It's not a regular college, though. It's a magical college full of vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, sphinxes - and pretty much everything else you can imagine.
Despite the monsters, it's often human nature that threatens her life most.
Follow Zoe through four years of college as she grapples with danger, magic, and love. This omnibus includes the entire Covenant College series: Awakening, Whispering, Conjuring, Waxing & Waning, and Graduating.
Get ready for fun, snark, and a love that promises to last a lifetime.

Irritating Main Character and Slow Story
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Had the Heroine of the story not been so utterly annoying, and had the male voices been done better (the narrator makes the male voices sound like a child pretending to be an adult), the audible version would have merited an additional star. The non-MC girl voices weren't great either, but they were passable.
What was most disappointing about Amanda M. Lee’s story?
The story takes a long time to get going. The first 1/3 of the first book feels like a "Day-in-the-Life" of a college student. There's practically no reference to, or hint of, anything supernatural, so it's mostly college students partying, having sex and bickering.
Also, (****POSSIBLE SPOILER****) I really didn't like how the alleged date rapes were treated. It took far too long for Zoe (the main character) to intervene. (****END OF POSSIBLE SPOILER****)
Lastly, Zoe was just plain irritating. She often thinks she's being snarky when she's just being mean. She's bossy and judgemental--actually wishing bodily harm on characters that annoy her. It's unfortunate because the premise, a college full of supernaturals, is a fun idea. I'm not super excited to keep going with the series, but I'll give it a go. I recommend buying the omnibus over buying each story individually because you're essentially paying the same price and there's always a chance the storytelling will get better.
How could the performance have been better?
If the male voices had been done better (the narrator makes the male voices sound like a child pretending to be an adult), the audible version would have merited an additional star. It was difficult to relate to, and really care for, the characters because of this. The non-MC girl voices weren't great either, but passable. One of the girl's voices is done in a high-pitched, grating tone and the other is in this weird, languid tone. If the narrator had dialed the voices back a bit, they would have been better.
What character would you cut from Covenant College?
All of the characters have a role and add to the mix, making the story more interesting than if there were fewer characters.
Any additional comments?
Overall, the story is okay and fine enough to pass the time. If the main character, Zoe, wasn't quite so annoying and the narrator's voices weren't quite so irritating, I would have rated this a solid 3, or if it were possible 3.5 stars, but unfortunately, that's not the case.

I grew to love it
I almost gave up on this as the first hour is so boring but I was addicted after that. If you like supernatural and are a sucker for a live story like I am, and can overlook general failings in plot etc you can enjoy this! At first the characters are just very annoying but somehow grow on you. After that the only thing that bothered me was that there is sooo many unanswered questions in each book, thing suggested or stated but never resolved like the writer just forgot about it. But who cares after the initial 'this is so bad and my brain is dripping out my ear' it grew on me so much I just downloaded the second trilogy straight after so that says it all.
