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. Where they are usually empty-minded and perfectly obedient, 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. Victor, it seems, still has a spark of human intelligence inside him, along with memories of things he discovered before his untimely death.and a suspicion that he was murdered to keep that information from getting out. Suddenly Elizabeth finds herself intertwined in dark secrets and sabotage that puts her life, and the lives of Victor and their friends, in danger. But Elizabeth's determined to succeed-even if that means fighting an enemy who threatens the entire British Empire.

"This feminist retelling of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN unfolds with Miss Lizzie Lavenza being the first female student to be admitted to a prestigious medical school. She's thankful for her father's legacy but also eager to prove her own worth. Narrator Saskia Maarleveld strikes a ladylike tone as she portrays Lizzie's struggles to be accepted in the competitive bioengineering program at Ingold. Maarleveld excels at finding slight ways to differentiate British accents, helping listeners distinguish secondary characters. The story picks up when Lizzie meets a student who had mysteriously disappeared and discovers a plot that could threaten the very monarchy itself. Science fiction fans will find themselves listening breathlessly as the plot comes to a climax. J.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
