The purest intentions can stir up the darkest obsessions.
Sixteen-year-old Victor Frankenstein and his twin brother Konrad are inseparable - until the day Konrad is struck down with a mysterious illness that no doctor is able to cure. Passionate, temperamental Victor cannot imagine a life without his twin, and swears to save him, no matter what it takes.
But impossible odds, dangerous alchemy and a bitter love triangle are working against him, and Victor's dark endeavour will alter the course of their lives for ever.
