Undead and Unworthy: Review

Undead and Unworthy by Mary Janice Davidson

" Betsy Taylor thought entering the world of the unded was a big adjustment. Being a new bride isn't much easier. The blush has only been on for two months, and Betsy has a lot to do: set up the new house, finish writing thank-you notes, and raise BabyJon, her half brother and legal ward. Just another happy American family adjusting to marital bliss.

" Betsy's husband, Sinclair, has been perusing the Book of the Dead, and Betsy visited by a ghost who's even more insufferable, stubborn, and annoying in death than she was in life. She not only blames Betsy for her condition but insists she fix it. It's all just a prelude to the fun and games awaiting Betsy and Sinclair when a pack of formerly feral vampires, hungry for blood and power, pays a visit to the happy couple.


Okay, so I'll admit I was with the others ( you can find them anywhere) that was on the fence about the new art work on the cover of this book. It just doesn't match with the imagine I had of Queen Betsy. Mary Janice Davidson must have forseen her fans questioning the new cover work because she even writes about it at the start of the book. She says it has to do with the new direction she is taking the series. " Just as the first six books in tghe series were thier own story arc, so the next three books will be an arc.... think of this book as the first of a trilogy within a series".

Okay on to my review of this book, it was just alright! I had higher hopes for it. It still had the humor that the other books had, but it was just missing something. The others were faster reads, and I am shocked at the ending of this book and I of course can't go into more details because this blog will never ever spoil a book for the readers.

With all of that said, yes I will still read the other two that are coming out, because I would love to see this series through to the end.
I give this book 3 stars!

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

Great review and I totally get what your saying about this book missing something. I was totally surprised by the ending, but am hopeful that this story arc will get better.

One thing that really bothers me is the new covers. I know that's a lame thing to say, but I dont like them.
