"Waiting on" Wednesday: Dr. Frankenstein's Daughters

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

by Suzanne Weyn
Release Date: January 2013

Goodreads Description:

A new generation is creating a monster....

Doctor Victor Frankenstein's previously unacknowledged beautiful, intelligent twin daughters (from an early marriage when he was a student) have come to Frankenstein's Castle to claim it as their inheritance.

Shortly thereafter they learn that a serial killer is on the loose. They try to ignore this -- Gretchen takes up her father's work, while Ingrid throws lavish parties. Gretchen and Ingrid form a love triangle with a young naval officer with a debilitating disease. Though he loves Ingrid, he agrees to work with Gretchen on a series of body transplants that improve his condition. Before long he is even walking without his cane. He does not know that the science that is helping him is the science of death itself . . .

A twisted, macabre journey of romance and horror.

Why am I eagerly waiting on this?  I love gothic novels and reading an intriguing perspective on the whole Frankenstein concept is exciting!  I can't wait to see how this author weaves the original story into the background of this novel.  Should be awesome!
