Frankenstein Resurrected is the first part to an ambitious epic trilogy creatively adapting and combining the characters and scenarios of the celebrated horror classics, Frankenstein and Dracula, preserving the original stories of both perfectly intact without corrupting or distorting either. This initial entry sets the stage for a literally soul-searching retelling of the Frankenstein tale-a provocative saga of ultimate human arrogance and inevitable vengeance as monster challenges his maker-by fleshing out those narrative elements which Mary Shelley only sketched while directly confronting what she carefully skirted: the deeply profound mystery and secret of the human spirit itself.

Joseph Covino¿s rendition is an intellectual, pastoral narrative in the tradition of Mary Shelley¿s original.---Chiaroscuros, the black and white defined objects, are so finely drawn in this most exquisitely written derivative. These rich images of characters and lands are described in meticulously well-researched detail. The emotions are intensely powerful and tender. I felt as if I were standing on the ice beside the polar bear watching that memorable addition to this Arctic scene unfold. Mr. Covino deliberately wrote this complex beginning in such a hauntingly beautiful monochrome.---And then the paint-box lid opens. The rhythm of the story speeds up a couple of gears just as the creature comes to life.---Within the context of Victor¿s salvation, we meet Dracula¿s Dr. Abraham Van Helsing and the boy, John Seward. Since this is the first title in a trilogy, we¿re sure the other tales will be as artfully woven.---This being a Christian parable, it is fitting that Paracelsus was one mentor to Victor. He was devoutly religious as is young, insightful Safie, the ¿Sweet Arabian¿. It seems as though their spirits have meshed and that she embodies his philosophy and gives it gentle voice.---¿Paracelsus was quite right¿corruption is the beginning of all birth, and that decay transforms shape and substance¿the forces and virtues of Nature. Decay is the instigator of prodigiously great things! It prompts many things to rot so that a noble fruit might be given birth, for it¿s the reversal¿the death and destruction¿of the natural essence of all natural things. It generates the birth and rebirth of creations a thousand times regenerated.¿---Beautiful passages of profound ideas and sensitively chosen words, FRANKENSTEIN RESURRECTED is triumphant. It is a clearly and thoroughly creative, cinematic journey to encounter the human soul.
