Undead and Unpopular Paperback
Part of the Undead/Queen Betsy series
Betsy Taylor, Vampire Queen, already has plenty on her plate. For one thing, next week is her birthday-the big 3-1 in human years, and one in undead years. (Yes, she bit the dust on her birthday last year.) On top of that, she still has wedding plans to finalize-and it's not helping that the prospective groom is avoiding anything to do with it. And then there's her decision to stop drinking blood-something she has yet to share with Eric Sinclair, her fianc-who also happens to be the vampire king...So the last thing she wants to deal with is uninvited guests, even if they happen to be the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects the week before her birthday. Some of them don't want Betsy as their Queen, and will do anything to get rid of her.
As if turning thirty last year (not to mention dying) hadn't been traumatic enough. And trying to give up blood is making her really cranky...

Review by Rhinoa
A delegation of European vampires have arrived to pay respects to Betsy and Sinclair. In politics though they have left it very late to do this. When they arrive one of Betsy's friends is with her for a meeting about changing her human lover into a vampire so they can always be together. A shock is in store though as it turns out one of the European's was the one who sired her against her wishes. She demands his death which puts Betsy in the middle of a political struggle.
Review by lewispike
I am getting more and more disenchanted with this series. The soap-opera style is dominating once again. Whilst that might make for popular TV it makes for crap TV, and it's worse in a book.There are multiple threads, as before, but rather than exploring them in an interesting fashion they're all filtered through an increasingly vapid and irritating filter of how they affect Betsy.She might be destined to rule for 1,000 years but I'm left wondering how the hell Sinclair can stand her, let alone apparently love her and want to live with her for the next millennium. I've already got one more book in the series, but trust me, after that, unless it's brilliant, I'm out of here.
