A Very Fun Read

I had a great time reading MaryJanice Davidson's 'Dead and Loving It'. Although it seems like they were too short(I kept muttering 'That's IT?' when the stories were done), but they were cute thumbnail sketches of the wacky and fascinating lives of vampires, werewolves and fairies...more fairy stories, MaryJanice! I loved the intersection of the Wyndham wolves with Queen Betsy, and it cracked me up to see the disbeleif that they could have in not recognizing otherworlders as real.

I agree with the other reviewer who said not to read all four of the short stories in DEAD AND LOVING IT all at once. Read back-to-back, although a quick read, the stories are all extremely similar--there are even phrases in the stories that have been used, word for word, in the one that came before it. That said, all four stories deal in some way with werewolves, specifically ones from the Wyndham clan. The stories are short, sexy, and to the point. Although I enjoyed the premise of all of them, the use of the 'c' word to describe the female anatomy irked me, so much so that I had to, at times, set the book aside. However, SANTA CLAWS, MONSTER LOVE, THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A WEREWOLF, and A FIEND IN NEED are all fast-paced stories that die-hard fans of MJD will enjoy. Overall, not a bad book, although the typographical errors and the repetitive phrases (even some entire scenes appeared recycled from the previous short story) keep it from being a true winner.

    Four amusing romantic fantasy stories

    ¿Santa Claws¿. Werewolf Alec Kilcurt is lonely. That is until he sniffs his soulmate, who is a human female wearing a Santa Clause costume.----- ¿Monster Love¿. Vampire Richard Hill looked forward to falling in love that is until he did. His beloved werewolf Janet Lupo can get into a rage over nothing and calming her down takes quite a bite of his patience.----- ¿There¿s No Such Thing as a Werewolf¿. Dr. Drake is a rare physically impaired werewolf as he is blind. So he wonders why he vividly can see Crescent Muhn.----- ¿A Fiend in Need¿. Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor is at her wits end and by George not over shoes. However, relief may occur as Wyndham werewolf seer Antonia Wofton arrives to help George the vampire fiend evolve into a beast of her choosing.----- These are four amusing romantic fantasies as MaryJanice Davidson once again entertains the sub-genre with an irreverent fun anthology from the supernatural side.---- Harriet Klausner

    I Also Recommend:

    "Dead and Loving It" introduced me to the creative world of Mary Janice Davidson and she is all about being extra original. After the first story in her novella I was hooked!

    The book itself has several short stories that entwine with each other in some way. There all humorous and extremely delightful. The way she brings her characters to life make any reader a fanatic.

    Entertainment at its best

    Yet another book of short stories, 5 to be exact, that all pick up on characters from MaryJanice stories. These are all side stories from small characters that may have come up once, but the stories are a quick read and are very fun. There is a lot of passion and romance in each of the stories. There are even new types of characters, a fairy. All in all, the entire short stories can stand by themselves or be read after you read the Queen Betsy series. Wonderfully entertaining.

    To be expected from MaryJanice.

    Dead and Loving it is deffinatly one of my favorite books. Like said before, the stories are similar, but I fell head over heels for the characters. Richard and Jane are my favorite, and Garett and Antonia my least favorite, but combined this book makes a great read if read one story at a time and not all in a single dosage. I would reccomend this to any of my friends and family interested in paranormal romance laced with howls, bites, and an extreme amount of laughter.

    Really Cute!

    The short stories were cute. I really liked them. But what I reallt liked was finding out what was going on in Undead and Unpopular. The short story in here cleared that right on up.
