Coldest Girl in Coldtown is Holly’s newest book, out this past tuesday, September 3rd. As a stand-alone I wasn’t sure about reading it, because I like to have characters for more than one story. But I enjoy Holly’s books so much, and I was curious about how the dark Ms. Black would present vampires in her on way and voice, so I tackled the book. Perhaps tackled is too strong of a word, because this book flowed easily; I couldn’t put it down. The main character, Tana, was absolutely fantastic as a protagonist. She was relatable, strong, and independent, and yet there were some good vulnerable scenes. And I would be remiss if I left out the sexual tension. Sheesh, she has one of the hottest kissing scenes I’ve ever read, and another scene later with a friendly vamp that was so intense and intimate I felt like I should be going for a cigarette after reading it. It was most excellent. But, lucky for those of us who also like some meat to their stories, the love aspects didn’t dominate, and the world she created was complicated and entertaining to be in for a while.
This book is a must-read for YA fantasy fans. It has it all: violence, passion, introspection, adventure, tension. Oh, and really hot kissing.
