It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. "Creatura" is one of my all time favorites. I read the first book when I was thirteen and barely knew anything about Greek mythology. I had just moved to Greece from Romania and I was struggling to learn the language and adapt in this new country. Everything was pretty tough, but suddenly, there was this book full of romance and fantasy and adventure that made me feel infinitely better. For me, "Creatura" was a turning point in my life as a read ...more

Marker of Hope is the final book in the Creatura series and Nely did an amazing job. This book was my favorite out of the three; I laughed (a lot and loudly), I cried, I was worried for the characters I love, terrified for how the book would end but mostly I loved it.

Isis has grown a lot in this one, she remembers her past mistakes and tries to do better. She also has to deal with a lot of stuff and for someone who wasn't as strong as Isis is would have drowned in their emotions if they were in

I actually read this book when it first came out... but I never wrote my review for some crazy reason. Which meant I had to reread it entirely. Okay, I didn't actually have to read it again, but I wanted to - and I do what I want

Anyway, I love Nely Cab's writing. She's just... fantastic. There's feels and there's hilarity. Very important things for me. And I loved it the second go-round.

I read this conclusion in one day. I enjoyed the ending of this series. So much happened that I truly enjoyed. I love that we experience true loss in this novel. So well done. I recommend the series!

* 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.

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.

FIVE TOTALLY HUNGOVER PLATYPIRES FOR MARKER OF HOPE

OMG!!!!!!! Y'all! I've waited FOREVER for this book. I've nagged. I've started hashtags. Okay, I can't actually claim credit for starting #WhereIsBookThree, but I most definitely perpetuated it. So, I perpetuated hashtags. I've been CRAVING this book.

And OH. MY. BLEEP. Y'all, Nely Cab may have made us wait 4050683930202 billion (ish) years for Marker of Hope, but she made the wait worth it. It's so bleeping worth it. It's fast paced, it's glori

Superb Ending To A Wonderful Series

I was really looking forward to reading the final book in Nely Cab's Creatura series and I was not disappointed at all. I found that this book had the same great writing as the first 2 books and it continued the same wonderful storyline from the previous 2 books in the series as well. But I did find that the war at the end of the book was too rushed for my taste. I wish we had more details on the war and how certain supporting characters died. I felt that the

I expected this to be pretty bad, because book 2 was such a disenchantment.

Marker of Hope I feel, wasn't ready to be published. The whole book is like a manuscript, and not a particularly good one. There is tons of set-up, tons of just talking, and then bam! At 60 or 70% a plot tries to arise but barely managed to do so.

There is simply no continuity between the story of book 1 and the end of the story in this book. I was confused at times at the incongruous actions of the characters and their d

This book was greatly anticipated. I have loved this series and have been waiting to read the final installment, but at the same time not wanting it to end. Isis and David's journey has been brutal to say the least. Nely Cab isn't holding back the punches in this book either! This is a fight to the bitter end. Nothing will be easy for these two. The transformation of Isis from one book to the next is well done. She doesn't change who she is necessarily but it's more like she becomes who she's me ...more

What a perfect ending to a perfect series!
The Creatura series has to be one of my favourites now.
In this book we follow Isis as she deals with the hardest decision in her life.
I love the characters. They are those you grow to love like family.
Everything worked out in the end and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ending.
I recommend this series to anyone.

The thrilling end to a very good series. Isis’s life has gone through so many changes lately, culminating in her pregnancy and making it back home to Texas to be with her mother. Isis knows that she’s more than just a Creatura (child of a god and a human), she’s the Marker of Hope. The bringer about of change to the world the gods and goddesses live in and neither the gods and goddesses, nor the demons are happy with this and groups from both are out to get not only her, but her unborn child.

Every time I read this book I think of Twilight. Which is not really a bad thing. This was a fast paced book with no dull moment. I loved seeing all the characters grow, especially Isis. I could have done without Eros, since he really didn't contribute to the story and just showed up in the beginning and the end. Also I felt like there should be another book about Eros. The ending seemed like there is more to his story. Maybe he hooks up with Isis' daughter when she's older, like Jacob did with ...more

WOW! What an amazing conclusion to this series. I honestly had no idea how the author was going to wrap this up satisfactorily but she certainly managed to do it with a great big now on top! I love that it isn't all easy, that things, just like in real life, have far reaching consequences. This book had be both rejoicing in the successes and heartbroken when things go wrong. It is a total emotional rollercoaster but SO worth the read.

You've been warned

I really wanted to give this less stars but the characters that I adore wouldn't let me. This series did have promise but Fruits of Misfortune was in all truth a misfortune and Marker of Hope- don't get me started on that oxymoron.



Anyways, there are so many contradictions in this series I wanted to scream. Maybe it's all in my head.... if you feel the need to correct me then by all means

First, I did not read the first two books in this series, but still, didn't find it hard to grab foot into the Creatura world. Of course, there's quite a bit of information concerning the plot and characters missing, but it's not difficult to reconstruct and fall into the story. Still, to get the whole experience, it would be better to start with book one.

This is a mixture of myth, demons and magic which sets in a very modern day world with characters, which feel as if they come from the 'every

I've read the first two books in the Creatura series, and now I've finished Marker of Hope, the series finale. From the beginning of the series, I've thought she was a great character, and one that I was interested in reading about to see how her story unfolded. There were times in this last book where I wanted to talk some sense in to her, and I think that's why Galilea, who was introduced in the second book, grew on me as a character. When Isis needed it, Galilea was there to serve as a very m ...more

Is there a way I can request that we have more than five star rating? Because this book needs more than a measly five stars! Marker of Hope is beyond excellent, beyond amazing, beyond... well just about anything. I loved it, I loved it hard. This was by far the best book in the series and totally brings everything together in a perfect way. I had so many questions when I finished book two and thankfully, Nely answered every single one of them in this fantastic series finale book. I can't even be ...more

A must read. Great book. The author should either continue the series or start one with the additional character in this book. I highly recommend this series.
