Description (from Goodreads):
It's a small college town filled 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. Hew 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...
Wow, the girls in this book are so mean! The popular clique at school is just as scary as the vampires. These aren't your vegetarian, sparkling, do-good vampires either. Yikes.
I have to say that I love the newer covers to this series! So pretty! The old cover for this book makes me not want to read it. Yuck! The new covers are so nice. Yes, I am a sucker for pretty covers. I totally admit it.
I liked this story. Overall, it was interesting and had a different take on vampires than the other ones I have read. It wasn't all that predictable, which I like.
I will definitely be continuing on with the series. I hope the next book has more of the vampires (I want to know more about them!) and more of a romantic connection. I feel like the romance in the this one needed some more stuff to back it up and it sort of came out if no where.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to see where the story goes!
