Review Day – The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

By Cynthialuhrs @wickedgreens

Once a month or so I’ll share a book review. We’re continuing our vampire theme. Are you tired of vampire books or do you still snatch them up?

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black – This is a different spin on vampires. The heroine views life filtered on an an event that happened with her mother at an early age.


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.
