I just finished this one.  Is it just me or is this series getting less funny as they go along?

I still think they are funny - I just love Queen Betsy.  Undead and Unwelcome was not my favorite but I still enjoyed.

I like the books but I will hardly call them books...long short stories at most.  The publishing is a joke. The last few books have taken me all of an hour to read.  They are double spaced, and what 300 pgs?  I refuse to buy them. If I happen to get them on one of the book trading sites or the library I read them...but I refuse to spend $$ on them.  She should be ashamed to published them as full books.

I've always thought that Betsy was very close to being TSTL.  Too stupid to live.  Part of the charm was the juxipostion of a TSTL who is in charge of the possibly evil vamps. So I've had mixed feelings from the first one.  I still read them.  Sort of like my attitude to Laurell K Hamilton, I read all of them, but don't quite trust or respect the author.

I'd recommend Shanna Swendson or Kathy Love's vamp series for humor.  For me, MJD counts more as a quilty pleasure than a keeper.

I've read up to book 6. I think that they are getting less funny with each book. I kind of wonder why I still read them, haha.

I hated this book! NOTHING happened, it was not funny and the whole story was completly unnecessary!

I think less funny is a good description.   But I've still enjoyed them.
