Review quote

This is an enormously entertaining horror, which makes Twilight look tame. Delightfully dark and gorgeously gothic Book Trust A mind-blowing story of rage and revenge, love and loathing The Sun [Racks] up suspense to a Hitchcock-aping high Sci Fi Now An imaginative and creepy read SFX Magazine Thrilling and original Books For Keeps Replete with grisly violence, an intriguingly complex take on the mechanics of vampirism, and well-developed and memorable characters, this superior, dread-soaked tale will satisfy vampire addicts of all ages. PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY Exciting, violent, sexy, Tana is a wonderful creation, sarcastic, intensely loyal and yet very sensitive. This is the fastest paced vampire thriller you'll ever read.

Back cover copy

800x600 [Please can the two lines in bold below be set to stand out in some way - maybe in a different colour or font or size or using the swirly lines from the US back cover (which we're also going to be using on our TPB cover when it gets amended) in some sort of clever way... I leave it to your superior design eye to judge the best way to do this but I'd just like these two lines to stand out from the rest as a sort of intro... Thanks Laura!] Coldtown was dangerous, Tana knew. A glamorous cage. A prison for the damned and anyone who wanted to party with them. 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. It's an eternal party, shown on TV twenty-four hours a day - gorgeous, glamorous, deadly! The problem is, once you pass through Coldtown's gates, you can never leave . . . www.blackholly.com www.orionbooks.co.uk ISBN 978 1 78062 171 5 £7.99show more

Customer reviews

I read this book in 4 hours, yes 4 hours. it was fast pacing and exciting, from the first page you never know what is going to happen! I have read a lot of vampire books and most are the same, but the coldest girl in cold-town has brought a whole new twist to vampire i found it to but very entertaining. I would recommend this book to people who may have lost their faith in vampires but Holly Black has brought them back. similar books, The blood of Eden trilogy.show more
