Review & Giveaway: Undead and Undermined by MaryJanice Davidson
Undead and Undermined is the tenth book in the Queen Betsy series by MaryJanice Davidson and a Berkley Sensation novel.
So this is what being dead feels like. Vampire queen Betsy Taylor has awoken in a Chicago morgue, naked as a corpse. Her last memory is reconciling with her husband, Eric Sinclair, after a time-traveling field trip, including an indirect route to hell (literally), with her sister, Laura.
Now she’s Jane Doe #291, wrapped in plastic with a toe tag. Betsy can’t help but wonder, what in hell happened?
After Betsy and her sister returned from their time in hell and time jumping from the past to the future and back again - she wanted nothing more than to spend some quality time with her husband.
After a trip to happy, happy land with Eric - Betsy gathers her friends for smoothie time and some catching-up. Only things are a bit different.
As in reality.
The people in this reality are not the people that Betsy left just a short time ago. Apparently, while skipping around in the past - Betsy altered the future.
Now someone is out to make sure that what Betsy changed in the past - does not alter their future. Even if it means killing her in the present.
I love the Queen Betsy series. Betsy is hilarious and I never fail to laugh out loud at the situations she finds herself involved in.
If I have one request, it would be that Eric be a little more forthright. He seems to let Betsy run all over him at times, merely shaking his head and sighing.
Don’t get me wrong, I like a strong, butt kicking heroine - but I want her male counterpart to be just as strong.
I give Undead and Undermined 4 out of 5 stars and can’t wait for the next installment - Undead and Unstable.
