Story Overview:
In Molly Harper's newest paranormal romantic comedy set in her beloved Half Moon Hollow, a vampire princess must learn how to navigate life as a college student - including living with her messy, annoying, frustrating new roommate.

Ophelia Lambert, 400-year-old vampire princess and college freshman, suddenly finds herself domesticated by humans and forced to suffer the indignities of dorm rooms, communal bathrooms, and a roommate with sticky fingers.

As one of the hundreds of undead venturing into postsecondary education, Ophelia has a lot more to learn than just "undead studies" - she has to learn to get along with her fellow vampire classmates and, worst of all, her human ones, along with getting back into the good graces of the World Council for the Equal Treatment of the Undead.

Can this once all-powerful vampire princess balance classes and campus life with romance, human and vampire relations, and not sinking her teeth into her annoying roommate?
 
My Review:
Overall: 3.75
Performance: 4.5
Story: 3.5

This is a very short story and going into it, I wasn't sure how much I would like it since Ophelia is one of the protagonists for the vampires throughout a lot of the Half-Moon Hollow series. She was the Vampire Princess with a serious power-tripping ego...until she met Jamie and he mellowed her...oh, and Jane took her down a few notches. 

Now she's at college with Jamie, trying to figure out how not to be an evil warlord princess and instead make friends and influence people...something that does NOT come naturally to her. LOL.

I enjoyed this quick audiobook. Watching Ophelia become more "human" was actually nice. I liked her transformation and the fact that she did it on her own, instead of Jamie forcing her into it. 

This is a quick little story and there were a couple of things left that weren't tied up, so it will be interesting to see how those play out in future installments. But overall, I liked it and definitely recommend the audio. Amanda Ronconi always does an incredible job narrating.
