Two stars. Didn't finish reading this book, as it became too gruesome for me. Ick. I was tired of the bad language anyway--the author tried to keep it real with foul words from a former gang member character. I had to skip over the graphic sex, which I wasn't thrilled about seeing by this author. I had high hopes for this thriller, given that the author wrote such popular teen books in the 90's.
From the back of the book:
In The Cold One, Christopher Pike creates a villain whose soft touch can wither a person's soul, whose great beauty conceals a black heart, and whose breath carries death in every exhalation. An emotionless being of great and ancient evil, the Cold One exists only to destroy mankind.
