     Here comes two books, Black City and Ten. Ten I am a huge fan of and I can't wait to get my hands on this promising book. However with Black City, I enjoy the concept and with the questions I have about the book (from reading the synopsis), I am just not sure where I stand on this one. It's got a few key points that I enjoy, the fight for love, but there is a lot of questions that put me on edge with this book.

Title: Black City
Date: November 13th, 2012

     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.

     I am not sure exactly how I feel about this book yet... There is something about the Darkling that has me interested in knowing what exactly they are and how what it means to humans. For instance, why did the Humans go to war with the Darklings? We know that both Humans and Darklings hate each other or supposedly they do, but what I don't understand is the underlying cause. And for that reason I'm intrigued.

     As well, there is this romance here that seems to be somewhat interesting. I wonder what kind of bridge Elizabeth will try to cross here. I have seen Human and Ghost, Human and Exiled Human, Human and Angel, Human and Vampire/Werewolf, but what will this be? I am curious to find what out what the Darkling is and how this will effect the relationship. I am just not sure on exactly why or how interested I am in this one, we'll see when time comes closer.

Title: The Ten
Date: September 18th, 2012

     And their doom comes swiftly.

     It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

     But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

     Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

     Ten... This is a hard book to search for when you need to find it. However, this book has a great appeal to it. I love the suspense of this book, or what appears to be a good suspense/thriller. I wonder in this novel if there will be a romance type thing appear and the boyfriend be one of the killers, that would provide a good psyche destruction worth reading about.

     Anyways, the whole trapped on a ship with a killer as he/she blends into the background with everyone and brutality the killing mannerisms. I love good books like this and I have pretty good hopes for how well this book will do. And I'm sure a lot of other people are as well. I haven't found a good suspense / thriller book for a while, one that puts me on the edge, rocks me back and forth, and makes it so I can't sleep at night. I hope Ten will do that for me.
