Mary Shelley's League of Supernatural Hunters: Origins of Adam
Mary Shelley learns of supernatural creatures and real meaning of the word monster as she encounters a man unlike any other. A creature not born of woman, but created from the body of a circus strongman killed while trying to save a lion tamer. She must decide who to trust, the vampire, the witch, the mad scientist or the creature. Either way, Mary's seen enough to know she will need an army to fight those things not easily killed.
19th century England, friendless and alone in the world, Adam Frankenstein, the creation of a mad scientist and his witch lover, becomes an assassin for hire. When a powerful mage hires him to find his kidnapped daughter and kill the man who took her, Adam strikes a bargain of his own. The mage has an immortal dog and Adam will do anything to own it.

Not my normal read
I don't normally read sci-fi, but I thought I'd give this one a go. I loved how the author pulled Frankenstein through time, playing imaginitive "what if" senarios. I'm sure if I knew more about Mary Shelley's Frakenstein story, I'd have been able to read more between the lines of this author's impressive work. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. This is my honest review.
