Resumen:

This volume merges historical fiction with literary license to create an alternative reality in which Victor Frankenstein, the fictional scientist created by Mary Shelley, who, after studying chemical processes and the decay of living beings, gains an insight into the creation of life and gives life to his own creature. Frankenstein was one of Percy Shelley's (who became Mary Shelley's husband) schoolmates and close friends. In this retelling of the legend, Percy is the one who first gives Frankenstein the idea of creating a monster. Soon, both Frankenstein and the Monster are deeply entwined in the lives of the Shelleys and Lord Byron, becoming the cause of many of the strange occurrences that take place in their lives, including the inspiration for Mary Shelley's book. This book is a fascinating blending of Shelley's original novel, pulling occasional direct quotes from it, and a speculation about the real-life people who were involved in its creation.
