Voted the NUMBER ONE MOST POPULAR book with children in 2013
Book 1 in the New York Times and UK Bestselling Morganville Vampire series
Welcome to Morganville. 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 come out fighting when the town`s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.
Fun, fast-paced and utterly addictive, this is the first book in this bestselling teen vampire series. A must-read for all Twilight fans!
What The Critics Said
'This book was one big pleasant surprise... It’s quirky, it’s fun, it’s fast-paced, and it’s even a little haunting and sad in parts, and it includes some excellent twists I did not see coming...I loved every second of it and devoured it in a day...It takes a lot to impress me in fiction but Glass Houses managed it...And the characters! Oh I fell in love with all of them...
I recommend you give Morganville a try if you haven’t yet...and it is definitely worth paying full price for. This is not your average teen vampire series, it has a great story with loveable characters and is thoroughly enjoyable.'
'I LOVE this book. I LOVE this series. I LOVE vampires...I assure you, this is a book worth reading.'
'We’d suggest dumping Stephenie Meyer’s vapid Twilight books and replacing them with these.'
'I genuinely enjoyed reading Glass Houses. I was annoyed when I had to close the book and realised that I should have bought the second one too...you know, just to know what happens next!This is a cracking good read aimed at the urban fantasy young adult market. I am sure, however, that everyone who’s read Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden series would enjoy reading this... It keeps the vampire genre fresh and fun because the lore is being re-invented and re-worked. Although there are elements of romance (how can there not be with two such lovely sounding hotties) it does not turn into anything remotely obsessive or weird, which seems to be the way a lot of other YA novels are going. It is kept light and sexy, with no scenes I would be uncomfortable to read out loud to a class of pupils and parents... Highly recommended, especially if you buy the UK covers as they glow in the dark!'
