The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
About: Want a creepy read for Halloween? Look no further than Holly Black’s The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. Meet Tana, who lives in a world where the monsters have crept out of the closet and vampires are the latest celebrities. You may be ready to put a stake in vampire lit, but read this first: “It’s dark and dangerous, bloody and brilliant,” ~ Kirkus Reviews.
Roben says: One morning, after a Sundown party, Tana wakes up surrounded by the corpses of her friends – the remains of a vampire feast. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperating ex-boyfriend Aiden, infected by the vampires, and the mysterious Gavriel, who speaks in riddles and seems to teeter on the brink of madness. Scared but determined, Tana races to save everyone the only way she knows: by going straight to the heart of Coldtown, where infected and uninfected humans mingle with vampires in a world turned upside down. The problem is – people go into Coldtown but hardly anyone ever makes it out again. Tana is determined to get back home to her little sister but – like all well-laid plans – things don’t necessarily work out the way she thought they would. You’ll have to decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I liked Tana – she is a strong, loyal, compassionate heroine with a little dash of crazy. I don’t read a lot of vampire books but I really enjoyed this one!
