"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."
The love interest is what you want it to be. Hot and forbidden, this love sky rockets sky high. The way it grows is so freaking exciting! Watching these two fight with every single chapter and then gets closer, exposing secrets, its get better and exciting as the ending gets closer…
Take it from me when I say Black City is an phenomenal book! Flat-out entertaining, Black City ignites the YA world with brilliance. The maddening love with the witty world building, once in the book you won’t want to come out. Black City is awesome!
I give it 5 BITES!
