Replete with grisly violence, an intriguingly complex take on the mechanics of vampirism, and well-developed and memorable characters, this superior, dread-soaked tale will satisfy vampire addicts of all ages. PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY Exciting, violent, sexy, Tana is a wonderful creation, sarcastic, intensely loyal and yet very sensitive. This is the fastest paced vampire thriller you'll ever read. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown will be a sensational bestseller. -- Sam Hawksmoor HACKWRITERS.COM Holly Black's vision of a culture that could support Coldtowns is elaborately plotted and eerily plausible... an imaginative and creepy read. SFX Best-selling Holly Black launches a chilling new contemporary fantasy series as gripping as her Spiderwick Chronicles. In Tana's future-set world, vampires abound. In the walled cities - Coldtowns - infected blood suckers and humans live in deadly dangerous proximity never knowing exactly when the one will turn on the other. They are partying against all odds on one thrilling rollercoaster where the cost of a mistake is sky high. After waking up at a party and finding she is one of only three survivors, Tana heads to Coldtown with her companions for the adventure of her life - or death! -- Julia Eccleshare LOVEREADING In all, it was a gripping, unpredictable book, that let you explore a new exiting and somewhat dangerous world; what more could you want? Now all I want is a sequel! -- Izzy Read, age 12 LOVEREADING The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a gorgeously gothic novel from acclaimed author Holly Black. A world of beautiful but deadly vampires awaits inside- but who dares to enter Coldtown? -- Emer O'Brien, age 16 LOVEREADING This is a fast-paced, original vampire thriller, with plenty of action to quench your thirst...the snappy, sophisticated style of narrative was smooth and enjoyable. -- Georgina R, age 15 LOVEREADING Black has created a world which is chillingly believable. THE BOOKBAG I've loved everything Holly Black has ever written, but I really do think she has stepped it up a notch with this book. If you haven't guessed already, I loved The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, which is surprising because it's overflowing with vampires, a fantasy breed I now usually roll my eyes with boredom at. Yet there was definitely no eye rolling at these vampires - Holly Black has stripped them of their goody two shoes Twilight enhanced image and laid bare the nastiest, most vicious vampires that have not seen the light of day since Anne Rice brought us An Interview With A Vampire. SERENDIPITY REVIEWS With a host of characters inside the Coldtown with their own politics, agendas and relationships it is an astute story set in a world of damaged perceptions: teenagers desperate to be vampires and the Coldtowns streamed as glamorous reality TV. Tana is a believable teenager, and whilst Gavriel is the love interest here, Tana recognises him as unstable and possibly insane - vampires are never presented as safe. Tana's final decisions will surprise readers in a satisfying way. A successfully thrilling and original teen vampire book. BOOKS FOR KEEPS This book made me feel all sorts of emotions it was fantastic. I think its descriptive and effective. Holly has created word images so vivid that it is almost like watching a movie. She takes you for a romp through Coldtown and find yourself in a action packed suspenseful event with the evil Vampires that had my heart facing and had me excited from beginning to end. DARK READERS I'd recommend The Coldest Girl in Coldtown to all vampire fantasy fans who are now trying to find a good book about them, which is paints them in their true picture as dangerous, mad creatures. ESCAPISM INTO BOOKS For a long time now, I've felt that Holly Black's immense talent has been underrated by readers, so I'm hoping this book will push her into the number one fantasy spot she so rightly deserves.
