New Release TODAY! NOCTE by Courtney Cole: Blog Tour & ARC Book Review

3 Nov 2014

Everyone has secrets. 

Today, you find out mine.

NOCTE is here. 

Get it: Amazon - iBooks - B&N - Kobo 


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.

4.5 NOCTE STARS! ★★★★☆

  "There is nothing quite so terrifying as the descension of the human mind into insanity" - Calla Price

Well holy cannolis. WHAT DID I JUST READ. I mean, whaa-


I've never read anything from Courtney Cole before but then I saw the pretty cover, that amazing blurb and that author's note. I JUST HAD TO HAVE IT. And boy what a crazy ride it was as my mind is still trying to digest what. just. happened. I feel like I need to re-read this to grasp around the entire idea.


So the thing about this book: I'm not even allowed to divulge details of the plot at all and I agree that it should be kept that way because going in blind is the best way to enjoy this read. The story is beautifully complex and the author managed to weave all the minor details throughout the book so cleverly into something huge and twisted later on. It's completely enthralling and will make you want to devour this book in one sitting, trust me.
"Secrets. Everybody's got 'em." - Dare DuBray

There's also that fantastic dynamic between Calla, her twin brother, Finn and her love interest, Dare which keeps you on your toes as you try to piece the entire puzzle. Also I wouldn't deem this book to be really dark but there is a certain eerie and hauntingly beautiful feel to this read that grips you throughout.

Unpredictable and completely unputdownable, Nocte is definitely one of those books that will send your mind into a tailspin. Honestly this read would make a good BR material because it's one that you would want to vent your feelings out as you read along.

A fair warning would be that this is NOT a standalone and is part of a trilogy. That cliffhanger there? Yeah it's one of those that makes you wanna hunt down the author and force her to write the next one ASAP (please Courtney, pleaaasee). But here's the thing though, I'm actually glad it's not a standalone because there's no way that an idea as bizarre as this could be wrapped up in one book alone. I would have been pissed off if it was wrapped up too quickly!

So would I recommend you to read this? I believe this book is just the beginning of an even more complex premise that has yet to come. If you can deal with cliffies, by all means, go ahead and strap on for one cray cray ride. You wouldn't want to miss out on this ;)

NOCTE is released on November 3rd, 2014.
