Creatura Blog Tour

Today on my  blog I have the Creatura blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, guest post, review, excerpt, and giveaway (that I wish I could enter. lol!).

Nely Cab was born on December 9, 1974, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She has lived and resided in South Texas most of her life. In 2001, the author relocated to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, where she dedicated time to the study of culinary arts and the art of oil painting.

After her return to the U.S., she resumed her employment in banking and in the following year transitioned to the field of Social Work. Later, Nely took up writing as a hobby and produced her first novel entitled "Creatura".

Last year, the rights to "Creatura" were sold to a leading Young Adult publisher in a foreign country, where it has just recently been released.

Today, Nely Cab writes from the comfort of her home in South Texas, where she lives with her husband and son. Currently, Nely is working on the second installment in her debut series "Creatura".

Stalker Links:

Isis can control her dreams. Or she could—until recently. The creature in her nightmares has been haunting her for months. As if being dumped wasn’t bad enough, now she dreads going to sleep. She decides to confront the creature and win back some of her peace; only, she finds that he’s not a monster and he’s not a dream.
A sacrifice for love, a shocking discovery and a jealous ex-boyfriend blur the lines between reality and dreams, making it hard to tell who the real monsters are.
Who would’ve known…that sometimes love is lethal?

At the entrance to the school, I found David sitting on a red brick bench, waiting for me.
“Morning,” I said, looking away for a second as I wiped the girlish grin from my face. I was remembering last night’s kiss.
“Good morning.”
He opened the glass doors for me, then took my hand and asked me to follow him to a semi-empty area across from the glass doors and windows. He gave me a gentle push and my back touched the wall. He leaned close and placed his finger on my lips. His touch sent tiny electrical shocks through every fiber of my body.
“I crave your lips. Give me but one taste and I’ll ask no more.”
I shook my head turned away, but he turned it back so that I was looking straight into his eyes.
“Why do you insist on this?” I asked.
“Why else would I crave your lips if I didn’t already know the sweet nectar that they possess?”
“No,” I said, shutting my eyes to keep from starring into his mesmerizing blue gaze. “It’s forbidden.”
“It’s as forbidden as the illicit fruit of Hades, but even he has eaten from it.”

Guest Post:
Every night she comes here. I don’t understand why she wanders about in the meadow by herself. She never goes beyond the stream. She stares at the sunset as if expecting answers. I doubt those answers will ever come to her here.
I heard her voice once; it’s sweet and delicate like the nightingales’ songs that I would listen to when I was a young boy. Then, I wasn’t tiptoeing around girls like I do with this one. Why I do it, I have no idea. Is this what they would consider a stocker nowadays? I feel a bit wrong about it—about spying—but every time I convince myself to confront her, I shy away from it, fearing that she may never return. Yet here I am, watching her from afar as I did last night and the night before that one.
I don’t understand why I’m so afraid of never seeing her again. It’s not like I know her. She doesn’t even know that I exist.
I wonder so many things about her. Maybe I should dwell further into her dreams and find out about her life, her interests…her friends. Or I could simply follow her back to wherever she’s from. That wouldn’t be so wrong, would it? But then I really would be a stalker and my mother would have a fit. Why did I ever tell Mother about the girl in the meadow?
Mother wants me to frighten her away, and though I know it’s the right thing to do, I’m hesitant. It’s only been a few months that she’s been coming here, but it seems like eternity since I’ve wanted to speak to her. I should confront her now.
Then again, what’s one more night? There’s always tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow I’ll lure her away…or maybe the day after that. But as for tonight, I’ll surrender my realm to her. 

With this book being re-released I got the chance to read it all over again and I am so excited that I was able to. There are some new things added to the story line that only make it flow so much better. If you thought Creatura was amazing before get ready cause now it’s even better and it will have you falling in love with David, I mean completely head over heels wondering why there are no men out there like him. So get ready to be glued to this book the whole time forgetting everything around you and getting so wrapped up in a magical world that you wish you could jump into.   

Isis is a seventeen year old girl who is having trouble sleeping and having terrifying nightmares that have her staying up all night. But one night she decides to confront the beast in her dream and what happens next shocks her down to her core. He turns into a man and tells her she is not supposed to be here. No humans are allowed.  Isis tells him that this is her dream and he is not real. David than tells her that he is indeed real. Isis tells him to prove it. A dare David accepts.

I fell in love with David right from the start. He is so sweet, smart, loving, protective, and the poems he writes left me swooning and giddy just like a teenage girl. Isis is everything I love about in a heroine. She is smart, strong, and so stubborn. I could see a lot of myself in her which made is very easy to connect with her. Their love story is sweet and paced just right.

The cliff hanger we are left with at the end of the book had me screaming. I couldn’t believe Nely left the book that way. I really need book two now just like a lot of other readers. So please Nely hurry up and take us out of misery.

Creatura is a magical book that will leave you breathless and thinking about it days after you are done. Nely writes deities with a new spin and a romance that is swoon worthy. It will leave you falling in love with David and wanting him all to yourself. This has become one of my best re-reads of 2013 and I hope you will run out and buy it for yourself so you can see for yourself just how amazing Creatura is. 
10/10 Bloody Fangs
