Black City
review 1: The premise is awesome, but something was missing. I think a little more polish was needed to make this book truly great. The characters, specifically the two mains, were also entirely too wishy-washy in basically every decision that they made (romance or otherwise). The writing was not the best-- too much science-magic, muddled character motivations, rough dialogue. Something told me that this was the author's first novel, and it seems that I was correct. I will continue to read the rest of the series, because they can only improve with time, and I truly enjoy the plot concept as well as the world-building, but I hope that the rest of the ride is a little smoother.
review 2: A refreshing take on vampires (and associated demons) - in this dystopian world they a
... morere segregated members of society living behind a wall and suffering from hunger and disease (possible metaphor for racism?). This makes for a very interesting world and the two main characters - Natalie, the daughter of high-ranking politician, and Ash, a halfbreed (or twin-blood) - struggle to navigate through their world as well as with their own personal demons. A good read for those who enjoy dystopian YA novels or vampire reads. less
