The Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein

The Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

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.


 

My Review

 

I have mixed feelings about this book. The first part of it was pretty slow. Elizabeth was unlikable and extremely selfish through the majority of this book. I liked White’s take on Victor Frankenstein even through the eyes of Elizabeth. I also REALLY liked the character Mary. This book wasn’t as twisted or dark as I thought it would be. I actually anticipated more from it. Maybe I’ve grown a tough hide during my reading adventures because I didn’t find it creepy or gross.

(insert delightful sigh) “Nothing like reading about chopped up and rotting body parts with my morning coffee! ” <—- Yes, I had used this phrase one morning. Unphased too so I’m probably just crazy.

I liked the plot twist at the end…. mid to end…. Lets go with mid to end. The ending was AWESOME! It actually would have been perfect without the epilogue in m opinion. I think this would have been a 5 star read for me if the book just STOPPED and then there was those blank, black pages with nothing behind them.

I liked this book….. I just didn’t LOVE this book like I anticipated. I’m going to give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars. I do hope Slayer is better…. HUGE Buffy fan over here.
