    I liked this twist on the story of Frankenstein. It's one of those books you just have to experience for yourself. Victor was perfect as the tortured hero and strong-willed Lizzie was immediately likable and you couldn't help but want this couple to figure out how to get their HEA. ...

    There was nothing really wrong with this book, but after it started off strong with an interesting female protagonist in a room full of boys at medical school, it dragged. I liked some of the twists, but it wasn't enough to keep me engaged throughout the book. ...

    Listen I could literally sit around and read Frankenstein retellings all day every day. I'm not exactly sure why because the original novel is really very so-so for me, but I just love all the retellings so much! And somehow they still all manage to be different enough to be interestin...

    Cadaver & Queen had potential but I felt like the story was executed poorly. The book dove into a promising start as it was rather creepy and intriguing. Halfway through the book, the story was flooded with irrelevant dialogue between characters. There also wasn't very much charact...

    This was somewhere between a three and a four star for me. I loved the concept of the book. The idea that the soul is somehow attached to the body is amazing. I don't think I have seen that anywhere else. Lizzie is an amazing young woman. I love her and want to know more about her ...

    I?m a big fan of retellings and anything that offers up a bit of a twist with a female lead tackling the mystery and horror along with a male dominated society but overall this book as just okay. ?Cadaver and Queen? begins with first year medical student Lizzie who wants noth...

    I really enjoyed this historical sci-fi take on the classic story of Frankenstein more than I expected to like it. Bio-mechanicals (reanimated corpses who perform menial tasks and follow orders), a top of the line British medical school, a female American student, and Victor Frankenste...

    I received this book as an ARC. Lizzie Lavenza is a medical student, the first female in fact, at a school in England during the 1800?s. In spite of her male classmates and professors, she is determined to make a name for herself and become a doctor. In addition to serving as a m...

    Rating 4 Stars I have to say I kept low expectations for this one so since it turned out to be pretty good I'm impressed. This a really interesting, almost steampunkish twist on the classic Frankenstein and this one was not a dud. I have to start off on how I really liked Elizabe...

    This book was one of my most anticipated reads for the year. I mean look at that Cover! Intriguing right? And a Frankenstein retelling! Psh.. Heck Yes!! However, it fell a little short for me. The idea of the story was definitely there and intriguing, but as I got reading, I felt th...

    Wow, this is a YA retelling of Frankenstein and I must say though its got flaws, it's quite an enjoyable read and I'm really looking forward to reading the next book (with different main character). What I like about this book: The world: The world Kwitney created is a strange on...

    ended up not really liking this one... :/ A huge shame since this was one of my most anticipated reads this year. I loved the concept and started out being really interested in what was going on, yet the middle became a bit stale-- or more like a book without direction. Which mak...

    I must admit that when I first picked up this book I was wary as to whether or not I would like it. The cover was eye catching, but I was unsure of the story itself, I am presently surprised at how much I loved this book. A retelling of Frankenstein as a steampunk alternate history boo...

    I have no idea why this book has not gotten the hype that it should! I had not even heard of Cadaver & Queen until I was rummaging at the library and I stumbled across the book, with it's eye catching cover and intriguing synopsis. This was a Frankenstein retelling with steampunk e...

    There wasn't anything particularly bad with this book, but it just didn't enthrall me at all. I would sit there, looking at the page and being bored. I will say that I was quite confused at first. I kind of went into this book, forgetting that it was a Frankenstein retelling of sor...

    I think there are major problems with plot threads left hanging, but truly enjoyed the characters, the beautiful language and descriptions, the details of medical study as they were and how the profession regarded women at the time, and the immersive Victorian/steampunk setting. I am a...

    ?It is dangerous to be right on matters in which the established authorities are wrong.? So Cadaver & Queen is sort of Victor Frankenstein retelling. To be honest, I saw the cover and thought the plot was similar to SJTR so I gave it shot. While it didn?t become my favo...

    3.5 Stars Review: I reread Frankenstein recently and am on a quest to read all the retellings! And this one proved to be a thought-provoking, feminist Frankenstein-inspired story with a twist. While not a retelling, per se, this story took characters and ideas from the original ...

    Update: wait...there's a sequel now?! Ohhhh this was actually fun and not what I was expecting! It kinda reminded me of Stalking Jack the Ripper and some Frankenstein. Victorian era sexism really does piss me off. The romance was kinda cheesy but I actually didn't mind it. Lots of m...

    I really really really liked the beginning of this book. Elizabeth was a girl against the world. She was smart and she knew it and she wasn't about to let some egotistical male teachers keep her from becoming a doctor. I enjoyed her friendship with the other misfits, and even her s...
