Let's face it, we're all sick of vampires. But there are vampires, and then there are vampires. The vampires in The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, for example, are twisted in the best of ways. Holly Black serves up one girl's quest for survival in the depths of a hedonistic world where the only thing worse than dying is going cold...and liking it. Rich language, morally ambigious characters, vampires who'd sooner slit your throat than have a conversation with you... What more could you want for your holiday season?

Think Pride and Prejudice. Now cross it with Downton Abbey, and you'll have an idea of what you're getting into when you step inside the world of the servants who run the Bennet household. Baker's evocative prose introduces Sarah, a housemaid used to minding her own affairs -- that is, until a mysterious new footman arrives at Longbourn. Sarah's story is expertly interwoven with the affairs of Pride and Prejudice, but readers unfamiliar with Austen's original will still find a lush, captivating tale that stands on its own."Rebecca
