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 a turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.
I loved reading Fruit of Misfortune by Nely Cab. Isis and David have been a favorite of mine since the reading Creatura, the first book in the series. Cab does an excellent job building her characters, giving them depth, and adding in wonderful surprises around each corner. The witty dialogue, extensive character development, and fun plot (who doesn’t love mythology?) are a yummy recipe for an awesome story.
I appreciate the realism Cab includes in Isis and David’s relationship, allowing them to grow and adjust to each other, but remaining true to themselves as well. The visuals in this book made me feel as though I could see through each of the character’s eyes. Eros is a character who grows on you one minute and then disgusts you the next. Despite their not being human, each character possesses wonderful human qualities that makes them relatable and magnetic for the reader.
Overall, another job well done for Nely Cab. I look forward to reading and reviewing the next in the Creatura series. Maybe I can have my husband take some poetry lessons from David in the interim!
