    Another disappointment

    Warning, possible spoilers ahead! (Mainly if you're reading the Undead series.)

    I did not like this one. It was all nonsense to me. There's barely a plot, and the mystery about the murders is badly handled. I could hardly understand what in world was going on, and I didn't care to. The characters don't have much depth to them. Rachael, the main female protagonist, is yet another one of Davidson's sarcastic characters. The main male protagonist, Edward, is supposed to be a geek. Therefore, the author makes him drop pop culture references all the time, which I quickly found to be irritating. These two, Rachael and Edward, fall in love at the speed of light, and I'm not kidding. They bump into each other at a Barnes and Noble, and suddenly they're drooling over each other.

    The characters from the Undead series make cameos. To me, they didn't act the same like in the Undead books, but maybe that's due to this story not being narrated from Betsy's point of view, because Betsy and her pals seemed a little less crazy/annoying. HOWEVER, there are some major inconsistencies with Undead and Undermined. Marc is suddenly now a zombie, and there is no explanation to this AT ALL. It's just dropped into there like it's no big deal. There's also no mention of the newly revived Garret and Antonia. Grrr.... It makes me kind of question whether the author is actually keeping track of what she's writing.

    Great read

    MJD has her humor writing back. This was a very funny book bringing in the werewolves and vampires from her other books. Very worth the read.

    an amusing zany tale

    Just prior to the beginning of the tax season plague, Wyndham Pack leader Michael Wyndham informs his cousin Rachel Velvela the accountant she needs to relocate from the Cape to St. Paul to keep an eye on the vampires that have recently surfaced in Minnesota. Michael shakes his head that the Undead pack leader is a shoe designer moronic addict, but he takes no chances in case Queen Betsy Taylor uses her fetish as a front. He also needs his reluctant cousin to keep a close eye for any werewolf trying to ignite a paranormal species war. Rachael adores her relative but believes he asks too much of her; still she follows orders and relocates.

    Edward Batley the Human read Taylor's monthly vamp newsletter that he assumes his a joke though he knows vamps are real. He travels to the state capital to investigate whether Queen Betsy is telling the truth. If affirmed that vampires reside in the Twin Cities, Edward will ask his vampire-slayer buddies Boo and Greg to join him in cleaning out the nest. At a time when someone executes vamps and weres, Rachael and Edward meet with each aware of the mutual attraction but ignorant of the mutual interest in Queen Betsy.

    Like a Venn Diagram, the start of a new connecting urban fantasy series is an amusing zany tale starring a CPA who kills with the dangerous modern day weapon of werewolf choice: an audit. The fast-paced jocular story line is fun to read but very thin. Still MaryJanice Davidson's fans will enjoy the offspring of the Wyndham Werewolves and the Palmer Vampires.
