Review: Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires #1) by Rachel Caine

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. 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.

I think I just found my new favorite series. Glass Houses, the first book in the Morganville Vampires series was a super fun read. I loved the characters, action, hint of romance, and everything else about this book. It is a wild ride from the start and does not slow down at all.

Claire is a great character. I loved that she was not a tough girl and actually showed that she was scared at times. With the things she went through, I thought she was a realistic character.

Shane was by far my favorite character. I loved his sense of humor, and I liked how much he cared for his friends. He may do some stupid things, but he has great intentions.

The only thing I did not like about this book was the HUGE cliffhanger ending. I really wish I had the second book on hand, but sadly I did not. Reading the next book is a must for me.

Rating: 4/5

  1. I really dig this series, but they're almost all cliffhangers - I recommend getting them in sets of 2/3 so that you've always got the next on hand. Though, there are some natural breaks that aren't huge cliffhangers in there so you will reach breaking points to read other things :0
