REVIEW: Undead and Unappreciated (Undead #3) by Mary Janice Davidson

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars, Genre: Humor/ Vampires, Pages: 271, Level: Easy

Book Description from Goodreads:

“Fans can’t get enough of author MaryJanice Davidson and her topsy-turvy world of the undead with its newly-crowned queen, Betsy Taylor. Now, Betsy continues her reluctant reign while being bedeviled by family secrets…

Most women would love to live as royalty, but Betsy has found that being vampire queen has more problems than perks, except for always being awake for Midnight Madness sales. It may be easy to find blood (yuck) in the dark of night, but try finding a strawberry smoothie. And employees at her nightclub Scratch have been giving her nothing but grief since she killed their former boss. Some people…

But Betsy’s “life” takes an interesting turn at a shower for her wicked stepmother, who lets it slip that Betsy has a long-lost half sister. Now twenty years old, this woman just so happens to be the devil’s daughter – and destined to rule the world…”

There’s really not a whole lot to say about Undead and Unappreciated that has not been said in my reviews of its predecessors. Undead and Unappreciated is the third in Davidson’s Undead series that stars Betsy, an airheaded, shoe addict as the queen vampire, her incredibly gorgeous consort, Sinclair, and an entertaining supporting cast.

The Undead series is for entertainment purposes only. There are no moral messages or intellectual discussion opportunities. Davidson is not going to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Unappreciated is a quick, fun read. It gives the brain cells a much needed rest. It has a dab of mommy porn and lots of cussing.

Finally, if you are a fan of audiobooks, the first three Undead books are a fun addition to your audio library. The narrator is great. I began listening while I worked out, especially due to the fact that these books are ‘no brain cells required’ books. I ended up listening to the audiobooks while cooking, cleaning, anything that was feasible to complete with a phone in my pocket and earphones on my head. Or when I am cooking, I can prop up the phone and put it on speaker. Just be careful with the whole speaker thing if you have kids around. The story is definitely not appropriate for children.

Happy Reading! Or listening.
