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?
First off, absolutely gorgeous book cover.
Milena is such a captivating character in this book because of the fact that she is fighting for her love. Her husband is not the man she married and she is trying to save him. I think the fact that she sticks by him and is so fierce in her need to save him from the darkness is really compelling.
Renner is hard to like at times during this book, but I think there are definite times that you see why Milena's love is so strong and why she is so determined.
I liked that there was true turmoil for the characters in this. It is not a Paranormal Romance in the typical way. It is very different from others of the genre. I think the additional genre tags really do play into the story as well. It is darker at times, but it has lighter moments as well.
Bravo Lanie Mores. You have brought a unique piece of writing with a very strong female lead and an unconventional premise.
