Undead and Unappreciated by Mary Janice Davidson
Synopsis: New York Times best-selling author Mary Janice Davidson has made listeners jump from their seats with her thrilling tales and roll on the floor with her biting humor. Her Undead books–starring sassy, fashion-conscious vampire queen Betsy Taylor–are a unique treat worth sinking your fangs into. In between running her vampire nightclub and hunting down the perfect pair of shoes, Betsy learns her long-lost half sister Laura is actually the spawn of Satan. Complicating matters, prophesy states that the devil's offspring and the queen of the vampires are destined to rule the world together. Breaking the news of world domination to her newly discovered sibling might be a bit more difficult than Betsy imagined.
What can I say, I'm into reading the fluff this week! Davidson keeps you on your toes with another paranormal romanticized humorous novel. It's full of action and mystery as well as romance. Betsy Taylor, Vampire Queen, is capable of getting herself into some seriously strange situations. Throughout these books she seems as though she is growing up a little at a time, but is still focused on herself more than the needs of others. She's often a snotty self-involved individual, but then there are times where she sees her wrong. Betsy meets her long-lost half sister Laura, and is surprised at the demeanor of this "spawn of satan." I thought Betsy was setting herself up for another chance at death, but that certainly isn't the way this book played out. Laura is a calm, entertaining, friendly, and overall nice individual...even if she is the spawn of Satan! She has some odd powers that are surprising to Betsy, but her demeanor is what's the most terrifying. Another great read in the Betsy Taylor series. This one definitely kept me on my toes and made me want to keep going in the series. I liked this particular one more than book #2, but I would have to say book #1 was still the best. I recommend picking this book up if you're looking for something fun and easy to read.
