Maybe it's my distracted state of mind but I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as Frankenstein Prodigal Son . I didn't find it very interesting and found my mind drifting away throughout most of it. I think the thing I liked best about the first book in the series was learning more about the monster but in this book he's more of a secondary character in a cast full of secondary characters. Actually, when I think about it, the action seemed to be more of the main focus of the book than any of the characters and thus was the source of many of my issues with the book. I'm not a big all action/all the time type of reader and like a little more character development than I got here.
