Waiting on Wednesday: Black City, by Elizabeth Richards

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

My WoW this week is:

Black City, by Elizabeth Richards
Expected publication: November 13, 2012
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR
Format: hardcover, 373 pages

Goodreads description:
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.

I read an excerpt of this here months ago, and I've been tired of having to wait for more ever since! It was dark. It was damn sexy. It was a new take on vampires. It was dystopian. It has a gorgeous cover, too! Gah, I want it RIGHT NOW >_< Seriously, I must have entered like half a dozen giveaways, but without any luck so far. If anyone has an unneeded/read ARC they could send my way... be my guest and have my eternal gratitude ;P

Have you heard of this one, and is the wait as torturous for you as it is for me? What book are you anticipating?


  1. Ooh yes! I'm looking forward to reading this one too. Love the cover!

    1. It is! I love the dark city in the backdrop and the way the rose shatters! I really hope this is all gritty and urban :)

  2. This does sound interesting!
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. It sounds really good. I got an ARC at BEA, but I still haven't had time to start it. Great pick!
    My WOW

    1. Argh I wish I was already blogging long enough to have a chance at requesting ARCs >.< I'd love to go to BEA one day, but since I live smack in the middle of Europe that's not gonna happen anytime soon.
      Thanks for commenting!

  4. Ahhh, yes, definitely one I am dying to read. It sounds so good! :D

    1. Yes!! When I got to the end of that snippet I was like... sdkhahld you can't stop now!! (haha, sorry for the incoherence :P)
