When Elizabeth Lavenza enrolled at Ingold as its first female medical student, she knew she wouldn't have an easy time. From class demands to being an outsider among her male cohorts, she'll have to go above and beyond to prove herself. So when she stumbles across what appears to be a faulty Bio-Mechanical--one of the mechanized cadavers created to service the school--she jumps at the chance to fix it and get ahead in the program. Only this Bio-Mechanical isn't like the others. This one seems to have thoughts, feelings...and self-awareness. Soon Elizabeth realizes that it is Victor Frankenstein, a former student who died under mysterious circumstances. Suddenly Elizabeth finds herself entwined in his dark secrets...ones for which he might have been murdered to keep buried.

A dark, thrilling and ingenious riff on the Frankenstein legend. -M.R. Carey, author of The Girl with All the Gifts This is not a parody of Mary Shelley's classic but a clever new take on its elements in a mystery complete with Victorian writing flourishes and the mild titillation expected from a romance novel. Here the evil scientists are surgeons with an ambitious plot to change the course of politics... Fans of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles will enjoy this. -Kirkus Reviews In this inventive Victorian-era steampunk tale...Kwitney blends elements of murder mystery, classic science fiction, and gothic romance, all cleverly framed around a Beauty and the Beast take on Frankenstein. -Booklist A page-turner from start to finish, fans of Marissa Meyer, Gail Carriger, and Cassandra Clare will find much to love. Highly recommended. -School Library Journal Alisa Kwitney has an understanding of human foibles and follies and a light, intelligent touch that marks her as an author to watch and enjoy. -#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman Fiendishly clever and gorgeously romantic. Alisa Kwitney spins an electrifying tale of beautiful monsters and mad scientists that will keep your nerves tingling and your heart racing long into the night. -Carol Goodman, New York Times bestselling author of The MetropolitanAlisa Kwitney's bold reimagining of Frankenstein with Lizzie at its center is gripping, fierce and timely. Strikingly written and impeccably conjured, the monsters here are all too human. -Gwenda Bond, author of the Lois Lane series Cadaver & Queen has everything a discriminating reader would want in a historical, fantastical, science-fictional, romantic thriller. The tension is high, the pacing is fast, the plot twists and turns in unexpected ways, the Victorian social and political scene is deftly sketched and the characters are vivid and satisfyingly complex. It swept me right away. -Delia Sherman, author of The Great Detective
