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 come out fighting when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood….

Would you consider the audio edition of Glass Houses: The Morganville Vampires, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

on par with the print version. a very entertaining story wonderfully performed, A different voice for characters makes it very easy to follow.

What did you like best about this story?

what i like best about the story is the originality of it. the characters are really well thought out. the story's slow but interesting which escilades towards the end

Which scene did you most enjoy?

the scene i most enjoyed is Claire's first meeting with Amelie. it's a very dark atmosperic scene.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the book can be quite moving when Claire's bullied by Monica and her friends which leads to the story

Any additional comments?

the story, although slow at times is like a rollercoaster ride, funny, sad and a lot of suspence. i love Rachels writing style, simple but effective. the thought into the characters is top class, and there's some really good characters who Katherine brings across to the audience really well. a really good listen, which i listen to again and again..
