Morganville Vampires

Welcome to Morganville.
Just don't stay out after dark.

Morgaville is a small college town filled with unus
ual characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad come out. Because in Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows - one that will spill out into the bright light of day.

For Claire Danvers, high school was hell, but college may be murder. It was bad enough that she got on -the wrong side of Monica, the meanest of the school's means girls, but now she's got three new roommates, who will have secrets of their own. And the biggest secret of all isn't really a secret, except from Claire: Morganville is run by vampires, and they are hungry for fresh blood . . .

The Morganville Vampire books is written by Rachel Caine, she's also the author of the Weather Warden- and the Outcast Season series. The first book in the Morganville Vampire series, Glass Houses, was released in 2006. Six books are released so far; Glass Houses, The Dead Girl's Dance (2006), Midnight Alley (2007), Feast of Fools (2008), Lord of Misrule (2009) and Carpe Corpus (2009).

The seventh book, called Fade Out, will be released on November 3.
After that, five more books will be released during 2009-2011.

A kind of unique thing I like about the Morganville Series is that neither Claire, the main character, nor her romantic interest, is a vampire. That's actually quite refreshing! There are vampires in these books of course, but most of the main characters are human.
Another thing I like about this series is the characters - all characters are very well-developed - and you either love them or hate them. I especially fancy Claire and her three closest friends, Eve, Michael and Shane. I would love to live with them in the Glass House!

I actually only read the third, fifth and first book in this series so far - bad I know. It proves that you can read these books as stand-alone books, but I wouldn't prefer it! I'm pretty bummed about not reading these books in order - and being so far behind. It's a great series, so I would love to catch up!
