****Spoiler Alert!***** This book really is unfinished! The ending will shock you completely. After contacting the author, here is what she said: "UNDEAD AND UNDERMINED will be out next July...and it starts about half an hour after UNFINISHED finished. Which I've also never done before, so this is new territory for MJ. To begin, Betsy's gotta explain to everyone about the new and weird timeline they're all in (Jessica pregnant, etc.). She needs to change the future...and she doesn't even know the worst of it yet. But she will..."
This book is really about Betsy and Laura. The other characters, Jane, Marc, Baby Jon etc are cameo characters at best.
Laura has been having reoccurring dreams about hell. She feels compelled to visit, and wants Betsy to come with her for support. In a very funny scene Betsy sacrifices her best shoes to Satan in order to get her attention. Satan appears wearing Betsy's shoes...something Betsy will b tch and moan about for the rest of the book. Once in hell, both Laura and Betsy are tempted in different ways by the devil. Long story short, Satan wants Laura to be her heir-to rule in hell while Satan takes a long vacation. Let's just say in the end Laura hasn't exactly said no.
If you look at the book as a job interview, this book was the mandatory tour/job skills portion of Laura's interview. Laura learns how to travel in time and Betsy and Laura time travel into Sinclair and Tina's past. We see Sinclair as a small boy, a wounded teen and an arrogant vampire. During the course of time traveling Betsy changes Tina and Sinclair's destiny so that Sinclair is the vampire we know and she loves today and argues successfully that she's already living in an altered time.
The book ends on a rather shocking cliffhanger that I personally loved although apparently other people found disturbing. I should say that I'm a huge fan of time travel, parallel worlds and alternate histories and the ending offers us a chance at all three. For those who aren't happy with the ending; the author has promised that the next Unded book starts half an hour after this one ends.
I deducted half a star because for the first five or six chapters it feels like nothing happens except Betsy introducing us to the back story and the entire cast of characters. I understand the need to introduce new readers to a series, but since I've read the eight books prior to this one; it seemed like a lot of repetition.

Okay. Annoyed. I'm officially done with this series. I was really enjoying it and this book ruined it for me. Betsy has gotten dumber as the series progressed. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
I've enjoyed the Undead series but this one was a slap in the face, and not in a good way. The author reached into her bag of bad ideas and used every one. Read morePublished 11 months ago by anonymouse
