#71 Glass Houses: The Morganville Vampires, Book 1 by Rachel Caine

My Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

Meet Claire Danvers, an advanced student headed off to college at Texas Prarie University a year early. Unfortunately, she's made quick enemies of some of the more popular girls in the dorm, and after numerous attempts on her life, she comes to realize that Monica and her pals are no longer joking around so she begins to look for off-campus housing, despite the fact that freshmen are prohibited to do so. But hey, if that's what it takes to keep her alive....

Responding to an ad in the local paper, Claire meets up with Eve, Shane, and Michael, and after a bit of worrying about her age, they've invited her to live at the Glass house, owned by resident Michael Glass. But the rest of the town is still out looking for Claire. It seems she's pissed off the wrong people; the "wrong people" being of the undead variety: the Vampires that rule Morganville. But can her new roommates keep her safe?

This was a good first book in the young adult Morganville Vampires series. At times I thought it was a bit too teenish for me, but I get that feeling with a lot of teen books whenever they start "crushing" on a guy or stuff like that. LOL It ended on a cliffhanger, as many young adult books seem to be prone to do, so I'm definitely looking forward to starting the next in the series shortly, which I have waiting for me here anyway as part of Amberkatze's bookring. :-)
