Courtney Cole – The Nocte Trilogy Reading Order

in Reading Order Guide:

I haven’t read this one yet, but it sounds right up my alley! Psychological thriller that is keeping so many guessing. This series is causing a ton of our fellow readers to be excited, confused and frustrated. Some, delightfully so… and some others, not so much.  But it seems so many just can’t get enough!

Tasha: I bought Nocte by Courtney Cole and was absolutely captivated from the very first page. Heck even the forward had me wiggling in anticipation. The story was AMAZING! I didn’t want to put it down, I was dying to find out the secrets…oooooh the secrets!! Didn’t see them coming, I guessed and guessed and just when I thought I knew, nope not quite! I felt so connected to the characters and all the emotions.. I don’t want to give anything away because it’s best to go in completely blind. This was the first book I have read in so long that I didn’t skip anything, not even a little…I can’t wait for #2, but I’m also satisfied with the ending. You must read this book! :D

Niki: I also read Nocte and agree with Tasha….the secrets….it definitely sucks you in!!

Amy: Oh crap, oh crap, oh crap…I think I know what is going on in Nocte. I *think*. Oh man… :?

Jean: Just finished Nocte…..damn…..

Amy: I risked it with Nocte and didn’t freak out. Amazing. To me it was more of a lead-in to the next book rather than a major CH.

Jean: I agree with Amy on Nocte…. not too bad of a CH but dying for the next book…

Melanie:  I loved loved loved it! Was totally blindsided. Immediately bought the second book.

Jean: I already started Verum today and feel like I need to be committed…. It’s making me crazy!

Danielle: I just finished Verum today and without spoiling anything I can say that I am thoroughly more confused and aggravated than I was after reading the first book. Both books are clouded in mystery and cliffhangers. Problem that I find is what to trust.

Jean: Verum has a major cliffhanger! And I feel crazy from this book! Yes Amy, reminds me of the Asylum series. The 3rd book in the Nocte trilogy doesn’t come out until March!!!!!!!!!!!! Just wanted to let you guys know, even through Verum ended in a CH, I can’t stop thinking about it a day later so……

Amy: Nope, not one-clicking Verum yet. Don’t wanna CH right now. Not doing it. *secretively one-clicks Verum*

About book #1:


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.

*secretively one-clicks Verum*

Lol Amy! You go girl! You can handle it. It’s worth reading right now. March will be here before you know it!

Maryse February 5, 2015 at 7:34 PM

LOL!!!!! :P

Jean February 5, 2015 at 7:48 PM

Maryse, I think you would love these! I have some guesses as to what’s going on but still kinda stumped! Verum is much darker and creepier than Nocte and I liked that!

Tracy February 5, 2015 at 8:03 PM

I’m excited about this. I finished A Second Chance At Paris and I think Nocte is just what I need. Starting it tonight.

Lise February 5, 2015 at 8:34 PM

Awesome series. Can’t wait for book three.

Kristen February 6, 2015 at 1:40 AM

Just finished Verum and…this series is total bat-crap crazy. It’s like the strange love child of NA and the tv show Lost. Not that it takes place on an island…actually, who knows, it could. Frankly a random polar bear appearance wouldn’t surprise me. But it’s awesome, and if I were you, Maryse, I’d use your Jedi super blog powers to get an ARC of book 3 and then binge read all three — I just want SOMEONE to know what the feck is going on, lol, even if I won’t for a few months.

Maryse February 6, 2015 at 10:04 AM

LOL Kristen!!!

This sounds like fun, and I think I would tear my hair out without book #3… ;)

I’ll see what I can do…

Cheryl February 6, 2015 at 10:37 AM

This sounds really good. Have to agree with Amy, I am NOT a fan of cliffhangers & will wait for book #3. *adds Nocte to tbr list*

Amy February 6, 2015 at 11:47 AM

Oh, okay. Yeah. It’s all funny until the CH makes me freak the freak out. *gives stinkeye to Jean and Maryse*

Although, Kristen’s comment (which made me literally snort) has me really wanting to read it now. Happy Jean and Maryse? Now y’all can have a good laugh at my turmoil. :P And Cheryl, if I’m getting pulled back into the craziness, I’m pulling you with me. ;)

Jean February 6, 2015 at 12:06 PM


Kristen February 6, 2015 at 6:48 PM

Haha! Freak the freak out. Love it, my turn to snort. You should just read it Amy…if you already one clicked…and if you’re like me, you’ll let it sit there for a day thinking you’ll just wait for 3 and then cave anyway. ;)
