REVIEW: The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez

Another emotional read from Aly Martinez, The Darkest Sunrise was enough to pull me out of my book funk and reignite my passion for reading.

Martinez doesn’t hesitate in tackling difficult subject matters, and from the first pages, holed up in my local cafe and sniffling into my coffee, I knew this would be an emotional struggle. Not only did it deal with one of life’s most frightening, nightmarish scenarios directly, but also with the aftermath and the fallout still occurring a decade after the event itself. It’s pretty harrowing.

With characters to fall in love with, The Darkest Sunrise is a beautiful nightmare, harsh but hopeful, dealing with desperation, numbness and fragility. Despite being a little predictable, it’s the sort of darkness to envelop oneself in, and emerge from the other side desperate for the second half of the story.
