A Blood-Curdling Tale Of The Affection Of One Mother For Her Son And Her Son’s Struggle For Truth, Freedom, And Love…
In the mystic land of Aztlan del Norte, a realm of supernatural happenings and unexpected turns of fate, psychiatric healer Gabriél de LaTierra encounters appalling evil within the Orphanage of the Holy Innocents. Children disappear for reasons kept secret by Mother Juana de la Cruz, Superior of the Nunnery and the Orphanage.
Love for Mother Juana, Gabriél’s widowed mother turned religious superior, clouds her devoted son’s mind. Consuela, Gabriél’s wife, confronts his wall of denial. Torn between love for mother and wife, Gabriél turns inward.
It is Consuela who propels Gabriél’s discovery of the nighttime blood sacrifice of children in the desert, a centuries-old ritual that imparts immortality to Mother and her nuns. Gabriél is further enraged by Mother Juana’s vengeful attack on Consuela and her kidnapping of their four-year-old son, Cuauhtémoc. But his actions will determine whether Consuela and Cuauhtémoc live or die, and the fate of Mother Juana de la Cruz.
“A vibrant, dramatic and disturbing novel packed with religious fervour, magic realism, and horror. DeBlassie brings both the natural and supernatural elements of the desert of New Mexico alive in the mind of the reader. Passionate and inspired, Goddess of Everything makes a notable contribution to the Visionary Fiction stable.”

“Paul DeBlassie III uses his in-depth understanding of human emotions and their healing in Goddess of Everything. He aims at two institutions held up as unassailable in Western culture–motherhood and organized religion. He takes aim at two institutions held up as unassailable in Western culture–motherhood and organized religion. We see the dark underbelly of both. The mother who wants to control, possess, and consume the life she’s produced. The church that hides sexual and spiritual abuse under the skirts of its priests and nuns. In a novel rich with Latinx mythology and a deep understanding of psychic gifts, DeBlassie plots a course for us to escape such abuse and heal. Even thrive.”~ Theresa Crater, Ph.D., author of the Power Places and Mystic Assassin series.
“Goddess of Everything, by Dr. DeBlassie, is a fascinating short read that commences eloquently with a perfect epigraph and an exquisite prologue, preparing the reader for what’s ahead. The book delivers a compelling, semi-poetic discernment that touches the reader’s heart all along the way. One could easily relate to this marvelous work as it incorporates the very psychology of very well-thought-of emotions. The author has persuasively depicted vivid pictures that carry the reader right to the scene. Throughout the manuscript, one couldn’t help but feel a sincerity between the lines, a sentiment that deeply touches the hearts of those who long to perceive what they read. Very well written manuscript–a must-have in everyone’s library.”
~ Dr. Hussam Atef Elkhatib, author of Who Are We: Seeing Ourselves through the Eyes of One Another
