Publisher: Self-published


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 Opinion

I couldn't wait to start this book. The second I finished the first one in the duet I needed this. Unfortunately the ARC wasn't quite ready so I had to wait, which basically meant checking my email every hour of the day to see if it had arrived. 

The Brightest Sunrise picks up where The Darkest Sunset left off. For that reason I'm not go into any details about the plot since this is the concluding book. 

While I didn't feel this book broke me as much as the first, it was definitely packed with emotion. It held my attention well and I couldn't put it down. I thought the story was intriguing and a roller coaster of drama. It had its dark and light moments and the author did a good job of balancing everything so that the book was well-rounded. 

The only thing I will say is I wasn't too keen on the end. Maybe it's just me, but it came too quick. 

Overall, I still prefer this author's Retrieval duet. However, this was equally emotional and two of the most heartbreaking ARCs I've had the pleasure of reading so far this year.

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.
