Awesome!

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.

Vampire greatness

The whole series is great. The series is a combination of Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Stephanie Plum. Lots of fun.

Yes, this series is 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!

Fantastic!

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.

Throw disbelief off the cliff

I can happily suspend disbelief when it comes to the existence of vampires. I can be ok with vampires drinking chocolate milk, having babies, being immune to holy water and wooden stakes, but I draw the line at believing that a Republican would join PETA, or that a member of PETA would wear leather shoes! Seriously, it could have been a fun book if the main character weren't such a shallow, vacuous vamp, with no redeemable qualities.

More of the same

Pretty much like book one. Betsy is still sarcastic. Too descriptive sex scenes, don't add to the story. Still a lot of fun.

Excellent Humerous Vampire Series

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.

WOW... Is this a bad book!

Ok, seriously... the only thing that could make the AMAZINGLY badly written characters any more annoying is the HORRIBLE narration. Don't waste the book credit.

Nose dive.

The first book set up a lot of drama for book 2 that was never realised. Development of side characters was non-existant and frustrating.

Here's a big plot hole that bothered me: in book one it's established that proper treatment of a 'sheep' or person you are feeding from is to get them off after or during your bite. Betsy is bothered in the first book by the King of the Vampires sleeping with three women at once while feeding but in the second book these women disappear and you never see or hear of the King feeding again.

I'd hoped that maybe this drama would at least show up in book three but it seems Davidson just decided it was easier to gloss over the king's playboy habits and pretend he's suddenly a dotting sycophant.
