From the Author

Dear Reader, 
I'd like to ask you a personal favor.  I hope you love NOCTE.  I hope that when you love it, you want to tell everyone about it.  I hope you write a review, because reviews are so important to an author, just like word-of-mouth recommendations.  
My favor is this, though:  When you tell your friends, when you write your review, can you please avoid spoilers?  Please?  Part of the reading experience of NOCTE is not knowing what is coming.  I'd like for everyone to have that, if possible.  Thank you so much.  I am eternally grateful. 
Thank you for helping me PROTECT THE SECRET. 
With gratitude,

“Do you know what it’s like to not be able to change something?”

How do you even beginning reviewing a book that left you utterly speechless? This fascinating, astonishing, gripping story completely mesmerised me, stealing my mind away from the very first sentence and bewitching it with a reality that kept me questioning everything in it. Including my own mind. Unlike anything I have ever read before—from its atmospheric setting and the level of detail in every single scene, to the meticulous pace and unexpected points of view—this phenomenal book quite literally consumed me cover to cover. I felt mentally ‘stranded’ at the end of it, unable to return to normal life and stop thinking about all that unfolded, and you know what? I absolutely adored every mind-wrecking moment of it.

“…it should’ve been me in the first place. Finn is a better person than I am… Finn really is better. He’s funny and witty and smart, and his soul is as gentle as they come. He’s the one who deserved to be healthy. Not me. I’m the snarky, sarcastic one.”

Calla Price is an eighteen-year-old girl from a small coastal town, whose unusual childhood of being raised in a funeral home has made her the target of constant mockery and ostracism by other kids of her age. But nothing in her young life has touched her as deeply and as permanently as growing up with a twin brother whose mental disorder has forced her to act as his protector ever since he first started hearing violent voices in his head as a small child.

Spell-binding. Haunting. Tainted with madness, and jam packed with mystery. These are just a few of the words that come to mind as I sit down to write my review on Nocte. Courtney Cole is a genius, her writing style is fluid, her imagery and descriptiveness are well beyond anything I’ve ever read. There is just something about the way she pieces together phrases and words that just give it that cutting edge of brilliance. I had a feeling of excitement while reading this book, excited for myself for experiencing it and excited to witness it fireball its way through the book world - taking readers by storm. The plot, the characters, the insanity, the sheer thrill - all are things that will keep you on the edge of your own sanity until you have devoured this book.

Death strips a person of dignity, but I don’t have to be the one holding the filet knife

Calla Price is a tormented girl. Growing up in a funeral home hasn’t been the most flourishing of environments for herself and her twin brother, Finn. Feeling the ridicule from their peers and struggling to face her brother’s mental illness takes a toll on her, more than she is willing to admit. When tragedy strikes their family, the grief and guilt threatens to sink her, to suck her down into the black abyss. Watching her struggle through such a staggering loss, I truly felt the emotions that she was going through. Her determination to carry on, her fierce need to protect her brother from his own evils, that was what I loved most about her. Characters like that are simply unforgettable, they become a part of you in a very real way. When a mysterious stranger enters her life, will she be able to explore the feelings he brings out in her? Or will her responsibilities force her to turn her back on what could be?

I have to be honest here: I have no idea how to review this book without giving away everything that makes it nothing short of fantastic. I absolutely refuse to spoil one single second of this story, so expect a short "OMG BUY THIS BOOK" type of review.

From the first page, Nocte will grab you, sink in its claws and hold on tight until the very last word, when you're left gasping for breath and desperately wanting more. Seriously, I kept trying to flip pages on my iPad, knowing that couldn't be it. There had to be more. Yes, there is a cliffhanger... and it's a doozie. Consider yourself warned.

This book is beautifully-written and a glorious mindfu¢k. I've read (and LOVED) quite a few dark romance novels, but none of them have ever been quite like this. The underlying mystery unravels slowly and organically, page by page, as the story goes on. When it's time for you to read this book, make sure you clear your schedule. You won't want to put it down once you've started.

With complex characters, sexy romance, a great mystery and more twists and turns than you can wrap your head around, Courtney Cole knocked it out of the park with Nocte. I've been a fan of Courtney's new adult books for quite awhile now. But now? Now I want more books just like this one. There's still a little over a month to go in 2014, but there's a pretty good chance Nocte will wind up on my best of 2014 list. Verum, the second book in the Nocte Trilogy, is at the top of my "must have" list for winter 2015. But, it's going to be a long, painful wait until February...

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
