Welcome to Morganville, Texas. 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’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.
As a fan of vampire books for adults, I was keen to see what author Rachael Caine had to offer younger readers. I wasn’t disappointed. This was a fun read, with interesting characters and a spooky old house I would love to live in. Atmospheric visits to the college library, as well as some spooky individuals in the coffee shop, made this an intriguing read and promising introduction to the rest of the series.
