Review 1, 8:07 P.M.
Okay, I'm finally getting to writing a review for Creatura. Sorry I haven't done it yet, I have had a lot of things going on at the moment and then I got sick for a few days so I'm doing this now or else I will never get it done. So, here goes...
I absolutely loved Creatura! It left me crying, anxious, breathless, in love with the characters, attached, wanting more and indefinitely starved. I just couldn't get my full of it. I need the second book. After talking with the author on Facebook and reading plenty of other peoples review's that she posts I finally got it when I got to my house and read it! Plenty of people have loved it and rated with five stars but if it were up to me I would rate with TEN stars. But, fortunately, Goodreads does not allow it (which they SHOULD). If they did, it would give a more accurate rating for books.
Anywho! I want to say thank you Mrs. Cab for the signed copy and all of the extra little trinkets that came with the book, which surprised me a bunch! Especially the feather that fell out of the book! I loved it!
Now, I just need to get the gold star... *coughs* Umm...
Okay! About Creatura. Creatura starts off with Isis Martin writing journal entries that her doctor suggested to help relieve some stress and she might be able to sleep again. Yes, Isis suffers from a sleep disorder. It isn't her fault that she does, bare in mind. The only reason she has trouble sleeping is because every time she dreams, she is in a field full of flowers and it is beautiful beyond compare until a figure keeps reappearing in her dreams making it hard for her to fall asleep. It might sound like the case of a normal nightmare but not when you end up in the same place in your dreams with the same figure showing up trying to scare you.
As Isis keeps on meeting this strange 'monster' in the distance, she decides one day that she is going to confront it than run away. When she does, everything changes for her; in the dream world and the real world. Spoiler alert! Do not read it if you haven't read Creatura! Not even if you're curious!(view spoiler)[The letters that David gives to Isis...*sighs dreamly* I wish someone did that for me. I loved each of the poems and the way they were signed at the end "Ceaselessly yours..." *insert another dreamy sigh here*, they just made me squeal and fall in love with David! Now, where can I get my own David that will do that for me? (hide spoiler)]
I loved Isis and her mothers relationship! I could see they both were best friends and even though her mother is older, they both coming out acting like how girls do and might as well be in high school talking about boys and how they're going to ever finish their homework. I also loved Nyx. She came out as a very well respected woman the first time she was introduced into the book. Her formal yet punctual demeanour left me felling loved as any mother should. And Gemini...Ha! I absolutely loved their humour and felt they were a valuable asset to the book. And David, David, David... Only one word to describe him: Amazing!
I wish I could tell you more but if I do, I might as well tell you the whole book, which I'm not going to, so, you are going to have to read it yourself. Trust me, you will not regret it one bit. You could read the first chapter on the Creatura page on Goodreads under the book cover.
