'Compelling and fresh.'Voya on Black City
'A quick, lusty romance in a world gone awry.'BCCB on Black City

'Detailed postapocalyptic world building makes Richards' series debut intriguing.'Booklist on Black City
'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.'Examiner.com on Black City

Our customer reviews

This has been a series that I have loved and sought out, so of course I was nervous going into it but had every faith that Richards would do an amazing job. Honestly, going in, I only remembered the basics and that Ash was an amazing character and I loved their romance. It started right in with the story. The alternating POV between Natalie and Ash is back. It is so hard that they are separated because I know they are lonely and worried about the other. Its the last book so its not a spoiler to say that I was soooo relieved when they were finally reunited even under the rising chaos and such of trying to take down Puritan Rose and his cronies. There are quite a few twists in this one, and one of those surprises is that there is another point of view. With my fibro and memory issues, I didn't remember if we'd met him before or the significance of getting into his head, but I did like his voice and the tension of the time and rules he's living under. He's had a hard life, but it is good that he has that bond with one person in his family--even if his methods of showing love are sometimes harsh or shocking. This isn't my favorite of the series though. It was good and mostly kept my attention but I did find a few times where I was skimming and looking for action, romance, or the next POV. This was mainly in about 2/5-3/5 of the way through, once past the halfway I was flipping pages like nobody's business wondering how everything fit together. And once it started clicking, the set-up really set the pace on fire. Information was revealed that had me pretty shocked. Also, the romance was amazing and it kept making me sigh. I love Ash to death and how he is with Natalie, and the strength and resolve he has to keep going and fighting for a better world for all the races together. He sees a lot of loss and grief, pain and suffering in the fight to get there. Each character played their part so well, and I really appreciated the ending. It gave me closure and it was a brave way to go out. Nothing was 100% put back together, but the people who needed to die or pay for their actions got what was coming one way or another, and Natalie and Ash have the hope and bright future ahead of them to make things work in a whole new way. They feel the loss of some who fought beside them, and they relish the ones who made it and others who joined them along the way. Bottom Line: Good ending to a series I loved, hard saying goodbye to Ash and this swoony romance.show more
