[Series Review] The Nocte Trilogy by Courtney Cole *NO SPOILERS*


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.

The truth shall set you free.

My name is Calla Price and I’m drowning.

My new world is a dark, dark ocean and I’m being pulled under by secrets.

Can I trust anyone? I don’t know anymore.

The lies are spirals. They twist and turn, binding me with their thorns and serpentine tongues. And just when I think I have it figured out, everything is pulled out from under me.
I’m entangled in the darkness.
But the truth will set me free.
It’s just ahead of me, so close I can touch it. But even though it shines and glimmers, it has glistening fangs and I know it will shred me.

Are you scared?
I am.


My name is Calla Price and I’m broken. 

My pieces are all around me, floating on the wind, even as I desperately try to grasp them. 
Who is dead? Alive? Insane?
What is the truth?
I don’t know. 

I do know this: The darkness is strangling me. With every breath, I choke on another lie. 
My mind has protected me, but that shield will soon be lowered. 

All will be revealed. 
Every answer to every question. 

It’s all been leading to this. 

Don’t be afraid. 
Be terrified


"Who is dead? Alive? Insane?

What is the truth?
I don't know."

Where do I begin? Where do I freaking begin????

I am crying.
I am in shock. 
And I don't know what to believe anymore.
This series has shaken me to my core. 

It's confusing, it's twisted, it's dark, and it's scary. 

I can't put into words of how moved  I am by this series but this series needs more, deserves more, recognition. This book was so well done, the twists and the revelations, my god, I need a moment to think it through because I at a loss of words. 

You have Calla, Finn, and Dare, trapped, trying discover what is real and what is not real. No one knows the truth till the very end. 

This series will be hard to read, it will be hard to understand, but just keep reading. Trust me, it will make sense. Or will it? I am trying to fathom how the author wrote such a complex, dark, twisted, stunning series. But I will continue staring at my laptop trying to comprehend it all.

You guys need to read this series.

If you want to checkout some artwork in regards to this series, follow this link here to the twitter user, @phantomrim9 because the artwork beautifully captures this series. Honestly, this artwork got me interested in the series. I had no idea this series existed before seeing this artwork. 

Overall I would give this entire series, The Nocte Trilogy, 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
