The first thing I thought when I started reading this book was that I had missed one of the series. There were new characters (George the fiend has a werewolf girlfriend) and it appears that there has been a short story in between this and the last book. Very annoying as I don't read the short stories!!

This book is funny (there is a hilarious scene involving a zombie), but the overall story does not move on much. The European vampire threat does not feel like much of a threat and only one character has a change in their life.

Overall this is worth reading but I would like longer stories where the plot for the series is moved on a little more.

This is the fifth instalment in the "Queen Betsy" comedy series which combines chick lit romantic comedy and vampire thriller.

There are a number of memorable first lines in the series - the first book began with the words "The day I died started out bad and got worse in a hurry." This fifth book begins, as the heroine is approaching her 31st birthday and the first anniversary of her death (deathday?) with the words

"There's a Zombie in the attic."

Only in this series could the Queen of the Vampires open the door of her mansion to find her stepmother on teh doorstep, be handed her baby half-brother to babysit for the night, and be told "It's not like it's really an imposition right? You'll be up all night anyway."

That's at the same time as Betsy is planning a wedding when uninvited guests show up from Europe - very old, very powerful vampires - supposedly to pay their respects to the new Queen - and her best friend gets some very unwelcome news.

As with the first four books, this contains lots of supernatural plotting, parodies of vampire thriller stories, and ridiculous situations, particularly the incongruities caused by the combination of two rather different genres. The wacky sense of humour and new twists in the incongruous way the story mixes up "Sex in the City" with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" had me laughing out loud more than once.

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.

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.

I've loved all the books in this series until now - While I did read this one to the end, and enjoyed most of the story, I feel the books are starting to lose their sparkle. I love Betsy and Eric, but I am not sure if I'll continue on any further.

The books are entertaining but after the first few they lack any real storyline and I have a stronger sense that I'm just being buttered up to spend my money on the next book. I can probably skip to the last book and not have missed anything.

Once more Betsy Taylor Queen of the undead graces us with her presence. And once again this is easy on the brain, funny, annoying and addictive. As usual sinclair is skulking around and now Betsy has even more issues. I know these books are a little bit predictable but to me that is part of their charm. Having read Franz Kafka and Josepf Conrad, this is pure pleasure. Ideal for the 16 to 40 something's Christmas stocking
