Such Wicked Intent

Kenneth Oppel, read by Luke Daniels. Brilliance Audio, unabridged, seven CDs, 8.25 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4558-0296-8
In this sequel to This Dark Endeavor, Oppel continues the story of young Victor Frankenstein, as he—along with friends Henry and Elizabeth—travels into a netherworld to find and rescue his twin brother, Konrad. But dark spirits look to circumvent this family reunion and cause further pain—and Victor must determine if he craves power more than love. Narrator Luke Daniels skillfully portrays Victor, capturing both his arrogance and naïve moments of grandeur. In his rendition of Elizabeth, Daniels employs a higher pitch and evokes her strong convictions. Additionally, the narrator lends appropriate and unique voices to the book’s other characters and provides solid and entertaining narration throughout, modulating tone, emphasis, and timing to ratchet up moments of drama. Ages 12–up. A Simon & Schuster hardcover. (Aug.)
