Another dumb, but fun, trip through Queen Betsy's life. Several things come together at the end that make it slightly better than the last couple, but this will never be a top notch series. Still, Nancy Wu does a fabulous job of turning the drivel into a pleasantly distracting narrative for my commute. On to the next!

The errors and typo’s have improved. The Queen Betsy Series is very funny and entertaining. A great lighthearted read that will make you smile, giggle, and laugh.

I read the first two books in this series back in 2004. I know, that was ages ago. I loved Undead and Unwed so much I gave it an A- at All About Romance. I loved the sarcasm and the over-the-top superficial heroine and the in-your-face sensuality all of which wasn't overdone yet back then. It was a case of the right book at the right time. I was burning out on traditional romances, after having read too many in a row. I wasn't as thrilled with Undead and Unemployed though. It seemed...more

If you're looking for a fun read to finish before bedtime, UNDEAD AND UNEASY will do the trick. It only takes about two hours to read from first page to last, and you'll get in a few laughs along the way.

Betsy is still preparing for her wedding to Vampire King Eric Sinclair, but this time there are even more complications than usual -- Jessica is still sick with cancer, some people close to her have ended up dead, Tina has been sent to ease ruffled vampire feathers in Europe, and the King himse...more

OK, I'll admit it - Queen Betsy is my guilty pleasure, and I don't even have her shoe fetish!

This story has more angst than previous books, in good part because of the author's intro letter. After reading that, I was a bit apprehensive, wondering which of the main characters was going to be killed, so I reached the final pages with a combination of feeling displeasure/pleasure at what happened to whom.

Loved the werewolf pack! I'll bet we see more of them - at least we'd better!!

I liked this book WAY better than the last one. Things were kinda lame and boring in the last book. I rarely laughed at a single moment, so I didn't have high hopes for this book. I was just praying that things would pick back up and I was pleased that this book upped the standards.

There wasn't much Sinclair in it for obvious reasons (the dude's missing), so I was suffering from a bit of Sinclair/Betsy interaction withdrawal. I felt like this book was more about Betsy as a character and how she'...more

Recommends it for: hardcore Undead series fans only (and then with reservations)
I'm hard pressed to give this two stars. I gave it two only because I am so fond of the other books in the series. I don't know what happened with this one, but it was simply awful.

Betsy is normally a fun character. On the surface, she is always self-centered, childish, and a bit ditzy. What redeems her -- normally -- is her concern for others, her sense of humor, and the fact that she is actually no dummy. In this installment of the Undead series, Betsy spends close to two-thirds of the book c...more
Another fun read with Betsy and her friends/family and werewolves (yes, they join us in this one)!

Jessica is ill and yet MaryJanice Davidson manages to bring in the fun side of Betsy and her caring side all in one... I was rather worried but with the unexpected 'expected' (I know I know) ending, it turns it all around!!!

Things happen that I certainly didn't expect in this book and the 'penny' dropped when Betsy works something out... and this helped me understand what I thought was going to have...more
Hoo, boy, is there a lot happening in this book. The wedding is finally going to happen and yet everyone seems to be missing. Jessica is in the hospital with worsening cancer; The Ant and Mr. Taylor are dead from a car wreck leaving Betsy BabyJon's guardian; Dr. Taylor is busy with school and is trying to Teach Betsy a Lesson About Being an Adult; Mark has a mystery hook-up (to me one of the weakest parts of the book); Sinclair and Tina are also missing and that's where Betsy starts to realize t...more
The summary is probably going to be longer than my review.

I feel like such a slacker when I review these books. Honestly people, there’s not a lot to say about the Undead series. It’s a vampire beach read, or popcorn book as someone else called this type of ‘entertainment value only’ book. Really, it’s a ‘no intelligence required’ book.

Just as with its predecessors, Uneasy has the same quirky and funny characters. And again, there is a central problem Betsy has to resolve amidst other secondary...more
These books lately just seem to be missing out on what I loved so much about the first couple - the spunky humor with Betsy. Trying to add in serious elements mixed in with the fun-loving Betsy just doesn't really work as well together. I did like this one better than the previous volume (but since I pretty much hated that one, that's not saying much) and I will continue reading but I wish the feel of the first book would return.
Book 6 is the new best of the series IMHO. This Book seemed so short because I reached the end so fast. When you can not wait to get back to the story, you have a winner. Never saw the villain in this one until the end. Very good read. On to book 7.

Uneasy! Yep, that's how I felt while I was reading this book. I couldn't wait till I finished it. It's not funny! I don't see the appeal and found it in many ways crude. The only thing I liked about the book was the cover. :(
Rachel Jayme
First book I read in the series. Liked it so much that I had to track down all the before and after books! I think I've read them all.
Cynthia McCloud
I really didn't have to think to breeze through this. A friend told me the brain needs some candy once in awhile. This'll rot it for sure.
Besides the first book this is the best of the series so far!

