Publisher's Summary

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from best-selling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

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.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music.

I listened to this book a long time ago and loved

I absolutely love this book and just wanted to leave my feedback on it. This though is the audio version that adds the sounds to the normal audio version which I think is much more preferable when listening to this story. I only wish there was a contiuation of this book I buy it in a heartbeat!€€♡♡♡♡

Really great narrator!

This was hard to stop listening to! Very good work from the narrator, amazing acting, and just very nice in general. The story is pretty good, 1-2 things that are iffy, but that's personal opinion. Really good overall!

A Captivating book you'll love getting lost in.

I absolutely adore this book. I've read it several times and bought the audio because I wanted something I knew I loved to listen to while working on art. The story is captivating and believable. Holly Black doesn't shy away from the dark and uncomfortable parts of what humans are like. And challenges the idea of what it means to be a a monster. The world she creates is full and immersive. You can see it as absolutely being real. And all the details bring it to life and pull you in. The characters are layered, complex and human. Even the inhuman ones. Unlikeable characters are unlikeable for more than just that they are "evil" or "mean" and you love characters despite their flaws. The flaws only making them more relatable and endearing. The narrator also does a splendid job and has a wonderful voice. and music is put in at times that add to the atmosphere and mood. I love this book and believe anyone who's a fan of fantasy, fairy tales, adventure, vampires or great writing will love this book too.

Fantastic!

I've been a Holly Black fan my entire life and this one still surprised me with its ingenuity and writing.
Such a good story, on the verge of a classic vampire tale with perfectly wrought Black-esque edginess.

One of the best vampire books EVER!

This book is amazing, I wish there was more! The story was original and well written. The pacing was prefect and the excitement /action had me biting my nails. I have read/listened to other Holly Black books and loved the Folk of Air and Modern Faerie tale books, but I think this is my favorite. I REALLY enjoyed this. Christine Lakin did an excellent job narrating; loved the different accents- really brought the story to life!

Ended up loving this book!

I wasn't overly excited with the first few chapters of this book, but I'm a huge Holly Black fan. I have read most of her books. It pulled me in after a while and I couldn't stop listening. I wish there was more but the story had a satisfying ending.
