I'm not a huge fan of Claire, our MC. I was Team Shane, but am now firmly Team Michael. Also, I love Eve, Amelie, and Myrnin. Myrnin is one of the most interesting characters in any vampire book/series, I've read. Is he crazy? Possibly. Maybe only sometimes.
I enjoyed the first book and the second more. I really liked the third one, as well. Things get more complicated, and, of course, more interesting. The fourth and fifth were only okay for me. I hope they pick back up. I want to like them more than I am.
If you aren't burnt out on vampire books, these are pretty good. They definitely have some interesting differences than your typical vamp book.
Welcome to Morganville, Texas.
Just don't stay out after dark.
College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the schools social scene: somewhere less than zero.
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 fresh blood.
Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains; homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overrun with the living dead. On the up side, she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls' Dance, hell is really going to break loose.