Review in Portuguese from Brazil

Série de livros da Rainha Betsy começa com o livro "Vampira e Solteira" Undead and Unwed, só pelo título você já pode imaginar que tem muita comédia durante os acontecimentos do drama desse livro.

Descrição: Bem começa num dia ruim que vai de mal a pior e então como se não pudesse piorar, Betsy morre. Bem ela acorda a funerária e está apavorada, tenta cometer várias vezes suicídio de formas que, aparentemente, não funcionam, isso continua até ela se dar conta de qu...more
According to MaryJanice:
"Everything in the Undead universe has been leading to this book (say it with me: poor Betsy!). Yes, there has been a method to my madness. The support group she has so carefully, if unconsciously, been building around herself, that I've been building for her, is about to disappear."

Sooo... yes, I think this is the best book of Undead so far!
And yes, I like how Betsy finally can have a little bit of suspense and real kick-ass, instead of whining all day about constant cra...more
A lot of unexpected events here and true to the author's promise, you'll feel uneasy too but you will enjoy it. I trusted her words and so should you. This is her most serious Undead novel and I have to admit I got anxious but like MJD said, tragedy and conflict are part of living, or in this case, undying. I appreciate what she did in this book, without the serious problems, it wouldn't be a colorful and roller coaster ride. It just developed the characters and their relationship with each othe...more

The thing to love about this book is the voice of the narrator. Betsy the Vampire Queen is an outspoken, sarcastic, foul-mouthed little hothead. She loves her friends, she loves cute shoes, and she loves being the center of attention. Whatever she said or did, it was going to come out snappy. But for me that was just about the only thing to love about the book. It mattered that this was the first undead book I had read, and it was in the middle of a series. Sometimes you can dip into the middle...more
As preparations continued for the wedding of the Queen of Vampires and her King, Betsy Taylor founder she was not just having to deal with all the arrangements herself, but everything. Everyone had deserted her. Some of them had good reasons even if Betsy hated to admit it, but most of them just disappeared like they were hiding from the Bridezilla she felt she was quickly becoming. The only thing that kept bugging Betsy was that she really didn’t think that Eric Sinclair (her absent bridegroom)...more
Ce tome se démarque des précédents. En effet, si dans le tome 5 l'histoire était quasi inexistante et ressemblait plus à une pause, Betsy nous revient ici au mieux de sa forme.
Dans ce tome, Betsy est au coeur de l'intrigue. le début du tome est plutôt léger dans la ligné du précédent mais très rapidement, l'histoire prend de l'ampleur et devient un peu plus sombre et sérieuse.
C'est à la fin de ce tome que Betsy va enfin devenir la reine des vampires. La plupart des autres personnages étant absen...more
Undead and Uneasy, the sixth installment in Davidson's Queen Betsy series takes place a few weeks before Betsy and Sinclair's wedding ceremony. As usual Eric Sinclair is not interested in wedding preparations, something he is going along with to please Betsy. After all, they are consorts and already married according to the Book of the Dead (a vampire guidebook of sorts), but Eric is participating in this human ritual so that she will feel that she is really married (Sinclair tricked Betsy into...more

Undead and Uneasy is the 6th book in MaryJanice Davidson's Betsy Taylor series. Betsy Taylor is the Queen of the Vampires. She really doesn't want to be a Queen. She didn't even want to be a vampire. She woke up one morning to find that she was dead and had been turned into a vampire. In the big Book of the Dead, it prophesied that she would be queen and her consort would be the delectably sexy, Eric Sinclair. Sure enough it comes true and now Betsy is planning her wedding to Eric. Betsy is abou...more
Un très bon volume avec du suspens et pas mal de réponses aux questions que l’on se pose ! Tout le monde a disparu et Betsy met juste trois plombes à se poser la question de savoir où ils sont tous et pourquoi ils ont disparu ? Ce volume qui change totalement des précédents n’est pas lassant même si il n’y a quasi qu’elle dans le volume. Au contraire, moi qui disait qu’il faudrait qu’il se passe plus de choses, qu’il y ait plus de gens et tout j’ai trouvé ce livre vraiment bien ! Il se passe qua...more
Well the first 3 quarter of this book is in a mess, not that the author did something wrong, what I mean is Betsy's life, more and more questions/problem throwing at her. The biggest problem among all, is that Betsy is getting married (ok, we are human, so we are going to ignore what the dead bible says ;))next week and the groom is no where to be found, even worse, they have a big fight before Sinclair gone missing. I gave 3 stars instead of 4 cause SINCLAIR IS MISSING for almost the whole book...more

This is the sixth book in the Besty Taylor "Undead" paranormal romance series (and I can't believe the second one I've read this summer. For a quick sum-up, check my past entries for Unead & Unpopular).

Betsy & Sinclair are getting married, despite the fact that they have been vampirically married for almost two years. Just days before running down to the Justice of the Peace to make it official in Betsy's eyes, her father & stepmother die in a car accident. This instantly makes Betsy...more
