YA & NA Fiction At It's Best - Specializing in YA

Greek Mythology Mixed With A Modern Day Love Story

Creatura - Nely Cab

First I want to thank the author, Nely Cab, for providing me a copy of her book for an honest review.


Creatura…”A fair number of unscrupulous deities used humans for their own pleasures.  They conceived half-human, half-godlike creatures..resulted in abominations.  They were evil and uncompassionate beings – savages.  …caused humans to despise gods.” 


This story has ups and downs, layers of different stories wrapped all into one, and is woven so well together that I was able to keep up with all the stories while enjoying each of them in their own right.  The author provides a quick but complex teaching of greek mythology mixed with modern day and modern man influences.  A love story with a twist at every turn of the story that you just don’t see coming and the author does it again and again.  Amazing writing.


Unfortunately, the dialogue between the characters feels a bit choppy which distracted me from the story quite often.  Also, David’s behavior just seemed a bit more off than it should have been.  This disconnected me from what was going on in the story more often than it should have, to a negative impact.  Other characters just didn’t seem to fall in streamlessly either, making it feel like a bit more needed to go into smoothing the interaction of the characters as a whole to keep the story flawless.  But I must also explain to you, this story is also one that evolves as it goes on and do not overlook it just because of those points I made.  You will find yourself craving the next page.  And the ending, well, you will have to read it to find out.


I recommend this book to anyone who likes mythology mixed in with contemporary fiction.  The material itself I would suggest to readers 14+.  And for those wondering, this is the first book in a series and you will be wishing the next one was out when you get to the end.  Nely Cab, thank you for the rollercoaster and I look forward to seeing what happens further in your Creatura world.
