by Caine, Rachel
College freshman Claire Danvers thought her parents were being too overprotective by sending her to Texas Prairie University instead of letting her attend MIT. Protecting their daughter from growing up and experiencing life is the least of the Danvers’ worries when Claire learns that Morganville is a haven for vampires.
When living in the dorm becomes too much (and too dangerous), Claire moves off campus and into Glass House, a house owned by Michael Glass, who readers quickly learn has secrets of his own. Claire makes friends with house roommates Eve and Shane, a couple of Morganville locals, who teach Claire how to stay out of harm’s way and survive in a town where the impossible is very much possible.
Glass Houses is the first book in Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series. Caine does a good job of character development and explaining just what makes Morganville tick in the first couple of books. Further into the series readers will learn about Morganville’s history and just how deep Claire’s involvement with the town will run. This series is a good one to pick up for those who enjoy reading paranormal fiction such as the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
