Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This prequel starts fourteen years before the events in Creatus Book One. I highly recommend you read this prequel first so you can get a look into the characters' lives leading up to the full story. Prepare yourself for a cliffhanger ending, though. 

Rating note: Although this story would probably receive a PG-13 rating, the content is appropriate for ages sixteen and older due to alcohol and drug use. Neither, however, is ever glorified. There are also some scenes of driving under the influence. Please know that I do not condone these actions; they are only used to display the character's state at the time.

About the Author

Although all of Carmen's stories have a common thread--romance, mystery, and suspense--not all of her novels are supernatural. Her first five books are romantic-suspense whodunits. They are all stand-alone novels; however, she does link each of her stories with a little surprise. She also has a series of mysteries with a ghostly edge. Please look for all of her books on her Amazon author page.

More About the Author

A romantic-suspense writer, my stories overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, a hint of paranormal sometimes, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a great story be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although some of my titles clearly include supernatural or ghostly beings, my writing dances on the edge of the paranormal, in a genre referred to as magical realism. My hope is that as you read my stories, you'll wonder, "Hmmm...what if?"


As most authors, I blame my leap into a full-time career as a professional writer on my love of reading. Reading has always been an escape for me. When life was rough as a child, I could always disappear into a book. But I found something else too... I discovered that writing out my thoughts was healing. Not only could I create hope for my protagonists, but I could do away with the antagonists--legally.

When I penned my first novel, 'She Belongs to Me', I allowed only my cousin and best friend to read it. They are the reason I write. They pushed me to publish, as they felt my stories would give others who've experienced tragedies hope. So now, even though I still write for me, I mainly write for my readers who continually encourage me that my words touched their soul.

Most of my novels share some of my favorite hobbies, mostly, anything to do with the great outdoors. I rarely spend my days off at a movie theater or the mall. In fact, I hate shopping, and my hubby would prefer to do anything other than take me to a movie that I'd already read the book. :) Also, we both would rather read a book on the beach--or a coffee shop if it's raining--and if the weather is really nice, we love to go kayaking and hiking.

I finished book 1, CREATUS, and had just started book 2, when CREATUS (THEY EXIST) came out. So I paused my reading and grabbed this one instead.

So glad I did!

Book 1 starts pretty late in the game, leaving many questions as to how the characters got to the point they are when we meet them. Creatus (They Exist)covers these holes. Unlike most stories, this one was probably pretty tricky to write, simply because anyone who has read book 1 already knows the outcome. With that in mind, Carmen still creates a story with all the tension and unexpected twists and turns needed to keep a reader's attention.

New aspects are brought into the characters' backgrounds, which really deepens the understanding of their later actions as well as adds a new insight into their personalities. I felt as if I were getting to know the characters all over again.

The pacing is great, always introducing new aspects that I didn't see coming. I read this in two sittings and had trouble putting it down after the 1st one (but we all need our sleep). I still found myself fevering for the main character's safety although I knew she'd be okay, since I'd read book 1.

Summed up, Carmen DeSousa did a great job in filling in the information that I really felt was missing in book 1 and accomplished it while still adding new bits, twists and turns. I really recommend this to anyone who has already read the other books in this series as well as to anyone who is just starting with it.

I was reading Creatus when my Kindle notified me of this prequel. I had already read the first 20% so reading this went over the same time period but with a different perspective. I am so glad I did. It was an interesting experience. The note from the author at the end cracked me up. So, back to book one - feeling excited!

I loved book one of this series, so I was excited to get the prequel and learn more about the characters. Unfortunately, though it is well written, it didn't add much to my understanding. It also ended very abruptly. I understood why it stopped where it did, but even with a prequel, I want a story to feel complete.

I very much enjoyed the book. I got hooked once I read it. Normally, I would not buy books with romance, but I was curious about what a creatus is. What made this book enjoyable was its combination of action, suspense, mystery, fun and of course romance. I'm hooked. I would recommend buying the book set. You will not be disappointed.

I read this after reading the first two, but I'd highly recommend reading it first. It explains a lot about the set up for the first book and gives you a good understanding of the characters' histories.

I should have gone lower on the rating. I found it irritating that the author apologizes at the end of the story for it being a cliff hangar and goes on to make amends by giving a chapter of the the next book. The time to tell me it was a cliff hangar was in the book's description-which doesn't mention it. Now that wasn't a surprise.

I want to buy the next book, but I won't-it goes against my rules.

The Beginning: Creatus ( they exists) The Prequel By Carmen Desousa

I've read every book in this series, it's one of my favorite series. I like that Carmen wrote a prequel it gives me more insight about the characters beginnings. If you haven't read any of this series, this is a great one to start with. Strong characters that are consistent through the whole series. The author writes flawlessly from one book to the next. I believe there could be Creatus out there, you'll see what I mean when you read this series. The characters are so real, the settings are clear in your mind, you feel like you get a feel for Boston. I highly recommend this series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this well written and intriguing prequel to the Creatus series - so much that I bought the box set...I need to know what happens next.

This tale was cleverly done, with just the right amount of mystery to keep me reading. I loved the concept and look forward to the interesting mix of fantasy, science fiction and 'reality'.

I have kept this vague because I don't give spoilers.

Overall, a great read with an interesting 'something different'.

Recommended if you are prepared to want more.
