~ Excerpt ~
Eros sighed and closed his eyes. “I cannot help you. I’m sorry.”
“Yes, you can, Eros. You must. You have no idea what it’s like to need someone like you need the flow of your own blood.”
“David, you will never be able to procreate from this relationship. It’s against the law. My answer is firm. I can’t help you.”
Eros pressed his temples as if attempting to release the pressure of my petition.
“Eros… I’ve done something to prove my love for her. But I see that your support is too much to ask, brother. I shouldn’t have come.”
“Wait. Hear my thoughts on the matter. To be in love with a human…that’s impossible. You know the prohibitions of such acts. The law is impenetrable.” He walked to the bar again to serve himself another glass of wine. “You mentioned you had done something to prove your love. What exactly have you done, Romeo?”
“Do you really have to ask?” I sighed.
“I need an answer if you want my help.”
“I gifted her something of mine.”
“O Mon Dieu…”
“The Star Crest – my life – it belongs to her now.”
“Merde.” Eros dropped his drink for a second time. “Dahveed, you have done the unthinkable.”
I stared at the shards of glass on the hardwood floor and nodded. “It’s done.”
“You’ve gone insane. It’s suicide!”
~ Review by Angela ~
I had been hearing about Creatura for a while. It looked like a really good read and so when I finally got to the point where I was ready to read it, it wasn’t available in e-format!! Nely Cab had decided to re-do the cover and re-format the book. So, I had to wait until it was ready for publishing again unless I wanted to read it in paperback format. But I didn’t, because since it was getting a new look anyway, I figured I might as well wait until the new one was out!
Isis is not your typical teenager. She is practically a zombie in that she is only sleeping about 2 hours a night because of the dreams. She used to be able to control them, but lately, there is something wrong with her dreams. She keeps having the same one over and over and over again. And in this dream, there is a strange creature that is terrifying her and she cannot sleep. She keeps fighting the doctor and her mother because she doesn’t want to take sleeping pills that could keep her trapped in the dream. But, she gives in and decides to confront the creature. She doesn’t realize what kind of problems she is going to create when she does this. She also doesn’t expect to fall in love.
This book was so extraordinarily good!! I know it is listed as a YA, but anyone can read it. Anyone that wants to read an engaging, well written unique story about a girl having a tough time with life and relationships. She doesn’t understand why she is different, and she doesn’t want any trouble or complications in her life. She just wants to go to school and graduate and then move on with her life. But, her dreams and “others” have a different plan for her. Once she meets the creature, all plans are off and live starts spiraling out of control. Nothing makes sense anymore and Isis isn’t sure what to do or who to turn to. She just knows that some things are forbidden for a reason and shouldn’t be tampered with. It is probably the biggest understatement when I say that I cannot wait for the next book to come out and that I am bugging Nely for it all the time. As a matter of fact, it’s time for my daily harassing of her! Join me why don’t you!! Oh!! And if you couldn’t tell, I give this book 5 books!
