    The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – Holly Black

The rest of her, including her clothes, was still completely dry, which was kind of a relief. Her neck felt stiff; her shoulders ached. She looked up dazedly at the ceiling, at the blots of mild grown into Rorschach patterns. For a moment she felt completely disorientated. The she scrambled up onto her knees, skin sliding on the enamel, and pushed aside the shower curtain.” Nothing could prepare Tana for what she would…

They seem to drip silver – like liquid mercury escaping from a broken thermometer.  But even though she is transfixed by the terrible beauty of his eyes, its his teeth that suddenly draw her fascinated gaze. Teeth that have extended inhumanly, the canines sharp and dog-like as he bares them and growls.” Marie O’Neal used have life, a family, friends. But that all changed when she met Theo, her maker. Now Marie now longer existed… She was Moth, a new fully fledged vampire, and one that…

I stood at the back, a nameless face in the crowd, too close to the gallows for comfort but unable to look away. There were there of them this time, two boys and a girl.
