Review: Lux (Nocte Trilogy) by Courtney Cole.


by Courtney Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



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.

“The End is the Beginning”

WARNING: I don’t believe this review contains spoilers, but it’s impossible for me to give an opinion of this book without hinting some general things. Nothing detailed, just my feelings towards the story in general.

I really don’t know how to rate this…
I don’t even know how to start reviewing it.

These books are madness, the story, the plot, everything. It makes me mad too.

This is not the first time I go through something like this, where I don’t know if things are real or the product of the imagination of the main character. Where I don’t know if the book is fantasy or a case of madness and delusion. But the first time it happened at the end of the series I had answers. Mara Dyer, anyone?

After finishing the series all I can say, with absolute certainty, is that I’m still not sure of what was real and what was not.

I think the author was a genius, unless this wasn’t planned and even she didn’t knew the end/true of this. But she was very clever on putting this together and making the end to be whatever we chose to be. I bet it works wonders for some people. But for me? For me there are two options:

– This book was a fantasy (paranormal) book and those things we went through were the product of that.
– This book was about a really crazy girl and everything was just the imagination of a crazy mind.

But for me it didn’t feel like fantasy. So I don’t believe that in my heart. And I don’t want to choose the madness because who would want to? Even if it is the choice that makes more sense to me. So I would have rally love that the author would have given me that answer. An absolute true. Even when in reality I know there’s no such a thing as an absolute true, because there’s always subjectivity in them. But there’s always facts, and here the facts were so blurred, so crazy, so senseless. We went trough the same events over and over and I’m really confused. I was seeking for answers and all I got was more questions.

I have to say, that even though this book, this story, was crazy and dark, those dark things weren’t narrated or described in detailed, otherwise I don’t think my mind would have been able to take it all in. (view spoiler)

I think the creativity of the author is amazing, my respects for her because ¡Wow!, as I said before this was crazy! I hate it and yet I kind of love it. I couldn’t stop reading it, I couldn’t drop it. And even though in this last book I had some things figured it out, I wouldn’t have guessed that it would end the way it did. In the beginning.

P.S: I was given an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.
