Nocte by Courtney Cole Review

Nocte by Courtney Cole


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.  



Dear Reader, 

I once considered not writing this story. It was too dark, too twisted, too much, too, too, too.  

Obviously, I changed my mind. But I re-wrote it in four different ways first, trying to make it different, more easily palatable, softer.  

It didn’t work. 

So I went back to my original idea, the idea that I loved. The idea that I dreamed about and lived and breathed until it was done the way I wanted it, the way it has to be.  

I know you’re capable of reading it. I know you’re capable of putting yourselves back together again when it’s all over. I have faith in you. 

Is this story dark? 

It is twisted?  
At times. 

Will it slap you in the face? 

Will it have you flipping the pages, trying to figure it out, trying to get to the climax, trying to breathe? 
God, I hope so.  

I wrote this story the way it needed to be written. I couldn’t sugarcoat it. I couldn’t water it down. It is this way because the story demands it.  

I’m not sorry.  


I was told to just go in blind! And I did... My heart and brain emerged at the end of this book completely minced. I stalked the author, joined the group and waited very impatiently for the second instalment.

Twins, one is mentally ill and unstable, a bad boy British love interest with a motor cycle. This book has every single thing I look for in a book, a little light, a little dark a LOT of feels that will leave you wrecked and most of all characters that will stay in your heart and mind long after the book is closed.

Courtney Cole hit this one right out of the park for me and if I could give it way more than five I would. 

Don't read anything about it... just dive in..blind and ready for the most amazing mind twisting tale I have read in a long time.
