Review
Where to begin, if you haven't read this series then now is probably a good time to start as all 15 books have now been released. Yes I said 15. Now, on paper this really shouldn't work as a story, it's completely bonkers and on more than one occasion you will have to do a double take and ask yourself 'Did that just happened?' But for some bazar reason, I really enjoy these books.

Okay so the jist of it is a sixteen-year-old brainiack goes off to college, a college that just so happens to be in a town run by vampires. However, after a couple of weeks of complete torture from the mean girl on campus Claire decides to move into the town rather than say in the Dorms.
Introducing Shane, Michael and Eve, aka the residence of Glass House.

Shane is the guy you will fall in love with, he's just enough bad boy to keep you interested with a sprinkling of wounded puppy to melt your heart. Not to mention a heap load of damn boy! As for Michael, he's a recluse who mysteriously disappears every time the sun comes up, also devastatingly attractive. Then we come to Eve, the goth with a heart of gold... She'll make you smile more than anyone else in the book. 

It's the perfect fantasy book, where the vampires are ACTUALLY vampires. Non of this wishy, washy, glittery crap. It has a series or twists and turns that will keep you guessing and reading into the early hours.

Oh, and heads up, if your going to read this make sure you have book two The Dead Girls Dance on hand for when you've finished. It's got one hell of a cliffhanger!




The Morganville Vampire's series is currently in the process for becoming a Web series. However at present there isn't a release date. So keep a look out: http://www.morganvilletheseries.com/index.html
