Creatura By Nely Cab Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Welcome to the next blog stop for Creatura by Nely Cab!


"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."

If that overview doesn't make you want to grab this book, here is an excerpt from it that leaves your drooling for more!

“You haven’t even asked me what my name is,” he finally spoke.
“Oh. Sorry.” My face grew bright red. I didn’t have the guts to ask him now that he had put me on the spot.
We continued walking down the hallway. Right before we turned the corner he stopped walking.
“I see you’re the shy type.” He tried to analyze me.
“Not at all.” I threw my hair back over my ear.
He started advancing toward me and pinned me against the white hallway wall. My heart started to race.
“Well, aren’t you going to ask me what my name is?” he pressed.
“Don’t…don’t try anything. I can scream.” I could feel my throat drying up. “The security guards will come right away if you pull anything.”
His laugh echoed against the hallway walls.
“I just want you to know my name.”
I took a side step, but he was quick to follow.
“I’m going to tell you my name, since you’re too shy to ask.”
My heartbeat was at my neck, while my mind sounded off all the things I should do: “I should yell. I should punch him in the gut.”
I was frozen like a deer in front of headlights.
“It’s David…” He slowly leaned in toward my face, “…and I’m real.” I suddenly recognized that voice. I opened my mouth in an effort to scream at the top of my lungs. He pressed his hand over my mouth muffling my poor attempt at crying out for help.
“I win,” he grinned.
My entire body trembled frantically as I felt the blood plummet from my head and down to my feet. I was no longer breathing. I started to feel a cold numbness. Everything turned black. My legs caved in taking my consciousness with them.

Our Review of Creatura
First off, can I just say that I really liked this story!   Isis Martin is a 17 year old senior in high school who suffers from insomnia.  She has a reason for her insomnia though because every time she does manage to get some sleep, she has terrible dreams!  She goes to this gorgeous place in her dreams, but there is always this evil beast that is there and will not leave.   With the help of her psychiatrist (not to mention, her best friend, Andy’s, dad), she starts writing in a journal about the dreams that she has been having and thinks that maybe she can change the outcomes of them.  One night, she decides to confront the creature and gives him a challenge: If you are real, then prove it to me.  The beast leaves and she goes into a peaceful slumber.  
However, while at school, a new student shows up and if you read that well written blurb above about the book, then you know his name is David and, well, you guessed it, he’s the beast that has been terrorizing her dreams. David is hot and I do love me a blue eyed, black haired tall drink of water.  (Forgive me for a minute, while I swoon!).
I do not want to give too much of this book away because you need to read it! Here are just some little hints to make you go grab this book right now and read it!!
David and Isis are pretty much inseparable after he reveals himself.  Technically, they shouldn’t be together at all, him being a deity and she is a human after all ;)
 Isis has an ex-boyfriend, Gabriel, who broke her heart, and he shows up wanting her back. 
David has twin brothers and an awesome mom.  Nyx, David’s mom, sees something peculiar in Isis, but what could it be?
Finally, I am really very good at figuring out endings to books, but Ms. Cab, you had me.  I didn’t see that ending coming. 

So people go and buy this book!  Read it, love it, review it!  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!
