A Quick Tip by vampire_eyez

  • Jun 3, 2011
This isnt the most captivating or entertaining vampire series out there but what it looses in quality it makes up for in interesting plot twists. The first books a little dry up until the end where it takes some interesting turns, ride it out to the end, it proves its self worthy of progressing to the sexond book.

This was a ONE SITTER. You know open the first page, sit down and you don't get up until you are done. I had been dying to read this one, but something had always kept me away from it...now I'm dying to read the rest of the series like now. My hand fluctuating from the kindle BUY IT NOW button. I'll do it right after I write this review, most likely.      REVIEW: Claire Danvers is a genius, but super smarts doesn't save her from super psychos that are living in her …

Claire Danvers has lived on campus in small college town Morganville, Texas for a while now, and so far, nothing has agreed with her. Being the youngest enrolled student hasn't made her any friends, but making queen bee Monica look like a fool has definitely made her some powerful enemies. The danger extends beyond just the normal hazing rituals, and when Claire is shoved down several flights of stairs, she decides she's tired of being terrorized by Monica. She moves off campus into the Glass House, …

The first time I read Glass Houses was as an e-book a friend had sent me along with Book 2, Dead Girls' Dance. I had only read Rachel Caine once previously, one of her Weather Warden books, but hadn't been fully engaged by that book to warrent looking for others she had written. My friend was convinced however that I would love this series (it was just after I had lent her Twilight and began my young adult paranormal craze...that's still going on).    Love is perhaps too strong …

The first book in Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire series, Glass Houses, focuses on Claire Danvers, a sixteen year old genius who is early-admitted to college at Texas Prairie University. Claire's a misfit in more ways than one, and when she inadvertantly makes THE popular girl look foolish in front of her clique of friends, Claire becomes the vicious target of Monica Morrell. After several bruises and threats, Claire realizes she can no longer live in the dorm and seeks a room through an ad. …

About this book


Grade 9 Up—College should be an exciting time, but for brainy 16-year-old Claire Danvers that's too mild a word. Due to advanced placement, Claire can start college early, but her parents refuse to allow her to go to the distant Ivy League school of her dreams. She goes to Texas Prairie University where she is tormented by the popular girls—but that's the least of her worries. Morganville, home of the university, is also home to vampires and vampire hunters. Claire finds protection from the horrors of the town in the Glass House with three fellow outcasts, Goth girl Eve, rebellious Shane, and Michael, who disappears during the day. Claire falls for Shane and would do anything to protect her friends, including facing down bloodthirsty vampires and dangerous bikers. Rachel Caine's first two books (Penguin, 2006, 2007) in the series flesh out the characters and the setting, allowing listeners to really visualize the town. These suspenseful titles are filled with violence, language, and sensual situations. Cynthia Holloway's narration has a supernatural quality that is perfectly suited to the story, and she does a nice job of switching between characters and capturing the changes in Claire as she grows more mature and confident. Older teens will fall under Caine's spell as she weaves together scary moments with romantic situations, which are at times overly descriptive, but not graphic. Those looking for books likeTwilight, but with more bite, will enjoy this ...
