Publisher's Summary

Morganville, Texas, is a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad come 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. 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.

The Start to a Really Really Long Series

I picked up (clicked, I suppose) this audiobook because 1) I'm on a vampire kick and 2) it was on sale for $7. Was it worth $7? Yes. Is it worth a credit or anything above $7? No.

A Few Good Things:
The vampire-theme is different than usual. I appreciate that their vampire world is centered around one town, and anyone who leaves said town loses their memories about vampire business. This was a unique aspect to spice up the story a bit.

The characters of Shane and Eve were enjoyable. I found myself smiling at a few of their jokes.

The Bad Things:
While I was amused by some of the characters (two to be exact), I did not care about the rest - including the protagonist! There are a few seriously suspenseful scenes, I just didn't care one way or another if the characters died! I hate that.

Claire's situation is too unbelievable. She is a super-smart 16 year old in college who is seriously bullied. She was literally pushed down a flight of stairs, and no one did anything about it. I understand this because the town is terrified of the vampires, but what I can't understand is WHY she would choose to remain in the town?! The author attempted to clarify it by saying Claire never gives up on her education, but it was ridiculous.
1. She didn't want to go to the college in the first place; she wanted to go to an Ivy League.
2. Her parents practically begged her to come home.
3. Her life was literally in danger.

It seriously annoyed me.

Other than that, the rest of the story was enjoyable. It wasn't enough for me to continue to purchase the rest of the series; even though the ending is COMPLETELY cliff-hangered. Just saying.
