1.0 out of 5 starsFor the Author's Consideration.

I truly don't want to give this a single star. This story has the potential to be great, but there are just so many things wrong. I'm a person with a background in molecular biology, as well as microbiology. This means I caught what the author was trying to accomplish by being as scientifically accurate as possible. At some point the writing begins to come off as pretentious. I also am an avid reader with a passion for writing. I know how it feels to finally get your story onto paper after it's been trapped in your head for so long. It feels great. Don't let that blind you. The editing is horrid in this. I mean horrid! The story is slowly driven by weak devices. The characters are hollow with some of them having next to no backstory. Completely forgettable. This book has a laundry list of issues. I gave this book a greater chance than I should have. Making it 90% of the easy through before I just couldn't handle it. I felt like I was a beta reader, and I paid $20 for this. Not fair for what I got. If the author sees this I'm begging you to take this book to some of your colleagues in the English department. Have them help you polish it. It needs an industrial buffer, but there is a potentially incredible story in there buried deep. I don't write this review to be snarky. I do this because I want to hear about an Abomination Creation release after some wicked editing and multiple rewrites.

There are some stories we read where we don't like it because it wasn't imaginary enough. The backstory of the characters wasn't detailed enough. This story is the complete opposite of that. I have to say I felt inferior reading this. The knowledge and/or extensive research done by the author is superb. It is a little above my paygrade. I found myself skimming quite a bit through this story as i felt I didn't need all those details. If your are an extremely detailed reader, I highly suggest this book for you. I feel this was a long winded version of how demons come into this world. I will definitely be reading book 2 because I want to see if the story picks up the pace a bit. I would have given it 3 stars, but I feel that just because I couldn't understand some of it, that's not the author's fault. Overall a good debut. It would be a great movie or a series.

Boring. So much backstory having absolutely nothing to do with charlrscters. I finally had to put it down. I tried, but there's nothing there. I thought about skipping ahead, but it felt like cheating. To the author: We don't care about the history of the city. Not enough for you to drone on and on about it. Show us the characters. Make us care.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe SciFi Story you never knew you needed to read!

This book was a phenomenal read. In a world of endless remakes, this story stands out as a fresh thrilling adventure based on the age old conflict of good and evil. The author takes special care to set up each character to be real and relatable. Even the minor characters that show up only for a moment seem to have more to them then what first meets the eye. Suddenly characters you forgot about show their true colors and change the course of the story. The story is flavored with thrilling mystery and shocking twists. Perhaps the most chilling aspect of the book is that there very well could be a Creation Abomination. I can't wait for the second installment.

Creation Abomination was unexpectedly creative and unique for what was imagined. The detail and descriptive language was not used lightly which provided the ability to read and picture what was happening with ease. The science used was accurate and abundantly found throughout the book and was written in such a way that was understandable despite a lack of knowledge on the subject. Overall, it was an amazing read and I look forward to future works by the author!

I really enjoyed this novel and thought it was great fun. The plot grabbed me and I had a hard time putting it down. Ended up reading through it in about one day. And... there's a great twist at the end. I'm still smiling. Enough said :-)

Very exciting book. I’m impressed with the first of a series of three books. I was captivated from the start. The story line is very realistic in nature. Any person interested in the scriptural references in the book of revelations and the end of times, will enjoy reading this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Great read!
