Review: Nocte (Nocte Trilogy 1) by Courtney Cole

Credit: Goodreads

5 Stars

My name is Calla Price. I'm eighteen years old, and I'm one half of a whole. My other half-- my twin brother, my Finn-- is crazy. I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I'm terrified he'll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me. I'm doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I'm drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. Dare DuBray. He's my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I'm afraid, where I belong, where I'm lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. He has the power to destroy me. Maybe that's ok. Because I can't seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. Why? Because of a secret. A secret I'm so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. You won't either.

My Thoughts: When I finished this book last night I thought about all of the things I wanted to say. All of the things I was feeling. But as I turned to the author note at the back I decided to just write a short review with not much detail. 

I could bleed my heart and soul into this review. I could let the tears I am trying to pretend aren't in my eyes at this very moment, spill onto my keyboard, but I won't. What I will do is tell you this....

This book hit me on such a deep personal level. In the end I was not thinking as much about the book characters and what was happening to them, I was thinking about how their story was affecting ME. How even though I had pretty much figured out what was happening I still couldn't handle it once it was revealed. It is always hard when you see things you have thought, things you have felt, poured onto the page of a truly captivating story. I can't say that this book will affect everyone the way it did me. But the link between things that have happened in my life and the things Calla is experiencing throughout this book are so so close to home. What I can tell you is that if you read this book, you will grieve, you will fall in love and you most definitely will want the second book. 

I have my theories about what I believe will be revealed in book two. And I am pretty confident that I am correct. I apologize for my review being so vague, but I do agree with the author, you need to experience this book firsthand.
