Black City - Elizabeth  Richards *Genre* YA Dystopian*Rating* 3-3.5*Full review shortly*Although I clearly have problems with dual POV's, this actually worked because it would not have made any sense otherwise. I am a sucker for Dystopian novels these days. If you've followed me at all you will see that it appears 1 out of every 3 books I read is Dystopian. I liked the world building that we are shown in Black City. I liked how Richard broke the country into 9 regions and actually told the reader what each of the regions were. It's the mark of a good writer to really make you hate the so called villains in their books. Well, job well done because I am really horrified by the actions that Purian Rose and even Sebastian take in this book.I actually liked how Natalie was brave and went after what she wanted even though she knew that it could eventually lead to her doom and destruction. There are, of course, some things I really didn't much care for. The one point is how Ash's heart was suddenly able to beat after meeting with Natalie? I know it's supposed to be Soul Mates's and all, but it still doesn't explain it fully. I appreciated how this book, in the end, made me emotional since you get attached to these characters and don't want anything bad to happen to them. I would like to know more about Polly as well. I kind of feel sorry for her knowing her situation and who her father is. (Notice, no spoilers!) Obviously this is the first book in the series, so, there's plenty more fun to come.
