Blog Tour: After Dark (The 19th Year #1) - Emi Gayle, Book Review (160).

After Dark (The 19th Year #1)

Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal
Age Appropriate: Young Adult
Buy It: Amazon   Barnes & Noble
What I loved about this book was the different species of paranormal from vampire, fairy, witch. demon,ghost etc, and that's all just the main character!
 Mac whom is a Changeling, and who happens to be the only one in existence (one only appears every fifty to a hundred years) can change paranormal forms at night, has until her nineteenth birthday to decide on what form she will take permanently and will then take charge of that faction at the council table.
But Mac is undecided and with less than nine months to decide, she begins to feel pressured, but when she see's the school geek Winn walking out of the local library one night with a book about her heritage she resolves to accquire it even if it means associating with humans, so when they are both paired together in class on a project she knows that this is her chance to find out about herself and where she came from, as she's been kept in the dark all of her life.
I loved Mac's character, a strong kick-ass female, and Winn who's so adorable and they make such a good couple.
This storyline was original and extremely well done and I really can't wait for the next book, what Emi has written here is a fantastic start to what seems to be an extremely good series.
Definitely check this out!
I give this 5/5.

Author Profile...

Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenaged son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years. 

Ironically, those years were some of Emi's favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she's still in love with him to this day. She'll never forget what it was like to fall in love at such a young age — emotions she wants everyone to feel.
