Release Day Blitz & Review
(Nocte #3)

Courtney Cole
 ~ Synopsis ~
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.

~ Excerpt ~
I’m in a darker place, and my brother is there. His eyes are dark and murky, without whites, and I realize that he’s an embryo, and I’m an embryo and we haven’t been born yet. I reach out my webbed fingers and touch his face through the liquid, through the fluid, and he’s my brother. Although he doesn’t have hair yet, I know it. I feel him, I feel his heart. 

He looks at me through the dark, and just as if he were speaking, I hear a voice. It’s him, it’s my brother, it’s Finn.

Save me and I’ll save you. 

He is loud, and quiet, and everywhere, and nowhere.

Something is troubling him, and I feel it in my bones, so I nestle closer to take it, to absorb it, because I can’t let anything happen to him, not ever. I failed him once, and I’ll never fail him again.

He brings me comfort and I bring him comfort and that’s the way we’ll always be. 

I feel his skin. I feel his heart beating against me. 
I feel our cells splitting as we grow, as we develop, as we become beings.
Save me, and I’ll save you. 
Yes, I will. 
I will. 

I awaken with a start, and the light is pouring into my bedroom window. 

The bedding is pulled up to my chin and I untangle one hand, staring at it. My fingers are no longer webbed. My fingers are separate and long. I wiggle them in the light. 

It was a dream.

It was a dream.

My thoughts are muddled though. It’s hard to focus and something moves in the corner. Something with dark eyes. It stares at me for a moment, then it’s gone, and I remember Finn’s scream. 

“The demon is here, Calla!”

~ Review ~
I truly loved this series. The fact that Courtney Cole made me question my sanity made this book so enjoyable. Just when you thought you knew what was going on there would be another plot twist. I fell in love with Finn, Calla and Dare so I was completely vested in how things would turn out for these characters.  

How does one review a book that twisted everything you thought you knew and made you question it? One that took to the edge time and time again only to pull you back at the last minute?  Carefully, so as not to give away any of the secrets you will uncover when you read LUX and get the answers that you have been searching for since you took that first step and jumped down the rabbit hole.  Don’t try to rush it….read it, enjoy it, feel it!  The story is like a perfectly laid out jig saw puzzle.  Each piece will eventually find its place and the journey will be worth the end result.

This is not the type of series I usually read, but Courtney captured my eye with the covers to the books in this series and she had me intrigued with the first synopsis.  There was no way that I couldn’t finish this series.  I needed to know who was insane? At times I thought Courtney might be or even myself.  What was real and what was imagined? What really happened the night that Calla & Finn’s mom died? Would Calla and Dare end up together?

Don’t look for answers here….they are found in LUX which you most definitely should purchase and climb your way back out of the rabbit hole….if you dare!
