The truth shall set you free.
My name is Calla Price and I’m drowning.
My new world is a dark, dark ocean and I’m being pulled under by secrets.
Can I trust anyone? I don’t know anymore.
The lies are spirals. They twist and turn, binding me with their thorns and serpentine tongues. And just when I think I have it figured out, everything is pulled out from under me.
I’m entangled in the darkness.
But the truth will set me free.
It’s just ahead of me, so close I can touch it. But even though it shines and glimmers, it has glistening fangs and I know it will shred me.
Are you scared?
“Run, little mouse. The hawk is coming, and you’re going to get eaten.” – Dare, Verum
I can’t even…just wow. What in the world did I just read? Verum by Courtney Cole was no less mind boggling and intense than Nocte and no less engaging either. This book had me by the hairs from the very start. I read it straight through in just two hours. I couldn’t put it down! Verum picks up where Nocte left off and takes us on a journey where reality and illusion collide. I honestly don’t even know what to make of what happened. Each time I think I have something figured out – BOOM – Cole inserts a twist that I never saw coming.
The more involved I get with the book the more I feel like Calla, coming apart at the seams. There is so much going on, so many stories, so many angles and people involved and I can’t help needing to know everything. The connection that Dare and Calla have…all these new family members, the secrets. There’s so much to uncover and it seems as if Calla is in a race against time.
This is literally one of the best written novels I’ve ever read. It’s different and the characters are definitely unique. We find so much more out in this book about Dare and Calla and their shared history and about her family in general. And I’ve gotta say I wasn’t expecting quite a few things that happened and then the ending…
Holy crap the ending…Mind blown is all I have to say. Like when is the final installment coming out because I have issues with waiting like I need it now immediately so I can figure out what the hell is happening before I go a little crazy.
I would highly recommend this read. It’s thrilling, full of the kind of dark things that go on inside someone’s head that is never explored and just…read it. Totally read it!
