Undead and Unappreciated - Queen Betsy, Bk 3
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
Most women would love to live as royalty, but Betsy has found that being vampire queen has more problems than perks, except for always being awake for Midnight Madness sales. It may be easy to find blood (yuck) in the dark of night, but try finding a strawberry smoothie. And employees at her nightclub Scratch have been giving her nothing but gri...  more »

This is the 3rd book in MJD's Undead series and it was great! I swear this series is getting better as it goes along. Either that or Betsy is just growing on me! LOL In this book, Betsy finds out that her stepmom was possessed by the devil for 10 months and now she's got a 20 year old half-sister who's the devil's daughter and destined to rule the world! I only wish these books were a bit longer. At 271 pages (and fairly large type), it's a really quick read. Quirky, funny, and left me wanting more!

See the BookCrossing journal page for this book for more links and information.

This is the third in the series of the "Undead" or "Betsy Taylor" books by Mary Janice Davidson. So far, I love the series. Besty is a riot and if she were a real person (dead or undead) I swear we would be best friends. She even says fuck a duck, that's so me!!! The first two in the serial are great and this one was good but not quite the standard of the other two. I got this book as a Bargain Book from Amazon and I am glad I didn't have to pay the $20+ for it, not worth the hardcover price yet. The general premise of this novel is that Betsy discovers that she has a half-sister whom is also the daughter of the devil. Interesting twist but not a powerful storyline like the previous novels. She needed to shop more, lol. However, despite its faults this novel is still a fun read!

I enjoyed this one too but the main character seems to be more chatty, in a dumb, juvenile, more curse words type of way. In other books she seemed to have a ditzy charm and a go with the flow or make the most of what you have been given type of attitude that isn't as obvious in this one.

I was entertained for a couple hours, but felt like the book was just lacking. Maybe because this book was a hardback, I had greater expectations. I feel a bit ripped off, because even as a small hardback, the pages had large margins and large print. This would even make a tiny paperback.

As much as I look forward to the books in the "Undead" series, I would be happier to wait a little bit longer if it meant I got a story that was more fleshed out. I have grown to embrace all the characters in the series, and felt that this book did a disservice to them.

Despite that, I am still looking forward to the next one.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Taylor, Queen of the Vampires, is having yet another bad day. Her stepmother, The Ant, is pregnant with her half-sibling, and still as unlikeable as always. Her dad, stopping by to encourage her not to make an appearance at the baby shower, lets it slip that Betsy has another half-sibling that was given up years ago. Determined to find out who this brother or sister is, Betsy goes on a reading binge, locking herself in the library with her copy of The Book of the Dead.

Totally forgetting that too much vampire book in one sitting can make you insane, Betsy reads until common sense is pushed by the wayside. She attacks her best friend, Jessica, verbally harangues her friend Marc, tells off Tina, the vampire king's right-hand-lady, and jumps Sinclair's bones.

To make matters worse, Betsy discovers that her long-lost half-sister, Laura, is more than just the adopted daughter of a minister and his wife--she's also the daughter of the Devil, who took over The Ant's body while she was pregnant.

Talk about a bad week! The latest installment of the life and times of Betsy is as funny as ever, filled with MaryJanice Davidson's one blend of sarcastic wit. I can't wait for the release of UNDEAD AND UNRETURNABLE, to pick up Betsy's life where this book left off.

I loved Undead and Unwed, Undead and UnEmployed was ok, but not as good as the first one. This book was just 'eh'. The storyline didn't make a lot of sense to me and it seemed as though the author was struggling to get a good plot.

Just like all the books in this series....Undead and Unappreciated was a wonderful quick read. I can't wait to read the res of the series.

Big development with the introduction of Betsy's half-sister but somehow this book didn't grab me the way the first two did. In my second reading of the whole series I am disappointed in Sinclair, wish there was more depth to their relationship or at least more shown of how they relate to each other. It seems like they are in love without any reason and with almost no contact.

Still a very fast, breezy read with some cute moments and laughs. But my least favorite of the first three.

In this third installment, Queen Betsy finds out she has a half sister who just happens to be the daughter of the devil and Betsy becomes evil for a night after reading the book of the dead. A fun and light read.

I didn't really like this book. I feel like she killed vampire traditions trying to be comical and hip. Felt shallow and rushed.
