Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor continues her rule in Hell in the scorchingly funny finale to the Undead series from New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson.
It had been a well-kept secret for centuries, but now the existence of vampires is all over the news, thanks to Betsy Taylor’s half sister (and the frustrated former Antichrist), Laura. Life for the undead will never be the same, and it’s up to Betsy to do some damage control. But her interview on the local news doesn’t exactly put out the fire. It more or less pours kerosene on it.
With all the added attention on supernatural beings, the werewolves are more than a little agitated (never a good thing) and demand that Betsy gets her interview skills, and her family, in order. And while things go from bad to worse in the world, Hell continues to be hell—especially when Betsy’s new parole program becomes about as complicated as you’d expect.
With a PR team launching a vampire-friendly campaign, the devil at large and out to make trouble, and mermaids on hand to see who falls—and how hard—the end isn’t just near. It’s here. And if anyone knows how to go out with a bang, it’s the queen of Hell.
“MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead series is laugh-out-loud funny.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers
New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson is back. So is Betsy Taylor, “everyone’s favorite vampire queen” (Bitten by Books) and this time Betsy’s going viral…
If Betsy Taylor has learned anything about ruling Hell it’s: 1) She can’t do it alone, and 2) She doesn’t have to. She’s got the help of a devoted vampire king, a dateless zombie, an exhausted new mom, an unshowered cop, a bitchy ghost, a kindly dead priest, and her late stepmother (“Go Team Satan 2.0!”). But the latest major hurdle in her afterlife is so big she can’t even see it until it’s on YouTube.
Betsy’s father and half sister Laura (a former Antichrist with a grudge) have teamed up, for what sinister purpose Betsy can’t imagine. The former Antichrist didn’t take kindly to getting what she wished for, and has decided that’s entirely the fault of the vampire queen. What that means for Betsy is trouble (more than usual, even) and possible exposure to an unsuspecting world.
Meanwhile Hell is having a deleterious effect on Betsy’s friends (“I didn’t think it was possible, but the damned are getting meaner.”), the newly dead are confused about Hell’s new rules (“A buddy system? Really?”), and the vampire king is trying to poach on Betsy’s territory. Betsy loves her husband, but that’s not the same as trusting him. Before long the king and queen of the vampires aren’t speaking to each other, the mansion on Summit Avenue is a war zone, and Betsy’s getting calls from a werewolf, a mermaid, and worst of all, her mother (“What do you mean you can’t babysit?”). No one said life after death would be easy, but c’mon: this is ridiculous.
Vampire queen Betsy Taylor returns in the outrageous new Undead novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Undead and Unsure.
Even with Satan out of the picture and the Antichrist for a sister, Betsy Taylor has had a hard time maintaining “things below.” It’s not that she’s been shirking her hellish obligations. It’s just that her earthbound duties are so time-consuming—like a brand-new baby drama involving a pair of uncanny (okay, terrifying) toddler twins. And get this: Betsy’s dad, once so very dead, has been spotted in downtown St. Paul.
Now amid all this fire-and-brimstone jazz, Betsy’s very own flesh and blood have even more surprises in store for the vampire queen. And jolt by jolt, Betsy is soon to discover that there’s nothing as heartwarming as family. Yeah, like Hell.
Vampire queen Betsy Taylor is back—and there’s going to be hell to pay…
After her recent trip to hell, Betsy isn’t exactly sorry she killed the devil, even though it’s put her sister Laura in a damnable position: forced to assume the role of Satan—she may not have the training, but she sure looks great in red—and in charge of billions of souls now that she’s moved up in the world. Or is that down?
But Betsy’s in an odd new situation as well—that of being a monarch suddenly in charge of all things earthbound, like her husband, Sinclair, who has gone from relieved to ecstatic to downright reckless now that he can tolerate sunlight.
As if that wasn’t enough, 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.
Betsy’s heartbroken over her friend Marc’s death, but at least his sacrifice should change the future—her future—for the better. But Betsy’s next few hundred years will still be far from perfect. After all, her half sister Laura is the Antichrist and Laura’s mother is Satan, which means that 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 their 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: her soul. 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.
There’s no guarantee in life. Or for that matter, death…
Vampire queen Betsy Taylor has awoken in a Chicago morgue, naked as a corpse. Her last memory is reconciling with her husband, Eric Sinclair, after a time-traveling field trip to hell (literally) with her sister, Laura. Now, she’s Jane Doe #291, wrapped in plastic with a toe tag. Betsy can’t help but wonder, what in hell happened?
For starters, she and Laura didn’t time-travel alone. What followed them had a wicked agenda: to kill Betsy in a time when she was young and vulnerable and end her future reign as queen. But it’s not just Betsy’s future that’s taken an unexpected detour. Everyone in her circle, alive or undead, is feeling the chill. Betsy can’t let the unthinkable happen. It would be a cold day in hell if she did.
Vampire queen Betsy Taylor makes a deal with the devil in order to discover the secrets of the Book of the Dead. Just one catch: she and her sister must go to hell to do it. Just long enough to make nice with her mother, aka Lucifer, and take a detour through time…
Since tying the knot with Sinclair, like hasn?t been all marital bliss for Betsy. Sinclair has been perusing The Book fo the Dead, Betsy?s being hounded by a ghost who?s even more insufferable in death than in life, and a pack of ancient vampires has decided to pay an unwelcome visit.
With her wedding fast approaching, cold feet don’t come as a surprise to Betsy Taylor-especially with an undead groom. But when her fianc? and most of her loved ones go missing, it’s up to Betsy to find them-and whoever is behind the disappearances.
As Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor approaches the big 3-1 (in human years, that is), she has a lot on her plate. There are wedding plans to finalize, with no help from her fiancé Eric. And Betsy’s decided to stop drinking blood, something Eric, the vampire king, may not understand…
So when some guests show up uninvited, and they happen to be the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects the week before her birthday, Betsy gets really cranky…
As if she needed yet another reason to shop, Queen of the Vampires Betsy Taylor is in the middle of planning the perfect wedding to drop-dead gorgeous vamp Eric Sinclair. And she’s not about to let little things like death and blood-drinking get in her way.But all is not bouquets and bridal showers—Betsy is plagued by ghosts who demand her help in rectifying their past mistakes, and a serial killer is on the loose. With his victims all being tall, blond women, Betsy fits the profile exactly…
Reluctant vampire queen Betsy Taylor may rule the topsy-turvy world of the undead, but now Betsy’s discovered that she has a long-lost half-sister who’s the devil’s daughter–and destined to rule the underworld.
Betsy Taylor, Queen of the undead, has snagged a dream job in a shoe store (just like a normal person!). But when vampires start getting killed off, Betsy enlists the help of the sexy vampire Sinclair. Now she’s really treading dangerous ground-but this time in brand-new high heels.
It’s been a hell of a week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, she’s killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can’t seem to stay dead. Every night she rises, with a horrible craving for blood. And she’s not taking too well to a liquid diet. Worst of all, Betsy’s new friends have some silly idea that she’s the prophesied vampire queen.
