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 ordinairy party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The nly 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, opulen heart of Coldtown itself.
"Every hero is the villain of his own story."
- Holly Black, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
Out of all the characters, Graviel has to be the I cared most for. His flashbacks were the ones that actually grabbed my attention and his personality in general can be addictive. However I didn't care that much for him that I actually shipped him with Tana. The romance wasn't that well done He was a fun character, yet nothing more than that. To talk about other characters, Tana occasionally felt like a pain in the ass and the others... There's really nothing to talk about, really. I liked Midnight in the way of her flaws such as her little naivete of the real world and wanting to escape it.
