Book Review ~ Glass Houses
Title: Glass Houses
Author: Rachel Caine
Rating: 3.8 (couldn't give it a clear rating :P)
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 any signs of life, but they come out fighting when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood...
Glass Houses is the first book in the Morganville Vampires series written by fantasy author Rachel Caine. When Claire moves into her dorm she is bullied to the point of being physically harmed. She moves out and finds refuge at the Glass House where she meets Michael, Shane and Eve. I really love the relationship between Claire and Shane, in a typical book they would be all over each other by the end, and I liked that Rachel Caine didn't do this. I personally have only really read vampire books were the vampires are good so I found it really refreshing that the vampires were the ones to fear. Overall this book is pretty good (I read it in one day), and I reccommend it for anyone who loves a good twist and a bit of action.
