Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

"Sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Davidson's chick-lit foray into the paranormal is delightful." (Booklist)
Well, this is the funniest book I have listened to in a while. It is laugh out loud funny. Betsy is the first vampire with excellent taste in shoes, and even dead, comes to get them back from her step-monster. Breaks every vampire rule out there. Ann Rice, move over!
If you would enjoy seeing how a self absorbed Valley Girl would react to becoming a vampire this book is for you. It's definately light reading. The reader for this book in my opinion did an excellent job changing her voice to the charactors and situations.
This book could have become the same old tired stuff of its genre, but its not. It is quick, lively and really, really funny. It will be worth your time, if you have a slightly skewed sense of humor.
It took more than two hours of listening to get to any real humor in this book and by then I was ready to stick a stake in my own heart! But it redeemed itself and became an enjoyable read. The narrator was so boring I almost couldn't stand it, but I needed something not very distracting to listen to, so this did it.
First things first, I love the Undead series. Betsy is hilarious, snarky and downright shallow at times. The story would gets 4 stars but Nancy Wu's reading of the book just annoyed me to all get out. So I'm giving it 2 stars. She used the same condescending/whiny tone for every single sentence. I lasted all of fifteen minutes before I said enough and turned it off and listened to something else during my commute.

Gees.. I usually agree with the reviews I've read here but I got to tell you, I thought this book was heinous!
Dark humor mixed with quirky something-or-others.
If you like zombie entranced sexual partners mixed with blood and orgies.. this is your book.
I thought it was disqusting.
Thank you.. but what a waste of money. I'll stick with Janet Evanovich.
