WoW 31. The coldest girl in Coldtown.


Hosted by: Breaking the Spine.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
Holly Black – The coldest girl in Coldtown.
Expected publication: September 17th 2013 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
COLDTOWN WAS DANGEROUS, TANA KNEW. A GLAMOROUS CAGE, A PRISON FOR THE DAMNED AND ANYONE WHO WANTED TO PARTY WITH THEM?

Tana lived 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 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 haven’t read any work from Holly Black before, but I’m really fascinated by this blurb. Leave a link to your pick this week!

  20. I tried one of Holly Black's other books from her fairy series and didn't particularly like it. I gave up. However, this sounds pretty awesome with the idea of coldtowns, so I'm adding it to my wishlist as I'm willing to give her another try.

    Great pick! :)
