If the literati had a cheerleading squad, they'd be stomping and clapping like the dickens right now to herald the nearly-here excitement of Holly Black's "The Coldest Girl in Coldtown." (I said, BRRRRR! It's cold in here! There must be some vampires in the atmosphere!)
Come September, we'll all be able to sink our teeth into the story of Tana, who survives an inexplicable massacre only to end up in Coldtown—a walled enclave in which humans trade the juice in their veins for a chance to party with predators—and a race against time to unravel the mysteries at the heart of the city. But today, lucky you, you can get an EXCLUSIVE first taste of the excitement to come...because we've got an excerpt that you can't read anywhere else.
There's some crazy buzz a-brewing for this book, so you won't want to miss the chance to take an early peek at it. And if you're in sunny San Diego for Comic-Con, you won't want to miss this, either: Author Holly Black will be talking up the romantic entanglements of Coldtown's chilliest girl on a special panel, "When Grrls Fall in Love," that's devoted exclusively to examining how YA heroines find time to kiss the boys in between all the kicking of butt and chewing of bubblegum. It's an all-star lineup—Veronica Roth, Ally Condie, Lissa Price, Marissa Meyer and Veronica Wolff will be there, too—so if you've got Saturday free for a trip to this year's Shangri-La for geeks, you know where you'd better be.
Are you so excited for "The Coldest Girl in Coldtown"?
