Title: Black City (Black City #1)
Author: Elizabeth Richards
Release Date: November 13th 2012
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR
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.
I thought I've had my fill of dystopia/post-apocalyptic already, but this seems too good to pass up! I mean, just look at that cover! *drools* Also, I have a soft spot for forbidden-love stories ♥ I hope this will be available here in the Philippines; I'll surely pick up a copy!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.
