2nd in the Queen Betsy series. This has her moving out of her house and into the mansion. She also get her dream job in the shoe department at Macy's. This one someone is trying to kill off the vampires of the city and has succeeded a few times. When they target Betsy things don't go quite as they'd planned. Not only do they not succeed they have a sit down with her and the others and they learn that not all vampires are bad. While they call a truce another murder happens so there's still others out there. All in all just light fluff, but super fun to read. ( )

This series of books are essentially silly vampire chic-lit, but they're written so well, and with such a sense of fun that they are a joy to read. Perhaps the whole shoe thing was a little overdone in this book, but it's all part of the development of the main character. A book I enjoyed far more than I thought I would. ( )

Though the main character can be super annoying sometimes, they're light-hearted and fun to read. Plus, I love me the one steamy sex scene per book that I wait for the whole way through, then sigh over when it's finally here. Nice not to just have the whole book be nothing but gratuitous sex scenes like many paranormal romances are. ( )

Non c'è niente da fare: adoro quella pazza scriteriata di Betsy.
Il libro come al solito è un chick-lit vampirico assolutamente esilarante. Impossibile non scoppiare a ridere ogni due su tre e, spesso, anche passarsi le mani fra i capelli per un'indulgente disperazione.
MaryJanice Davidson è brava, molto, e i suoi personaggi sono irriverenti, sagaci, assurdi e folli quanto basta per ricordare al lettore che stiamo leggendo qualcosa di completamente folle ma squisito.

Da leggere e gustare. ( )

The perfect book to read after finishing a tearjerker. I enjoy Betsy's sarcasm and sass! It isn't easy being Queen of the Vampires, but she's easing into the roll, whether she likes it or not.

Sinclair is growing on me, but I would like to see a bit more character building and "wooing" of Betsy. I'm not devastated by this. It's impossible to take these books too seriously. They are fun, light reads with enough humor to keep the blues away. ( )

The Lucy Liu knockoff stepped to the big table in the entryway, pulled a knife as long as my forearm out of a heroic pile of weapons, and handed it to Marc, handle first, much to his surprise.
