A Fangtastic Welcome to Morganville Review with images

AdvantagesStrangely addicting storyline, interesting characters

DisadvantagesSome minor character flaws

"Glass Houses – Rachel Caine I have been a fantasy novel fan for many years and have read a wide range of books on this genre. One particular type of story I find myself drawn to is vampire novels, and so when looking for a new set of books to read, I came across ‘Glass Houses’ by Rachel Caine. I have not read any of this authors previous work, though as the set was already well established with ten books of the set already out, and armed with a ..." Read review

Glass Houses - Morganville Vamps book 1

AdvantagesI couldn't put it down

DisadvantagesCharacters didn't develop that much...but they will

"... The other people living at Glass House made this book for me. Shane is your typical tough guy. Gorgeous and strong but fun at the same time. The way that Rachel Caine writes these teenagers is so unbelievably true. The guys especially. Shane and Michael are quite obviously very into girls, playing on their X Box, shooting zombies and drinking when they get the chance. Never have I read such believable teenagers in a book of this genre. Shane doesn't ..." Read review

"...of the occupants of the Glass House. The Glass House already has three residents; Michael Glass, Shane Collins and of course Eve but they have a spare room and another resident makes the bills a little easier to manage. Eve takes pity on Claire and invites her in and the pair hit it off, however the boys aren't so keen on Claire staying. But things change and Claire begins to learn all about the secrets of Morganville and the fact that it is no ..." Read review

People in Glass Houses shouldn't insult vampires



"Claire Danvers has just started college, but for her the college experience isn't all it's cracked up to be . Already isolated because of the fact that she is younger than all the other students (she sped through a couple of grades due to being of above average intelligence!), she quickly finds herself falling foul of the college's queen bee, Monica Morrel, who also happens to live in the same run-down dorm. Monica and her harpies proceed to make ..." Read review

A book that sucks (in a good way!).

AdvantagesA slightly different take on the vampire genre.


"I have a real penchant for vampire books and films in whatever form they may come (any of you who has read my reviews before may well already know this fact!), so as my self and my sister have managed to collect a fantastic selection between us, we are now deliberately buying each other books that we would actually want to read afterwards (method in our madness you see!), with this particular book being one my sister got for me for my birthday, and ..."

"...me home a copy of glass house and said its meant to be a good read. This was back in2009. Its now 2013. And I have just started reading the series.
