Confessions of the Creature
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In the Arctic waters of the Barents Sea, the creature has taken the ultimate revenge on his creator, Frankenstein. He travels south, where a chance meeting with a witch gives him the opportunity to overcome what he is, and perhaps become who he was meant to be.
Transformed into a normal-looking man, but retaining his superhuman strength, the creature journeys to Moscow, where he becomes the protege of a wealthy natural philosopher and the lover of his daughter, Sabrina. Taking the name Viktor Suvorin, the creature wins acclaim as a military hero while Napoleon rages across Europe. Following the wars, Viktor and Sabrina travel to Switzerland, where they meet Byron, Percy Shelley, and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, who bases her novel on Viktor memoirs.
Viktor faces a final challenge to his hard-won humanity when tragedy strikes his family and he returns to the Arctic. There, on a frozen sea under the shimmering Northern Lights, the creature must confront the meaning of his creation and his life.
A compelling, thought-provoking novel with an undercurrent that made me always a little anxious about what will happen next to the characters
