Waiting On Wednesday: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming books we're excited about. Formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine until her site went quiet. The meme is still followed today by dedicated bloggers who have a need to share their anticipation of upcoming reads.
So here we are with another WOW upon us. This week I'm anticipating a book by an author I really enjoy. Kiersten White is not one to be put in a box. Writing books from paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi genres and more. Each story has its own magic and I also enjoy hitting her up on Twitter. When she announced the cover reveal just recently of an upcoming novel, I was there. This title is a retelling of a tale many of us know. But through Kiersten's eyes and twisted imagination. I can't wait!
Release Date: September 25, 2018
Summary: 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.
So what do you think? Did the cover and premise send chills up your spine? Let me know and yes, Netflix Nation will be back this Friday. Thanks for stopping by.
