Description

Coldtown is dangerous. A prison for the damned and those who party with them.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cruel Prince comes a deliciously dark YA novel for fans of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries.

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 24 hours a day - gorgeous, glamorous and deadly! The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown's gates, you can never leave ...

When Tana wakes up one morning after a perfectly ordinary party, she finds herself surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of the massacre are her 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 heart of Coldtown itself.

A wholly original story of rage and revenge, love and loathing from bestselling and critically acclaimed author of The Spiderwick Chronicles and The Folk of the Air series, Holly Black.

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. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown will be a sensational bestseller. -- Sam Hawksmoor * HACKWRITERS.COM *

Our 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
