Waiting on Wednesday: Black City

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

blackcityTitle: Black City by Elizabeth Richards
Publisher: G.P. Putnam
Publish Date: Nov. 13, 2012
Genre: Dystopia, Paranormal

Goodreads Summary: 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 am I waiting on Black City? 2012 seems to be the year for the dystopian/post apocalyptic vampire novel and I am loving it! Plus, the boy’s name is Ash and I cannot resist a YA novel with a boy named Ash :-). What books are you waiting on?

I'm very excited for this one! I feel like it should have come out already since I've already seen hype for the sequel but alas we still have almost a month.

I'm thinking this one looks good, too! I've heard some positives things so hoping it's as good as it sounds! I've decided to check out all the Breathless reads this year in hopes of them touring near me :)
