Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Marker of Hope: Creatura #3 by Nely Cab is a well-developed and blood-pumping story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. Although I have not read the previous novels in the series, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The story follows Isis, a young girl who is quickly changing into Creatura. She has just returned from Greece after the devastating loss of her boyfriend, David. She has a raging desire to eat human flesh, but she has other things to worry about. The Turpis are not leaving her and they have tracked her down. They are after her and they will not rest until they have her life. To survive, she must accept help from the deities that she does not trust, but she has no other choice. A battle is upon her and if she does not do something fast, she will not be able to survive. Her hunger for human flesh is getting out of control and she needs to do something about this as well. If she does not take any action soon, the Turpis will be upon her and there won’t be much that she can do. What can I say about this novel? It is intense, sharp witted and very well-written. I loved Isis and I simply wanted to know more about the Turpis. These demons are intriguing, powerful, and I wanted to see even deeper into their psyche. The writing style is perfect for this story; author Nely Cab kept the momentum going with her intelligent dialogues and very imaginative descriptions. This is definitely one of my favorite novels of the year so far. Brilliant!
* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. * This is book 3 and the final book in this series - you must read the previous 2 books to be able to understand what is going on in this book. The other disclaimer that I MUST add is that you should read this with tissues nearby and with plenty of time on your hands because you won't be able to put it down nor will you be able to function after all of the ugly crying, yelling and cursing of the author. With that all out of the way - this book was one of my all time favorite books this year!!! I can't believe all of the twists, turns, conniving, plot twists that the author threw at us...she will evoke every emotion that the reader has in them with this one!! You will laugh, cry, ugly cry, snot all over, yell, scream and perhaps at times threaten her with bodily harm (sorry Nely). This book gives the reader an amazing sense of closure while at the same time making the reader mad that the book series has ended - there SHOULD be more!!! Isis and David are still trying to figure out their lives when Eros, the Turpis and an army all interrupt to make their lives even more exasperating! They find out some interesting news, battle through various fights and still try to live their lives together, as a "normal" young couple in love. Will they be able to remain together?!? Will their love be enough?!?! Will Eros save the day?!?! All these questions and more will be answered as you read this story! The plot is unique, you can feel the author's love for writing, mythology, and the characters jump through the pages at you, and most of all you feel like you are a part of their story. The author does an amazing job with keeping the reader on the edge of their seat trying to predict what will happen next, while at the same time trying to see the pages through their blurry tear filled eyes. If you haven't read this series yet, you MUST!! It is an amazing series that can't be missed!!! Go one - click Creatura (It's free!) and get started today on this phenomenal series by and even more phenomenal author!!! Sit back, cry, and enjoy!!!
