The Darkest Sunrise
by Aly Martinez

This is book 1 in The Darkest Sunrise duet.  And it is amazing!

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.”

I was sucked into this book from Page 1.  This was a heartbreaking story will all kinds of twists and turns.  This book made me cry and laugh in the same chapter.  This is a story about two broken people trying to find there way out of the darkness together.  I loved Charlotte and Porter.  Charlotte was broken and so so sad.  And Porter was angry and trying to figure out how to move on.  As we discovered new details, I was pretty sure I knew how this story was going to go.  But I had no idea how we were going to get there.  And it was so incredibly heart wrenching when we did get there.  This book is amazing, and it does end on a cliffhanger.  But Book 2 comes out on July 27, so no worries!  I have read the conclusion, and it's perfect!  I cannot say enough good things about this book, and I think everyone should read it!
