Blog Tour: “Black City” by Elizabeth Richards – Character Highlight + Giveaway!

Welcome to My Life is a Notebook’s stop on the Black City Blog Tour, hosted by Good Choice Reading Promotions. Make sure you check out all the other stops HERE. Allow me to fangirl a little and say ohmygod I can’t believe I’m a part of this. I’m SO EXCITED to be sharing this with you guys because there is so much good stuff already out with this tour, and there is so much good stuff yet to come! Just WAIT until you see the giveaway! But first, just in case you don’t already know what Black City is, let me tell you…

Black City (Black City #1) by Elizabeth Richards

Goodreads | Amazon

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.

Alright, now you know why I’m so excited? Well, now you also get a chance to meet a character NOT mentioned in the blurb, but you’re going to want to remember his name…
