About the Author
Rachel Caine is the New York Times bestselling author of more than thirty novels, including the Weather Warden series, the Outcast Season series, the Revivalist series, and the Morganville Vampires series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and, until recently, carried on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas, which so far as she knows does not actually contain any vampires.

I picked up Glass Houses because I had liked Caine's Weather Warden books, an adult-oriented series.
Within 60 pages of my trip to Morganville, I fell in love with Claire, her 16-year-old heroine. I read the first five books - the Bishop arc - in a weekend.
So here you have not a review of Daylighters, the newly released final book of the series. The book does, however, wrap things up nicely without rushing to an obvious conclusion.
If you haven't read the series this far, you're shouldn't be reading this review. (Go back to Glass Houses.) There are semi-spoilers here.
So this is more of an essay on our trip through Morganville, the Texas town you never can leave - because it`s run by vampires who won't let you leave.
Over the 15 books of the series, we follow Claire, a very smart but very young college girl, from innocence to growing, often courageous feistiness and stubbornness and finally womanhood.
On the way, we meet people and ex-people. There are her housemates - the vamp girl, the musician and the strong angry boy who eventually becomes her love interest. (That's horribly, unfairly over-stereotyped.) The four are as good a group of friends a person can ever find. You'll want to move in with them.
We meet a lot of vampires, good and bad. We meet an ice queen vampire dictator, and a supervampire. Then there's a mad-but-dangerous-but-fun vampire scientist, along with his brain-in-a-bottle and his pet spider, Bob.
We meet a crafty vampire who looks like an ex-hippie, a half ghost, and a ghost. We meet anti-vampire water creatures - in drier-than-dry Texas. Oh, and a sentient house.
We find that vampires can go in the sun - some of the time. We find wooden and silver stakes don't kill them, some of the time. We find they can get their blood from a blood bank- as long as humans contribute whether they're willing or not.
After about 10 books, I started to think I getting tired of Morganville and started leaving books in my "to read" list. But every time I picked one up, I was stuck reading it straight through.
In the end I had read 12 five-star and three four-star books.
And I send thanks to Rachel Caine (or Roxanne Campbell, her real name) for a lot of joy.
