From the author of the popular Weather Warden series comes the debut of an exciting new series set in Morganville, Texas, where you would be well advised to avoid being out after dark.
College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. 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. Will she be able to face the town's terror or will she drown like everyone else?

Claire Danvers isn't your typical college freshman. She loves physics, doesn't hang out with people, and is only 16. Or, as she would say, 16 and a HALF. After she gets bullied one too many times by the popular girls at school, she decides she needs to leave her dorm. She finds a new place to live: Glass House. She's initially unsure of her new roomies, but she eventually becomes friends with them.

After moving there, she learns about that Morganville is run by vampires. She learns that although the town appears to be normal, but she figures out how to keep herself safe with the help of her new friends.

I liked her. Sure, she wasn't really confident and unsure of herself, I thought she was great. She knew what she wanted to do. I hope she becomes stronger in the next books.

For a Goth girl, she was pretty peppy. She always seemed pretty excited. She did have her emotional moments, but she was a great best friend. I also thought her crush on Michael was cute.

He was a great guy and really protective of his friends. He would so anything to keep them safe, even though he didn't make smart choices of how to help them. I'm pretty sure he's interested in Claire, and I can't wait to see where things go!!

He's really mysterious and can never be found during the day. Everyone only sees him at night, and he never leaves the house. But Claire accidently learns his secret; he's a ghost. She promises to not tell anyone else. But towards the end of the book, he tells Shane and Eve his secret.

Overall, I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens! I hope things work out between Claire and Shane and Michael and Eve. I know a lot of people don't like this series too much because there are 15 books, but I want to read it and then see how I feel.
