Today’s book is Glass Houses:
Author: Rachel Caine
Series: #1 in the Morganville Vampires Series
Publisher: Allison & Busby
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Summary: Welcome to Morganville. Just don’t stay out after dark.
Morganville is a small town filled with unusual characters – when the sun goes down, the bad come out. In Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows – one that will spill out into the bright light of day.
For Claire Danvers, high school was hell, but college may be murder. It was bad enough that she got on the wrong side of Monica, the meanest of the school’s mean girls, but now she’s got three new roommates, who all have secrets of their own. And the biggest secret of all isn’t really a secret, except from Claire: Morganville is run by vampires, and they are hungry for fresh blood.
This is one of my favourite series. The only reason why this book has only 4.5 stars is due to the fact that I feel like it’s just developing. I prefer later books where even the first page immerses you back into the story.
I love the covers of these books with their metallic writing and peculiar people on the covers. And the prose is the same, stunning. Rachel Caine (or should I say: Roxanne Conrad) has a way with words that I could only dream of. Humour, Terror and Extreme Drama have you gripping the edge of your chair, wishing for more whilst steaming through these books. The pace is beautiful; enough to read at a good speed but absorb every single detail.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone, due to it’s exceptional ability to make me constantly want more.
