Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Janice Davidson has made listeners jump from their seats with her thrilling tales and roll on the floor with her biting humor. Her Undead books, starring sassy, fashion-conscious vampire queen Betsy Taylor, are a unique treat worth sinking your fangs into.

In between running her vampire nightclub and hunting down the perfect pair of shoes, Betsy learns her long-lost half-sister Laura is actually the spawn of Satan. Complicating matters, prophesy states that the devil's offspring and the queen of the vampires are destined to rule the world together. Breaking the news of world domination to her newly discovered sibling might be a bit more difficult than Betsy imagined.

Dying for more? Don't miss the other titles in the Undead series.

    "Cute"

    I liked this series alot. It's fun and shallow, and Betsy has some hilarious lines. The narrator's interpretation of how Sinclair speaks is kind of dumb, but you get used to it. If you enjoyed Southern Vampire Mysteries, you should like this too.

    "A Fun Series"

    Betsy is starting to get a handle on the whole "queen of the vampires" thing she's been saddled with (it does, after all, tend to come with some great shoes), and then her evil stepmother announces she's pregnant.

    Thing is, this leads the sinfully sexy vampire king to tell her that her sister is destined to be favoured by Satan, and Betsy can't make the baby shower because it's during the day.

    Filled with the usual fantastic inner monologue of Betsy, this series continues at its frenetic pace, and leaves you laughing all the while. I really applaud Davidson's ability to keep the series light and funny while introducing a few more wonderful secondary characters, and spinning a much wider plot net. I'm curious to see where it all goes. As always, there's the sexy vampire king to be Betsy's annoying (and arousing) counterpoint, and her best friends and mother always chime in with some great lines as well.

    "Still a Super Fun Series!"

    This book was just as nutty as the previous two in the series. It has a great cast of characters, from a mouthy BFF to a crazy step-mom. Betsy, the vampire queen, continues to be tragically yet hilariously shallow & dimwitted. The Betsy and Sinclair dynamic is still fun & steamy. Plus Betsy finally gets her head on straight about how great a catch Sinclair is. In this book, Betsy finds out that not only does she have a sister, but said sister is the spawn of Satan. Only MaryJanice Davidson could manage to make that into a funny scenario. I laughed the whole time at Betsy's wild antics, but also found myself wanting to know what happened next. Bear in mind that this book, and the other ones in this series, are purely for fun. Also, Nancy Wu's narration is somewhat lacking. Someone like Amanda Ronconi would have been perfect. But you grow accustomed to Wu's narration style.

    "Funny Turned Annoying (series)"
    Any additional comments?

    I've read many vampire books and I'm always looking for a good series. When I read the first book in this series I thought it was hysterical. I laughed out loud many times at Betsy's rants and witty comebacks. The second book in the series was easily my favorite and I fell in love with other characters like Mark.

    But by the third book I found myself fast forwarding past the rants I use to find funny. The main character Betsy just starts to become extremely annoying. The constant "poor me" rants and whining started to drive me crazy. I only made it to book 7 before I couldn't take what the main character had turned into anymore.

    I don't regret the first couple credits I burned on this series and if you're still digging it by book 3 you may just end up liking the whole series. Enjoy it for the mindless entertainment.

    "Love It, then it was over"

    This was a really great listen. The narrator does a wonderful job, the charaters are great, and it was building an interesting storyline, then it was done. Boom, just like that mid-story it was over. Nothing was brought to closure, just over. It left me confused.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Getting better"

    This installment is one of the better ones of the series. Laura is a good addition to the series.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    "Betsy cracks my up"
    What did you love best about Undead and Unappreciated?

    I love that she's in Minnesota. I'm originally from MN and its awesome when the author puts her in places I know. It just makes it that much cooler. Plus, Betsy is just to darn funny. But, I will say the finale is pretty darn good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There is something about every character I like. This is definitely an ensemble piece.


    Which character – as performed by Nancy Wu – was your favorite?

    I swear that Nancy Wu is so good you can hear Sinclair's eyes roll.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. But I did listen to large chunks at a time


    Any additional comments?

    I loved these books. (you notice I used the past tense) There is a point in the future where I dislike where the author went with the story. I actually stopped reading the books and this was in my top 10 favorites. I am only mentioning this because I think it is only fair you know in the begging that this series takes a crazy turn at book either 9 or 10 I can't remember. By reading other reviews, I am not the only one who feels this way. But, the books up to that point are hilarious. So, reader be warned. You may like the direction it takes later, you may not. I feel better that I let you know.
