A dark and tender postapocalyptic 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.

Have you seen the cover???? It's GORGEOUS!!!! This book sounds so amazing. I'd never even heard of it before today, but as soon as I saw the cover and read the premise I was sold. And it's a good thing too! I had no idea what my WoW would be this week. But then I saw all these giveaways on my Dashboard and I thought "I should check this out!". Why must November be so far away???
