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.

“Finn?” I ask hesitantly, but there is no answer.
He’s truly gone.
The room is empty and cold and stark.
My entire life, my brother has been my other half. He’s loved me unconditionally, completely, with everything he has.
And now he’s dead, and he’s asking me to do something.
Something hard.
To exist without him.
To figure out, once and for all, what is true,
What is real.
I have to do it.
And to do that, I have to re-trace my steps.
If Finn is gone,
There’s only one thing in my life that is true.
One true point of reference.
One important thing.
With shaking hands, I close my eyes,
and try to think about Dare.
Because it’s always been about Dare.
I try to focus on his dark eyes, and his bright smile, and his swaying shoulders … but thoughts of him won’t form. They’re stubborn and elusive, and all I can think of is the beginning.
The beginning
The beginning.
With a start, I remember scratched words from Finn’s journal.
Mars solum initium est. Death is the beginning.
The beginning, the beginning.
My breathing catches then quickens, because maybe once again, like always, Finn is telling me where to go.
Maybe the beginning is exactly where I need to be.

Praise for the Book
"If you have not read this series yet, you definitely need to check it out. It will blow your mind in so many ways. I myself loved every single, twisted, crazy part of this series. Courtney did a simply amazing job writing this story and it will forever remain one of my all time favorite series." ~ Chris blog emporium
"If you are reading this review, you have probably already read the first 2 books in this series, and are wondering about the last one. I would whole heartedly say read it now! This story was absolutely gripping, every single page, and I was literally reading and holding my breath. The atmosphere, tension, and fantastic mystery made this book so entertaining. And if you happen to have read this review, and haven't read Nocte and Verum first, seriously do not even wait, go grab them now, this series is incredible!!! Psychological, at times dark, at times sad, and all round mystery, plus an epic love story that seems to have lived through pretty much everything and anything. Definitely read!!" ~ Seraphim Book Reviews
"I loooooved it - and I won't say more than that - everything more I could and would want to say about the book would be a spoiler!!!! You need to get yourselves to amazon and one-click the hell out of this book!!!!!!" ~ BJs Book Blog
"These characters are so complex, it's like peeling an onion, one layer at a time, one book at a time ... to get down to who they really are. This was the perfect conclusion, I was captivated, enthralled, and saddened to know the madness has come to an end; however, I think Courtney created enough inner madness to sustain me for a while." ~ Resch Reads and Reviews
"Spellbinding, riveting, out of this world AMAZING!! This was one of my most anticipated books this year, with every single book in this series I was blown away. Courtney Cole takes you on this crazy out of this world journey where you question absolutely everything. [...] I can't say much without ruining it but I can say I am sad that it had came to a end. I cannot even fathom how much I loved this series and how Calla and her journey will always stay with me. FOREVER! One of the best series EVER!!" ~ Tarah Hodges-Wilkins
