Fans of Mary Janice Davidson's Betsy vampire series has seen the books get progressively darker but still funny with a bite. This book serves as a relief after the somewhat depressing twists in the last two, but still delivers all the entertainment punch readers have come to expect. While Betsy may not be the traditional vampire, she'll continue to rule while looking for the perfect shoes.
Betsy has killed Satan, and her half-sister Laura isn't thrilled that her mom is dead and she's the new ruler of Hell. While Betsy is used to everything in her life being topsy-turvy since she became Queen of the Vampires, it seems like everything is a little more crazy. Her husband is daytime crazy now that he can face the sunlight. One of her best friends is a zombie with a penchant for Suduko and her other best friend has been pregnant for months and months but nobody is exactly sure of when her due date is. So of course it's the perfect time for Betsy to throw a Thanksgiving family get together that ends up being Hell-ish.
Vampire queen Betsy ?don’t call me Elizabeth” Taylor is back?and there’s going to be Hell to pay?in MaryJanice Davidson’s ?one of a kind” (Darque Reviews) New York Times bestselling series?
It’s no surprise to Betsy that her trip to Hell with her sister Laura landed them in hot water. Betsy isn’t exactly sorry she killed the Devil but it’s put Laura in a damnable position: assuming the role of Satan (she may not have the training but she looks great in red)?and in charge of billions of souls as she moves up in the world. Or is that down?
But Betsy herself is in an odd new position as well?that of being a responsible monarch suddenly in charge of all things more earth-bound: like her vampire husband Sinclair who has gone from relieved to ecstatic to downright reckless now that he can tolerate sunlight. And if Sinclair isn’t enough to contend with, Betsy’s best friend Jessica is in her sixth (and hopefully last) trimester. Considering she’s been pregnant for eighteen months, she’s become a veritable encyclopedia of what not to expect when you’re expecting. Oh, the horror?
And speaking of growing pains, Betsy and Sinclair’s adopted little BabyJon is finally starting to walk. And if the increasingly unpredictable toddler is anything like his extended family, precisely where he’s headed is anyone’s guess.
