Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
Paperback: 448 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; Reprint edition (August 12, 2014)
Coldtown was dangerous, Tana knew. A glamorous cage, a prison for the damned and anyone who wanted to party with them.
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. And 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.
REVIEW: 5-STARS ***** I simply fell in love with this book. It was fun to read, and the characters created were great. I'm upset that this was a standalone novel. I would love to read more about this unique vampire story. The ending was left open-ended for the reader to wonder what happened. Although I enjoyed every moment of this book- that really bugs me to no end. However, maybe that's a small portion of what made this book so memorable. This author's writing style drew me in until the end. This was the book I chose for my Christmas present, and I don't regret it for one second. Definitely a fan! Recommended!
