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.
Overall Thoughts:
I was constantly entertained!!!

Glass Houses was about 16 year old Claire Danvers. She goes to Morganville to attend college because she's some kind of genius. But one of the disadvantages of going to college years before you're suppose to? You're smaller than everyone else. Claire is constantly getting hazed by the same spoiled witch: Monica Morrell and her groupies, just because Claire made the idiot girl look like... well, an idiot. One day it gets so bad that Claire decides to move out of the dorms and get her own place to stay. She finds an ad in the local newspaper about people looking for a roommate, so she jumps at the opportunity. There she finds the imperfectly perfect bunch, which consists of: Eve Rosser, the Gothic, perky one; Shane Collins, the funny, seriously hot one (He reminds me of Emmett Cullen); and Michael Glass, the owner of the Glass House, who's also pretty attractive, with a deep secret.

This book was fast-paced, even from the very beginning. I was thoroughly engrossed in it, so it took me no time at all to read it. There were a good amount of twists and turns in it that threw me for a loop. The ending left me gawking at the book in a very unattractive manner. It was like... the climax of a TV show, and you're so anxious to see what happens next, then they go to commercial... -_- Why would you tease me like that!

What I liked about this book:
It had action. It had romance. It had suspense. And it left me wanting more!

What I didn't like about this book:
I don't really like the cover, and... it left me wanting more. 

If you're a lover of paranormal books, I definitely recommend this book for you. It was a quick and easy read. It won't make you cry or anything, but it was most definitely entertaining.

The next book in this series is The Dead Girls' Dance, and it's already out!


If she were some kick-ass superhero chick, she'd probably be able to pick the lock with a fingernail clipping or something. Unfortunately, she wasn't a superhero, and she bit her fingernails.

No, she wasn't a superhero, but she was something else. She was . . . resourceful.

Standing there, staring at the lock, she began to smile.
