Save me and I'll save you...

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.
I'm utterly speachless. Shocked to the core, full of emotions. I want to scream and cry and laugh hysterically. Rocking back and forth in a dark corner ... it's too much to handle. I seriously don't know what to do with myself right now. I haven't read anything else by Courtney Cole before but now after finishing NOCTE I consider doing it. Her writing style is great and I loved how she described everything, she used Latin words, her characters are amazing, the story is unique and so, so captivating and fascinating. I could fangirl some more but I guess you get the idea!

I don't want to say too much and if I'm honest I don't really know what to write. NOCTE is a book you have to read without knowing too much. It's dark, twisted, mysterious and at times confusing ... but in a good way! You'll be frustrated, heartbroken and terrified but it's so worth it, believe me.

Calla is a great character! You experience the whole story out of her POV and gladly she doesn't even annoy you - at least I wasn't annoyed. Her actions were all plausible and I guess in these situations I would have reacted the same ... or maybe not. I don't think I'd be that strong. She had to go through so many hard times and I admire her a lot. She's amazing!

"I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day."

Dare DuBray. Oh lord. Let me swoon and sob in his arms because he's so perfect. I instantly liked him and was drawn to him even though he's mysterious and has secrets. Everyone has secrets, right? He's frustrating and confusing but you can't get away from him. Not only because he's handsome and beautiful but also because he's the one thing that keeps you sane when everything around you gets crazy. I just loved him a lot. Most of the times I also wanted to punch him but then again hug him tight. It was very emotional.

"It's like I'm a planet and he's my axis ... or my sun."

I'm not going to say anything else about the rest ... just discover it on your own! The story is absolutely perfect. I couldn't get enough of it and now I'm desperately waiting for the second book. The last few chapters ripped my heart to pieces. Tears streaming down my face, my heart was throbbing so hard, I thought it's going to explode any second and then ... it ends. Just nope, no, no, no, no. I can't wait till February for the second book. I NEED IT NOW! 100% recommend ... just give it a try, it's worth a read! :)

Also I'm desperate to discuss everything. Especially the end. If you read the book and understand what I'm going through right now, oh my god, just please talk to me. I need someone. Serva me, servabo te. Save me and I will save you. Save me. Save me. Save me and I will save you.
