"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)
Did the other reviewer listen to the same book I did? I absolutely love this series, and have listened to all 5 multiple times.
I love this book because Queen Betsy **is** such a shallow, vacuous "valley girl" type. It's funny & I think the narrator does an excellent job of portraying Betsy in all her vain & shallow glory.
The whole series is great. The series is a combination of Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Stephanie Plum. Lots of fun.
I have almost completed the entire series and because I just keep starting the next one, my reviews are getting behind. The banter is funny and Betsy is so self-centered that you can't help but love her. The narrator is excellent and keeps the book alive.
Be sure you read the books in order, or you could get lost on the references.
What a fun and humorous read!
This book was great. I'm going to listen to others by the same author. Granted, it is not informative or a heavy read- something I could listen to on a good run.
Just as good as the first, I am still loving this series. I am all ready on book three and cannot wait to read more.
I would definitely read another story from both MaryJanice Davidson or Nancy Wu. I love Betsy. I love this story. Somehow, this one didn't leave me as excited as the first. It was a good performance but the problem for me lies in the "already been there" in book one story line. I will listen to more in the series, but won't hold on for much hope as far as a different experience story wise!
Yes, Betsy is a breath of fresh vampire so to speak!
She brings voice to the characters that I think suits them, but she could do better with males! Her reading style is easy to listen to.
Yes, I see this as a movie or tv series and I could've seen Alicia Silverstone doing this, but now it would have to be a younger actor with her acting chops. Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Hayden Panettiere, Anna Sophia Robb, Ellen Page or Dakota Fanning.
Great story, but lacks interesting adventure. I love Betsy's character still stays true to herself throughout the story. I really wish the books were much longer!
A great sequel to the first book, and a lead into what promises to be a great series. Betsy was again true to her nature as the slightly-ditzy/annoying heroine, but she's lovable, and I didn't really see the plot twist at the end coming.
The story was worth listening to despite the sub-par voice acting. Most of the characters sounded the same, and it was hard to tell when Betsy was actually speaking versus making sarcastic comments to herself. I'm hoping they'll eventually get someone new to read!
I just love this series it is so enjoyable. It isn't really a serious book it is more humerous than anything. The main character has a great personality and I just love the characters in the book. The narrator does a fabulous job. I plan on listening to all of them eventually. I wait till they go on sale because they are not very long books I would rather not waste a credit on short books.
I enjoyed the story. I laughed a lot. Betsy is funny. I could do without the cursing. But, overall it is funny.
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
Ms. Davidson is good at making Betsy just ditsy enough to make her funny. Its a good thing that her friends and Sinclair have a lot of patience.
I liked them all. The whole book made me giggle.
I can't imagine the book without Nancy Wu. She is the voice of all of these characters now.
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.
