It’s the dawn of time and Deus is in charge of creating the entire Universe…only, creating things for no one but him to see is a bit pointless and truly lonesome. Deus molds Starr as a companion, but she could care less about Deus’s creations, being oblivious to the importance of it all. As if he didn't already have the entire weight of the Universe on his shoulders—literally—now, he has to deal with an irritable and beastly girl. Deus might be immortal, but he fears Starr will be the death of him. In this never-ending love story, the fate of the future is anything but child’s play…or is it?
Deus is a prequel novella that expands and enriches the realms in the Creatura Series by Nely Cab. The story will appeal to present fans and welcome new admirers to its world.
Where to buy: Deus (A Creatura Novella) by Nely Cab
Thank you Nely for the chance to read this book.
Deus is a short story with the action settled long before Creatura and it speaks about the creation of Terra and the creation of humans. It is actually connected somehow with the main book of the series, but you don’t need to read them in order so that you can understand it.
I finished this really fast and I started it right after I received it. I wasn’t planning to do so, but the book made me interested right from the start and I am not joking: the first sentence is great, you just read that part and you will feel compelled to read the rest.
First, I am darkness. Then, I am light. Now, I am the first.
Deus is the almighty God, he created everything and he is taking care of everything on Terra, until one day he realizes that he feels alone, and because of this he creates Starr. The only thing is that she is not exactly what he expected, but in a weird way she was what he wanted and needed. I liked her personality, the way she grew stronger and more confident in a short period of time and if I dare to say that in the end she was much more than her creator.
“What about the black birds up in this tree?” She points. “I don’t think I’d mind you killing those.”
“You want to eat crows for dinner?”
“They’ll do,” she nods.
Deus is a beautiful love story set at the dawn of time. It’s a story of discovery and learning in which both Starr and Deus start of as being innocent and naïve. What I found fascinating is the fact that Deus was using time travel to learn from the humans in the future.
This was a fast, fresh, funny and sad at the same time love story. :)
