Book Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown


The Coldest Girl In Coldtown is a love letter to all of Holly Black’s favorite vampire books. I purchased it at her book release party at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA. Not only did I have a great time at her fun event, I enjoyed this book thoroughly!


This isn’t your “average” vampire novel. When Holly Black read from her book, I was hooked. The characters and the circumstances were very interesting.

Tana wakes up at a party to a different world. Mostly everyone around her, (the other party goers), are dead. The only survivors from the party, other than herself, are her ex-boyfriend and another teenage boy. The infection is spreading, and Tana is on a race against time to get the three of them to a place called Coldtown.

Coldtown is a walled city where infected humans and vampires are quarantined. Far from the glamorous party place wanna-be vampires think it is; in reality it is a prison… An absolute hell.

The words flow like poetry, and the story was so interesting that it was hard to put it down. I highly recommend this book!

“There is nothing for her beyond those gates,” Gavriel said. “Do you think to bring her along like a talisman to remind you of your humanity? Or do you think sharing your damnation will lighten the burden of it?”
― Holly Black, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
