This world of Creatura Nely has created is so realistic and the characters are very well written. I found the plot interesting, unique and captivating. When 17 year old Isis Martin can’t sleep because she is having nightmares of a growling beast, she finally gets fed up with not being able to sleep though the night and confronts her fear. Isis is amazed that what was causing her nightmares was not a beast but an immortal named David Chios (he’s every girls dream *Swoon.*) guarding his lands of Somnium. David tells her she must go and never come back because humans are not allowed. She tells him over and over he’s not real she’s just dreaming she dares him to prove it. When he shows up at her school and tells are who he is she has no choice but to believe that he really is real and not just a dream. Eventually, they fall in love, but it is forbidden due to her being a mortal and David being an immortal. However, David is willing to sacrifice anything to be with Isis, and he does. After Isis's mother, Claire finally reveals a secret that will help her discover the truth about her father, they go off on a journey to find the truth.
