This Dark Endeavor named a 2011 Quill & Quire Book of the Year

Reprinted from Quill & Quire Magazine

"The talented and prolific Kenneth Oppel already garners much attention from readers, award juries, and critics alike. So why feel the need to include him here?

A Gothic tale of love, lust, ambition, and the supernatural, Oppel's latest effort, which has roots in Mary Shelley's classic horror novel, combines eloquent language and an action-filled plot. His young Frankenstein brothers, Victor and Konrad, are sure to get as much attention as those Twlight kids, especially once the movie (optioned by the producer of Stephenie Meyer's hit franchise) hits the big screen..."

  1. Great news! Congratulations. There is so much for you to be excited about. The sequel, re-release of book 1, a movie.
    I'm a little late to the game, but my copy of This Dark Endeavor is on it's way. When I turned the last page of an excerpt I read, I knew it was a book for me. I can't wait!
    Congrats again!
