The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
by Holly Black
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 3, 2013
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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
This one has been on my radar for quite a while. Usually vampire stories don't pique my interest, but this one sounds so unique, and I love how Holly adapted it from a short story she wrote.
