Cover Reveal: After Dark by Emi Gayle

After Dark is the first book in The 19th Year trilogy and will be released on the 31st of October 2012.
What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably kill her.

In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes, Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life.

She has no choice but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore. Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be human during the pesky daylight hours.

Once darkness descends, Mac can change into any supernatural form that exists — which makes her as happy as she can be. That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class figures out there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge.

In this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.

My Opinion:
I'm not really a fan of this cover at the moment, because of the amount of different things all going on at once, (the gravestone, the girl, the fence, the spooky tree), I feel that it's all a bit too much. Less is more. However, I do really like the byline, "Dawn conceals what the dark of night reveals", but I think that the byline and the title could have been positioned better so as to show of the image. Even though I aren't particularly fond of this cover at the moment, I would probably still pick it up at my local book store.

Like the sound of After Dark? Add it to your wishlist on Goodreads!
