Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Thursday, February 27, 2014
Why I chose this book: 
I won’t lie, when I picked up this book I was not expecting vampires. Paranormal? Yes. But the synopsis is a bit misleading, like the book itself, and lures you into a story of dark vampires with mediocre plot development. The only thing that kept me going was the delicious presentation of the audio storytelling. I listened to this book on my commute throughout the month of February, which ironically was the coldest month in my state. So while I endured the chilly drive to and from work, I loudly complained to myself about the characters, plot, and pacing. So if you saw me on the road talking to myself like a crazy person, I apologize.

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. (Goodreads)
