NOCTE (The Nocte Trilogy Book 1)

NOCTE (The Nocte Trilogy Book 1) - Courtney Cole I really love Courtney Cole. I have said this before, in my other reviews of other books by her that I have read, but it does not get less true, so I will keep saying it. Cole is brilliant at writing sexy male leads and female leads who are so relatable and wonderful that they will break your heart. Her books keep you moving and guessing until the very end, and they are enjoyable from cover to cover. If you aren't yet familiar with her as an author, I suggest you remedy that right now, especially if you are into YA Romance (I have not read any of her novels for adults, but I'm sure those are fabulous as well!).

Now, with regard to Nocte specifically: this book is a brilliant and incredible roller coaster ride from beginning to end. I was hooked from the very first page, and I just finished it and my head is still spinning. There is not a terrible amount I can say without spoilers, and spoiling this book would be an absolute sin, so let me just say this: I am generally very skeptical of book descriptions that tell me I "won't see the ending coming" because, for the most part, I always see the ending coming. Not to say I'm a book-reading genius, but it's just a fact that when you read a lot and watch a lot of television shows and movies, you come to be familiar with just about any plot twist that can get thrown at you, and you can usually see them coming.

I didn't see this one coming.

So, if you're into books that rip your heart out and make you crazy and then leave you trying to catch your breath and sort out your feelings and dying for the sequel, I suggest you go read this now.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
