The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
Publish Date: September 3, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

I'm actually in the middle of this book right now, but I still want to feature it for WoW because IT IS SO, SO, SO GOOD! You must get this book.

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.

  15. LOVED this one! Now, I want to reread it (and will probably have to before I review it). And just look at that cover. WOW!

  16. I discovered Holly Black when I read the Curse Workers Trilogy--and I'm glad to hear this one is good, because, much as I admire Holly, I have zero desire to read her fairy books. Only, I've heard across the board that The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is awesome and that makes me kind of reluctant to read it.

  17. Ooh, yeah I've been hearing it's good so it's good to get confirmation from you, too!! I think if there's anyone who can breathe more life into vampire fiction, it's Holly Black.
