Publisher's Summary

Morganville, Texas, is a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad come 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.

Bite into another Morganville Vampires novel.

    "I tried"

    Just could not get into this book. I listened for over 3 and a half hours, and was left thinking, "so what"? I usually like teen novels, but this one just didn't go anywhere through the first third of the book.

    "nonsensical teenage blech"

    Alright, I buy these cheep teen paranormal romance novels when they go on sale, and I never go into them with high hopes. Yet they continue to disappoint. Putting aside the overall concept of the town run by vampires, it's just another bland series of events culminating in a predictable crisis brought on by the characters' own stupidity. Really, when you have a prodigy genius (who was accepted to Harvard, MIT, etc) as your main character, you kind of expect her to be a little bit brighter. I mean, at one point she suspects there might be vampires in the library, so breaks into the locked room, and then is SO surprised that there are vampires in there and doesn't know how to get away... Anyway, if you're looking for a teenage paranormal romance novel which features an odd group of friends who are combating supernatural forces without any parental supervision (and one of them is actually a ghost), then go read Maggie Steifvater's "The Raven Boys". It's about a million times better than this sorry excuse for a book.

    "Wanted to like it"

    It started off great and some fantastic characters in it but the action or love scenes can be painful. Example - The girl who is supposed to be genius smart acts like she has no brain when the author needs it to move along the story. I wanted to really like it as looking for a new series.

    "Still as good as I remember"

    This series has been a favorite of mine for years, and while the narrator does take a little getting used to, her performance is enjoyable in the end. Definitely worth a listen for someone wanting to start a new series. You won't regret picking up Glass Houses

    "The book that started it all!"

    I remember srating this series many years ago. So glad to be reintroduced with the audiobook version. One of my favorite books of this series because of the budding romance between Claire and Shane.

    "One of my favorite vampire series"

    This book, and the others in this series, are one of my favorite vampire series. It's different and has original characters! Good writing and concepts throughout the book and series. The performance is great and extremely engaging!

    "Throwing rocks at glass houses"

    I was under the impression that this was a young adult book it found it to. Be a teen book. I liked the story and will probably continue to the second book. The characters are all likable but I feel they still need to grow. The story line was addictive and easy to follow. It was easy to get pulled in.
    I thought the story had a good flow to the end, but it sounds like it continues into the next book. I liked the narrator also.
    This was not a bad teen book. I just wished it would of been labeled better.
    I look forward to the next book.
    I thin a 4 star rating is fare because the story kept my interest throughout the whole book.

    "awesome"

    I absolutely love this series. Claire is witty and smart and funny without having to be supernatural in any way.

    "LoveLoveLove!"

    These books are the absolute amazing! They could've done a better job at picking a narrator though.

    "Its great for YA but not wasn't my bag is all"

    I believe the storyline is different than some vampire novels and the characters were interesting and the narration good so it was easy to keep listening too. I am not going further in the series as books 2-4 are not available via Audible but not sure I would have anyway. I believe this book perfect for those 16+ would have liked a little more bite on character development but without reading book two not sure if the author was just alluding and keepin' it interesting.
