Synopsis - from goodreads

Weeks after his crucifixion and rebirth as Phoenix, Ash Fisher believes his troubles are far behind him. He and Natalie are engaged and life seems good. But his happiness is short-lived when he receives a threatening visit from Purian Rose, who gives Ash an ultimatum: vote in favor of Rose’s Law permanently relegating Darklings to the wrong side of the wall or Natalie will be killed.

The decision seems obvious to Ash; he must save Natalie. But when Ash learns about The Tenth, a new and deadly concentration camp where the Darklings would be sent, the choice doesn’t seem so simple. Unable to ignore his conscience, Ash votes against Rose’s Law, signing Natalie’s death warrant and putting a troubled nation back into the throes of bloody battle.

My Thoughts

I loved loved loved the first book of this series. Black City was released in November but i read this book back in June because i won a copy from the author, it makes waiting for the second book even harder! The book just has such a great concept; a sort of mixture of paranormal and dystopian and i can't wait to see where the second book goes.


  1. That is a lovely cover. Good luck with waiting.

  2. This is such a gorgeous cover. I still have to read Black City (I'm waiting for it to be released in Australia) yet, but I'm anxious to!
