Review: Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
About-It’s a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bed comes out. Because in Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows-one that will spill out into the bright light of day.
Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. The popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks on the school’s social scene: somewhere less than zero. And Claire really doesn’t have the right connections-to the undead who run the town.
When Claire heads off campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don’t show many signs of life. But they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood….
My Review- The Morganville vampire series is to die for. The author knows just how long to make a scene last and and how much detail to write. Plus the main character is one smart girl. I so would not mind living in Morganville. Sixteen year old Claire Danvers wanted to go to Universities like MIT, Caltech, and Yale. But her parents would not send her that far away. So instead they sent her to the closet thing they found. Morganville. After she gets fed up with her situation (The popular girls trying to kill her) she look for new place. That's how she finds out about most of the things she needs to know about Morganville. But now she just might not live to know the rest.
