Along with my interest in Laurel K. Hamilton’s vampire hunter series came many recommendations for the Undead series by Mary Janice Davidson. Undead and Unwed is the first in the series, where Betsy Taylor, a somewhat superficial and fashion conscious heroine suddenly finds herself dead and a vampire to boot. She has abilities that are unusual even among vampires and as a result is believed to be the queen whose coming was foretold by prophecy. This book was full of humor, romance, the supernatural, and the expected fight between good vs. evil. Although I definitely feel the draw to this series, the main character’s continual chatter can be annoying at times.

In the second installment of Mary Janice Davidson’s Undead series, Queen of the Vampires, Betsy Taylor reluctantly agrees to find out who is killing vampires in the city, while maintaining her new job selling shoes at Macy’s. Undead and Unemployed made me chuckle out loud several times. This is a great light read that is quite entertaining.

This is by far my favorite in the Undead series that I’ve had the chance to read so far. Betsy, Queen of Vampires, seems to be maturing a little bit as a character. In this third installment, Betsy discovers she has a half sister who just happens to be the child of the devil, destined to rule the world. This is just one of the many challenges facing Betsy during the course of the book. Undead and Unappreciated is a lighthearted and enjoyable reading experience, full of romance, a little action, and a great deal of humor.

A serial killer is after tall blond women, ghosts are popping in for favors, and there are wedding plans to be made. Betsy, the Queen of Vampires, has her hands full. Mary Janice Davidson brings us her fourth installment of the Undead series. Betsy is her usual self and it’s never a question of whether or not she will get into trouble, but more a question of what exactly that trouble will be. I enjoyed Undead and Unreturnable and am curious to see what further adventures Ms. Davidson has in store for Betsy and her friends.
