I love the Undead series and couldnt wait for its arrival. When i finally got it from Amazon there seemed to be very few words to a page and they were in very large print.
I think MJ didnt put enough effort into this book like she did to the others that were released when Undead and Uneasy was published. I am currenty reading the latest Jennifer Scales book (which was released around the same time) and it is a very in-depth and entertaining book. It is the length i would expect it to be, unlike Undaead and Uneasy which is very short and has no depth to it.
I just feel i was waiting to get into the story and it ended before i did.
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.Read more ›
The first book in this series, "Undead and Unwed," told in the first person by Elizabeth Taylor who prefers to be known as Betsy, began with the words "The day I died started out bad and got worse in a hurry." That was the heroine's disastrous thirtieth birthday. It was a surprise when after being killed she woke up again in the morgue as a most unusual vampire. It was an even bigger surprise when through the strange series of events narrated in this book, she became Queen of the Vampires.
But becoming a Vampire Queen has not affected Betsy's interests or her attitudes: she can (and does) listen to or even repeat herself the Lord's prayer without being harmed, visit churches and touch a crucifix or holy water and not be harmed. And Betsy most certainly has not gone over to the side of evil, though she still has a great weakness for designer clothes in general and designer shoes in particular ...
Over the first five books of the series Betsy has gradually built up a support network of friends both human and supernatural, come to terms with her powers, and survived a number of challenges from mortals and rival vampires alike. But in this sixth book that support network falls away and she has to face her biggest challenge on her own ...
(BTW, that isn't a spoiler, because Mary Janice Davidson gives this information in the "letter to readers" at the start of the book.Read more ›
In this book, she has no one else to turn to to fight her battles for her. She's not nearly as annoying as she has been in other books. She fights the bad guy by herself and defeats it without the help of Sinclair or Laura or anyone else.
I think this book was superbly written and was a great read.
