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 * 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 * Thrilling and original * Books For Keeps * An imaginative and creepy read * SFX Magazine * [Racks] up suspense to a Hitchcock-aping high * Sci Fi Now * A mind-blowing story of rage and revenge, love and loathing * The Sun * This is an enormously entertaining horror, which makes Twilight look tame.

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
