Prelude: A Creatura Novella by Nely Cab
Prelude – Creatura 0.5
It’s not easy creating life, but that’s what Deus was meant to do. And as amazing as his new creations may be, Deus finds that there’s nothing wonderful about being the only person in existence. Using his power, he molds a companion to keep him company; only, something goes awry and Starr soon proves to be as wild as the animals he’s crafted.
What do you do when the only other person in the universe hates you? You fall in love, of course…because that’s how forever begins.
Review:Prelude as the name suggests is a prequel to Nely Cab’s (must read for the romantics out there) novel – Creatura.
Well first off can we all just take a moment and appreciate the GORGEOUS cover?! It is so damn good!
I’ll admit at first I was a bit confused, but hang on to it; it gets better.
With two very strong willed characters – Deus and Starr, Prelude gives us Creatura fans a little something to tide us over till the next book. I loved the book world created and the writing style flowed beautifully.
Although, not as obviously romantic as Creatura, Prelude has its charms.
What I take away from the book is this – Love is complicated, love is lethal, and hope saves us all.
Seven weeks have passed. I’ve let time continue, but I haven’t moved an inch. I’ve been standing in the same green field staring at a motionless, crouching Starr. She’s a tiny and fierce wax statue again. I consult the voice of reason—my soul.
The voice of reason is the force that guides me. It’s within me, like a second person but without a body. It offers its wisdom, which is how I’ve been able to construct the Universe. But this voice, it also annoys me, and it won’t let me modify some things, including Starr.
No. This is her essence, and it cannot be changed, my inner self says in my head every time I so much as think to attempt it.
As I watch her, I know that I’m not afraid of Starr like the men of future Earth are afraid of their women. No. Not at all. What I am is truly and without a doubt horrified of her. I don’t know what to do.
In my hand, I materialize a baseball bat.
