AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & REVIEW: Creatura Series by Nely Cab

Welcome back to the last week of the Author Spotlight featuring Nely Cab. This final week, I will be sharing my reviews of each book that I have read, so that you can decide for yourself whether you wanna go and purchase these books. I know in my heart that you will enjoy them as much as I have. So, let's get on with it.....

A Creatura Novella .5
Nely Cab

Deus, the creator of the universe, is almighty and powerful—until he uses his abilities to mold a companion. His newest creation, Starr, proves to be as wild as the animals that inhabit Terra. There's no controlling her. To make matters worse, she hates Deus. So what's the one boy in the universe to do when the one girl in the universe loathes him? The only illogical thing to do. He falls in love.

I have loved Creatura ever since Ms. Cab introduced to us a wondrous, mystical, and magical story back in 2011, when I won my very first print copy.

As I sit here typing this review, I have so many thoughts in my head about this compelling story that I just finished reading, and of course, I don’t want to talk too much for fear I will give something important away. Though, I do have to tell you that Prelude has once again captured my heart and made me love this author’s writing style even more. I was so addicted to this story that I actually read it in an hour.

I really enjoyed the characters in this story. I did feel sorry for Deus and his feelings throughout this story along with Starr’s feelings as well. The details were so vivid that I had a movie in my head from beginning to end. I actually had tears in my eyes for most of the story. There is so much love, joy, happiness, sadness, and an unforgettable and fabulous ending.

This is a phenomenal story that will suck you in heart and soul and may even keep a piece of it in the story when you finish reading it. This is a recommended MUST read!!

Thank you, Nely Cab, for another peek into your world!!

The Creatura Series #1
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.


I am so dumbfounded by this book, I have no words really to describe my feelings for this book. The cliffhanger itself was out of this world. This is an amazing YA Romance story with quite a twist you wouldn't expect from this book. It's kind of like a Disney story with a magical twist on it. I love the characters in the story and I must say Chapter 1 is still by far my favorite part of the whole book. I love how the author reels you right in from the beginning, and let me tell you, I WAS HOOKED!!! I love how what you think is a dream can be a reality and this author did it. This is a fast paced and so believable, you will think you are watching a movie in your head, and believe me when I say that you won't want the book to end, because I sure didn't. So, go ahead and purchase the book and be ready for a mystical, magical, and wondrous story that will keep you entertained for hours. I give this a 5 book review.

Fruit of Misfortune
The Creatura Series #2
Nely Cab

Isis' goals for the future included things like attending and graduating college. However, becoming a monster wasn't part of the plan. Isis and her boyfriend, David, are on the brink of a horrible transformation and they are eager to stop it. Together, they set out on a quest to Greece to find Isis' biological father—the only person that may be able to help them. Their journey comes to an abrupt stop before it even begins when Isis falls ill, and Eros, David's best friend, arrives in Athens, unannounced and curious…with a plan of his own.

The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.

Nely Cab has once again left me in awe and amazement. I am speechless and even more excited to have had the privilege to read and find out what had happened this book first hand. This phenomenally written story had the best and awesome twisted story that only could be written by Ms Cab. I loved the characters in the story and I loved the fact that this story picked up where Creatura left off. This author has a way of writing that pulls you in and keeps you craving for more from beginning to end. I absolutely loved the suspense, action. and humor that is placed firmly in place throughout this phenomenal story. I highly recommend this roller coaster ride to all Paranormal lovers. This story will blow you away with its awesome plot and shocking ending. If you are not yet a fan of this author, you should be and I guarantee this author will not leave you dissatisfied. I am so in love with this memorable series and I can't wait to read more from this incredible author. 

Marker of Hope
The Creatura Series #3
Nely Cab

Who will save her from herself?

Upon her return from Greece with three new friends and a broken heart, Isis' hunger for human flesh is stronger than ever. She's a miserable mess after losing David following her betrayal. Her mutation into Creatura is all but over when she receives the surprise of her life, compelling her to seek out David's family. Only, they've broken all ties with her, and she doesn't know how to reach them.

Turpis, the demonic beings that attacked Isis in Greece, have tracked her whereabouts. Now, in order to fend for her life, Isis must join forces with deities she doesn't trust.

Is Isis truly the Marker of Hope as she's believed to be, or will she lose the battle to her starving inner beast and demons, obliterating humankind from existence? Find out in the epic finale of the best-selling CREATURA SERIES.

WOW...What can I say....I am speechless and that doesn't happen very often either. My emotions are on a roller coaster ride right now. I have followed this author since she first published Creatura and I have had the honor of seeing every adventure unfold since the beginning and this author has once again surprised and shocked me in this story. To actually know that this is the end of the adventure for David and Isis makes me sad, but I am happy at how the ending turned out.

The characters are still just as awesome as they have been in the past. Isis has really grown in this story a lot since we met her in Creatura. She is a remarkable character that has an awesome heart for family and friends. Her powers are really awesome too. The love between Isis and David is so incredible, and yet just grows even stronger than before.

The story-line of the book was AMAZING with every shocking twist and turn of each page. I laughed, smiled, and cried throughout this entire story. I was totally entranced by the words coming off the pages that it made it very hard to put down. I even had dreams while sleeping about the story, though I must admit, my dreams outcomes never matched up with the book. There were always new revelations that were brought forth that I was never expecting in every shocking scene that I read. I have literally fallen in love with this last book during every moment that I spent reading it. This author has taken us on a fantastic journey that I will never forget and I will continue finding myself wanting to go back and re-read and never get tired of it. 

I also believe that this would make for an awesome movie and I would fangirl for joy if the time came that it was on the big screen. I give this book not only my five book review but a standing ovation and a huge BRAVO to the author for creating such an awesome world that will be remembered for generations to come. I highly recommend this book and I know in my heart that you love it as much, if not more, than I have. Thank you, Ms. Cab, for the adventure, it was for sure a phenomenal ride.
