As the sun's rays peeked above the horizon, lighting the abyss below her, she inhaled a deep breath, closed her eyes, and jumped. She didn't scream; she didn't look down. As much as she hated her life, she hoped it wouldn't end this way. She'd really like to see him one more time.

Her life didn't flash before her eyes as she'd always heard. Just an image of her mother covered in blood and her Dark Angel telling her he was sorry.

CREATUS is a new romantic-suspense novel with a supernatural edge that answers the myths and fairy tales you've heard about preternatural sentient beings.

Prepare yourself to believe.


On the whole I liked Creatus. It's a typical PNR in many ways, and you get what you'd expect from the genre, but the prose was readable and the story moved along at a good pace. My edition included the prequel, and I definitely found it helpful to know that background information. There were some downsides. I didn't think her alcohol problem was always handled as well as it could have been, and there's a slightly dubious aspect to their romance, seeing as he's been 'stalking' her since she was a child. However, if you are willing to let those things slide and simply accept the story as it is, then paranormal romance readers will no doubt find this an enjoyable tale. I give it 3.5 stars.
