Waiting on Wednesday (5): Black City

Waiting on Wednesday (5): Black City
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine to highlight upcoming eagerly anticipated book releases
So this week's eagerly anticipated pick is:
Black City by Elizabeth Richards
Expected publication date: November 13, 2012
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons 
From Goodreads:
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.
Firstly.....I LOVE THIS COVER, so so much! Secondly, this whole premise sounds like Romeo and Juliet - post apocalypse style...with perhaps zombie like creatures (his heart was dormant) ... So I'm super excited to see what this one's going to be like!
