Glass Houses: The Morganville Vampires Book One

Rachel Caine

Introducing the international bestselling Morganville Vampires. Welcome to Morganville. Just don’t stay out after dark. Morganville is a small town filled with unusual characters - when the sun goes down, the bad come out. In Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows - one that will spill out into the bright light of day. For Claire Danvers, high school was hell, but college may be murder. It was bad enough that she got on the wrong side of Monica, the meanest of the school’s mean girls, but now she’s got three new roommates, who all have secrets of their own. And the biggest secret of all isn’t really a secret, except from Claire- Morganville is run by vampires and they are hungry for fresh blood … ‘Thrilling, sexy, and funny! These books are addictive. One of my very favourite vampire series.’ Richelle Mead, author of the international bestselling Vampire Academy series.

Review

Claire Danvers has just moved to Morganville to attend Texas Prairie University. Only sixteen, shy, academically precocious and away from home for the first time, Claire finds herself struggling to cope with university life in a strange new town. When she becomes the victim of some particularly OTT mean girl bullying in her dorm, Claire opts for share house living in the quirky Glass House. Right from the first day Claire is aware that her new housemates, gothy Eve and hunks Shane and Michael, are different. And through them she gradually learns that Morganville is an even stranger, and more dangerous, place than she could have imagined.

I must admit to thinking before reading Glass Houses that the world doesn’t need another YA vampire series. But I’m willing to change my view. This was an entertaining page-turner with some genuinely suspenseful (and comedic) moments. The slightly older college setting, and the shared house with four strong main characters sets Glass Houses apart from other books in the genre. Readers of the Vampire Academy series should enjoy the Morganville Trilogy, but most of all this book reminded me of the excellent British TV show Being Human. I will definitely be following up and reading the other books in the series, to find out what happens as the vampire and human worlds fight it out in Morganville.
