Better than the first two books, but still not good enough to keep me hooked.

I have a weird relationship with Betsy, kinda love-hate. Sometimes I think she is funny and witty, but then there are other moments in the books where I just wish somebody would smack something really hard in her head. But now, at least, she has accepted her relationship with Eric, which makes me wanna like her a bit more. Eric is a sweet and lovely hero. Although I liked him much more in book 1 where he was strong, po

Another 2.5, although it was a bit more interesting due to a new character & plot line opening up. Easy listening on the commute to & from work. If I miss a few seconds, it's not a big deal. Definitely fluff, but entertaining fluff & Wu does a great job reading the parts. The characters have added a bit more depth, but they're still not popping. That might be part of the charm for some people since it tends to add to the humor.

Mary Janice Davidson is a master at creating fun characters and story lines that make you laugh aloud.
The first two books were silly fluff, with a largely unlikeable heroine but enough of a quirky setup that I was interested to read on. Train stops here, though.

Betsy becomes even more shallow, pigheaded and crass, if that's possible. Everyone else operates as spokes on her self-centered little wheel. Plot points are brought up only to be left as loose ends. Betsy's half-sister seems to be a plot thread, except that there's no real event or resolution involving her. Sinclair's an idiot who is app
I'm fairly patient with chick-lit (and vampire chick-lit) - I don't expect it to be unusually clever or well-written. It's just something to pass the time and make for incredibly light reading. This book was a little too fluffy and insubstantial for my tastes, but I was really bothered by a particular detail- the author writes intricate descriptions of the character's clothing and shoes... and the implication is clearly supposed to be that the character is shoe-obsessed and has good, albeit expe ...more

I love Betsy!
This time around, she learns she has a half-sister, Laura. Yay! Then she reads the Book of the Dead and goes insane. Boo! It turns out that a side effect of reading the book is a trip to crazy-town. Before she gets control of herself she manages to take a bite out of Jess and seduce Eric. Naturally, Jess is livid, and more than a little freaked out at Betsy for chomping on her. But it is Eric's suprising reaction to finding out Betsy was loco when they had sex that really sends our
Betsy is back with her usual charm. It has been a while since I read Undead and Unemployed Undead and Unemployed (Undead, #2) by MaryJanice Davidson, so I have kind of missed Jessica and Marc (Betsy's friends), Tina (another young-looking vampire friend), and of course the gorgeous Eric Sinclair.

In this book, Elizabeth Taylor the Queen of the Undead finds out that she has a long-lost half sister. Wait... that's not the surprise. This sister turns out to be the Devil's (yup, that one from Hell) daughter, and has been destined to take over the World.

"Undead and Unappreciated" is a fun addition to the 'Undead' series, although it's a very short read, a lot happens.

Betsy, the Queen of the Vampires, is a shoe loving, blood-obstaining vampire who drinks milk instead. However, because she's queen nothing harms her, including crosses and even stakes.

There is the Book of the Dead though, and after fighting with Eric Sinclair, she closes herself off in the library and reads for hours. But she ignores the warnings that reading too much for too long
“…you just never knew when a totally normal vampire errand would end in a bloodbath with severed-limb soap.”

'Undead and Unappreciated' is the third book of the 'Undead' series. Betsy's adventures continue, and finally she finds - I guess it's neither a secret nor a surprise - 'happily ever after' with Eric Sinclair.

I'm really surprised - almost stunned - at how much I'm enjoying this series, since I'm not all that crazy about most urban fantasy. But how can you not love a 6-months-dead vampire who turns out to be Queen of the Vampires AND who has a shoe fetish?! Granted, I don't even recognize the names of many of the expensive shoemakers, but Betsy does know an expensive shoe when she sees it, especially when the she-devil is wearing it (I jumped ahead just a little with that detail).

Betsy is still trying
Betsy hat es mit ihrem neuen Club nicht leicht, dass man aber auch immer das Hab und Gut desjenigen Vampirs erbt, den man umgebracht hat...
Und dann kommt es noch dicker, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, ihre verhasste Stiefmutter ist schwanger und sie erfährt, dass sie eine Halbschwester hat, die ungkücklicherweise die Tochter des Teufels ist, wobei die Verwandschaft über ihren Vater her rührt, die Mutter ist der teufel, der ihre Stiefmutter eine Zeit lang übernommen hatte. Das sagt doch schon alle
Okay I love the humor in this series. And the characters are soo likeable. I really like that it is very different from the other vampire books that are out there. And I can not wait to see what happens to the characters and how the main character deals with things that happen in her life. Yeah some of it tends to be way out there but the humor of it makes up for it plus the characters are so well written.
This series just isn't for me. I'm not into the whole funny vampires mixed with chick lit thing. And I couldn't care less or know less about the shoes Betsey is obsessed with. I tried the first one in the series a while back and it was OK I guess. I have the second one in audio that I bought before I knew these books weren't for me so eventually I'll listen to it since I hate paying the money for an audio only to never listen to it. This one I just happened to see at the library on CD and I need ...more
In this latest volume in the saga of Betsy, Queen of the Vampires, everyone finds out Betsy has a half sister who is also the daughter of the devil, so that’s super. Also, Betsy and Eric work on their relationship, which was hot. Plus, Andrea and Daniel from “Dead Girls Don’t Dance” make a cameo and it was to see them again. Marc doesn’t factor as much in this one which makes me sad because I heart him. I want more meaty info on the mythology of these particular vampires and especially more back ...more

These are cute books and wonderful when that dark cloud of depression settles over you. (Which is what seems to be happening this weekend.)

