Waiting on Wednesday: Black City by Elizabeth Richards

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.
Black City (Black City, #1)
Hardcover, 384 pages
Published November 13th 2012 by G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR
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.
Why I am Waiting:
This book came out yesterday and I can not wait to get my hands on a copy. The synopsis sound so awesome. I mean it has a bloody war, darklings, tension, a romance, and excitement. This book has practically everything and I really can't wait to read it. I need to get out and buy myself a copy pronto. =]
