Blurb: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.

Who would’ve known…that sometimes love is lethal?

Kim's 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!

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.”
