Review: Prelude + A giveaway

Prelude by Nely Cab
Prelude is the second release in the Creatura series by Nely Cab. It's a novella that gives the reader a more in depth of how it all began... of David's lineage... of everyone's lineage, really. Prelude quite literally tells the story of how forever begins. If you've read Creatura, you know why this is so important to the story. If you haven't read Creatura, then you should probably get started on that now before you fall even more behind on a great YA Paranormal romance series. You can read the review of Creatura by clicking here, and you can order the book from it's new publisher, Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing, now! Prelude (formerly Deus) has some of the best inner monologue I've ever read... and even though it's just a novella, it packs a lot of punch... and a lot of feels! 
and because I love you guys, I'm even giving you an excerpt of Prelude to try before you buy! (yeah yeah I know. you love me.) 
DAY 348
            I’m hungry and cold and the sun hasn’t risen for nine days. The rain stopped falling, but now it’s been replaced by snow. I’ve been crying for three days, and I can’t stop myself. My body is begging me to feed it, but I only have a few pieces of fruit left.
            I wipe my tears and breath raggedly as I take a spear and walk out of the cave. Flakes fall on my face and hair, melting into dreadfully cold moisture. For a moment, I want to return to the cave, but my stomach begins to ache from hunger, so I will myself to keep going. I need to find some meat and more wood, else I’ll starve and freeze. Immortality makes no sense when life’s all about an eternity of suffering.
            I can’t see anything in the darkness, and I trip a few times. Suddenly, I hear movement by the river.  I raise my spear, but I don’t know in which direction to cast it.  I hear a sound behind me, followed by a short growl, and quickly, I twist my neck. Two yellow eyes are peering at me, and I take a step back.  The largest feline creature I have ever seen—bigger than a lion—is sitting on its hind legs with a dead animal in its mouth. I raise my spear, and the feline lowers its head, dropping the carcass on the snow. It pushes the dead animal toward me with its nose and produces a sound like a whimper. Judging by its posture, I see that the creature has no intention of attacking. It continues to push the dead animal toward me, and I wonder what it wants. Cautiously, I take a step forward and see the corpse. It’s the same species as this feline, only much smaller.
