"...I could see the two creatures stirring. They had been dead flesh, but now their limbs began to jerk. In sudden, horrible spasms, their fingers flexed and their arms reached out. Their thin hands were first pressed flat against the inside of the glass, then were feeling along it like scuttering spiders..." London, 1879. Two mysterious children are smuggled into the city by a scientist who is sworn to their protection, yet terrified of them. The children have no idea that they are being hunted by a monstrous evil, or that they will trigger a horrifying journey through the fog-shrouded backstreets in search of justice, revenge, and the truth about who they are. Part Victorian gothic horror, part steampunk adventure for older children, The Frankenstein Inheritance is an atmospheric, thought-provoking twist on one of the world's most iconic nightmares.
