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?

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.

So I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was to read this book; I've loved the series from the first chapter of book one and I was totally, completely, twitching-in-my-seat DYING to know how this impossible situation was going to play out.  You know that Mac doesn't play by the rules and she keeps jarring the expectations of the establishment (everyone wants to be THAT cool), but how in the world was she going to make it all work out?!?!  Well, I spent two days, pretty sleep deprived, glued to my Kindle because this is one crazy, roller coaster of a ride! This is such an emotional book.  After the first book from Mac's perspective and the second from Winn's, we get to hop back and forth between their perspectives and experience it all.  These two are such unique characters and I can't say I warmed to either of them at the start of the series, but by the beginning of book 3, they both had wedged themselves firmly into my heart.  Mac and Winn were tormented by this decision that had to be made and it seemed completely impossible.  There's also something incredibly sad that happens in this book.  Obviously, I won't tell you what, but I read this part in a doctor's office waiting room, just trying my best not to ball like a baby.  If you read Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series where Rose is with Dimitri's family after his death --yeah, just like that-- soooooo deeply sad, but not in that sappy, over the top, drama-y way. Even with all this emotion going wild, there's tons of action and mystery to this novel.  Things are happening and new questions abound; a foe rises up from an unexpected place.  There's lots of incomplete answers from the previous books rearing their ugly heads with their need for completion.  I truly cannot get over how much Emi Gayle was able to weave into this trilogy without it getting overwhelming.  Wow, just wow. The conclusion of Darkest Day was everything for which a girl like me could ask.  Much like the TV series LOST, the 19th Year series had a whopping amount of mystery to be unraveled; unlike LOST, Darkest Day completely satisfied all my curiosity.  I'm amazed by the ending, the choice Mac makes, how it all works out.  This was a total jump and down, hug my e-reader moment.  Such character growth!  Such plot twists!  Such fun!  I did actually guess what Mac would choose (totally a random guess), but had no idea how even her choosing what she did would give her that happy ending.  And then it all came together perfectly.  I cried I was so happy! I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  See more of my reviews on my blog, Known to Read.
