Morganville Vampires

"'Run first,' Shane said. 'Mourn later.' It was the perfect motto for Morganville."

Claire just moved to Morganville, Texas to attend college. After a nearly fatal encounter with the resident mean girl, Claire finds a place to live off campus. In her new digs, Claire learns that Morganville is a tiny town with a very big secret.

A coworker recommended I read the Morganville series because I've been in a bit of a horror rut. While I wouldn't classify Morganville as horror, it is a refreshingly new take on the vampire genre. Rachel Caine reinvents vampires and the world they share with humans is quite different from the more mainstream vampire novels. The way each characters strengths and weaknesses motivate actions and reactions will enthrall readers. At times I despised both humans and vampires alike and that is quite rare for me. Granted, there isn't much gore or thrills to really scare you but I highly recommend this series to adults and teens alike. You'll get hooked on the Morganville series just as I did!
