Review of Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson


Undead and Unwed is about a shoe-obsessed secretary named Elizabeth “Betsy” Taylor who gets turned into a vampire.  The book is pretty funny and moves along nicely.  One of the things that I really like about the book is the way it portrays its gay and lesbian characters as regular people instead of making a big deal about it. I wish more books would do this.

She gets help from her best friend Jessica and makes a new friend, Marc, after she snacks on him.  All of the characters are well developed and work well in the book’s universe.  The story takes place in her first week of being undead, so it’s pretty fast paced. I loved that she wasn’t worried about being a vampire at all, but she was worried about whether or not her cat would hate her and where her expensive shoes went. That’s definitely something I would worry about if I ended up a vampire. Cats rule.  She can be a bit simple at times, but she admits to being a bit shallow in life and not always paying attention in school.

Betsy meets two powerful vampires, Sinclair and Nostro, and has to decide who’s side she’s on. Then there’s that whole vampire prophecy thing to deal with. In the end she makes the right choice, but what does it mean for her going forward?

There are some sex scenes in the book (3 to be exact), but they’re not overly descriptive and the last one leads to a funny moment.

I’ll definitely be on the lookout for other books in the series. If you like books that are funny, with a good story, good characters, action, and a bit of romance then this is a book for you!

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
