Teaser Tuesdays: BLACK CITY Edition (6)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
*Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This is my fifth Teaser Tuesday! I didn't think i was going to do this meme anymore but as Part of the BLACK CITY Tour I will have some JUICY teasers for you!! =D

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.
Teaser #1:
The girl and the children begin an aggressive dance. She lashes out at the cat people.
The children fall down one by one—Zanthina is victorious. Everyone claps and cheers.
She bows. Her dark black eyes rest on me, and my heart falters.
She’s a twin-blood, like me.
--(Black City, Ash, page 213)
@_@, who is she? IDK, but this is Ash's POV, so YAY DUAL POV!!! Now to the next one. TEASER #2:
The Darklings move out of my way, giving me a proper view of the dying boy.
His neck and chest are slick with blood; his breathing is shallow and ragged.
I should be repulsed, but I’m not.
The sight excites me, and for once, I’m not scared to admit it.
--(Black City, Ash, page 216)
Well as you can see this week is ASH!! He sounds really complex because he doesn't know how to be about his nature. O_O

  1. Ohhhh....that sounds so good! And dark--I love dark books. I have an ARC of this, but I haven't gotten to read it because my sister already did a review on our blog, so I'm reading others I can review first.

    But this just makes me want to throw aside everything and read!
