Waiting On Wednesday is a meme where you basically share an upcoming book that you’re excited to read. It’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine by Jill.
The book I’m waiting on today is…: Black City by Elizabeth Richards.
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.
I know what you’re thinking right now: more vampires?! But I think this book will have bring something new to the whole vampire thing. And as long as these vampires won’t sparkle in the sunlight, I’m excited to read about this new twist! I think there’s still a lot left that you can do with vampires, so I’m interested to see what the author adds. Also, that cover is gorgeous! Not gonna lie, at first I only added this to my TBR because of the cover. But I’m glad that they synopsis is actually good too!
This book will be released on November 13th, 2012.
