I am not surprised that this ninth instalment in the comedy series which combines chick lit romantic comedy and vampire thriller has been getting mixed reviews. It's very much a "marmite" book which some readers will like and others hate.

On the plus side, there's some new twists in the incongruous way the story mixes up "Sex in the City" with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" which had me laughing out loud several times. On the minus side it's a bit all over the place, particularly with a rather bizarre form of time travel which dominates the book, and you have to work hard to follow what's going on in places.

And in particular, the shock ending in the three-page epilogue will have made most readers who like the characters of Betsy and Laura feel they've been kicked in the stomach.

Without wishing to "spoil" the story in this book or the next one, let's just say that Betsy and Laura travel to the future - one possible future, anyway - and meet versions of their possible future selves. It's immediately obvious that both this future and the people they might become are pretty horrible, and the shock ending in the epilogue shows just how horrible.

In the next book Betsy will return home to find herself in a slightly altered timeline. It is not clear which timeline leads to the horrible future: our heroine is willing to take extreme measures to stop that future coming true, but is she in danger of paradoxically creating it through her efforts? We'll probably find out several books down the line ...

Elizabeth Sinclair, nee Taylor, (who prefers to be called Betsy) is a fashionista and former model, who to her own astonishment has become Queen of the Vampires.

I hadn't read any reviews of this before I picked up the latest installment to this series, the ending was therefore a shock.

I'm not sure whether the plot twist(s) introduced by MJD will either crush the series, or bring a new depth to it, but I can see why so many fans of the series were upset. This book firmly moves the series from slapstick fluff to dark comedy. Some aspects are made more disturbing simply because they are written by this author in this series.

The main premise is the sudden escalation of issues for Laura, and Betsy trying to help Laura deal with them a new job offer. With changes to Laura's talents emerging, what ensues is a bit of time travel. The time travel has all the major trappings we associate with it, namely how will Betsy's interferance change the future? And if it does should it?

Whilst I appreciated the glimpses into history (and the future) there were a few times when I was made to feel uncomfortable about certain characters and their potential development. I agree with other reviewers that that things just felt off and a bit sinister.

My main issue with this book is that the whole plot felt rushed and improvised, as if the author decided to tie up loose ends. Or just throw it in for crazy kicks. I actually want to go back to previous books and figure out if she had set this up all along.

I sincerely hope that in the next book Betsy will grow up and make some necessary changes to prevent certain things from happening.

I've loved all of Mary Janice Davidson's books and was realy excited when I realised the next Betsy adventure was out! Then, I read the reviews on here...

I was *almost* tempted to skip ahead and read the epilogue as it has seemed to cause such a fuss on here, but as I read the whole book in less than a day I didn't really need to! I loved this story. As with the rest of the Undead series it is pretty much what you would expect - Betsy obsessed with shoes, spouting witty one-liners and bouncing off her Antichrist sister as only she can!

To anyone else who finds themselves bring offput by the too harsh reviews here, please please please read this for yourselves and decide. I personally loved the epilogue!! It was shocking, horrifying and makes we want the next installment all the more.

I can only congratulate MJD on giving the series a kick up the backside (not that one was really needed). The type of people who find themselves disgusted at the epilogue and are even going so far as to throw away copies of MJD's work need to get a grip - maybe they've been reading the Betsy series for so long they've forgotten that it's a bit of lighthearted fun and that the characters are a work of fiction, it's not a biography! Although I suppose you run the risk of getting people too involved when the series runs on into double figures, but I say good on you MJD, I can't wait for the next book :)

Superficial and supernatural, hilarious chick lit novel. Betsy Taylor returns again in Davidson's book in the 'Undead' series. It's the same airhead, shoe obsessed queen of the vampires we met in the first novel.

Betsy is a former model and is still a fashion fanatic. At the start of the series, on the morning of her disastrous 30th birthday, she is working as a secretary. Her main interests are designer shoes, designer clothes, and her cat. In quick succession she gets fired, loses her cat, and is killed in a car accident. It is a great surprise to her when she rises again as a most unusual vampire. It is even more of a surprise when, through a sequence of bizarre events, she becomes queen of the vampires.

Needless to say vampire politics of the same nasty kind interfere with her life, but our heroine wins through in the end, displaying unexpected strength and compassion. A light weight book, but very funny.

Still laugh-out-loud funny. I raced through this book cover to cover, loving Betsy's ditzy and self-obsessed attempt to adjust.

For those who are not aware of the series, here the list of Queen Betsy stories I read to date:

1) "Undead and Unwed (Undead Series)"
2) "Undead and Unemployed (Undead Series)"
3) "Undead and Unappreciated (Undead Series)"
4) "Undead and Unreturnable (Undead Series)"
5) "Undead and Unpopular (Undead 5)"
6) "Undead and Uneasy"
7) "Undead and Unworthy (Undead 7)"
8) "Undead and Unwelcome (Undead 8)"
9) "Undead and Unfinished"
10) "Undead and Undermined (Undead/Queen Betsy)"

In my opinion you will get most out of these books if you read them in order.
