From the Publisher
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.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtownis a wholly original story of
rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing
from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.
