2009: #40 – Undead and Unappreciated (MaryJanice Davidson)

unappreciated Book #40 was Undead and Unappreciated, MaryJanice Davidson’s third Queen Betsy book.  The back of the book reads:

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.

I found this third “Undead” book to be rather anti-climatic… or maybe non-climatic would be a better word.  When I got to the end, all I could think was “That’s it?  Am I missing pages? Were chapters left out of my ebook?” Not a lot happens here. Basically, Betsy finds out she has a half-sister who’s really the daughter of Satan, goes a little crazy after reading the Book of the Dead for too long and has to apologize to everyone, has one confrontation where she finds out some important facts about her new half-sister, and finally admits that she loves Sinclair.  And… that’s it. Maybe we find out more about this prophecy with her sister in the next book?  All I know is that this one was pretty lacking.
