Initium is a short, intriguing addition to the Nocte Trilogy that takes us back to the beginning. Before Calla, Finn, and Dare there was Olivia, Phillip, Laura, Eleanor, and Richard. This short novella was equal parts torturous and surprisingly satisfying, fulfilling a need I didn’t even know I had by allowing me a glimpse into the relationships that set the events of this series in motion. Courtney Cole begins to unravel the mysterious dynamic between Olivia and Laura, while examining Olivia’s love for Phillip and her marriage to Richard. The darkness seeped into this story though Courtney Cole’s haunting words and the unsettling visions her prose conjured in my mind as I read. If possible, I feel more unsettled than ever before. While I’m expectedly left with more questions than answers, I feel like I’m on the cusp of uncovering something big.

Somewhere at the edge of consciousness, countless theories flit through my mind as I watch the past unfold in Initium. Strange details and familiar words began to connect the events of this novella with Calla’s story. I find myself happily resigned to waiting out the storm, excited to see how this emotionally intense journey finally comes together. Initium was a fantastic way to bridge the gap between the first two books in the trilogy and the last, while also revealing more of the complicated family history that seems to be so important to understanding what is real. Courtney Cole gave readers a chance to travel back to the origin of all the lies and as a result, I’m more eager than ever to discover the truth. Bring on Lux!

Initium just confirmed for me why I've been so unbelievably anxious for the final book in the Nocte trilogy. Each dark and twisted installment unearths more clues, more secrets from the past, raises more questions and grips me from beginning to end. This story takes things back, twenty years before we were first introduced to Dair and Calla... to where their fates converged before they were even born. It answers so many questions left from Nocte and Verum and raises SO many more. Courtney Cole's writing is beautiful, so so stunning. I've loved her NA romances, but this series has impressed me beyond measure. Cole's ability to weave together a captivating story of mystery and intrigue, love and lunacy, treachery and deceit surrounding such thoroughly well-developed, yet utterly mysterious characters, and illustrated superbly with lyrical prose and perfectly authentic dialogue has floored me yet again. This novella is another mind-bending, insanely addictive, wickedly evocative piece of the puzzle that is the Nocte trilogy!!

The main character in this book is Olivia, Dare’s mom. So what we’re reading is a prequel, instead of a continuation of Dare and Calla’s story. And this story is a movement from sanity down into the abyss. Throw some mysticism in there and you have a completely different take on the entire story line. So NOW I have to go and re-read all the books with this new knowledge(?) and see if it helps to clear anything up. Beyond that, I cannot, nor will not give anything else away. It doesn’t give away the story…maybe? At least not up to this point? I know so many questions….

Ms. Cole still has me twisted in knots not knowing what is what. I know that this is by far one of the best series I’ve read this year. And I’m beyond anxious for next month when Lux comes out. So would I recommend this short? Yes I would. I would recommend this whole series. But for those who can’t do cliffhangers…DO NOT PEEP AT THESE BOOKS UNTIL AFTER YOU BUY LUX! That’s my word of warning.

Crazy crazy ride and while some things were answered, this added more questions more than anything! I loved the first few chapters of Lux though and can't wait to get my hands on it. It has been a long journey for this crazy messed up series!

Just wow. I am thrilled to have this novella. As someone who doesn't necessarily figure things out easily when it comes to these kinds of stories, Initium has hopefully started me on the track to finally figuring out what this is truly all about.

We get a bit of history, 21 years prior to what is happening now to Calla, and it is exhilarating!! I had forgotten just how wild a ride the Nocte series has been and this pleasant surprise has me all geared up and ready for Lux. There's even a couple of chapters of the last book to whet everyone's appetite.

I strongly encourage you start at the beginning with Nocte and experience this journey for yourself. It is more than worth your time.

The Nocte series is one of the most confusing, addicting, mind-numbing, thrilling series I've ever read and I don't think there will ever be another series that will be able to compare/compete with it in my mind.

Initium is as well written as the two previous books and is filled with just as much crazy brain scrambling details but adds insight into some background that I hope will piece some of the jumbled puzzle together in Lux which I NEED NOW!!

Even though with each book I feel like I'm more crazy then the characters (or author), I can't get enough of the story and am highly anticipating the release of Lux!!
