Written as a sequel to Mary Shelley's masterpiece of 200 years ago, Frankenstein's Daemon captures the spirit of the original in this page-turning tale. Many of the original characters populate the novel, including Capt. Robert Walton and Victor Frankenstein's brother, Ernest. Mad ambition, unfettered science and love betrayed lead to a shattering climax on the streets of London.
