In chapter 22 Victor gets a letter from Elizabeth who is concerned that Victor's unhappiness might be because he is unhappy to marry her. Victor assures her it's nothing he could have wanted more, though the monster's threat to him on his wedding night makes him worry for his life.

In chapter 23, Victor assumes that the monster wants to murder him while in matrimony but it's his beloved who's murdered instead. His father, Alphonso, dies of grief. Victor seeks a Genevian magistrate, but the magistrate refuses to pursue the case claiming because the court can't trail the supernatural (but could be because he doesn't believe Victor's story).

In chapter 24 (to the end letters) the monster leads Victor on a chase but Victor follows because he wants to extinguish him. He leads him onto the ice caps where nature is no longer a consolation. It's cold and Victor could die.

Soon, Victor finds Walton's ship and saved while stranded on a melting ice cap. Victor knows his story is recorded by Walton. Walton decides to quit his dangerous voyage before Victor dies of cold.

The monster then enters the cabin and Walton sees him for the first time. Walton is inhospitable to him because of what he did to Victor. The monster states he no longer has a will to live. He promises he will not kill again and jumps out of the cabin, rolling into the waves.
