Waiting On Wednesday (11)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"The Coldest Girl in Coldtown" by Holly Black

This book is to be released September 3rd, 2013. It is a stand-alone novel.

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 the 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.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black. 

What doesn't sound appealing about that? I am a little curious about the ex-boyfriend being "infected" as well as what the mysterious boy could be hiding. It seems like in every story there is one character that has some sort of secret. I noticed it when I first started doing Freebie Friday. Typing up the synopses there was always someone with a secret. Guess that is what draws an audience in... it certainly has drew me in with this book. That coupled with the fact that it's written by Holly Black. I heart me so Holly Black.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
