Waiting on Wednesday [40] - Black City by Elizabeth Richards

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****


Black City by Elizabeth Richards
Expected Publication Date: Novembr 13th, 2012
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR
Page Count: 373 pages
Pre-order: Amazon
A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the aftermath of a bloody war. 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.
Why I Can't Wait: This story is reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet and I can't wait to read it!!! There's just something about forbidden love that always gets me :) I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this one!!

  4. Forbidden love always ropes me in too! I think it does it by making us love the characters so much that we want the relationship to work just as much as they do!

    Thanks for sharing!
