morally disturbing path Following a series of devastating events, he finds himself on the run from the FBI There is now no turning back and John is determined to see his experiment through, no matter who has to suffer, in the name of progress Follow John through many decades and continents as he tries to master his life s work and get his retribution before the FBI can stop him.This science fiction thriller will hook you from the first page The suspense throughout this fast paced plot will always keep you in anticipation The medical jargon is just enough to understand and enjoy the story but it is clearly very well researched John Numen is a disturbed character who believes his macabre work is for the benefit of mankind Whether he is a villain or a misunderstood hero will be for the reader s belief system to decide The tangled web of deceit and corruption in the story is woven throughout with nail biting conflict Not often does a novel make you question your own values but this one did mine Each of the characters was well created and three dimensional, especially Irina, a strong minded fighter with a fierce attitude towards the cold blooded and callous Roman The hunt by the FBI at the end had me on the edge of my seat, followed by an excellent twist that was absolutely masterful flag Like see review Oct 03, 2018 Asher rated it it was amazing review of another edition The

in their vastness he s a brilliant billionaire who aspires for power and athanasia, whatever the cost And the cost for his family, all those around him, and society as a whole is incalculable.Darrell Lee delivers the suspenseful tale of Dr John Numen s insatiable appetite for immortality with the skilled hand of a master storyteller The Apotheosis shifts in narrative between John s point of view through a third person present tense to future journal entries that shed light on a tortured genius and come to a head with an unexpected twist Although this is a science fiction thriller, Lee avoids the pitfalls of peppering in medical babel and is able to make the material believable and understandable even for a reader like me Two heartbreaking moments in the first third of the book establish John as an antihero and the restraint shown in developing Lee s characters, eschewing black and white, good vs evil, allows for their complex and fully fleshed personalities to become larger than life.Who do we root for That s up to the reader to decide.Highly recommended.Review written for Readers Favorite flag Like see review Jan 07, 2019 Theresa rated it it was amazing review of another

rather than overshadowing it The plot is powerful, disturbing and truly thought provoking After reading The Apotheosis I asked myself, Could this really happen someday I m afraid to say that I think it could This is a story that sucks you in from the beginning and when it lets you go at the end, the only thing left to say is wow I was particularly refreshed by how this book was a separation from the often formulaic plot lines of many books of this genre It was truly a unique book with a story that does not remind me of anything I ve read before I highly recommend this book to anyone who
