College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. 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.

I know this series has been out for awhile now but I just sat down and started to read it because I got Ghost Town in the mail for review (yes when that happens I read the WHOLE series) and I needed to get the background, at nine books in you kinda have to read from the beginning.

I love that Claire is a fighter and I definitely though that Clare would have gone for Michael instead of uh....someone else, I really did. I hate Monica (even though I was shocked at first every time I read her name) she was a very evil villain, the kind you just want to kill off.

I enjoyed this new (or well older but new to me) twist on a vampire YA. I also love the inclusion of the house, it's lore, and the extra-ness in one of the roommates. I also loved that they stood and fought with her, it was one of those wriggly happy moments of reading. I am continuing on to book two and I can't wait to keep reading more by this author.

  2. I just bought a bind-up of the first two books - I haven't read them yet... so you aren't the only one who hasn't read this series. I am glad you liked the first one though :)
