Book Description

31 Aug 2004 Berkley Sensation (Book 2)
And the first who shall noe the Queen as a husband noes his Wyfe shall be the Queen's Consort and shall rule at her side for a thousand yeares.' The Book of the Dead. 'If that rat bastard Sinclair thinks I'm going to be his wife for a thousand years, he's out of his f***** mind.' From the private papers of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, Empress of the Undead, Rightful Ruler of the Vampires, Consort of Eric I, Lawful King. Nothing can make Betsy Taylor give up her shoe fetish - even dying and rising as the new Queen of the Vampires. Only being royally undead doesn't mean there aren't still credit card bills to be paid. Things couldn't be better - except for her new friends who keep pestering her while she's at work. As if she has time to socialise when there are deliciously sinful shoes to try on - and buy at a discount. It seems there's been a string of vampire murders in town and they're all clamouring for Betsy to do something about it. The worst part is she'll have to enlist the help of the one vamp who makes her blood boil: the oh-so-sexy Eric Sinclair. Only the last time she ran into Sinclair she accidentally fulfilled an ancient prophesy - and ended up married to him

4.0 out of 5 stars The unique reign of Queen Betsy continues 7 Feb 2005
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Davidson 3 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm biting my nails for the next one! 14 Jan 2005
By Blue B
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clueless has risen. 23 Nov 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funnier 4 Mar 2006
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars BETSY IS STILL IN FINE FORM! 22 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
BETSY TAYLOR IS STILL "UNDEAD" AND STILL UNEMPLOYED.
SHE DECIDES TO GET ANOTHER JOB - AT THE "RE-EMPLOYMENT" CENTRE.
WHILE SHE WORRIES ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD TO GET HER BELOVED SHOES, VAMPIRES ARE BEING KILLED AND HER "SUBJECTS", INFORM HER THAT AS SHE IS THE QUEEN OF THE UNDEAD - WHICH SHE STILL CAN'T GET HER HEAD AROUND - IT IS UP TO HER TO FIND OUT WHO IS KILLING VAMPIRES AND WHY? - THAT UNFORTUNATELY MEANS,SHE HAS TO HAVE THE HELP OF THE DELICIOUS AND VERY SEXY VAMP - SINCLAIR(yum,yum) .
THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!!! - BETSY LANDS A DREAM JOB WORKING IN THE SHOE DEPARTMENT AT NONE OTHER THAN MACY'S.
THIS IS ANOTHER FABULOUS BOOK FROM 'MJD'. THERES PLENTY HERE TO GET YOUR TEETH INTO (sorry!!). TERMITES,A NEW HOUSE,A GHOST,A DERANGED AND JEALOUS VAMPIRE AND THE DREADED STEPMOTHER - WHO IS PREGNANT.
THIS IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST, IT'S FULL OF LAUGHS AND VERY ENTERTAINING.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
