Book Review: Black City by Elizabeth Richards

Natalie should hate Ash. He is a Darkling and she is Sentry. Her father’s brutal murder by Darklings scarred her deeply, yet she doesn’t hate him. She loves him, though society and her own instinct doesn’t approve. When harsh new laws loom that could separate them, will their unorthodox love survive? Will they?

This book has a clever and imaginative plot that twists the usual star-crossed lovers angle. However, the romance seemed too fast-paced. It’s unreasonable that a girl would change her mindset about Darklings after one day and that detracted from the story.

That being said, I would still recommend it to an audience 12 and up. The ending hints at another book and I eagerly await it!
