There was only ever meant to be one Creator.

In 1972, German scientist Renner Scholz travels to Barbora Bay, Washington where he meets the love of his life, Milena Nowak. Only believing in things proven by science, he becomes obsessed with determining the underlying genetic basis of Milena’s psychic gift.

Stumbling upon an occult ritual, Renner is connected to the spiritual realm where he discovers an unrivaled power that fuels supernatural abilities. But, the answers he’s been searching for come at a cost—his soul.

Driven by new darkness that resides within him, Renner has a breakthrough in his research—able to genetically produce psychic abilities in humans. Milena helplessly watches as her husband becomes deceptive, volatile and both physically and mentally more powerful. Can Milena save Renner from this evil presence? Or will she become an unwilling participant in his next experiment—one of the darkest kinds?


This is a very character driven novel and I love the fact that Mores has given us both characters to root for and dislike. Even with the main characters there are aspects about them that don't always sit well with the reader and their motives aren't always known, but I liked the way that she manages to keep them connected to us. 

There is history woven through this book. The romance isn't a highlighted feature as much as the other aspects, but it lent to the story as a whole. It was more of a believable relationship and the ups and downs that come with them long term type of romance. 

There is a darker element to the novel that I loved along with humor in between it all.It showed that a novel can toe the line of fantasy and reality quite seamlessly.
