The dramatic series finale to Courtney Cole's bestselling Nocte trilogy!


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.


I have never had a series draw me in like The Nocte series. It demanded to be read and it demanded to be read from the very first book till the very last, it captured all my attention and had my heart and mind on the line the entire time.  It was a wild, exciting, thrilling, dangerous ride and I loved every minute of it!

It made absolutely no sense at all and made perfect sense all at the same time...which doesn't make any sense, but in itself, makes perfect sense.  The  exquisite intricacy of the layers upon layers in this story is uncanny, unlike anything I've read.  Trying to guess at what happens next will only leave you feeling empty and hollow, until Lux.  Until we get the conclusion, all the answers that we were seeking.  You have one question left, Ask it. What IS the secret?

I am in Awe of Miss Cole on keeping the timeline straight, I don't how she did it without loosing her sanity while doing it, but it all makes sense. It all falls together and we finally get all those missing pieces of the puzzle. It will all make perfect sense.

I'm just going to throw this out there right now, Miss Cole, I LOVED the Authors note at the end and you have a new fan.  Thank you!  I can't even begin to describe all the emotions that Calla, Dare and Finn's story has brought forth.  Well done!

This may well be one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write.  The complexity of the story deserves to be experiences first hand.  And if you have read the first 2 books and Novella, then you definitely don't want to miss this epic conclusion. If you haven't read Nocte and Verum yet, stop right here. Don't read any further and go get them, you may find spoilers in this review. 

**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.

The terrifying tale continues, what is real?  Does Calla know? Does Dare or Finn?  Does anyone?  We have seen the story unfold many, many ways around Calla, Dare and Finn and now, THE END IS COMING.   THE END IS COMING.  THE END IS COMING.

Calla knows what is truth, she just can't seem to remember.  Her memory still comes in flashes.  She has to find the truth, the truth of Dare's secret.  Her heart is afraid, its telling her to be afraid of Dare.  She doesn't understand why, but she must find out.  She must find out his secret, she remembers him telling her that he did a terrible thing.  When she finds out, will she see him as the monster he thinks he is?

She sees flashes of fire, of smoke, of falling, of water, of Dare with his shirt all bloody. It doesn't make sense, but it will.  She must go back to Whitley and find all the answers.  The answers that her mind knows, the answers that she must accept and come to terms with.  And she must choose.  She has a choice to make and only she can make it. She must make the right choice.

Calla is lost, she is unsure of where to start.  She confides this to Finn.  He tells her when he feels lost, he re-traces his steps.  He tells her to not be fooled, and to search for the truth no matter how much pain she thinks it cause her.  She must start at the beginning.

The beginning.
The beginning.
I need to start.

Join Calla on this journey in finding the truth, finding out all the secrets.  The last secret she must know, the secret that could change everything for her.  The secret that could change it for them all.  Will she remember?

**“But I won’t remember,” I tell him. “When I change things and I wake up, I never remember. What if I forget you?”
 “Then I’ll find you, Calla-Lily. I’ll always find you.”

**“Nocte liber sum,” I whisper to Dare.
He nods. “Keep dreaming, Calla Lily. And one day, we’ll be free.”
