Waiting on Wednesday (#10)

"Waiting On" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein

Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: August 23rd 2011                 by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

Victor and Konrad are the twin brothers Frankenstein. They are nearly inseparable. Growing up, their lives are filled with imaginary adventures...until the day their adventures turn all too real.

They stumble upon The Dark Library, and secret books of alchemy and ancient remedies are discovered. Father forbids that they ever enter the room again, but this only piques Victor's curiosity more. When Konrad falls gravely ill, Victor is not satisfied with the various doctors his parents have called in to help. He is drawn back to The Dark Library where he uncovers an ancient formula for the Elixir of Life. With their friend Elizabeth, Henry and Victor immediately set out to find assistance from a man who was once known for his alchemical works to help create the formula.

Determination and the unthinkable outcome of losing his brother spur Victor on in the quest for the three ingredients that will save Konrad's life. After scaling the highest trees in the Strumwald, diving into the deepest lake caves, and sacrificing one’s own body part, the three fearless friends risk their lives to save another.
This book is definitely my kind of book. I mean, come on.. the apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein?! I can see myself devouring it in one sitting! I CAN'T WAIT!!! (+ it comes out the day after my birthday :D)

Leave me a linky, I'll drop by!

Nice birthday gift! I love it when books I am dying to read come out on my birthday (I have one on my next birthday as well, City Immortal by Scott Speer). This does sound amazing and I am adding it to my TBR list. Great pick.

Great choice today, Evie, I have this one on my wishlist.

My WoW today is a YA novel called Crave.
