Vampires have become something of everyday life in Tana’s world. In order to control the outbreak the authorities have created Coldtowns. These cities are filled with a mix of vampires and humans, and once you enter a coldtown, it is almost impossible to leave. After a big party, Tana wakes up and is surrounded by dead bodies. There are only three survivors, her, her ex-boyfriend, and another strange, charming, and secretive boy. So she fights to save the three of them, by taking them all to a coldtown.

So if this seems like a vague description of the book, I have two good reasons for that. Number one, my computer is freaking out and I am trying to finish this quickly, number and more importantly, I’m just not sure this book is about anything at all. Tana wakes up, Tana goes to coldtown, Tana lives in Coldtown, blah blah blah. It wasn’t terrible, but I don’t have anything great to say about any aspect of it. The characters weren’t very likeable, the plot wasn’t very engrossing, the end wasn’t amazing. I thought the story had a ton of promise, not to mention that it was hugely hyped up… That is all the time I am willing to spend on this one.
