The place in which Rachel Caine sets her series 'The Morganville Vampire Series'.
Set in Texas, it is a barren landscape with barely anything around them. It is secluded from other people, and if wanting to leave the place; you can't.
Claire (the socially awkward, 16 year old University student) moves there attenting TPU. Here, she meets Shane (the local hottie), Eve (the bubbly goth,) Michael (the owner of the glass house and the sexy musician) and Amelie (the bad ass vampire.)
Lucinda: Where's that book set?
Lucinda: Where's that...?
Clara: Texas, darling. But I'm not sure if it's real.
