Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.
One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.
- This has to be one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. Christine Lakin was an amazing reader, she had the perfect voice the for the book. They also did musical additions to the story which worked perfectly. Such a pleasure to listen to!
- I loved the whole concept of this book. Holly Black did an amazing job with this story. There have been millions of vampire stories but this one is unique and fresh, I really want it to be a movie or TV show!
- Coldtowns were so neat – I could see this happening in real life. Unlike the acceptance in the True Blood series, vampires were forced into guarded towns to live. Humans could choose to live there was well, because we all know the draw of vampirism. They were rough, dangerous but illusive at the same time.
- I seriously enjoyed Tana. She has to be one of my all-time favorite characters. She was real, strong and weak, realistic but unstable. I would want to be her friend.
- The open scene of the book catches you and you are on a whirlwind journey, not really knowing where the story is going to go. It kept you on your feet and begging for more.
- Man, I am a sucker for vampire boys that are good and bad. Gabriel really got to me, I was begging for a romance the whole time. He, like Eric (from True Blood) is that vampire you NEED to stay away from, but fall for at the same time.
- Midnight and Winter’s characters were so pivotal for me. Learning their real names and then have Coldtown really come to life for them (trying not to spoil) really shows human nature and our insatiable desire to supersede death and get ourselves into unnecessary trouble.
- There was awesome death quotes in between each chapter.
- Not a single one. The only thing I wanted was more! Please, please Holly, please write a sequel!
"She might be herself still. But she would be herself hungry. A self she didn't know yet. Herself with the brake lines cut. A self she didn't trust to do anything but kill."
