body transplants that improve his condition. Before long he is even walking without his cane. He does not know that the science that is helping him is the science of death itself . . .

A twisted, macabre journey of romance and horror.

I am a huge fan of the classic, Frankenstein, so when I saw Suzanne's blurb, I was so excited!  I love that this is a new generation to the Frankenstein legend, not just a remake, so anything can happen.  I find it interesting that the girls are so different, and I cannot wait to discover the secrets that the castle and the twins hold.  Plus, there's the romance...and I love romance!
