Waiting on Wednesday 7

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to showcase eagerly awaited upcoming releases.

This week I’ve picked Black City by Elizabeth Richards

  • Expected publication: November 13th 2012 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons
  • Hardcover, 384 pages
  • Series: Black City, Book 1
  • ISBN13: 9780399159435 ISBN 10: 0399159436
  • Goodreads / The Book Depository

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 really want this book. I love the cover, the premise, everything. And I’m insanely jealous of everyone who already has it and especially the US/Can market, who are definitely getting it! It hasn’t been picked up by an Australian or UK publisher yet, but I anticipate it will be in the near future.

I’d love to see what you are waiting on … please leave links and I’ll be sure to check them out!
