About this ebook

Derrick's desire to save one human girl will ignite a war...

For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all...

As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he's destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family's strictest laws and falls in love -- with a human.

In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of fate propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they've spent thousands of years protecting.

Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can't save her from, herself.

The Creatus series is not your normal paranormal's a realistic supernatural romantic suspense based on the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe...

Editorial Reviews:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This story is completely unique, and is definitely not generic sex and vampires. In fact, I think Creatus will redefine the paranormal genre. Creatus has intrigue, suspense, romance, and tremendous depth." -- Quiet Fury Books

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This book could easily classify itself as romance / mystery / suspense / thriller... I'm not a big Twilight fan, but I did enjoy the first movie... I found Creatus reminding me somewhat of Twilight, but with actors I loved." -- New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda S. Prather

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "...well written, compassionately told, and creates characters that make you want to know them better. It is the foundation for a great series, and I believe it will be quite popular." -- Sweet Mystery Books.

Bonus Material! This special-edition boxed set includes the prequel, Creatus (They Exist), Creatus (Book One), and a sneak peek at Creatus Rogue.

It was a good read and flowed well, however I was a little disappointed that you didn't go further with the romance part of the book. It felt like you left out a huge part when you didn't explore, at least, the the first time they bonded completely or the passion they had for each other and honestly it didnt do a very good job of allowing the imginaion to even pick up the pieces you left out. I am only giving this book 2 stars because I felt like you should have painted a better picture of the romance.

This book captures your interest but it struggles to maintain interest. In honesty, I have read better fantasy and romance books which have elevated my expectations. There are a few lines that are constantly mentioned. There are many chapters that are just flat out boring. The loose ends are not resolved such as Kris' mother/sister confession. The story takes leaps so there is no smooth transition between chapters and years. There were moments that I was unable to determine who was speaking. Needs work!

This is my first time reading this authors work and I must say she's not won me over. I love Paranormal stories but this one fell flat. Great story concept around these creatus beings, something new but too much time was wasted on thoughts ideas and plan instead of more action. It was definitely used as padding to make the book longer which annoys me no end. There were too many boring pages I skipped through and too many questions left unanswered. And yes the romance was glossed over, once Derrick and Kris finally come together you turn the page and there's literally nothing. I thought the publisher had forgotten some pages! And then the book ends without fully explaining the huge crisis at the end. Worst cliffhanger ever
