Glass Houses by Rachel Caine Review

Publication Date: October 3, 2006
Publisher: NAL Jam
Format: E-book
Page Count: 239 pages
Source: Borrowed
Series: The Morganville Vampires #1


It’s a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad comes 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. Hew 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...


It could've been done better. For one thing, maybe it should be a first person POV instead of a 3rd. I had high expectations for this because many people enjoy this series and I wish I enjoyed it as much as they did.

It wasn’t a huge disappointment, but it was lacking in character and plot. The writing is okay as I said, it should’ve been in first person point of view because I’d think it would’ve flown better for Claire saying ‘I’ or ‘My’ instead of she. It’s just a pet peeve of mine.

This vampire world is unique and different from the others so that was a plus. Rachel Caine does leave you with cliff-hangers in every book (that I read so far) in the series.

It’s hard to explain what this is really about but I recommend this to people who like the Sookie Stackhouse series. It’s kinda very alike in the writing style kind of way.

That’s all for this review. Au revoir and see you all next time.
