Customer Reviews

I thought story had less swearing than the last book (although that is not hard to do), and had some character development.
Cheryl Crawford, MD
I felt like in this book a lot of things happened that the readers didn't understand, at the same time Betsy seemed to be in the dark as well.
Jessie Potts
Do not buy this book, do not borrow it from a library and do not waste a minute of your precious lives reading this rubb Ish.

I checked out the latest installment in the Undead series from my local library as soon as it became available and finished it in one sitting. At the outset, MJD thanked all her fans for sticking by her with the last book and I was happy to count myself in this group until I began to read this drivel. If an author seeks to take the reader on a journey--then the trip that we are being taken on with this book feels like the LSD kind. Betsy mostly rambles and drops the f-bomb while trying to figure out her altered timeline. Sorry paranormal romance fans because gone are the hot scenes between her and Sinclair. He comes across as the hot guy who just so happened to live in your dorm. Sink Lair and Tina more or less make cameos--the only characters that put in more than a minor appearance are Marc and Betsy. Even Satan comes across as half-baked in terms of character development. I felt that there was no plot to speak up and really regret even wasting the time it took to read the book. Reading this book made me forget what I liked about the series in the first place. Betsy comes across as more whiny than usual and so stupid that one wonders if she even remembers how to put on her Manolos. At the risk of spoiling the book for anyone who would deign to read it, we are not given any answers that we did not already figure out as of the last book and of course, the way is paved for another book to tie up the loose plot ends which are just as loose from start to finish. I can understand a bit of deus ex machina when it comes to trying to resolve a story, but come on, even the explanations that the characters give for their actions are out-of-character and wholly unbelievable.Read more ›

I have forced myself to finish this book and my head is still spinning from the lunacy of it. Save your money.... If I could get a refund for this slapdash, poorly written insult of a book, I would! Insult? Yes... How dare the author treat loyal readers like idiots?

Ridiculous and incomprehensible plot lines... Yes
Feeble and unrealistic character development...yes
Short chapters, lots of padding...yes.

I am infuriated by this carelessly written, feeble excuse for a book. It does not deserve to be described as a novel. The author has clearly lost all interest in the series and assumes that loyal readers are gullible enough to continue paying for her work.

Do not buy this book, do not borrow it from a library and do not waste a minute of your precious lives reading this rubb
Ish.

I am an avid reader of all of MaryJanice Davidson's works. I downloaded this onto my Kindle this morning and just finished it. I cannot stress how disappointing this book is. Betsy comes across as more brain dead then ever, Sinclair is utterly clueless, and Laura morphs into the Antichrist with no explanation. Save your money and get it from the library, instead of wasting your money on this.

I sensed that the book was going to be unsatisfying when I read the Author's Note. She claimed this book was the second of a trilogy within a series. She said readers might be left with unanswered questions, but those questions would be answered in her next book which will be released in 12 months time. Well I was right about the unsatisfying, but not because of the unanswered questions. It isn't interesting enough to care about for 12 minutes let alone 12 months. There just wasn't any point to this book at all.

I don't think writing a trilogy excuses the lack of a plot for book 2. If that weren't enough, the characters were whiny, ridiculous, and stupid. The dialogue peaked at plodding but spent most of it's time at irritating. This book was just bad!

This book really IS as bad as most everyone is saying. I love this series, but this installment is a true WTH experience. The first thing I noticed was all of this missing words. I guess they have fired the editors and are just running books through spellcheck now? I actually wondered if you could return a used book due to missing words? Doesn't that qualify it as "broken?"

Then, there is the fact that the events of the story take place over 1 or 2 days. No need for a timeline here. Just call it "Tuesday."

And our favorite smart-a$$, wise-cracking herione is now apparently on some kind of meds, possibly crack, because her thoughts, words and actions are all over the place. She is MANIC. I often caught myself wanting to skim paragraphs because the words were just a jumbled mess. Betsy spends a good part of the book with a headache, and I definately had one when I finished it.

The end has some very sad moments, but that was the only part of the book that had any meaning at all. And weirdly enough, I found myself wondering if Betsy is the villain and the Anti-Christ is the heroine. How is that for confusion?

Let's hope that this is the author hitting "rock bottom" and she will only get better from here.

I like the Undead series like I enjoy going to the mall. It takes my mind off things, and amuses me for awhile. I find Betsy pretty irritating and stupid, but the rest of the characters and the story itself is (was) interesting enough that I could blow through these books in a day or two. By page 68 I realized nothing had happened in this book yet. NOTHING. Except a lot of chatter. To be fair the font is so big, the spacing so large and the pages so small it was probably page 8 of a "normal" book. While, I'm not expecting high literature. I do expect coherent thoughts, sentences, a plot...something. I have been reading this book for a week now and can not muster that motivation to get through more than 2 or 3 pages of this slop at a time.

Undead and Undermined is what happens when authors are under contract to deliver a book every year. Absolutely no thought, or creativity occurs. Undead and Undermined feels hastily thrown together. Whole excerpts from previous books are lifted and used verbatim here. Stuff we already know is rehashed over and over. Literally nothing seems to happen. Betsy is still trying to figure out what happened in the last book on page 248. Seriously nothing of consequence happens by page 248 and the entire book is only 276 pages long.

Unlike most readers of this series, I actually enjoyed the last book. I thought it was clever and had an interesting twist. I never expected the next book to be this bad. I'm so glad I only borrowed this from the library, I can't imagine paying money for this insult of a book. Wasting my time reading it has been offensive enough.
