Publisher's Summary

With an irresistible blend of flashy style and offbeat humor, MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead books have become regular residents on the New York Times best-seller list.

Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

Half a book

I've listened to all of this series.....some have been better than others. This one has taken a lot of flack review-wise on Amazon. I have to agree with most of what is being said: Betsy seems more dumb and oblivious than ever. Although I did like the time travel elements of the story. The ending is shocking; a complete 180 in what you expect from this series. I really feel this is half a book, it ends at the peak of the plot-line. Unfinished is part of the title and I guess I should have taken that as a warning. I'm sure I would not have been so disappointed if I had the next in the series (i.e. the other half of this book) to read immediately after finishing this one. It's not like this book ends with a cliff-hanger so that you cant wait for the next one. It just stops, there isn't an ending. So my recommendation is to wait until next July and read the two together.....you'll be less pissed off that way.

Not too good

I have read every book in the series but this one just makes me wonder if i will read any more of them. The whole book was confusing and hard to follow and the ending was just depressing and a real let down. All the others in the series i enjoyed but It took me days just to get the disgusting afterimages of this one out my mind.

So Disapointed in Queen Betsy

Do you hate it when an author takes your favorite character and ruins her? Do you love Queen Betsy's spunk, soul, irreverant behavior, and refusal to accept the stereotypical, evil nature, of vampires? Then DON'T read this book! While well-written, and ties up many loose ends in terms of character development - Tina, Eric, etc., this book's ending was a real let-down for me. Unlike the title, "Undead and Unfinished," this series is finished for me.

Strong Start Confusing and weak finish

I have the entire series of books. This one is my least favorite. It started off very promising. Finding out more about Laura and the Devil should've been great. It wasn't. The only redeeming thing in this book is finding out more about Sinclair and Tina's back story. Otherwise the dialogue was a bit of a bore. I'm assuming there will be another book that explains what happened to Tina, Sinclair, Mark and the world. I'm fine with cliff hangers, but in my view this one was confusing and poorly done.

Loved the series, completely disapointed with end

I fell in love with this fun almost sarcastic take on the whole Vampire books that are the latest rage. I kept reading, and spending my money because the books were just that, light, funny, sweet. Betsy is a somewhat of dumb blonde, but completely enjoyable to read about with her shoe facisnation and relucant whole hearted love for Eric. Problem is the writer completely makes a turn face in this book, and have to say I feel cheated and tricked. If I wanted to read a dark series, I would have. My advice, if you have only read the first 8, leave it there, I can imagine anyone being happy with how she ending this series...

Disturbing

Although I looked forward to reading another "Undead" book by Davidson, I was extremely disappointed and disturbed by the ending. The protagonist's total personality change at the end was too out of character to reconcile in my mind. I was sorry to have read this book and although I have recommended the "Undead" series to others, this is one to avoid.

Not one of her better story lines.

Where does Undead and Unfinished rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I had been doing this series while working because we were allowed to listen to media device. This series has always been entertaining. I found this book to be tedious yet it was still enjoyable due to narration.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Since I am not a writer and I respect anyone with the courage to put pen to paper, it is not my place to say but less rambling by Betsy's character would help.

What does Nancy Wu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is an excellent narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have always enjoyed this series. I laugh!

Great series!

I love this series and am always sad when the book ends. Nancy Wu does a great job voicing the characters and the dialogue is quick-paced and funny. Can't wait for the next one!

Thumbs Down

I have loved the Queen Betsy series from the beginning, but the last two books, one of which is this one, leads me to believe that Mary Janice Davidson is tired of the series--or just can't come up with new ideas for my favorite vampire queen. I probably won't be listening to any more of the Queen Betsy books after being disappointed twice in a row.

Loved the book!

I am always a fan of MJ and loved this book as well. The book hoped around alot but it wasn't hard to follow. Nancy Wu does a great job as usual, and its funny, and entertaining. I would definitely recommend the book, as well as the entire series.
