    I try to approach each book I get to review with an open mind but also with appropriate expectations. In this case I had to judge this book as a young adult novel, from the Harlequin Teen line of romance, and by the criteria of the gothic horror novel. As a young adult novel I felt ...

    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...

    Alternate time line kind of book where bio-mechanicals are a thing in Victorian England. Bio-Mechanicals are reanimated dead bodies used as low level servants and being developed as soldiers so people don't have to be killed in war. A lot goes on in the beginning. We are introduced ...

    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 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...

    MEH. There was nothing remotely scary, terrifying, or gasping about this story. I found it rather uneventful and dull. :( Disappointment is the only word I can really think to properly describe my thoughts on this one. ...

    Horribly addicting, Cadaver & Queen will take you back to the 1800?s where medical experiments and advances are changing the world. Fast paced and alluring, Alisa Kwitney?s adaptation of Mary Shelley?s Frankenstein is truly authentic, spinning a new take on Victor Frankenstei...

    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...

    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 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...

    I love Frankenstein and love re-imaginings of classic stories, so I was down for this when I saw it. It has a really cool concept and definitely plays in some of the haunting and creepy feelings one should expect from this kind of stories. As well as the questions of morality in scient...

    Oh, I'm not sure what to do with this. I'm just... It's a story. Frankenstein-style, taking place in a world where it's morally okay to turn dead bodies into mindless half-living creatures to serve others, though because they're mindless it's really unclear how that works well in gener...

    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...

    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 ...

    We have a bit of a love/hate relationship. I think it was an interesting premise, although not very well justified or explained. The characters all started off pretty intriguing and interesting, although there wasn't a lot of growth or development. The plot became all kinds of interest...

    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...
