College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school’s social scene: somewhere less than zero.
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 come out fighting when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood….

I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print
This book is a very much meant for young adults and is not like her some of her other more adult orientated series eg the Weather Warden series.
To me some of characters were very immature at times and most of the vampires could be clones. They are not the Cullen's.
Still the book does hold some charm and should appeal to the younger audience or those who remember who the target audience is.
The story ends on a major, major cliffhanger so if you like books to at least tidy up most of the main plot threads be prepared to be disappointed
Aside form all that the narrator does a good job and the story has enough action to keep you involved if you can forgive the above points. which is why i gave it the rating i did because for the audience it is aimed for it hits most of the right buttons for that demographic
just recently Glass Houses: Morganville Vampires, Book 1 became a daily deal as i found out apparently now it has a different narrator it now not available in Australia. This has happened with other series and will not be the last time.
"non-stop vampire action"
Ever wondered what it would be like to live in a town ruled by vampires? For Clair Danvers and her friends, this is a grim reality. Morganville Texus is a town run by vampires, where any human not under the personal protection of a vampire is fair game. Life is a constant struggle to survive. Far from being a vampire romance, this book attempts to paint a portrait of life under vampire rule and Rachel Caine does a splendid job. With four excellent main characters, this book is compulsive reading and the saga is only just beginning.
"Fabulous and addictive"
Loved this when I read it a few years ago but enjoyed it just as much as a travelling companion too
this was amazing. it's hard trying to find a reader whose voice isn't annoying as I'm sure most of you will agree however Katherine Did an amazing job. the story line and plot twists were amazing I keep re reading or re listening to the book
"Not quite it"
This book can be said to be well written, but it's not for me. I wasn't keen on the story itself, I found the narration bland and I was unimpressed all around. Just not my type of book,even though I enjoy most of this type o book.
"a fun story well written and performed"
on par with the print version. a very entertaining story wonderfully performed, A different voice for characters makes it very easy to follow.
what i like best about the story is the originality of it. the characters are really well thought out. the story's slow but interesting which escilades towards the end
the scene i most enjoyed is Claire's first meeting with Amelie. it's a very dark atmosperic scene.
the book can be quite moving when Claire's bullied by Monica and her friends which leads to the story
the story, although slow at times is like a rollercoaster ride, funny, sad and a lot of suspence. i love Rachels writing style, simple but effective. the thought into the characters is top class, and there's some really good characters who Katherine brings across to the audience really well. a really good listen, which i listen to again and again..
"Enjoyable listen eventually"
I found this to be a slow burn for me, I usually go for fast paced gritty reads and found this more of a thoughtful and slower paced, but once I found the Authors wavelength I did enjoy it but I think in the future I will stick to the faster paced thrillers, and maybe come back in the future for book 2 and see if I come round to it.
