Victor Frankenstein is the first to unlock the key to life, but not the last.

Over two centuries of relentless advancement, five more minds find the secret, and five more creatures are made. Five more stories end in tragedy. From the stinking streets of 1850s London to the sun-drenched hysteria of a modern cruise liner, amidst passion, jealousy, art, obsession, desperation and war, Creatures is a hidden history of a forbidden science.
