Waiting On Wednesday (37) Black City


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:




Black City (Black City #1) by Elizabeth Richards

Hardcover, 373 pages
Expected publication: November 13th 2012 by G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR

Synopsis From Goodreads:
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 Want To Read It:
I usually prefer to read contemporaries, but when I came across this book and read the synopsis I was definitely intrigued.

What are you waiting on this week?
