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.
Rachel Caine is honestly one of my favorite authors of all time. I’m shocked and immensely impressed that she can fit so much action and characterization and just general amazing-ness into one very small book.
Glass Houses never once dragged, or lacked in characters, or really anything bad. My only complaint is that it was too short! Haha. At least there are several more books after it. I really enjoyed this book.

Claire is such a well-rounded girl. She’s smart, occasionally sassy, and just all around cool. I would want a best friend like Claire. And Eve is great too, always with some smart-ass comment.

And let me tell you about the boys.

Yum.

Michael was every kind of sexy you could imagine, in a very “I-am-drop-dead-sexy-but-I-don’t-know-it” sort of way. He’s a dreamy blond haired guitarist with some mad skills, and he’s sweet and caring as well. And hot.

And then Shane!

WOO! I need more Shane in my life. I really do. I loved him to no freaking end. He’s my favorite character. He’s so funny and hot, and just generally…… hot. Haha.

The writing was great, the pacing of the plot was amazing, and there were so many things packed in their that you wouldn’t think could fit into only one book. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone! I give this novel 5 out of 5 stars.
