Today for your delight (and new book discovery ease) I’m featuring the recently published Creatura by Nely Cab:
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?
The Scene where Gabe is Back
“You’re making this into a big deal,” I said. “He’s gone. There’s no point in switching cars to hide from him.”
“Isis,” Bill said, “he was talking a lot of crap before you got here. It was crazy talk, like he was high and mighty…saying he would beat the living crap out of anyone who touched you…saying you were his and that he didn’t give a flying this or that about who he’d be up against. His hands were shaky; his eyes blood shot. I’d swear he was high or something. That wasn’t the guy I knew three months ago.”
“Bill is right to be concerned,” Eryx agreed. “We don’t want any problems.”
“I’ll ride with Bill,” I said, glancing at the time on my phone. “I really have to get going.”
“No,” David said. “I’ll drive you.”
“David, be reasonable.” Eryx argued. “He’ll be persistent with her. You should avoid any further confrontations for now.”
David stared at his brother for a moment, as if assessing his words.
“We need to talk,” David said to me.
“We’ll be in the car, whenever you’re ready,” Andy said, bowing out of the conversation.
Galen spoke first.
“The reason we’re taking these measures is because we have to abide by the laws; we’re not allowed to physically harm any mortal, something that’s hard to avoid in a state of anger. We’d be prohibited from entering this world for many centuries. And that’s not something I’m willing to risk.”
“Oh,” I said, remembering when David had told me about their laws. “But I doubt he’ll come looking for David. I’ll put a stop to this.”
“You’re overconfident,” Galen said. “That toddler just had a severe tantrum. Do you really think he’ll just give up?”
This was the reason why I was keeping myself from falling for David. I was afraid the day would come when he’d disappear from my life forever. I was afraid of being hurt. I wouldn’t be able to bear it.
Without saying more, the twins slid into the Maserati and revved the engine while waiting for David to start the Land Rover. David ignored the signal and walked me to Bill’s car.
“Don’t call him,” David urged me. “Don’t deal with him at all.”
