Includes Mary Shelley's Frankenstein—two gothic novels in one!

In this chilling sequel to Mary Shelley's famous horror classic, Hilary Bailey imagines what might have happened if Dr. Frankenstein had created a female companion for his monster.

Years after he inadvertently set in motion the events that caused a series of deranged murders, Dr. Frankenstein, now living a happy and privileged life, sets to work on restoring the voice of beautiful young opera singer Maria Clementi.

But things are not always as they seem, and soon the rumors about Victor Frankenstein begin to worry his new assistant, Jonathan Goodall. When Jonathan spies a mysterious figure lurking near Maria's theatre, and later discovers his own wife and child murdered in cold blood, he knows he'll do anything to uncover the truth of Frankenstein and his newest experiments—a truth he knows will change everything...

For more than two hundred years, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus has kept readers enthralled. Shelley brought to life not only Frankenstein's monster, but also a masterpiece that authors have reimagined again and again. Frankenstein's Bride is perfect for seekers of the supernatural, classic horror fans, and readers of gothic fiction.
