Undead and Unstable

Undead/Queen Betsy, #11

Fans of MaryJanice Davidson “Undead” series and the adventures of Queen Betsy Taylor will not be disappointed with her latest, UNDEAD AND UNSTABLE. After a rocky last two, the third in Davidson’s ‘trilogy within a series’ delivers big time. As an avid reader of this series since Undead and Unemployed, I have always found Davidson’s writing style entertaining if at times a bit frenetic. Undead and Unstable gives new meaning to the phrase, “sibling rivalry” and readers who have remained loyal to Davidson throughout the maelstrom should come away much more satisfied by the story’s end.

Book Blurb for Undead and Unstable

“If you’re fans of Sookie Stackhouse and Anita Blake, don’t miss Betsy Taylor. She rocks” (The Best Reviews)—and she’s back once again as a vampire queen who finds herself an unlucky (but fashionable) passenger on the road to damnation…

Betsy’s heartbroken over her friend Marc’s death, but at least his sacrifice should change the future—her future­—for the better. But it’s not as if Betsy’s next few hundred years will be perfect. After all, her half-sister Laura is the AntiChrist, Laura’s mother is Satan, and family gatherings will always be more than a little awkward.

What’s really bothering Betsy is that ever since she and Laura returned from visiting her mom in Hell, Laura’s been acting increasingly peculiar. Maybe it’s Laura’s new job offer: as Satan’s replacement down under. Unfortunately, the position comes at a damnable price: killing Betsy, her own flesh-and-blood.

Over Betsy’s dead body. And for that matter Marc’s, too, since he’s not quite as buried as everyone thought. Now a war has been waged—one that’s going to take sibling rivalry to a whole new level, and a dimension where only one sister can survive.
