"Can we please have one midnight getaway without having to talk about Marc's penis?

Apparently not.
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.

Another fun romp with Queen Betsy with the wonderful Nancy Wu making it a lot more fun. There was a brief synopsis of the events that led up to this book, but Davidson still wasted a lot of words recapping. I hate that. This is pap. If I picked up the series from this book, I really wouldn't miss anything without the recap. It's just not that complicated. Spending 5 minutes telling me the back story on a character is not needed & plain boring.

Undead and Unworthy is the continuing story of Betsy (the Vampire Queen), and her gang of friends. It's the seventh book in the series, and unfortunately I felt that it was one of the weakest.

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

4 Stars:
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

MJD points out in her introduction that the new cover of UNDEAD AND UNWORTHY reflects the new direction that this book and the two upcoming ones will follow; a mini-story arc within a story arc. Frankly, I'm not all that thrilled.

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

I find it very interesting that I am enjoying the sequels more than the original book.

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.
Schön, das es endlich eine Geschichte für die Biester gibt.

Ich habe weniger gelacht, als in den Büchern zuvor.

Irgendwie war mir das Buch zu traurig am Ende.

Started this book a few days ago and hate it! I read the whole series up to now and I'm walking away. The first two books were cute and fun. The third was pretty entertaining as well. The series should have stopped there. The author insists on rehashing past story lines at the beginning of each subsequent book. If a reader is stupid enough to pick up book 7 without reading the prior books, too freakin' bad! They can catch up on their own time.

Here's some ideas for future titles:

Mary Janice Davidson, step away from your computer! Take your silly "trilogy within a series" and toss it out the window. It's a terrible, terrible idea!

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

I've read the reviews before and found this book disappointed most of the readers. I, however, wasn't really disappointed. I don't take the Queen Betsy stories seriously because I'm in it for the laughs - and laugh a lot I did. If you're looking for some story with depth and character development, I suggest you pick up another book. I just want to read something mindless sometimes.

While reading the book everything is still pretty much the same; Nick still hates Betsy, and characters were consist

I hate pleasant surprises.*

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
This one was all about the Fiends.

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.

At the beginning of this book MJD addresses the reader and mentions that she's taking Betsy in a new direction (a new story arc) and that this and the next two books will comprise a trilogy within a series. I personally do not see what this arc might or might not be and this book seems to be just more of the same to me. About the only thing I see different is that Betsy is starting to loose a little (and I do mean a very miniscule amount) of her "blondeness" and standing up for herself and her r ...more

I love Betsy, Sinclair, Jessica, Tina, Nick and the rest... I even love babyJon when he's teething... however, this episode lacked something that all of the other books seem to have had.. It didn't contain the 'umph' and it felt a little like a chore to continue reading it...

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.
Objectivement, l'histoire n'est pas très élaborée et l'héroïne est épuisante à être aussi ridicule. Toutefois, je conserve un certain attachement pour cette série sans prétention. C'est léger, drôle et facile à lire, ça me distrait juste ce qu'il faut ! Et puis, j'ai enfin compris qu'il fallait la lire à dose homéopathique, pour ne pas risquer l'overdose. Betsy, c'est bien ... mais sans en abuser.

Ho hum. That's how I felt about this book. MJD says the series is starting to move in a new direction, but I'm not sure this is a direction that actually works. Betsy is becoming more serious (although never completely) and two people actually died. It's just doesn't at all have the same feeling as the first book, which I really loved. I'll probably keep reading the series, but I won't be so eager to get my hands on each new book.
Cindi (cheesygiraffe)
Best book of the series. I like the direction MJ has this book going in. It's less romance, except for the opening scene and that was funny, and more kick butt. I think Betsy finally is learning she's in charge and is going about the right way now. I'm glad the fiends, that are left, are back to their own selves. What's next for Betsy? I can't wait to find out.

Jun 25, 2017 Lois rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
I was torn between 1 and 2 stars. The biggest reason this book was a dud is because Betsy didn't care about a character that's been invested in (Alice) and was invested in a character that comes out of nowhere in the series (Antonia). Davidson does a recap of previous storylines/character developments in every book to remind us where we left off. But EVERYTHING related to Antonia is from a book that's outside of the series, and there's no recap for those of us who haven't read it! In my opinion, ...more

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

Sometimes you just need a mindless book or 7... If you can get past the typos, this is a fun series.
