"Davidson's witty dialogue, fast pacing, smart plotting, laugh-out-loud humor, and sexy relationships make this a joy to read. And Betsy's second adventure, following her debut in Undead and Unwed, will have readers begging for more." (Booklist)
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.
Pretty much like book one. Betsy is still sarcastic. Too descriptive sex scenes, don't add to the story. Still a lot of fun.
So far I love these books, but dislike the narrator making the guys sound like young punk surfers. Good book.
Say something about yourself!
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.
Tell us about yourself!
Starting the book I was prepared to be disappointed - the valley girl meets old time vampire - one liners seemed a bit much.
But as I listened on, the story and the characters grew on me. The narrator is perfect match which greatly helps in making this a nice lite read.
I will probably listen to another in the series.
I'm really enjoying this series! I will give one word of caution: this book is STRICTLY for fun & laughs. Do not expect to get anything remotely meaningful out of this book. The author has purposely created a hilariously shallow protagonist. After all, Betsy refers to the Mall of America as "heaven" and acts as if a sales associate position at Macy's is akin to a job on Wall Street. But honestly, that's why this series has been so fun for me. If you're looking for the opportunity to escape the heavier stuff of life and just have a few laughs with an outrageous storyline, you'll probably enjoy this book. Plus her relationship with the hot & sexy Sinclair is both fun & steamy. I was a little hesitant about getting book 2 because I was a a bit dissatisfied with Nancy Wu's performance in book 1. But either she's gotten better or I've simply grown more accustomed to her narration style because I definitely enjoyed book 2 even more than book 1, and am planning on continuing to listen to the Queen Betsy series.
Not that I can think of off. It just didn't keep my attention.
I enjoyed the first book much more. The heroin seemed much to valley-girlish.
Nancy still cracks me up. I did enjoy her performance. Just the story was just "eh".
Not likely... Maybe if it was on DVD.
Yes, The whole series! The reader is delightful and the story line interesting and fun!
Her interpretation of the characture!
I LOVE this series! There are no deep plots and the series isn't destined to become fodder for high school English teachers, but it's light-hearted and hysterically funny. These books make me laugh until I cry and it's been a long time since a book has made me laugh out loud so many times that my child wanted to know what I was reading and if they could read it too!
