Blog Tour w/Review for The Darkest Sunrise (The Darkest Sunrise Duet #1) by Aly Martinez

THE DARKEST SUNRISE (The Darkest Sunrise Duet, #1)

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.”

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

Get your tissues ready because this book will get the waterworks running. I have to say this book will go down on my all time favorites. This book was so beautiful, heart wrenching and so much more. Aly did such an amazing job writing these characters stories and putting it all into words that you will absolutely feel the pain that oozes from them. You will want them both to finally find some happiness in their lives but that road is one that is by far one of the hardest roads to travel. These two characters are so perfect for each other but at the same time things just might bot be meant to be.

I highly, highly recommend this book. This is one that will forever be on my favorites list and I am dying for the next in this series. If you haven’t checked this author’s work out yet then stop what you are doing and check this book out. It is so worth the time to read it and you will be absolutely emotionally invested and desperate for the next as well.

Pre-order Now: 

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.”



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.
