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?

***#NerdGirlSara’s Review***

How do I even begin to count the way that I loved this book? Ugh, oh my God. It was my ideal YA read.

The beautiful cover with the golden script and the muted girl with glowing green eyes. It was instalove. You can sometimes judge a book by it’s cover because the contents were just as amazing.

I had originally thought from the blurb and the main character’s name (Isis) that there would be an Egyptian mythology flavor to this young adult but it had a beautiful mythology all its own taking from many different cultures.

Isis was a perfect mix of intelligence and albeit naive thinking, she was a very believable teenager. I loved how she didn’t fall into instant infatuation with David, she made that gorgeous boy work for her heart and she had his well-being in mind rather than her own selfush desires. It was a welcome reprieve from other young adult novels. David was a very honorable hero, he definitely won my heart before he won over Isis’!

Creatura ended on such a cliffhanger! I’m dying for the next one!
