About The Book:

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. 

Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience. 

“You’re pregnant.” 

“It’s a boy.” 

“Your son needs a heart transplant.” 

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. 


Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun. 

Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky. 

“He’s gone.” 

For ten years, the darkness consumed me. 

In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise. 

“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. 


Words destroyed me. 

“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.” 

“Daddy, he can’t breathe!” 

“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.” 

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. 


Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me. 

Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness. 

“He’s gone.” 

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise. 

“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.” 

My Review:

The Darkest Sunrise (The Darkest Sunrise, #1)The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez is the first book in her brand new duet, The Darkest Sunrise . Told in dual POV, ending book one with a fantastically crafted cliffhanger, this book explores despair, perseverance, and hope in a way that I haven't experienced before.

Charlotte Mills has spent ten years in mourning for her missing baby boy, Lucas. Finding life to be more manageable if she just shuts down emotionally, she has powered on through and is a successful Pulmonologist with her own private practice. Her only rule - no children. She doesn't want to be around them, she refuses o treat them, it is avoidance and preservation and the only way she moves forward each day. It isn't until she meets a man at a spring fling that she begins to open herself up to change. The reason, he recognizes her darkness and just lets her be her, darkness and all.

Porter Reese has spent the last two years hating. Hate burns so deep in his soul and he hides it every single day for the sake of his children, his lifeline, his true loves. When he meets Charlotte at the spring fling he doesn't realize who she is but recognizes her on a soul deep level as someone who suffers in the same darkness his own soul suffers in. Realizing later that she is the same "Mills" who is the doctor he is desperately trying to get to treat his son puts the little they've built together at risk - she doesn't see children.

Shockingly tragic. Hauntingly beautiful. Two broken souls doing all they can for each other. Perfectly paced. I LOVED this. The story slowly builds piecing together details making the puzzle clearer until everything blows wide open at the cliffhanger. I highly recommend this. Enjoy!

About The Author:

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children. 

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person. 

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
