Book Description

College was supposed to be all about booze and boys. For Zoe Lake, though, it's all about monsters and mayhem.
An incoming freshman at Covenant College, Zoe is excited to meet her roommates and attend classes. There's only one problem: Covenant College isn't all it's purported to be.
First off, there are attractive -- yet mysterious -- men skulking around every corner. Then there's that persistent professor that thinks he knows some secret about her past that even she isn't aware exists.
Then there are the rumors. You know the ones. The ones that say Covenant College is home to more than just humans -- but vampires and werewolves, too.
Not only is Zoe going to find herself in the middle of madness -- but she's going to have to try and pass finals while she endeavors to solve the mystery of what a monster really is.
Note: These books are full of sarcasm and are a little bit snarky -- so read only if you like to laugh and like your paranormal with a little bit of fun. This is the first book in the Covenant College young adult series.

    About the Author

    When I was a kid, I was torn between whether or not I was going to grow up and be the Incredible Hulk or Wonder Woman. I flirted with being a Jedi Knight for awhile, but I wasn't up for the intense travel associated with the gig. In my teens, I settled on being a writer -- although I had no idea the effort that would entail. Not only am I a writer now, but I'm a writer in several different mediums. I'm a longtime newspaper reporter, an avid reader and a voracious science fiction fanatic. Follow me on Twitter at @yodaoneforme.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 29 May 2014
    By J Gore
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Having read the 'Wicked Witches of the Midwest' stories I was looking forward to reading more books by this Author but I was disappointed in this novel. The plot was longwinded and boring with a very unoriginal storyline. College girl being recruited for killing vampire and warewolves ring any bells??? Alot like the series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Dont think i will be wasting my money on buying the second book in this series. Younger readers may enjoy this book but it wasnt for me.

    Wasn't sure if I was going to like this but decided to give it a go as I love the author's other 2 series. Am so glad I gave it a go as they kept me engrossed and entertained enough to read in one day.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining YA Paranormal Romance/Mystery 28 Jan. 2014
    By PURPLE JEWELS - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Awakening was an entertaining read, however, I could have done with the constant bashing of the Twilight series. A Series, I might add, that I actually liked better than this book. Don't get me wrong, I thought that this story was pretty good but I think that it just tacky for one author to bash another and it made me respect Ms. Lee just a little less.

    I had just finished reading Book 3 in Lee's Wicked Witch of the Midwest series, which was pretty good, and decided to check out her other titles. I rarely read YA books anymore (too tame), however, after I read the synopsis for this book and noted the supernatural elements I decided to give it a shot. The plot isn't overly original,(Mythos Academy is better) but it was engaging, the pacing is good, I liked the main character Zoe, and I liked the setting, as well as, the supernatural beings and witches. There's a little mystery, humor, a little romance, smoking hot werewolves and a scrumptious vampires (I'm a vampire girl). The character development could have been better but so far I have found this complaint true of every book that I've read by Ms. Lee. Nevertheless, I found the story entertaining enough that I plan to read the next book in the series.

    Under amazon's rating system 3 stars means "It's ok" and since I thought that it was okay I gave it 3 stars.

    Lastly, I have to address the comment, by one reviewer, that the main character was a slut. Unless my understanding of the definition of the word is incorrect, I don't think that a young women who has sex with her boyfriend of 4 years and comments on the "hotness" of a couple of other guys but doesn't sleep with them constitutes a "slut." Come on, if one is going to make an observation or comment about a book and/or character it should at least be accurate.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fun that's not so 101 18 Dec. 2012
    By Basbenee - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Lee's written a highly entertaining and very funny mystery about a Zoe Lake, a freshman who soon discovers her college career is going to be more than keggers, dating drama, and exams. Along with man trouble and crazy roommates, Zoe is dealing with supernatural foes and forces. If you're a fan of Buffy, snark or fantasy/horror, you'll love this.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected 23 Nov. 2013
    By Doc - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I found this author through her mystery series (Avery Shaw Mysteries). I enjoyed those so I read her Wicked Witches of the Midwest Series. Those were great. So I tried the Covenant College Series. They are a departure from the other two series and are quite a bit darker though still not as dark as many of the Paranormal Vampire Werewolf tales.

    The writing was what I would expect from Ms. Lee. I was a bit surprised to see it was classed as a young adult novel. Some of the material covered was a bit more graphic than her other series. There is still some humor and some snark but the series is not a light and funny as her other efforts.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 15 Feb. 2013
    By Big Louie - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is aimed at teenagers, but I think it has a lot to offer adults, too. It's a paranormal mystery with characters that are flawed and not perfect. Zoe Lake is a normal college student with abnormal problems. Not only is she strong and funny, but so are her roommates. This is clearly being set up as a series and I'll definitely check out the second one. If this first book is any indication, it should be a good series.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Good Grief! Not Her Best... 29 May 2014
    By Cadance Renene - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I am so glad that I have read all of Amanda M. Lee's other books before I read these two books because if this series had been the first one of hers that I had picked up to read, this would have certainly been my last. Yes, ladies and gents, this is trash. There are numerous grammatical, syntax and editing errors through out the book. For example, the words astronomy and astrology are used interchangeably throughout both books. The quality is horrible, it's almost as if the author main-lined caffeine over a long weekend and vomited the book directly from her head right to Amazon. I read books not just for the story but also for the use of words as an art form. These two books are an insult to readers and to the author's fan base. As others have said, the main character has no redeeming qualities and the first person point of view does nothing to improve the glacial pace of the book. There are several glaring loose ends that are left dangling and really put me off. These loose ends are never really resolved in the sequels to date, by the way. My recommendation is that both books be pulled and edited heavily. For those of you that read this, I do encourage you to read her other books / series. They are quite good (when compared to these two).
