If we allow enmity in our hearts, war is inevitable…

For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Now, one rogue faction plans to retaliate by ridding the world of humankind.

Only one division of creatus, with the strength and numbers to fight the sinister sect, stands between humanity and a new world order.

What they discover, however, might prove the truth about the creatus myths, and why humans started hunting them so many thousands of years ago.

Maybe humans were right…

Just some of the reviews…

5.0 out of 5 stars Never thought I would be reading a romance novel.

Never thought I would enjoy reading a romance novel. I hate them. I gave this series a chance only because I was curious about who existed, what is a creatus? Once I read the first of the series, I was hooked. Could not stop reading. Normally, I would stop in between the series and read another book before starting the next book of a series. With this book, I could not stop. I had to find out what’s coming next. It was well written, and I did enjoy the characters. I even enjoyed the antagonist of the book. For me, what made it a good read is the combination of the super heroism, supernatural, mystery and suspense ( oh yeah, the romance). All in one series. If you do decide to read it, just buy the set. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creatus Series

What a surprise…it is not a vampire, not a shape shifter but something totally different. I loved the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!

Excellent series! Completely different than anything I’ve read lately. It has just the right amount of mystery, action, scifi, love, hate, conflict, and new ideas. It kept me on my toes, surprised me and gave into what I hoped would happen. The characters are well developed and I love learning about them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Human or something more?

I loved this series. It had me looking at people differently. Are you just my neighbor, just my boss, or another species hiding in plain sight.

The Problem with Superheroes, Titans, Zombies, and Vampires… #AmReading #ParanormalRomance

Creatus-4Square

The Problem with Superheroes, Titans, Zombies, and Vampires…

Not that I have anything against any of the above entities, but only a select few of the books and movies with these preternatural sentient beings get it right.

Titans

They’d take out entire towns and demand sacrifices until a hero saved the day–usually, the god’s had to equip the champion, or the conqueror was part god in order to be able to conquer the typically enormous being with superior strength. Clash of the Titans

Superheroes

The good ones are okay, but what happens when they are under appreciated, or are just plain vicious. I.e. Superman Two, Megamind.

Zombies

Never understand how they take over the world unless the stories include airborne infections. I mean, really, haven’t you made your zombie apocalypse plan? I know my husband has… Get out! Seek water. Heck, we know what to do when a hurricane is coming. Stock up on batteries, bread, and milk, and seal up the house. World War Z.

Vampires

Only one vampire movie really got this one right, which leads up to my excerpt this week. Daybreakers. Have you seen it? Ugh! Gory, vicious, but it makes sense. In the second Twilight book, they tried to explain how the vampire elders stopped this from happening, but I think Daybreakers got it right. If you have a being that craves humans, has superhuman strength, and is immortal, face it; we don’t stand a chance.

Excerpt from Creatus

He stopped and glanced around the darkened park, thinking they should be getting home, but knew he needed to get to the scary part. The detail about his kind that fed the nightmares.
“We protect our own no matter what. Until there’s a rogue. As I said, we are mostly peaceful, but we do have our psychos, as humans do. The only problem iswhen one of my kind is homicidal, they eat their victims.” She shuddered and he rushed to assure her. “Don’t get me wrong. We don’t crave humans. Humans don’t even smell like food. Believe me, if my kind really craved humans, the human race would have been extinct a long time ago.”

Vampire: a preternatural being that is said to suck the blood…

creatus-series-boxed-set-flat-main

As an author, I’ve learned that no matter what you write, how you describe what you wrote, or what other reviewers commented about what you wrote, there will still be readers who don’t get it.

Just one of my many book descriptions: Ancient myths, superheroes, vampires… Forget everything you’ve heard.

Review: “The description of this book makes you think that its (her misspelling, not mine) about vampires…”

Review: “I think this book has potential to be popular but it just is not my type of book – too vampire/alien-ish for me.”

Yes, those two reviews were from the same book, and they were back to back. LOL!

Definition of a Vampire: a preternatural being that is said to suck the blood…

My thoughts… Since the beginning of the written word, storytellers have shared myths about supernatural beings. So, I did tons and tons of research about vampires, superheroes, and other myths, since they all share common traits, and I wanted to tell a story based on what seemed logical to me.

Personally, I love magical realism. I am a reader, and I want to believe. In order for me to believe, though, the story has to follow scientific laws. The idea of a person shifting into an animal form that’s ten times the size of its human form, or a person having the ability to fly without the required body mechanics, makes little sense to me. And in order for a body to function–corpse or not–it has to have a heart that pumps life-giving blood through its veins. But, I can’t discount that since biblical days, stories have amassed about sentient beings with superhuman strength. So…

CREATUS, from the Latin word meaning “created” are the reason we believe in fairy tales—and monsters. Superheroes didn’t come about from being bitten by a vampire, a werewolf, or a spider. Instead, perhaps the same superior being who created us created them.

The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story…it’s a realistic twist of the myths you’ve heard your entire life. So, if you like a little reality in your fantasy, prepare to believe…

 

And best of all…you can start the series FREE with the first two books!

Hope you enjoy my twist on an ancient myth.
