"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
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR
Format: hardcover, 373 pages
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?
