Nocturne is perhaps my favorite chapter in the epic journey of Indigo, although it is hard to pick one.In Nocturne, Louise Cooper blends contrasting elements very effectively. On the one side you have Indigo joined up with a travling show. Where motleys of colors and myriads of songs are the norm. But then color starts to depart from the landscape around them, and in the wake of blighted crops fear starts to grow. It is here Indigo meets her third demon, and unlike those in the past, her power takes center stage. This book gives haunting questions of reality, as well as what is the true nature of fear. With all these elements, it would have been very easy to fall victim to meaningless cliches. But as any fan of Louise Cooper will attest, one of her strongest suits is her ability to take ideas you have seen or heard before, and show them to you in a completely different way. If you are considering staring a series by Louise Cooper, make sure you have every book of the series before you start reading them, or you just might drive yourself crazy in the interim.
