Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wishes come true with unforeseen consequences in bestseller Davidson's anemic sixth Undead paranormal romance (after 2006's Undead and Unpopular). Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor discovers that even weddings with a $3 million budget can be a killer to plan [...]. Sixteen months earlier, Betsy was a secretary dreading her 30th birthday. Now she's a bad-ass vampire queen betrothed to Eric Sinclair, wealthy 70-something Vampire King. Betsy must [...] worry about Jessica, her seriously ill best friend, while trying to find the guests and groom before the wedding date is past. Marred by a sometimes too-cute narrative, this novel lacks the substance of the work of Charlaine Harris or Marta Acosta, hurtling to a "feel good" resolution that may please Davidson's fans but will leave others wondering why this series continues to thrive.

From Booklist

With only a few weeks to go before the vampire royal wedding, Betsy has still not found a dress. Then, when her father and her stepmother are immolated in a garbage-truck disaster, nobody is there to hold Betsy's hand at the funeral. Her inner circle seems to have disappeared. Sinclair appears to have taken off in a snit. Jessica is in the hospital. Tina is in France meeting with the European vamps. Besty's sister, the Spawn of Satan, is being totally unsympathetic, and the bitchy werewolf Antonia and her boyfriend, Garrett, the onetime feral vampire fiend, have disappeared. On top of all this, Betsy has to care for her baby brother. So what's a girl to do when a pack of Wyndham werewolves shows up at her door and she realizes something is really wrong? Fans of Davidson's reluctant vampire queen will be thrilled with the latest in the series, a tale filled with breezy dialogue, kick-ass action, and endearing characters. Tixier Herald, Diana

By Cherise Everhard VINE VOICE on August 13, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Betsy Taylor, Queen of the Vampires, is down to the wire on the wedding plans; she has just two weeks to the big day and she has yet to pick out a wedding dress. Her groom isn't being very helpful, Sinclair feels that the wedding is unnecessary as the Book of the Dead already recognizes them as married. He is getting grumpy and Betsy and he are not getting along.

While she finalizes the plans she faces one of her biggest obstacles to date. Unfortunately when Betsy needs everyone the most, no one is there for her; everyone has disappeared, leaving the Queen of the Vampires alone. Betsy is forced to fend for herself for the first time since she woke up Undead.

The best part of this book to me was the visiting Werewolves. While Betsy struggles through her days solo, we get an unexpected visit from Antonia's Werewolf family, the Wyndhams. The initial meeting between Betsy, Michael, Jeannie, Lara and Derik, was hilarious and fun. I hope they make a habit of appearing as I have missed them.

While I enjoyed this book, I couldn't love it like I have all the other Undead books. With Betsy's eclectic entourage MIA, the story was missing a lot of the laughs and action each of them usually draw. I really felt the void each character's absence left.

The ending was a bit anticlimactic to me and I couldn't help muttering "duh!" when Betsy finally put the pieces together. There was also a bit of unfinished business; Derik has an odd reaction to BabyJon and we never find out why. This is still very good read but not quite the great read I am used to by Ms. Davidson or this series. I gave this a 4 star rating, but I would say it is more 3 ½ stars.

This episode of the Betsy the Vampire series (book 6) is all about Betsy. Just Betsy. While the other friends make almost guest appearances, this book shows Betsy's maturing as a Vampire Queen, and how she is coming into her own in the world of vampire diplomacy. This book is different from the other books in the series in this way. Betsy is still charming, funny, annoying, and vain, but she is a force to be reckoned with who is ever under-estimated by others. I agree with another reviewer that the Editorial reviews give away way too much plot, so I am reticent to discuss particular details of the book for fear of even more spoilers. But I liked the book due to its advancement of the overall plot and the underlying message that Betsy is Queen --and no one to mess with.

I got this book today and powered through in about an hour and a half. I smiled a lot and laughed a little.

Mary Janice Davidson clearly set out to isolate Betsy and force her to act on her own. Betsy does, and in the process, really comes to understand that she Is The Queen. My problem with the book is that I like the other characters; the ones who seem to have gone on sabbatical this time out. We have minimal interaction with Mark, Sinclair, Antonia and Garrett while Tina, Jess, Nick and John are fairly powerless to help our Betsy. My biggest problem was with Betsy's mom and sister, both of whom acted completely out of character.

It seems like I'm complaining more than I intended to. I'm really not. Undead and Uneasy is a classic MJD romp which is quick, fun and leaves you looking for more. Which is what I'm doing. Looking for more. So MJD write quickly, because I want to know what happens next. Okay?

If I'm reading the author's acknowledgements/preface/introduction rightly, then this is probably the last volume in the series about Betsy, Queen of the Vampires. And the somewhat crowded feeling, as if a few too many things were happening and being crammed all into one book, reinforces that suspicion.

That said, it's always better for a book to have too much happening rather than too little. And since we already know that the series is lightweight, if some of the action is improbable for the characters involved, or flat-out silly to think someone would ever do that, well, that's part of the series: several of the characters have always been purely stereotypes for the sake of laughs. Either you learn to live with that, or don't.

For those of you who haven't read other books in the series, you really should read them in order; the events of this book make no sense unless you already know who the players are. Don't try and read this one first just because it's easily available, thinking that if you like it, then you'll go back and read the rest of the series. Doesn't work that way. You've gotta already know about Betsy's dad and stepmother, about her half-sister Laura and who Laura's mother was, about why Jessica has a mansion full of weirdos. Some of what you need to know isn't even in the series directly; the whole thing about Antonia and Garrett is from a novella contained in an anthology of Davidson's werewolf series stories, Dead and Loving It (ISBN-13: 978-0425207956). (No, I don't really know why a book of werewolf stories has a title as though it were mainly about vampires.) That said, to give you an idea of whether the series is for you at all, you should know how it stacks up against other vampire series.
