LET THERE BE LIGHT.
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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Lux is the final book in the Nocte trilogy! I loved Nocte, Verum and Initium a lot! The mind-fuck I went through each one was crazy yet amazing because I was close to losing my mind. You think Never Never by Colleen Hoover had a cliff-hanger? Then you do not know what a cliff-hanger is. I always say that Nocte was the series that helped me suspect everyone in a book where mystery exists so it’s no surprise that Never Never was predictable to me. The Nocte trilogy kept me guessing from every angle. I couldn’t pin-point what happened, who had done what, just everything!
Lux was a major mind-fuck. I was so confused through at least 76% of the book and I was sure I was going to send my medical psychiatric bill to Courtney but
sadly, that wasn’t the case. I was expecting for the ultimate twist to the story, what everyone has been hiding, to have a psychological aspect to it like the rest of the story, right? I mean, wouldn’t you? This book had another aspect that played a part and I feel betrayed because the previous books didn’t have this aspect and all of a sudden, bam! Here you go! I felt like someone played with my emotions. I really wasn’t expecting the route this book ended up in. I do have to admit it was very creative from Courtney’s part.
“We’re all a bit mad, aren’t we?”
Other than that, the characters are so complex which made the story all the more exciting! Don’t even try to find logic in the story nor in them. You could go insane if you try. The writing of the story is definitely dark yet beautiful and poetic-like. I’m giving this 3.5 stars because I highly enjoyed everything until 76%. I really hope you guys read this series though because it is worth it. You will go down the rabbit hole and will try to make sense of things. Here is a warning: don’t even try.
Don’t forget to read where it all started! Nocte and Verum are currently on sale for .99 cents!
