I have found another amazing new teens series about vampires by Rachel Caine. I went to Rachel Caine’s website to find out more about the Morganville Vampires series and found out that there are 5 books in the series with the 6th book coming out in June of this year. I read the sample chapter of the first book in the series, Glass House, since there weren’t any blurbs and it seemed it would be a good idea to get a feel for what I was going to read before I buy the series. I was instantly hooked after reading the first chapter of the book even though there were a few grammar errors in the chapter posted on the website. I found out that I can reserve a copy of the books through Barnes and Nobles website at my local BN and I was lucky enough when they e-mailed me that they had all 5 books there and I could pick it up the next day.
After practically devouring the first book, Glass House, was excited to get started on reading the second book, The Dead Girls’ Dance, to find out more about Claire and her three friends. Claire Danvers has her share of challenges because being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains has been tough on top of having to deal with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. But on the up side, she has a great roommate named Michael, who tends to disappear at sunup, and a new boyfriend named Shane…whose vampire-hunting dad has called in backup. They are cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything including humans who have any connections with the vampires they so hate. Now there is a fraternity throwing its annual Dead Girls’ Dance and to Claire’s surprise she and her equally outcast best friend, Eve, have been invited though it seems kind of suspicious. When they finally find out why they were invited, all hell is going to break loose because this time both the living and the dead are coming out—and everybody’s hungry for blood.
This series just keeps getting better and better because the action and suspense just gets kicked up a notch higher to make me want more. Claire is such an intriguing character because I really never know what she is going to do next though she seems like a goody-goody genius she has so much more potential that not everyone sees. I also really think her new developing relationship with Sean is going to really turn into something that might really last but there are definitely going to be many bumps on their road to making it work. Getting to know more about Michael was really fun because I definitely didn’t see him being a ghost instead of a vamp coming and I really think that Claire’s relationship with both Michael and Eve is a wonderful thing for her now that she knows more about the town she’s living in. By the time I finished this book I was so captivated with Claire’s life in Morganville I immediately picked up the next book because for some reason Rachel Caine loves to end the book in cliffhangers that make you crazy to get your hands on the next book. I give this book 4 Open Books:

Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
