Let’s just get this out of the way. Aly Martinez is the MASTER of writing a duet..I didn’t think it could get better than Retrieval and Transfer but oh no…it could and it did. She grabbed us and held us prisoner with The Darkest Sunrise and then didn’t let us go for the entire length of The Brightest Sunset and let me tell you, I’ve never been a more willing hostage.
Every time I think Ms. Martinez has reached the pinnacle of her writing and story telling she hits you BAM right up the side of the head with a story that is so powerful, emotional and gripping that you have no choice but to sit for the hours it takes to get to the end. The journey of all of these characters will have you clinging to the words, written so perfectly that you feel every emotion in real time. Fighting for them, wishing for them, and wanting to take your kindle and pummel certain characters with all your might. A powerful story of love, belonging and struggle. I can’t recommend these books enough. All of this author’s words need to be read, but this duet is a MUST.
