Book Review- Glass Houses

From the author of the popular Weather Warden series. Welcome to Morganville, Texas.
Just don't stay out after dark.
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'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.

My thoughts:

So I just finished reading Rachel Caine’s first in the Moraganville Vampire series, Glass House, and what can I say but wow. It’s everything I expected a vampire book of this genre would be. Most vampire books that I come across, portray the vampire characters as the heroes or the good guys. But in this book, the vampires are actually bloodsucking monsters who control the town’s population. They use the humans as blood banks and force them to donate a certain amount of blood a month. It’s great. Not only are the vampires fighting a kind of “war” with humans, but they are fighting a war within their own kind. It’s full of action, ghosts, romance and surprise that never leave a dull moment. And the ending was great; an amazing cliffhanger that further develops the story and leaves me pining for the next book.
