Upon her return from Greece with three new friends and a broken heart, Isis' hunger for human flesh is stronger than ever. She's a miserable mess after losing David following her betrayal. Her mutation into Creatura is all but over when she receives the surprise of her life, compelling her to seek out David's family. Only, they've broken all ties with her, and she doesn't know how to reach them.
Turpis, the demonic beings that attacked Isis in Greece, have tracked her whereabouts. Now, in order to fend for her life, Isis must join forces with deities she doesn't trust.
Is Isis truly the Marker of Hope as she's believed to be, or will she lose the battle to her starving inner beast and demons, obliterating humankind from existence? Find out in the epic finale of the best-selling CREATURA SERIES.
I've read the first two books in the Creatura series, and now I've finished Marker of Hope, the series finale. From the beginning of the series, I've thought she was a great character, and one that I was interested in reading about to see how her story unfolded. There were times in this last book where I wanted to talk some sense in to her, and I think that's why Galilea, who was introduced in the second book, grew on me as a character. When Isis needed it, Galilea was there to serve as a very much needed voice of reason. And Eros? Let's just say that in some way, I think he redeemed himself in the way I saw him. Not going to say much more on that, other than the fact there were numerous times in the preceding books and at the beginning of Marker of Hope that I wanted to slap him.
As far as the book, I think there were some great lines of dialogue, and that was one of my favorite aspects of Marker of Hope. There were a couple of times when I laughed out loud. Now that I've had time to think about the book, there's one thing I picked up on. I felt the last 10% of the book or so felt a little rushed, but that was a minor thing. The most important part of was it showed how Isis changed from the first book, though the second, and where she ended up in the third.
Overall, I enjoyed Marker of Hope. I'm sad that this is the conclusion to the series, because there were plot elements that I'd love to see unfold and developed further, but were only mentioned in dialogue. My rating is 5/5 platypires.
