Deep in the heartland of the United Sentry States are the burning ruins of the Black City, a melting pot simmering with hostility as humans and Darklings struggle to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of a brutal and bloody war. A wall now divides the city separating the two races. Trapped on the wrong side of the wall is 16 year old hustler Ash Fisher, a half blood darkling who'll do whatever it takes to survive, including selling his addictive venom Haze to support his dying mother. When he meets Natalie, hatred soon turns to a love that could be punishable by death.

Review:

"Detailed postapocalyptic world building makes Richards' series debut intriguing."--Booklist

"Provides a balanced combination of romance, action. and fantasy."--SLJ

"A Romeo and Juliet-type of relationship, yet there's so much action, anger and angst that the plot line is just as vital as the romance aspect. Fans of urban fantasy and forbidden romance will definitely want to pick this one up."--USA Today

"Compelling and fresh."--VOYA

"A quick, lusty romance in a world gone awry."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Book

"Elizabeth Richards' debut as a fiction author is inspiring. Her sense of drama, combined with brilliant attention to detail and the striking ability to create tension, makes the book a great read . . . The next books of the Black City series will be awaited with bated breath."--Teenreads

"This book is one that will be enjoyed on many levels from the literal plot of two very different teenagers who fall in love (think apparently doomed love as in Romeo and Juliet) to the subplot of discrimination leading to violence and chaos. 4/5 stars"--Examiner.com
