Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating, hosted by Breaking The Spine
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 struggled to find a book this week as most of the books I’ve been waiting for have come out this week! But, when looking on Goodreads, this book instantly jumped out at me and it looks really great! I think I’ll definitely pick it up when it’s released and see for myself what it’s really like! Doesn’t the cover look great?!
What do you think? What books are you waiting for this Wednesday?
