Glass Houses by Rachel Caine

"Really, really scared. What she'd seen in the Monica Mafia's eyes today wasn't just the usual lazy menace of cool girls versus the geeks; this was worse."

Another supernatural series, I hear you say. Withhold your judgement, my penchant for the paranormal is a fancy I cannot deny. There is something so seductive about yet another town full of ancient vampires and hidden secrets. Throw a genius of a 16 year old protagonist in the mix and you have yourself a winner.
I devoured this with a rapacity reminiscent of a thirsty vampire recovering from a bout of vegetarianism. This first instalment is a mere morsel and I'm determined to enjoy the full menu  - I wonder how many novels this one consists of, a quick search tells me 15- that seems like a bit of a commitment.
Like any good series this gives just enough to peak your interest and leaves enough questions to keep you seeking out the sequel. No doubt I will. I did happen to want just a wee little bit more from it - hence my score.
4 out of 5 haunted youths cry you shall not pass when vampires stand at the door.
