Publisher Description

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.

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.

“We all wind up drawn to what we’re afraid of, drawn to try to find a way to make ourselves safe from a thing by crawling inside of it, by loving it, by becoming it. tana became it so jude could become so much worse. this was unexpected. dystopian meets gothic horror, with that unique, macabre holly black etherealness. Every hero is the villain of his own story, wouldn't you say?" tana wakes up to a party full of dead friends with her ex-boyfriend tied to a bed and a chained-up vampire in the next room. “You are more dangerous than daybreak.” a slower-paced standalone with eery imagery of locked-down cities full of vampires and vampire chasers and their gore, with glimpses of a haunting romance. And if she could go back and do all those crazy, impossible things, then maybe she could be crazy enough to go forward and save herself, too.”
