Loved the book.
Thanks!

Maybe it's because I read it just before Halloween, but the scene of Ericka's "Change" reminded me a great deal of the Universal Frankenstein movie. The dark, stormy night. The tech-filled lab located in a high tower. The opening roof. A scientist working to thwart natural order. Was this imagery intentionally alluding to this film or am I reading too much into this scene?
I wasn't specifically seeking to evoke or allude to Frankenstein, but inasmuch as that work has become iconic, I'd have to say that it seems at the very least to have been a subconscious influence on the scenes involving Valerian's death and Hernandez's catom-driven Change.
