Blog Tour & Review: Nely Cab's "Creatura"


Title: Creatura

Author: Nely Cab
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy


Isis can control her dreams. Or she could—until recently. The creature in her nightmares has been haunting her for months. As if being dumped wasn’t bad enough, now she dreads going to sleep. She decides to confront the creature and win back some of her peace; only, she finds that he’s not a monster and he’s not a dream.
A sacrifice for love, a shocking discovery and a jealous ex-boyfriend blur the lines between reality and dreams, making it hard to tell who the real monsters are.

 My Review:

"Creatura"  exposes the reader to a magical enchanting world most people only dream of. Isis Martin doesn't want to sleep, because when she does she has extremely disturbing dreams. Sleep deprived & fed up, Isis decides it time to confront the beast chasing her through her dreams. She discovers the creature is human..........but hiding an unusual secret.

David *sigh* is the new guy at school.  The moment Isis lays eyes on him, her blood runs cold for David is the beast from her dreams. Once over her shock, David explains to Isis that he is a god & rules over Somnium the place that has plagued her dreams. David also admits he has deep feelings for Isis. The fact that she doesn't return them, doesn't stop David from pursuing her *sigh*

Oh but Nely's not done with y'all yet!! Just to add another loop in this fantastic roller coaster ride, we're introduced to Gabriel, Isis' ex boyfriend. He's made it his mission to get Isis back & will stop at nothing to make her his. Gabriel becomes obsessed with Isis & threatens anyone who he feels gets too close to her. David refuses to let him harm Isis & becomes her protector against Gabriel's strange behavior. This makes Isis see David In a new light & their relationship begins to develop. Can David protect Isis from Gabriel's evil intentions?? You'll have to read "Creatura" to find out!


What I thought:
There was never a dull moment in this book, I found myself gasping out loud several times. Just when I thought I had something figured out, Nely threw my for a loop I didn't see coming. I loved Isis!!! She was strong, independent & self assured. Although she loves David *sigh* she didn't need him to complete her. One of my favorite parts was when she confronted the beast in her dreams then to find out it was David!!!! OMG, David!! Handsome, strong & protective. His love for Isis has no bounds & he'd do anything to keep her safe. Gabriel is  kind of a creeper *shiver*  I found myself yelling at my iPad "Back up Jerk, she's with David!!"" There's a lot more to Gabriel that I'm not telling you (you'll have to read!!) but as the plot unravels you'll be shocked at what you'll discover! "Creatura" is a MUST read!!

At the entrance to the school, I found David sitting on a red brick bench, waiting for me.
“Morning,” I said, looking away for a second as I wiped the girlish grin from my face. I was remembering last night’s kiss.
“Good morning.”
He opened the glass doors for me, then took my hand and asked me to follow him to a semi-empty area across from the glass doors and windows. He gave me a gentle push and my back touched the wall. He leaned close and placed his finger on my lips. His touch sent tiny electrical shocks through every fiber of my body.
“I crave your lips. Give me but one taste and I’ll ask no more.”
I shook my head turned away, but he turned it back so that I was looking straight into his eyes.
“Why do you insist on this?” I asked.
“Why else would I crave your lips if I didn’t already know the sweet nectar that they possess?”
“No,” I said, shutting my eyes to keep from starring into his mesmerizing blue gaze. “It’s forbidden.”
“It’s as forbidden as the illicit fruit of Hades, but even he has eaten from it.”
