Following the enthralling cliff-hanger ending of Phoenix , Natalie finds herself separated from Ash and unexpectedly reunited with her parents, including the father she thought was dead. After her escape from prison, Natalie's mother joined the Sentry Rebellion and had Natalie brought to her in Gallium. Natalie's relieved to know her parents are okay, despite her shock at learning her father is alive and well, but she can only think of Ash. She hasn't heard a word of him since she and Elijah were brought to the underground headquarters of the Sentry Rebellion. But she knows he's out there. And she vows not to stop searching for him, even if her parents won't help. Ash, meanwhile, finds himself back in Black City, which was abandoned after the fires he set ravaged the city weeks ago. Still on the run from the Sentry government and now aligned with Elijah's brothers, it's the perfect place to avoid detection. He worries for Natalie, but the beat of his heart tells him she's still alive somewhere. He won't stop searching until he finds her, even as the United Sentry States and the terrible reign of Purian Rose come crashing down around him. A pulse-racing end to an exciting series. Praise for Elizabeth Richards and The Black City Series 'Ash and Natalie are strong, clever, and determined to prevail. The ongoing struggle between good and bad is delineated with heart-thumping action and strong plotting. A cliff-hanger ending will have fans eager for the next instalment.' Booklist on Phoenix 'Exciting and compelling plot . . . will have readers quickly turning pages. This reviewer will no doubt be back to see where the tale goes next.' Voya on Phoenix 'A Romeo and Juliet-type of relationship, yet there's so much action, anger and angst that the plot line is just as vital as the romance aspect. Fans of urban fantasy and forbidden romance will definitely want to pick this one up.' USA Today on Black City 'Compelling and fresh.' Voya on Black City 'A quick, lusty romance in a world gone awry.' BCCB on Black City 'Elizabeth Richards' debut as a fiction author is inspiring. Her sense of drama, combined with brilliant attention to detail and the striking ability to create tension, makes the book a great read . . . the next books of the Black City series will be awaited with bated breath.' Teenreads on Black City 'Detailed postapocalyptic world building makes Richards' series debut intriguing.' Booklist on Black City 'This book is one that will be enjoyed on many levels from the literal plot of two very different teenagers who fall in love (think apparently doomed love as in Romeo and Juliet ) to the subplot of discrimination leading to violence and chaos.' on Black City
