Goodreads Summary: Welcome to Morganville, Texas. Just don’t stay out after dark.
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 many signs of life. But they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.
I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages, and finally got around to reading it! I’m glad I did, because I really liked it.
I really liked the plot. Vampires running the town, and needing their protection in order to do anything worthwhile in town? Definitely interesting. The plot moved along really well, and just when you think you have things figured out, something would come up that would make you wonder why you thought you had things figured out.
Ass for the characters, I really liked Claire. She did feel a little young, but she was a freshman in college at 16, so that might be why she seemed so young. But I wanted her to be okay, and protect her. Plus, I could definitely relate to Claire in a lot of ways. Eve was cool, Shane is interesting and I’m ambivalent towards Michael. Maybe Michael will grow on me as I continue to read the rest of the series. I hated Monica, and she needs to go away.
I could picture Morganville so well, and I thought Caine put a lot of thought into the characters, the plot, and the world. I can’t believe I’m only reading this series now, but the other 11 books will be keeping me busy!
I give it a 4 out of 5. It was fun and enjoyable.
