    For those waiting for the next installment in Kenneth Oppel's The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein series, this short shocker is just the ticket. Weyn posits that the good doctor had a secret first marriage that resulted in twin daughters, Giselle and Ingrid, who now, at the age of 16, have inherited good old Castle Frankenstein. While Giselle renovates the castle for the sisters' big coming out parties, Ingrid finds a secret door (natch) and hidden laboratory (natch) and is taken with the same "fever for knowledge" that so consumed her pop. Ingrid's plan is to use Dr. F's journals to guide her in saving a handsome neighbor from a degenerating disease. Good plan—until people start dying. Weyn gives primacy to swooning while rushing through important scenes (Ingrid's grave robbing, two attacks upon Giselle), and Ingrid's skill with surgery is never quite believable. But the pace is bracing, the mystery solid, and the epistolary format lends a proper mood of nineteenth-century decorum. Cameos by Mary and Percy Shelley top off this tasty little appetizer for Franken-fans. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
