Reviewed for Wickedly Bookish

This was a fun, fast read. Caine offers a new and interesting take on vampires and their interactions with human society.

Claire is a 16-year-old prodigy surviving her freshman year in college at TPU Texas Prairie University in Morganville, Texas. After getting herself into trouble with the campus it-crowd, she looks into renting a room at the Glass House. There she meets her friends and learns that there is much more to surviving life in Morganville than going to class and dodging the homicidal gossip girls.

The one thing I really like about this book, is that Caine lets you get to know these characters as Claire builds friendships or rivalries with them. She doesn't make it overtly obvious who Claire's romantic interest will be right off the bat. You really get a chance to know who the characters are as people first before the main character starts romanticizing them. Sure Claire notices the boys are attractive, but not more so than any other teenage girl would.

The plot is interesting and keeps your attention until the end. Top it all off with a horrendously unfair cliffhanger and you've got a great series starter.

50.0% "This will be a very quick read. Interesting enough to keep my attention so far and the characters are deep enough to be endearing. The writing and tone is a bit juvinille for a girl who skipped straight to college at 16, but still enjoyable. I like how the Caine has made it vauge on who the love interest will be. Its nice to get to know that characters as friends first before you start romatisizing them."
