The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

I've shied away from teen vampire novels ever since Twilight came and ruined it all. Suffice to say, this is one hell of an exception. This book restored my faith in the "vampire genre" by proving there are strong female characters and new story lines to be had.

Tana is at a house party and wakes up passed out in a bath tub. When she walks amongst the littered beer cans and old pizza she discovers a ghastly scene. All the teenagers she had been partying with had been brutally ripped apart by vampires. When she goes to find her phone in a back room she discovers her ex-boyfriend who has been infected with "the cold") chained to a bed and a crazed looking vampire chained in a corner. She decides to save them both and take them to the nearest coldtown (i.e. a quarantine where vampires, infected people, and wannabees go but can never come out). Along the way they meet a pair of sibling twins Midnight and Winter who decide that they want to be bitten so they too can enjoy the fabulous vampire life that they see on tv. Together they all journey to coldtown and Tana must decide if she is going in with the beasties (in case she has accidentally contracted the cold) or if she will ditch them all and go back to her boring ho hum life. Decisions, decisions.

The characters are complex and realistic. The story line fast and unpredictable. It's a great thrill ride and you won't regret reading it. I forsee this being turned into a movie. It would be a shame not to!
