Welcome to Morganville, Texas. Don't stay out after dark

It's a small college town with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad comes 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.

Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. The popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks on the school's social scene : somewhere less than zero. And Claire really doesn't have the right connections - to the undead who run the town.

When Claire heads off campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. her new roomates 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...

What I think

Need some action? Romance? Suspense? This book is made for you. The writing is agreeable, the style is simple. The vampire theme is handled with originality. Welle vampires are the bad guys, but it's good for your health to change ppint of view from time to time. They're everywhere, they control everything, but fortunately you can outsmatrt them too.
Don't worry they're not behind you, only in Morganville. The main characters (Claire, Eve, Shane et Michael) are endearing, even though there's a lot of mystery aroun Michael who lives only at night. The plot is completely addictive, from start to end, not a single slowdown. And of course, because I love that, a bit of romance;o)

But hey! You've been warned, think to buy the second book too, The Dead Girl's dance, otherwise you're going to spend sleepless nights wondering what happens next...
