Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have lived on the Earth for more than 4,000 years. Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales - and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes - and monsters. Because...they exist.
In the past, they kept the human race safe from an anonymous distance. But now, Derrick must come out of the darkness to save a woman he has no business loving, even if doing so may threaten his entire race.
The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story...it's a realistic romantic mystery based on the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe....
Bonus material: Creatus includes the prequel, Creatus: They Exist, and a sneak peek at Creatus Rogue.

"Much Better Than Expected!"
I was highly impressed with Creatus, and thought the plot was original which was refreshing. I actually completed it in less that 24 hours, the story moves at a good pace and kept me engaged.
The Creatus are not human, and try to keep their existence unknown from humans; however, Derrick, the overseer of the Creatus, vows to secretly watch over and protect eight year old Kris after her mother is killed in front of her. As the years pass, he secretly watches and protects Kris but as she grows from the young girl into a women, he falls in love with her.
The night Kris's mother was killed, she was saved from the same fate by a stranger wearing all black, and calls him her Dark Angel. As she grows up, she moves from one foster home to another and her life is not always easy; however, she never forgets her Dark Angel and senses he is real.Then one night she decides to take drastic measures to meet her Dark Angel and plunges to her death but Derrick saves her again.
Now that Kris is all grown up and knows her Dark Angel is real, their attraction for each other grows. She decides to join Derrick and his world but there are some Creatus's who do not agree Derrick should not be the overseer, or with a human. These Creatus put plans into motion to kill Kris and Derrick.
Anytime I start a new book with a narrator I've never heard before, I always have to get adjusted to the new voice; however, after the first hour, I was used to Marcio's voice and thought he did a great job narrating the story.
Creatus was a really good story and I was torn between a four or five star but ultimately settled for a four star. If the plot was a little more intense and the romance a little steamer, I would have given it a five star. However, this is definitely a credit worthy story and I will be on the lookout for the next book in the series.

"I really enjoyed"
This story is about a different twist on superhuman,true love, and danger
I hope there more to this .
I liked this book, it was an interesting version of mythical creatures from legend being mixed with a technology savy race, who had to give up their tech in exchange for a life on Earth, blending in with the human race. The story begins when the main female character is eight years old, she is watched over by one of these mythical men called Creatus until she becomes a woman. Then they begin a romantic relationship, despite the protests of the other Creatus. I got this book in exchange for a review
"They Do Exist!"
In the top 10 for sure. The narration and writing were excellent. Being paranormal, my favorite genre, was the reason for reading it.
I liked the fight when Vic was beating up on Michael thinking he was the rogue who just beat up on Reece and the following scenes of Michael expressing his love and the predicament of dealing with Reece.
I might have but don't remember. Loved his voice, so packed with emotion when needed, not mono toned or boring ever.
Yes, and I did. Very fast paced, never a dull moment, would recommend this book to any paranormal fan.
Enjoyed the story, not to far fetch and easy to get into. Looking forward in continuing the series.
Great read. Perfect narrator. Would recommend highly. Story while being a romance is not all about the detail of the physical acts but about storyline and plot.
I was gifted with this book for an honest review.
Included in this book is the Prequel. I listened to 9 chapters and still did not know what a Creatus is. We are told that they only eat fish in public, something about their aging process, they are very fast. Other then that...I knew even less then when I started the book. If the author had told us who, what, where,why and how this "people" were part of this book, maybe I would have finished it instead of relegating it to "lousy pile".
No, absolutely not. Would not waste the money. I only paid $1.99 for the audio version and the e-book was free. I spent to much money for this book.
For what he had to work with, no bad, but the story totally turned me off and he paid the price.
None..wait..not true...the e-book was free.
Not worth the $1.99 or the energy it took to purchase and listen to the first 9 chapters.
Gender reinforcement. so much it makes u want to gag. unless ur into that. The story was very slow far too many mundane details not enough grit. if u want a messed up girl waiting to be rescued by a selfish prince. then this ones for you. I struggled to get done with it. won't bother with the rest of series.
"I did not like the writing at all."
I didn't think that the writing expanded on the story. I hope that others find it a good read.
the story was good, and the narrator has a nice voice. the only draw back was the narrator reading it. i could hear him making a weird noise. it was kind of like he had gum in his mouth. distracting.
