I've stopped reading for some time but now I'm considering picking it up again because I need some inspiration.

Are there any books out there that contains some of these elements?
-futuristic/Utopian society
-underground world/black market. (in depth would help. I don't need any sugarcoating)
-action/violence (as in fighting/war), it would help if it talked about futuristic weapons and such
-noir or something to that effect
-romance/drama/soft erotica
-suspense/thriller
-NOT horror. D:
-how could i forget? angst!

basically, a decently-paced books with dark themes,strong/cynical characters, and possibly a few well-planned/unexpected twists?

i don't know?
D: recommend anything?
