"Betsy is Brilliant!"
Vampire Queen, Betsy Taylor, always has a lot of problems
to deal with. It comes with the job. The biggest problem
she has right now is werewolves and lots of them. Her
werewolf friend Antonia died to save her, and now she has
to take Antonia's body home to Cape Cod and the Wyndham
werewolves. She isn't sure if they are going to be
welcoming or not.
Betsy and her husband Sinclair do get some cold shoulder
treatment but the one who seems to be getting the brunt of
the cold is Betsy's half brother and legal ward, Babyjon.
All the werewolves stay clear of him and forget he even
exists. Why are they so freaked out about a little baby?
Meanwhile back home, Marc and Tina are left alone to fend
for themselves. Then Betsy's sister comes around to keep
them company but ends up bringing some company of her own
along. Before Marc can figure out what is happening, the
daughter of the devil is doing more evil than good and
nobody is answering Marc's frantic emails for help.
Betsy #8, Undead and Unwelcome, like all the Betsy
novels, was worth the wait.
However after waiting a year for a new installment (with a
story that takes place only a week after the last), the
book was too short and over too quickly for my liking. On
the other hand, Betsy is brilliant and there is nothing
stopping me from devouring the newest edition as soon as I
can get my hands on it.
So Sex in the City style story with Betsy in the leading
role, and some interesting twists and turns to keep the
readers hooked and longing for the next part. I loved the
fact that Marc was keeping a diary about things back home
and it was great to catch up with the Wyndham werewolves
again. Roll on book #9 and maybe get it out to us fans a
