Staff Pick: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
From goodreads:

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 Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

Pick itif you’re looking for a book that mixes paranormal romance with a touch of dystopia. Tana is definitely not a main character who shies away from danger or bad decisions - maybe she's just your type of girl.

Skip itif you’ve had enough bloodsuckers to last you for the next few years.

Pair with: Diabolical by Cynthia Leitich Smith for an even more heightened paranormal drama set in New England.
