Guest Post and Giveaway Darkest Day (The 19th Year #3) by Emi Gayle

Published: January 6th, 2014


Mac Thorne’s time as a Changeling is coming to an end. 

It may have taken eighteen years, but Mac did finally manage to do what the Council wanted: she chose a teacher and renounced the in-between. 

There’s just one last step. She must say goodbye to her human. Forever. 

After being challenged in every way possible, Mac leaves what she thought would be the easiest task for the last possible moment. As midnight on July fourth draws near, though, she hasn’t found a way to give up Winn Thomas. 

Nor does she want to. 

With time running out, Mac stands at a literal crossroads. Choose Winn, and she’ll be stripped of the only family she’s ever known — vampires, dragons, and her favorite demon. Even her own mother. Accept her position on the Council and rule as an equal to her twelve peers, and she’ll forget Winn ever existed. 

Independence and freedom have never before been so limiting. 
In this final chapter of the 19th Year Trilogy, it’s time for Mac to decide. 
Responsibility? Or Love?

The Perfect Ending

What is the perfect ending to a story? To a novel? To a trilogy? Is it what the author expects/wants? Is it what readers expect? Is it a mix? Maybe it's none of those things but what the story is telling the author to pen. 

I don't think there is a perfect ending to every book. I think, honestly, that there's simple the right ending for every book.

We can't, as readers, expect everything to go the way we want as we aren't the creator of the character. As authors, we're often torn with how to end a book/series/trilogy because what happens if there's another story to tell later? What happens if while you planned to end it, there's more to come?

So what is the perfect ending? To Darkest Day, it's exactly what I wrote. Well, I think it's perfect anyway. And I hope you do, too.

About the author:
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.

Superba carte! Imi place mult descrierea, pare extrem de interesanta si as vrea sa o am. Ar fi frumos sa o pot citi, pentru ca ma atrage destul de mult. Vreau sa stiu ce se intampla cu Mac...
