Release Day Blitz & Review: LUX ( Nocte Series #3) by Courtney Cole


The dramatic series finale to Courtney Cole's bestselling Nocte trilogy!


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.
Be terrified.

This!! I read this entire series within a week and my goodness. I have to tell you as I was reading this I was I going crazy?? I was finding myself re-reading certain parts of this series just to make sure I wasn't reading it incorrectly or didn't miss anything.

At first I was not sure what I really thought about this series. Now that I have finished it I am still not sure what I feel. But I think that by the end of the series I had all of my emotions and thoughts back in check. Well, I would at least like to think that I did. haha. 

This whole series was a literal whirlwind of emotions. I found myself crying, laughing, depressed, any emotion you could have. I felt it while reading this series. There was a lot of death and sadness in this series and at times it was a little too much. But I was able to prevail and make it though somewhat unscathed. 

Not going to lie, this series is very dark, twisted and sad. There are not many lighthearted moments in these books. They are few and far between. But the mind is not always a happy, safe, and sane place. Tragic things can twist the mind, making you think sometimes that up is down, and down is up. Making you seem and feel a little bit crazy. 

That is how this series starts the make character Calla has suffered a traumatic loss, and these weird things start happening. People are coming and going out of her life. She is having dreams that she isn't sure are real or not. What she does know is Nocte Libre Sum....By Night I Am Free!

I truly felt for Calla, Finn, and Dare! Calla who is so much stronger than she even knows had my heart breaking throughout this series. Knowing that all the people around you know what is going on but being told you have to figure it out on your own. That everything has to happen in order. 

That can be frustrating and upsetting. I know that if my family, friends, and the people I love were being so cryptic around me I would have reacted a completely different way. But not Calla, she keeps digging and searching for answers. 

So with the help of the people she loves, they are able to discover fully the truth of what has been going on and why Calla may think that she is crazy.

I can not say much more without revealing everything, and even if I did I am not sure if what I would be revealing are what is true. You shall understand completely what I am talking about once you pick up this last a final book in this series and read it. I will say though, that this series was very well written. The concept brilliant, and I am so glad that I picked up this series. Even though there are things that were touched upon that I am not ok with at all. In the end I believe that everyone lived happily ever after, and that everything that was supposed to be changed was changed, and that life will go on. 

What secret does Whitley hold, why the children have to pay for the sins of their parents, and is Calla really crazy? Is Finn really dead? Is Dare a figment of Calla's imagination? 

ALL will be revealed!

And now that I have you all probably totally confused, GO! Make sure you grab your copy today and I promise you this review will no longer be confusing!!

BOOK SALE BLITZ: Phoenix Rising by Elise Faber

PHOENIX RISING is on sale!! To celebrate, we’re spotlighting Phoenix Rising with an excerpt and giveaway! Check it all out!

  About Phoenix Rising:

phoenix rising 1400x2100-2

A dangerous man with piercing green eyes.   A powerful ability that is rearing out of control.   Daughtry stumbles into a world where magic is real and the possibilities for her future are greater than she’s ever believed possible.   But the road to that future isn’t easy to navigate.   As she engages in a wrenching game of give and take with Cody, the man who’s gripped her heart in his sexy-as-hell fist from the moment she’s met him, Daughtry must decide whether she’s willing to risk it all — heart, mind, and magic — to take a chance on the man she loves.

Exclusive Excerpt:

 "Dammit. I need—"   Cody rolled to his back, pulling her with him. She ended up sprawled across him, the ceiling pressing along her back so that she was plastered against the wide expanse of his chest. His muscles were hard against her breasts, but she didn't mind in the least.   Daughtry couldn't get enough of him. She pressed her nose to his neck and inhaled his wholly masculine scent. It was addictive. She wanted to linger, to rub against his body until the smell of him was imbedded into her pores.   But Cody wasn't patient. He grabbed her face, stealing her lips.   Finally she broke away, gasping for air. She pressed a row of careful kisses all along his scar, as if her mouth might somehow erase the reminder of the grievous injury.   He shivered and pulled her face back up. She squirmed, wanting — aching — to get closer and came in contact with—   Holy shit.   She couldn't stop herself from rubbing against the hard length of him, making them both groan in pleasure.   A distant part of her mind screamed at her to slow down, that sex was bad for her. But the bigger part soaked in Cody, absorbing the whirlwind of arousal she'd never felt before.   Was this what it could be like?   His hands went to her hips, and he started to move her, as if to flip her onto her back. She gave a little cry of pain when her hair snagged on a root in the wall.   "No," she said when he began to push her away, attempting to slide out from beneath her. They'd started this—   "Why is this damned hole so small?" she asked as she reached up to claw at her hair until it came loose then finished rolling to her back. Her every nerve was on fire for him. There was no stopping.   "It's only made for one person. Just enough room to lie down and sit up." Cody's voice was husky, his words quiet. His heavy weight pressed her down into the earthen floor, making it hard for her to concentrate. "There was nowhere else."   "It's fine," she said. And it was. The sensation of the entire bulk of his body holding her in place was heady.   Forget claustrophobia. If this were what she could expect being trapped with him, she would sign up every time.
