Fruit of Misfortune (Creatura #2) by Nely Cab
Isis’ goals for the future included things like attending and graduating college. However, becoming a monster wasn’t part of the plan. Isis and her boyfriend, David, are on the brink of a horrible transformation and they are eager to stop it. Together, they set out on a quest to Greece to find Isis’ biological father—the only person that may be able to help them. Their journey comes to an abrupt stop before it even begins when Isis falls ill, and Eros, David’s best friend, arrives in Athens, unannounced and curious…with a plan of his own.
The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.
I started the Creatura series last year because it was a recommendation from booktuber I follow. I read the synopsis and realized it was about mythology and since I love stuff like that I gave it a go. Creatura was really good and I knew I had to get the other books in the series as soon as they were released. Later on that year the second book in the Creatura series, Fruit of Misfortune came out and I got it right away, I was planning on reading it especially after I read the cliffhanger ending from the first book but then I heard that Fruit of Misfortune had a cliffhanger ending that was heartbreaking and I held off until I was able to get the final book, Marker of Hope.
Fruit of Misfortune was so good. We still dealing with mythology but now also some science behind the mythology and we are also dealing with prophecy and destines. Isis is still the same girl she was in the first book. I always saw her as a real world girl that was dropped in a ya novel. She is impulsive, doesn’t connect certain things, reckless, has a bad temper and she keeps making mistakes, she seems more like a real girl rather than a ya heroine. As for David, we get to see a totally different side to his personality and it shows that he is far from perfect. Old and new characters join in this adventure and one of the character (even though I don’t like him) makes some valid points when it comes to David and Isis relationship, which is on the rocks by the way.
The plot is a interesting and new and that is a good thing to come across but that ending damned near killed me and I hope Nely fixed things because if not I will be burning this entire book series.
Overall 4 stars
Fruits of Misfortune had action, mystery, romance, deceit, betrayal, love, heartbreak and more. I am looking forward to the last book in this series, I am looking forward to Marker of Hope.
