Publisher's Summary

MaryJanice Davidson's cult hit Undead and

Unwed is a delightful mixture of Sex and the City and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. 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.

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

What the Critics Say

"Sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Davidson's chick-lit foray into the paranormal is delightful." (Booklist)

    "Pass this one by"

    This is the first novel in the series. I listened to the first few chapters 3 times and still was confused with the interaction among the characters. The dialog which should be light an entertaining is stilled, force, and out of context. This is one series I will not buy again. The fangs series by Molly Harper is one which delivers, snappy conversation, interesting characters and entertaining plot.

    "Not Sookie"

    For all of you out there looking for a Sookie Stackhouse replacement, you will be disappointed. If you take this line for the story being told, you will enjoy it! I did.

    "Meh..."

    I was excited at the prospect of a fun series but after hearing the first book, I don't think I want to continue. I just couldn't warm up to the main character, Betsy. She is really irritating! Too whiny and sarcastic. She sounds more like a teenager than a 30 yr. old. After reading some of the other reviews on the other books, it sounds like she doesn't develop in character much. Oh, well!

    "Undead and Unwed"

    Quirky, sexy and fun. I enjoyed the youthful point of view. Has some very detailed sex scenes which I enjoyed, but may not be appropriate for all ages.

    "Save Your Credits"

    If one were to take out all of the curse words, the audiobook would be half the length. I don't mind a few curses, but jeeze! I don't know what was more annoying, all the crude language or the irritating voice that read them.

    "Was pleasantly surprised...."

    I actually enjoyed this story. The narrator is not the best, but if you can get past that point, the listening is enjoyable. Good summer read or for light listening.

    "Loved the book"

    I loved the written version of this book, but the audio version left me unimpressed. Not sure I can pinpoint why, but it was just 'meh'.

    "Very Entertaining"

    Loved this book and can't wait to hear the next. Perfect mix of paranormal, some romance and humor! I was looking for a new series after finishing Charlaine Harris Sookie series, I think I've found my new series! yay:)

    "Lead character needs more substance"

    The main character, Betsy, is so shallow and so one dimensional that the book is quite slow. It was hard to engage with the characters until about 2/3 of the way into the book. Even then, the characters still lack dimension, but at least a plot begins to develop.
