Quick Reads Review: Creatura

Creatura by Nely Cab

Sometimes Love is Lethal

Synopsis: When seventeen year-old Isis Martin is having trouble sleeping due to perturbing dreams of a horrific growling beast, she decides to confront her fear. But what Isis discovers is something other than a menacing entity. The human-like creature offers Isis assurance that he is not a figment of her imagination. Unwilling to accept his avowal, Isis sets his words to contest by asking the entity to prove himself - a dare, he readily welcomes. It is in her dreams that Isis innocently stumbles upon the silent existence of the divine lineage of those that man has long forgotten. In a quaint town, deep in south Texas, this story leads Isis onto the path of impermissible love and captivating life-changing truths. Isis Martin's journey is sure to leave any reader ravenous for more

I really loved this read. I started it around 7 pm, finished it at 3 am. I literally, could not put it down. (Everyone knows the feeling.) This book is just so different from anything I've read before. Now, I have my favorites and I will admit that some of them seem to be recycled stories with a "twist", but that is NOT the case with Creatura
On top of the beautifully written, different story, Creatura's main character, Isis is not your run of the mill character. I love this. It's so nice to see authors break the mold with their characters and not feel the need to conform to what everyone else is reading. Isis isn't your all american girl. She's Hispanic, and while it's not something that is droned on and on about, it's nice that the clarification is made. Sure, she's drop dead gorgeous, but only in someone else's eyes. I like this too. 
You guys should know by now I never ever post spoilers. So let's just say you'll enjoy this romance. Yes, it's paranormal. No, it's not like anything you've read before! Highly Recommend and can't wait for the sequel!
