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.


What to say without giving spoilers? NOCTE will mess you up. That’s a fact. Courtney Cole had to make a Facebook support group for those that had read the book because it was too much to handle. I had so many theories going into it and while reading, I kept coming up with more theories and I was close but not enough to be correct.

NOCTE messed with my head and with my heart. While reading I kept thinking, “This is something you will deal with when you become a Psychologist.” Let me tell you, it is scary. Anyway, it messed with my heart because you fall in love with each character blindly and wholehearted and then your heart gets smashed into pieces.

Then the ending…we have to wait until February to find out more and I don’t think my heart can take it. If you have never experienced a wild, roller-coaster ride of emotions, you will most likely suffer through one with NOCTE, but let me tell you, it will be the ride of your life and you will never forget it. NOCTE is one of those books that will stay in your heart forever. It is the best book I have read in 2014.
