Becky Bookworm Book Review - Undead and Unreturnable, Unpopular and Uneasy *3 in 2 days!*

I've been enjoying the Undead series by Maryjanice Davideson sooooooooooooooo much that I have been reading through them super quickly. Not just because their a light read to say but because the characters are fantastic and the plots whether complex or not just urge you on to see how a character reacts next.
So here are my reviews of Undead and Unreturnable, Undead and Unpopular and Undead and Uneasy...enjoy!

Undead and Unreturnable (Undead, #4) Undead and Unreturnable by MaryJanice Davidson


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book wasn't as action packed as the third one and had a good strong focus on Betsy and Sinclairs relationship as lovers, friends, King and Queen and most crucially as vampires. Ghosts are making more of an appearence due to Betsy's developing powers which creates some adventure although it does feel a bit forced into the plot as the issue with a serial killer is very swiftly delt with causing no real big fuss apart from introducing yet another character (I do believe Betsy is definitly growing her own courtiers) and bring back Detective Nick Berry into the mix.
On the whole though the plot is good as after three books of bickering between Betsy and Sinclair it's nice to see them having relationship troubles now that they are not only officially together but are also getting married.
Still wity and funny as ever, Betsy's attitude just gets bigger and better throughout and still settles on a nice expectant note to encourage you onto the next one.

Undead and Unpopular (Undead, #5) Undead and Unpopular by MaryJanice Davidson


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book, when started come as bit of a shock due to the sudden appearence of another character and how much George aka Garret the Fiend has developed. I actually had to double check the booklist to make sure I hadn't accidentally skipped one by accident. But no this is indeed book number 5. The appearence of non-changing werewolf fortune teller and George's recovery is briefly and quickly explained but as they don't feature too much in the story over all it is perfectly acceptable to simple glean over those facts.The real suprise is the first book actually becomes an inanimate feature of the series due to a certain character doing a misguided bio on Betsy and secretly sending to a publishers. It seems literature has become a little mini joke as in book 4 Undead and Unreturnable Betsy actually gets her own advice column in a supposedly secret vampire newsletter. Which also managed to get into the public domain via a newspaper just like the book.The main anatagonists are old european vampires and another of Betsy's friends who has a severe grudge against one of them for a very good reason. It proves quite a problem for Betsy as Queen to serve both of them equally and not have heads roll. Plus Betsy learns a devestating secret about her best friend.All in all it's yet another emotional roller coaster for Betsy and it's a great pay off to see how she adapts and comes through it all the same.

Undead and Uneasy (Undead, #6) Undead and Uneasy by MaryJanice Davidson


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just when you think it can't get any worse for Betsy it does but there are so many problems she fails to see how they make one big nasty conspiracy against her. It's all her problems with friends and family that ultimately pay off the quick introduction of a werewolf fortune teller and reformed Fiend as they become the key that unlocks the mess for Betsy and gets her in her famous 'kick-ass' mood to sort things out. Because if she doesn't "there will be more than one funeral".Still witty and funny as ever even when Betsy seems to be at her lowest point so far in the series. I do believe this book could capture the trues worst week ever for our dear vampire queen. But her reward at the end of all this turmoil is not only her friends and loved ones safe but she also gains yet another new power that is a lot more deadly and creepy than drinking blood and seeing ghosts.

Only 2 more left of the series in my little college library where I work - who wants to bet I'll have them both finished by monday?
Hummm I hope there are more books of Betsy Queen of Vamps, if so I'll have to run by my local town library and see if they have them there. Ooooh I do love being a book worm and librarian! Free books whenever I like!
