Once Upon A Time University - Savannah Ostler

Once Upon A Time University is the sequel to Happily Ever After High. Although I think it could be read a standalone I think that you will enjoy this book much more if you read both. Once Upon A Time University is still following the story of Albany except this time as the title suggests she's at university. Having defeated her enemy at high school she surely has nothing to worry about at university? Wrong!

I absolutely loved reading more about these characters in particularly Cindy. Cindy (descendent of Cinderella) isn't the nicest person in Happily Ever After High but she really grows as a character in this book.

Whilst reading Happily Ever After High I really wanted to read more about the classes and the all round magical world in which Albany is now a part of. Once Upon A Time University certainly spends more time describing these things and to me that is what really makes this book. Every inch of the university campus is just full of magic so it is very enjoyable to read about it.

The book did have lots of twists and turns to try and keep you off the scent of who the bad guy is. Annoyingly, despite this I did figure out pretty quickly who it was. Did this stop my enjoyment of the book? Not in the slightest! However, as in book one, it was again a little frustrating that the climatic meeting between the pair was so short lived. 

I loved reading more about the characters and although some parts weren't too my completely liking, I'm fairly sure that if you ever loved fairy tales you will love these books! 

Synopsis - 

The enchanting sequel to “Happily Ever After High School”

After graduating Happily Ever High, eighteen year old Albany French was living the perfect fairy tale. She had her very own fairy godmother, a delightfully eccentric grandmother, and her boyfriend was her dream knight in shining armor.

At first, it seemed like a flawless freshman year for her at Once Upon A Time University. The campus was magical and enchanted, her classes were extraordinary, and she made surprising new friends.

A chain of unsettling events followed by a twist of fate sends Albany spinning. She is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life- one that could potentially break her heart. The perfect happily ever after was still within Albany’s grasp… or so she thought.
