Black City by Elizabeth Richards
Expected publication date: November 13th, 2012
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection, that causes Ash’s long dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong. When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.
Dystopian slash post-apocalyptic with a paranormal twist.. Yes please! The cover intrigued me and the synopsis made me want to read this book. It's just.. I wonder how this is going to tie in together? It sounds awesome, but on top of that the premise has me wondering what it's going to look like. I *love* not knowing what I get into - even though I know a little bit with this one. I cannot wait to get my grabby little hands on this book!
