BLACK CITY ended the war a year ago. Darklings and humans were segregated. The Darklings were sent to the Barren Lands to die. NATALIE BUCHANAN is the daughteer of the Emissary. She desperately wants to go into politics, but her mother changes her application so her friend, Craven, can "pull some strings" to get Natalie into science. Except she doesn't want to experiment on rogue Darklings to cure the Wrath. She thinks of it as torture instead of research. ASH FISHER is a rogue Darkling until his dad gets him an identity bracelet. He has gone from son to pet in a matter of minutes. The next day, Emissary Buchanan comes to the school and makes an announcement: Anyone who commits a "Capitol crime" against the Sentry States will be executed in the square. THEY do the most dangerous thing possible:They fall in love. Neither will admit it, but they can't keep away from each other. ASH FISHER is blamed for a crime that he didn't commit. He is blamed by the Emissary for the murder of Chris Thompson, when Chris really dies of a Haze overdose. NATALIE BUCHANAN finds out that a new kind of Haze, The Golden Haze, is killing Haze addicts if they have more than a drop. She must figure out what in it can be so deadly before it kills everyone. ASH FISHER must stay alive after he and Natalie kill Gregory Thompson. Gregory was a Tracker, and it is a Capitol offense to kill a Tracker, and one of them must die for it. Black City is an absolutely amazing story in an amazing world with great characters. I can't wait for the sequel, Phoenix!
