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.
I have never read a book by Holly Black ever, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into this book. I knew it was about vampires and that was it. I am glad I went into not knowing much because wow, it was so good. The writing and the characters are amazing, the way Holly Black writes is absolutely fantastic. She sucks you in and your left wanting to know more every time you read it. This book was so good I didn’t want to finish it, I wanted to hold on to as much of the story as I could.
Your MC is a girl named Tana. She awakens in a bathtub of an old farmhouse to find herself in the middle of a massacre. Everyone at the party from the night before is now dead except Aiden (Her Ex-Boyfriend) and the Vampire chained up in the corner. She is soon faced with the possibility of being infected along with Aiden already being infected and makes the choice to go to Coldtown.
Coldtowns are cities that built walls around themselves to help keep the vampire population in and hopefully stop the spread of the infection. Most humans end up going to coldtown because they have glamourized vampirism so much they want to turn into one. So facing the Aiden and Herself being infected, tana heads to coldtown in her car with Aiden and Gabriel ( the Chained up Vampire)
I keep gushing over this book, but it was so good. I honestly compare it a bit to savage song by V.E. Schwab as far as the built-up cities and Humans against monsters (Vampires). I was thoroughly impressed with this books and is definitely one of my favorites this year. Overall it was such an amazing book with great writing and a fabulous world. The character building was astounding, especially with the growth after getting to Coldtown.
