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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Replete with grisly violence, an intriguingly complex take on the mechanics of vampirism, and well-developed and memorable characters, this superior, dread-soaked tale will satisfy vampire addicts of all ages.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Teens with a yen for dark, futuristic novels, and maybe even a few Anne Rice readers, will find this a refreshing take on vampire lit. As always, Black’s writing is quick paced and thought-provoking.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“With rapid-fire dialogue, lavish details, and a wildly imagined world, this will enthrall Black’s fans from start to finish and leave them hoping for another bone-chilling vicarious tour of Coldtown.” Booklist (starred review)
“You may be ready to put a stake in vampire lit, but read this first: It’s dark and dangerous, bloody and brilliant.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
