Counterspell question


Does trying to use Counterspell, and failing, still cost Endurance ( = DC/5)? I think it does, but wish to confirm.
I wanted to check the book hence slow reply but I also think you loose the EP. In the general casting description it states that EP is lost whenever a spell is attempted and the occult roll is failed.

The way that the description for counterspell is split between the description of the occult roll and the EP cost was just done for clarity on those two issues. Rather than to suggest that the EP wasn't lost if the occult roll was failed.
