The Lovereading4Kids comment
February 2014 Book of the Month Best-selling Holly Black launches a chilling new contemporary fantasy series as gripping as her Spiderwick Chronicles. In Tana’s future-set world, vampires abound. In the walled cities - Coldtowns - infected blood suckers and humans live in deadly dangerous proximity never knowing exactly when the one will turn on the other. They are partying against all odds on one thrilling rollercoaster where the cost of a mistake is sky high. After waking up at a party and finding she is one of only three survivors, Tana heads to Coldtown with her companions for the adventure of her life – or death!
