A fun, fast read, as expected. And I liked it a smidgen better than Undead and Unappreciated. Betsy has a couple of real dilemmas in this one--a friend has a serious illness, and a foreign vampire dignitary turns out to have killed another of Betsy's friends.read more

I think this is my favorite Queen Betsy book so far. The mysterious European vampires – are they friend or foe? What’s wrong with Jessica? Is there really a Zombie in the attic? And if so, what’s he doing there? Along with appearances from some of our favorite guest stars, Sophie and Liam and Garrett and Antonia (the werewolf, not the stepmom…although, the stepmom makes an appearance as well). Betsy herself actually seemed a little bit brighter, as well, which is nice, because the one thing I lament about her is her dim superficiality. She does state it rather eloquently though when she mentions that Eric is regal and commanding, Tina is smart, Jessica is a gazillionnaire, Antonia is a psychic werewolf, Marc is a doctor, Laura is the devil’s daughter, Cathie can walk through walls and she, Betsy, has the least to offer of all her friends even though she is, nominally, the Queen. When looked at from that perspective, Betsy becomes a more sympathetic character, and her foibles can be overlooked. She didn’t ask to be the queen, she just is. And apparently, vampire queens aren’t chosen for their I.Q. Okay. I can live with that, as long as there are enough other fascinating characters surrounding her. That number continues to grow, so I am optimistic.read more

Betsy's 31st birthday is approaching and she's decided to give up blood. Add to this a group of vampires coming to test her and Sinklair and their resolve to keep power in the area. She's also protesting that she doesn't want a party (yeah right) finding out what's wrong with her friend and keep her mother from driving her insane.She's still an incredible ditz and I have issues with her sometimes. Not a series I'd rush to buy but I enjoy delving in occasionally.read more

I just love this series from MaryJanice Davidson. Well, as the last book ended Betsy was trying to plan her wedding to Eric. This time around she's up to her usual antics. She's decided to jump on the wagon and not drink blood. She finds out some horrible news about her best friend, Jessica. The Euro vamps show up and then one gets attacked by one of her friends - as he is the one who changed her. Oh, jeez, does it not ever end?Poor Betsy is up to her ears with everyone else's problems - and her own. I'm sure that she just wishes that being the Queen would have been so much easier. But she's got people popping in her house all the time with news about some book that was being written about her (nonfiction - trying to be fiction) and then one of the Euro's turns up dead and everyone just wants her approval to do things. Betsy is as snarky as usual, but now with her not drinking blood, she's a little cranky.I love this series, because it's fun! Queen Betsy's world is fascinating and hilarious due to the fact that in this vampire world, the Queen of Vampires is also the biggest shoe fanatic! I can't wait to read the next few books in this series. I hope it never ends!

It had been quite a while since I read the previous Betsy books, and I'd forgotten that our heroine can tend towards a bit whiny and self-centred... especially as the book opens with her planning the guest list for her surprise birthday party. However, even though she sounds like the chick lit heroines I love to hate, there's something really endearing about Betsy. I don't think it's just the chick-lit-heroine-stuck-as-vampire-queen variant that makes her appealing -- she really is a lovable character despite it all. Anyhow, this book is another fun romp through her world of shoes, friends, and undead.

Hmmm, I don't seem to agree with many of the reviewers. I see this as the turnaround in a series that was sinking fast. I enjoyed this much more than book 3 or 4. I thought the plot was stronger and there was more action in this one than we have seen in a long time.
