It's been 3 months since Betsy killed vampire nasty Nostro and reluctantly assumed her role as Queen of the Vampires (see Undead and Unwed)... in short it's time to get a job and earn some shoe money. By chance she lands her dream job selling designer shoes in Macys; despite the fact her new boss Mr Mason feels her sales technique a little unorthodox. Betsy views each pair of shoes as her own exquisitely stitched creation and is loathe to see any leave her protective sphere. Beware all shoppers in scuffed trainers!!!
As termites invade her home, Betsy finds herself moved into a huge mansion; a residence her non vamp friends Jessica and Marc feel suitably reflects her new royal status. Queen Betsy now has plenty of room to entertain large numbers of the undead, including the luscious Sinclair and his feisty sidekick Tina. Oh and let's not forget the resident ghost, a 5 year old cutie named Marie that initially only Betsy can see (another Queenly power foretold in The Book of the Dead - a power she can and does bestow on her friends to prove she isn't going mad). Betsy really needs to read this book!!
When helpless (??) vampires start getting staked in the streets, Betsy is informed that as their Queen it is her duty to investigate and put a stop to these murders. When she obliviously wanders into an ambush set up by a group of human vampire-hunters named The Blade Warriors, she doesn't have the common sense to be afraid. Instead she openly mocks their name before complaining when they shoot her - in fact Betsy spends much of her time in this book being shot at, doused in holy water or staked. Her week gets progressively worse when she realises that the individual killing her subjects must be another vampire.

I can't believe how addicted to the Berkley Sensation 'Undead and...' novels I have become. I literally put down the first novel then ran into my nearest bookshop demanding for the next copy. They're fantastic to read and Betsy Taylor is such an ass kicking girlie with such great comic attitude meets Buffy's 'taking myself oh so seriously - not'. I simply love it and I really want to read more. I am sucked in I didn't think I would be but I truly am. I generally saw myself as an avid Anne Rice and Tanith Lee gone vampire goth but oh no this novel is a breath of fresh air from the standard scary dark bone chilling but slightly weirdly romantic vampire novel. It's a laugh, a romantic and action packed laugh with teeth. Put me out of my misery and give me another story, please. Pretty please with icing and chewing gum flavoured lippy on top!

Superficial and supernatural, Betsy Taylor returns again in Davidson's second book in the 'Undead' series. Still laugh-out-loud funny, my only criticism of this one is that is seemed rather rushed at the end, leaving several loose ends that were tied up in only a few sentences. Nonetheless, I still raced through this book cover to cover, loving Betsy's ditzy and self-obsessed attempt to adjust.

Buffey she ain't. Alicia Silverstone should play Betsy Taylor in the film version of this hilarious chick lit novel. It's the same airhead, shoe obsessed queen of the vampires we met in the first novel trying to hold down her dream job in the shoe department at Macys. Needless to say vampire politics of the same nasty kind as last time interfere, but our heroine wins through in the end, displaying unexpected strength and compassion. A light weight book, but very funny.

Format: Paperback
I have to say that I found ‘UNDEAD AND UNEMPLOYED’ to be much more entertaining than it’s predecessor ‘UNDEAD AND UNWED’. While I enjoyed ‘UNDEAD AND UNWED’ I found the main character Betsy to be excessively irritating and the story, although funny at parts, to be a bit predictable. However, in Mary Janice Davidson’s second novel in this series, Betsy is still somewhat irritating but not excessively so and the story was much better thought out adding a bit more mystery to the story. Also new and interesting secondary characters were thrown in with the very charming vamps Sinclair and Tina (my favorite characters in both books) making for an even more interesting read.
While this series may not gotten to a roaring start for me it seems to be getting better with every novel and has the potential to be very good if Betsy tones down the sarcasm a little and Davidson turns up the romance between Betsy and Sinclair. This is an amusing and very likable series and I look forward to reading the next installment and in keeping with the theory of each one being better than the last, I am hoping ‘UNDEAD AND UNAPPRECIATED’ will garner a 4 star rating but for now this one gets 3 ½ stars!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This entertaining vampire romance is the second of a series which incongruously combines chick lit romantic comedy and vampire thriller. Think "Sex in the City" meets "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," from the viewpoint of a new vampire.

The book begins with a police record of an interview with a taxi-driver, who describes how he witnessed a supernatural attack, and how a mysterious, tall, very pale, and very beautiful girl had driven off a vampire. Those who have not read the first book will have no idea what is going on, but those who previously read "Undead and Unwed" will recognise Betsy Taylor from the description.

It continues the "Queen Betsy" comic vampire series, in which the initial group of stories consists of the following six books:

1) "Undead and Unwed"
2) this book, "Undead and Unemployed"
3) "Undead and Unappreciated"
4) "Undead and Unreturnable (Undead Series)"
5) "Undead and Unpopular (Undead 5)"
6) "Undead and Uneasy."

There is also a "Queen Betsy" novella, set at about the same time as book six, in Davidson's collection "
