The unexpected discovery of a frozen corpse at the North Pole brings back a giant, hideous, and mysterious creature from the past to present-day California. When the awful thing unexpectedly reawakens from its icy grave it begins a new life in our world.
The Creature tells an exciting, knuckle biting story of this reawakened creature's introduction into a contemporary world. The story explores a modern response to a pseudo human-being. Science is fascinated, greed is motivated, and yet fundamental human traits such as kindness and disgust flow through the story. Are we any better than we were 200 years ago? What benefits has science brought to our social interactions? Who are we, and what differences are we willing to accept?
This imaginative story is scary, fascinating, and raises difficult to answer questions about the very core of what it is to be human.
Able Greenspan from the Midwest Book Review:
Impressively complex and as entertaining as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, "The Creature: Forgotten Prometheus" documents author David Millett as an extraordinary literary talent who will leave his readers looking eagerly toward his next novel. Very
highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections, it should be noted that "The Creature: Forgotten Prometheus" is also available in a Kindle edition.
Mary Sadtler Amazon review: This book begins with a terrifying nightmare for those who find a monstrous creature beneath the icecap. Like the human race the creature has many facets to his character. He can show both a benign and an evil side. He keeps the reader guessing. Will he show his fellow men how to redeem the world? Or will he reveal an inner depth of unspeakable decadence? The imagery is powerful.From the freezing, inhospitable wastes, to the scents of California, Mr Millett takes you on a journey that makes your heart beat a little too fast! This book reminds the reader of man's inhumanity to man, and questions whether any lessons are learned in the journey through life.
Reviewed by Sierra Edelen for Readers' Favorite
This was a great book and I love how it tells the story and how it keeps
the mystery factor as the plot develops. It is hard to describe this book
without revealing the entire story. It has all the elements of a good read.
It has a sense of mystery but also a sense of love, because all this
creature really wants is to be loved and accepted by society. It is a
perfect book for when you need to pass the time in a good way, but also
when you want to add some excitement to your life. I recommend this for
young adults to adults, but would be wary of younger readers because of
some graphic descriptions of violence.
