First I want to start by thanking Cab for providing an ARC of Creatura for me to read and review. I wasn't really convinced on the concept of the book but decided to give the book a try and I must say the book was a interesting read.

Seventeen year old Isis hasn't been able to sleep since the day she meets the creature that lurks in the land she visits. She is terrified of encountering the monster, which makes her try everything to stay awake. When she decides to confront the "creature" that haunts her "nightmares" she realizes that he is quite the opposite of a monster.  And with him comes a whole new look into the world Isis has been living in. A world where human and Deity are forbidden from interacting and where children born out of both are called Creatura and killed.

Although David knows that it is forbidden to communicate with humans he cannot stay away from Isis. When she hands out a dare for him to show he is real he jumps at the chance. But what he doesn't realize is how much more he would want her once he met her outside of her dreams. And what ensues is a sweet romance between him and Isis. A romance that has to remain hidden at all cost.

But their forbidden romance isn't the only danger they face. Not only are they hiding their feelings, but Isis is being stalked by an old ex that refuses to let go. And to top if off they also realize that Isis is much more than what they think. There is a reason why she can pass into the world David lives in. The problem is that without knowing who her father is nothing is for sure.

While Creatura is an interesting read I did find that it would appeal more to a younger audience than to an older audience like me. I found it difficult to connect with the characters and was a bit flustered with the many plotlines mixed into the story and the rush of events that just didn't add to the story.

Even though I wasn't wowed with this story it is filled with many twist and turns and a sweet romance which makes Creatura a good read for young adults.

I will check out any future books from the author and encourage the YA readers to check out this story!
