“You are more dangerous than daybreak.”
Coldtown is an eternal party, at least that’s what the feeds would have you believe. For years vampires have been kept inside its walls with humans desperate for never ending glamour. Tana was never like that. She had no interest in joining the bloody balls hosted beyond the gates but after a party she’s attending goes awry she may not have a choice.
A book so rich in world and characters that I often had to pause in reading for I feared I would finish too quickly and lose them. Holly Black has written another incredible urban fantasy piece filled with diversity including bisexual and trans characters in a genre they often seem absent from. The different character perspectives, the fully realized world and history all sew together one of the greatest books I’ve had the pleasure of reading this year. In a world filled with tired vampire stories, Black sparks life back into the undead.