Betsy is still drooling over shoes and trying to learn how to rule the undead. The language is such fun. I have absolutely nothing in common with Betsy and I think that's part of the fun. I have NEVER worried about what my shoes looked like. (I'm more interested in how they FEEL.) The great addition in this book is a half-sister - who also happens to be the
Like the previous two books, I couldn’t put this down. I was intrigued with the addition of Laura and can’t wait to see more of that storyline. I’m also glad that a decision was made between Sinclair and Betsy.

My only complaint came from The Book of the Dead. I hated the scenes with Betsy after she read the book and her interactions with Jessica and Marc. One of the things I really love about this series is the friendship between Jessica and Betsy and I really felt the book suffered with their

I love these books! This series, is seriously awesome! I love that Davidson was able to create this amazing lead character that is a strong female lead but yet so simple minded and funny. And so, so very far from being a stereotypical vampire. The addition of Satan's daughter is also a really interesting choice, and a great one!
This story is all about finding Satan's daughter and dealing with the problem she poses. But she winds up being not at all what was expected.
Betsy is as blonde and ditz
There's nothing interesting or admirable about any character in this book. Even Sookie Stackhouse had talent, skills, charisma, etc. Betsey is just a dumb character who bounces around and lucks herself in and out of situations. Her "sass" is misplaced-- she just yells for no reason. I wouldn't want this character as a friend in real life. I don't want to read about her.

The author's editorializing about race seems like she has a serious chip on her shoulder. Why does she need to bring a conversat
Now this was better Queen Betsy is finally getting her groove on. It's about time damn it, Sinclair is a saint. Queen Betsy is starting to get with the program, taking her responsibilities as the Queen more seriously. Now this one is a winner.
In the third installment of the Undead series, we learn that Betsy has a sister, and that sister just happens to be the Antichrist whose name is not Damien or Adrian, but is instead, Laura. Laura Goodman, to be exact. While learning about the Antichrist, Betsy also takes a gander at the Book of the Dead and goes nuts, hurting Jessica and Sinclair and basically being a raging...*cough* Anyway, bad things happen, but she gains the benefit of being able to wake up before sunset which causes a bit o ...more

Encore un très bon tomes que j'ai beaucoup aimé ! Et Sinclair est toujours aussi ... *bave*
Mon avis complet :
Wendy ~M/M Junkie~
Besty finds out she has a half-sister who is the devils daughter, Litterally! Its so hysterical and Ironic at the same time. She is still having trouble controling vamps that are supposed to be under her rule.
This was the best book of the series so far. I liked that it had more action and a new character. I'm started book 4 today. Hope the series continue to entertain.
This series is good but not great. I'm not even sure I'm going to continue with the rest of the series.
Unappreciated is the right word for this one. Betsy discovers she's getting two new family members. One from the past and one in the future. On top of that nothing seems to go right. Her club is failing, she flips to the dark side and her circle of friends turn their back on her.

This one was different from the others, but I loved it. For one thing I cried a lot for Betsy. Yes I know she’s been jerk to Sinclair, but for him just to turn that easily makes him a jerk too (though he does give nice
Go ahead and judge me all you want, I love these books! I love Betsy, even when I sometimes want to smack her, I love Tina and Mac, I wish Jessica was my best friend and I think Sinclair is awesome! Everybook needs a Sinclair, whether for humor or for looks or for the sheer fact that he is completely devoted to Betsy, even though he wants to smack her sometimes too!

Anyway, these books seem to get better with each one, with this one a little more serious than the first and second book. So turns o

What to say what to say... Mary Janice Davidson never sises to make me, laugh, cry, and get serious all in one book. This bundle of joy series is one to read it will have you on your toes wanting more. I would consider this book a paranormal romance more then anything there are some parts that are mysterious and full of suspense but in the end the book just head off in the same direction Betsy's Love life. If you don't know Betsy then you would love to. You are really missing out... I don't want ...more
Betsy Taylor is still trying to adjust not only to being undead, but a Vampire Queen. It hasn't been easy; especially the not being able to eat meat and having to drink blood part. She also has to deal with employees of her nightclub Scratch and her attraction to her vampire consort Eric Sinclair. All of this is more than enough but she also has family matters to deal with - her stepmother (who hates Betsy) is pregnant and Betsy finds out that she has a half sister, who just happens to be the de ...more
The introduction to Betsy's sister, as the spawn of Satan seemed like it was going to be a really cool direction to take the plot. But I didn't expect it to be so uninteresting or unrevealing by the time I got to the end. I wondered for a little - did they leave out a few chapters? So, after reading all the way to the end, I have no idea what the implications of Laura and her being the devil's daughter is. Frankly, this installment, I could see made into a 60 minute episode. There wasn't much go ...more

“I—I adore you, too. Well, I don't know if I adore you. That's not really the word I'd use. But I—I—" I managed to wrench it out. God, this was hard! "I love you."
"Of course you do," he said, totally unsurprised.
"WHAT? I finally tell you my deepest, most personal feelings and you're all, 'Yeah, I already got that memo'? This, this is why you drive me nuts! This is why it's so hard to tell you things! I take it back.”
“He snarled at me. "This isn't over yet, Betsy."
"Excellent," I said. "I would also have accepted 'You haven't seen the last of me' and 'You'll regret this'.”
