“If you’re fans of Sookie Stackhouse and Anita Blake, don’t miss Betsy Taylor. She rocks” (The Best Reviews)—and she’s back once again as a vampire queen who finds herself an unlucky (but fashionable) passenger on the road to damnation…

Betsy’s heartbroken over her friend Marc’s death, but at least his sacrifice should change the future—her future­—for the better. But it’s not as if Betsy’s next few hundred years will be perfect. After all, her half-sister Laura is the AntiChrist, Laura’s mother is Satan, and family gatherings will always be more than a little awkward.

What’s really bothering Betsy is that ever since she and Laura returned from visiting her mom in Hell, Laura’s been acting increasingly peculiar. Maybe it’s Laura’s new job offer: as Satan’s replacement down under. Unfortunately, the position comes at a damnable price: killing Betsy, her own flesh-and-blood.

Over Betsy’s dead body. And for that matter Marc’s, too, since he’s not quite as buried as everyone thought. Now a war has been waged—one that’s going to take sibling rivalry to a whole new level, and a dimension where only one sister can survive.

I was a fan from book one page one. The last three books have left me feeling cheated. What has happened MJD?

The Stream of conscious writing got really annoying and was obviously a filler to extend what could have been a 100 page novelette.

This series was great in the beginning but the last several books just rambled without much of a plot. I used to look forward to new books in the series but think I have read my last one.

This book was okay. The last two or three books in this series haven't really done it for me. Seemed like a lot of babble about nothing where the character couldn't stay on track. I get that is a part of this character but it gets annoying when that is over 3/4 of the book. Plus, I feel like this story didn't make sense in terms of the order of a few story lines. Maybe I missed something or forgot but I feel like things happened in the last book for reasons she doesn't find out about until this one (staying vague so I don't spoil anything). I don't know, I liked the series until the last two books.

It seemed like 75% of this book was "standing around, drinking smoothies, and talking". I think this whole future/past stuff is just getting too convoluted. They spend most of the novel trying to figure it out, and there's very little action. I loved the beginning of this series, but I wish she would wrap it up in some sort of satisfying ending since I haven't liked the last 3 books very much. I've read her other series, so I wish she would finish this one and concentrate on writing about something else, since I enjoy reading her books. I'm not sure if I will read anymore in this series.

Horrible book. Loved the series at the beginning but the last few books have been pretty bad. Rambling on and on not only was confusing, but annoying. I don't plan on reading any future books from this series.

.... notice, past tense. I love quirky Betsy, however, her quirks were a large part of my annoyance with these past three books. Betsy's ramblings in these books were less charming in these books. That, on top of the writing style, made these last three books not only difficult to follow, but almost painful to read. When i finally got to the end it was quite a let down.....and then rambled on.......through multiple epilogues.... Will think twice before i buy the next one. MD, please dont let us down.

This book was in keeping with the rest of the series, and was action packed with lots of funny places. It is a book to rest with and laugh out loud and get misty eyed. A book is a true friend that you can visit and revisit over and over again.

I normally love the Betsy Taylor Series! I recommended this series to everyone I know. MaryJanice Davidson is a great author; However, The past two books (Undead and Undermined and Undead and Unstable) felt like they could have been one book. Although I love where the story went and I will definitely read the next book in the series if she continues it, I felt these two in particular were rushed. Undead and Unstable was just Betsy running around not doing anything. Literally! There was no drama or action or romance until the very end of this book. I believe it was a good set up for whatever happens next though. That's why I still gave it 3 stars.

While this book is decent; the first few books in the series are much better, I am beginning to get confused! It's almost as if all the characters are changing. I really wish MJD didn't change the plot in the last few books, it takes away from what us readers know and love about them. I will say though that I am interested and seeing where the novels go from here.

After the last book I almost gave up on Queen Betsy. Horrible did not even cover my impression but I am a fiercly loyal consumer so I decided to give Betsy another chance. I was VER pleased with the latest book. Humorous, entertaining and a good storyline. Parts of it were a little "dumbed" down for my liking but Betsy isn't exactly a rocket scientist either. If you've read the other Betsy books give this one a chance. If you haven't read the others be sure to start at #1 fo you'll have NO idea what is going on.
