#Review: Prelude – Nely Cab
Being the Creator sometimes has its drawbacks. Most especially when there’s a woman involved. From the moment Deus created Starr, he knew his life would change. Although he made her to be his companion, she turned out to be something else entirely. She’s willful, demanding (sometimes), and beautiful. She makes him feels things no one else ever has. Granted, she’s the only one in existence during their timestream. Aside from the animals and flora he’s created, of course.
Determined to make things work between them, Deus concocts a plan to make Starr happy in every way possible. Though that notion doesn’t always work out to his advantage, he’ll do whatever he can to help her understand the world they live in. At first, things are a little shaky between them, but soon, they come to know one another in many ways.
As he comes to understand Starr, and what makes her who she is, Deus soon realizes that things are changing rapidly within him. Though Starr herself may not notice anything outright, he knows he can’t help himself when it comes to her. He’s begun to love her in more ways than one. The thought is mind-boggling, at first, but he soon warms up to the idea.
Change is coming. He can feel it in his very soul. Though he’s not sure as to what it’ll mean for him and Starr. If only he could hold on to the way things are now. It would keep things stable between them. Sadly, he knows there’s no delaying what will come their way. Deep inside, he hopes they’ll be able to whether the storm. After all, they were meant to be together. The question is, how can he truly make her happy when she’s not exactly what he’d thought she’d be from the get-go?
I think this is a good prequel to the Creatura series. We get a sense of who Deus and Starr really are. Their relationship isn’t easy one, but they do everything possible to co-exist. It’s refreshing to see the more human side of such a deity. Starr’s willfulness complements Deus’ innocence. At least, I think so. Although he grows up along the way, as does Starr, Deus still retains a child-like quality and naïveté that makes him endearing to the reader. Looking forward to more of this lovely world Nely has created.

Prelude – Creatura 0.5
It’s not easy creating life, but that’s what Deus was meant to do. And as amazing as his new creations may be, Deus finds that there’s nothing wonderful about being the only person in existence. Using his power, he molds a companion to keep him company; only, something goes awry and Starr soon proves to be as wild as the animals he’s crafted.
What do you do when the only other person in the universe hates you? You fall in love, of course…because that’s how forever begins.
