Undead and Unworthy (Undead #7)
Since tying the knot with Sinclair, like hasn't been all marital bliss for Betsy. Sinclair has been perusing The Book fo the Dead, Betsy's being hounded by a ghost who's even more insufferable in death than in life, and a pack of ancient vampires has decided to pay an unwelcome visit.
So, this series is taking a turn towards being a bit more dark and depressing. Penis talk will do that. Oh, and the death of beloved characters. Not.cool.
MaryJanice Davidson prefaced the book with a note to the reader letting us know that this is the first book in a new story arc. Along with new cover art, it seems like the story lines have gotten a little sexier and lighter. But it just didn't seem to have that much substance to me. The past novels in the s ...more
The series is fun and mindless to read. Her last two books of this series were getting to a better story line yet without much plot. However, it just keeps getting better and better and I cannot wait to see what happens next!
Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It ...more
Betsy is still Betsy -- still childish, still prone to immaturity, still interested with having sex with her new husband as often as possible, still the new guardian of Baby Jon (although he's conspicuously missing from this installment), still back-and-forth with best ...more
I really like Betsy. I like that she tries so very hard. She thinks she's selfish and inept and I see a girl over her head and doing the best she can.
I am very much enjoying her grandpa. I hope his role continues in the next books.
Here's some ideas for future titles:

I read the Queen Betsy books for a quick, lighthearted read that leaves me chuckling. I don't want serious sub-plots or random new weirdo characters. I want fun!
The latest installment is much darker than the other books and I don't like it. Plus, the ending was HORRIBLE. I'm not going to tell you what happened because then this review will be ma ...more
While reading the book everything is still pretty much the same; Nick still hates Betsy, and characters were consist ...more
I'd prewritten much of this review (in my head, at least) before even cracking the book's spine. It was a well-planned metaphor about buying junk from the vending machine when you're not even hungry and eating it though it doesn't really taste good and leaves a greasy slime on your teeth.
Seriously, though, I couldn't have told you why I keep picking up the Undead books. They've never been satisfying -- too much chick, not enough lit. And though I've been accused (harru ...more
Garret the reformed fiend feels sorry for the rest of them and starts feeding them his blood. They slowly become more rational but then conclude that Betsy is to blame for their plight.
(view spoiler)[One of the fiends turns out to be Police Chief Hamblin's father and he gets his father to kill bad guys and sets a trap for Betsy by getting Nick involved. (hide spoiler)]
The Ant appears and haunts Betsy, and Sinclair and Tina continue to have secrets from her; Bab ...more
Having said that, I will still continue to read the next books, the past ones were hilarious and I've loved them so far, I'm hoping the next one will perk up some.
Undead and Unworthy is the 7th book in the Queen Betsy series. Mary Janice Davidson is another one of my fluff authors. Her books are enjoyable without requiring any thought. They're a great palate cleanser between books - they get you out of the world you were just in and get you ready for the next (hopefully) good book. Queen Betsy of the vampires has a shoe obsession - I mean, the books are really vapid with quite a bit of slapstick. If you like Janet Evanovich's humor in the Stephanie Plum b ...more
