Book Description

4 Jun 2009

Having recently lost her dad and stepmother, Betsy Sinclair (née Taylor) is adjusting to rather more than just married life. Their untimely deaths have left her and Eric as sole guardians of her little brother, Jon. Two vampire parents - albeit vampire royalty - for a decidedly human baby. Still, Betsy is more than up for the challenge. If only everyone would stop being so nervous around her, given her sudden recent burst of power. Betsy most emphatically Does Not Want To Discuss It, and for the moment, everyone is following her lead.

But then the ghost of Betsy's stepmother turns up at their house. And as stubborn and insufferable as she was in life, she's even more annoying in death - especially as she regards her demise as all Betsy's fault!

By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
This comedy vampire thriller is number seven in a series which combines chick lit romantic comedy and vampire thriller - from the viewpoint of the new and particularly incongruous Queen of the Vampires.

Imagine a cross between "Sex and the City" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and you've roughly got the idea.

The plotlines of the first six books were more or less resolved in number six, "Undead and Uneasy" so this book, "Undead and Unworthy," kicks off what Mary Janice Davidson calls a new "story arc" which was originally supposed to be a trilogy but is now up to six books. The full list of Queen Betsy stories to date is

1) "Undead and Unwed"
2) "Undead and Unemployed"
3) "Undead and Unappreciated"
4) "Undead and Unreturnable (Undead 4)"
5) "Undead and Unpopular (Undead 5)"
6) "Undead and Uneasy"
7) This book, "Undead and Unworthy"
8) "Undead and Unwelcome (Undead 8)"
9) "

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay- but not as good as the others 31 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like the undead series, despite the fact that they are often much too short to be a called a book. They are irreverant, funny and enjoyable to read. I love the characters of Betsy and Sinclair in particular. None of that has changed, but this installment of the story just doesn't match up to the rest.

It centres on Betsy's decision as to what she must do about the Fiends but I found that I just couldn't really get interested in the plot of that particular storyline. The side issues were far more interesting- Nick's animosity towards Betsy, Jessica being torn between Betsy and Nick, Sinclair and Tina disagreeing with Betsy's decisions, Garret's guilt and self-doubt. The ending was something of a shock but it was hashed out quickly across two pages so it didn't have the impact that it could have. One thing that has totally disappeared from the plot is Betsy and Sinclair's ability to read each others' minds. I used to really like that. It was the only time that you had any insight into Sinclair's feelings but it's gone suddenly. It doesn't happen, isn't mentioned at all and I think it's a bit of a loss.

Davidson states in the foreword that this book is the beginning of a trilogy within the series. I can't help but think that I would have been happier to wait longer for a new book if she would put the three stories into one proper length book. I'm sure that would have been a more satisfying read, because it often feels as though she abitrarily ends the story after 200 pages just so that she can put it in a separate book.

It's still worth a look if you want to keep up with the story but it's not as much fun as the others. I'm going to keep on with them because I like the characters so much, but my patience is starting to wear a little bit!

4.0 out of 5 stars hilarious 11 Feb 2009
betsy is adjusting to married life and being a parent to her baby bro. so when life becomes quiet some disaster occurs to shake her world. his time her dead stepmother "the ant" appears to her as a ghost. also the fiends from the basement get free and try to kill betsy and her friends. back on form davidson has written a great story which has the original humour of the first novel, many of the following on novels were less than stellar in my opinion. welcome back!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Undead and Unworthy 31 May 2010
By AngelGoneMad VINE VOICE
Undead and Unworthy is the seventh instalment in the Queen Betsy series by MaryJanice Davidson. Once again there is action, humour and some ludicrous outbursts from Betsy, although Tina throws a mean tantrum too.

I absolutely loved this book, I think my favourite part of the book by far was chapter one. Once you read this you will understand and I don't want to ruin it for those of you who haven't read it yet. All I can say is Sinclair and Betsy are left very disappointed.

The Fiends make a reappearance in this book and it's not in a friendly way. Luckily Betsy knows what to do and sorts everything out. I thought it was good to revisit the Fiends as they weren't mentioned much in the previous book.

Betsy's powers are a no go area of discussion in this book for her and it seems that everyone else is staying off the subject. I feel bad for Betsy here as she doesn't know where the powers came from or how to control them if she accidentally calls on them.

I think this book is appropriately named. Betsy feels unworthy for all the things her friends does for her, unworthy to be a queen to the vampires as she doesn't think she is helping them, unworthy of Sinclair etc etc. Basically Betsy is sort of wallowing in self pity for part of this book until she snaps out of it of course and kicks some butt.

There was a really nice moment where Antonia the werewolf defends Betsy and I thought this was a very loyal thing to do. The ending was rather unexpected and I didn't like certain parts of it. I can't really say why or else it will spoil the book for you.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to read a serious in depth plot paranormal novel.
