This one has Betsy's birthday coming up and she doesn't want a surprise party. That is pretty much the start and end to this book. There's a delegation of European vampires that come to visit and we learn that one of Betsy's pals was actually turned into a vampire by one of them which is one of the big plot points in this book. There's also a zombie in the attic which comes up repeatedly but is really not a major plot point. ( )

Still all over the place as far as plot. There's a slightly darker tone to the storyline. ( )

I like to read these for a lighter read but I am hoping the series gets better fast. First if you don't know before starting this book that there is a short story before this one and read it first when you read this it will feel like you missed a book.
Second I'm so tired of how Betsy makes everything to be about her. It's getting old. I'll keep reading and hope it gets better but I don't know how many more I can handle. ( )

These books are great light reading. There's never much in the way of plot, but the heaping helping of character and humor makes up for it. Very raunchy, and a lot of fun. ( )

I think this is my favorite Queen Betsy book so far. The mysterious European vampires – are they friend or foe? What’s wrong with Jessica? Is there really a Zombie in the attic? And if so, what’s he doing there? Along with appearances from some of our favorite guest stars, Sophie and Liam and Garrett and Antonia (the werewolf, not the stepmom…although, the stepmom makes an appearance as well). Betsy herself actually seemed a little bit brighter, as well, which is nice, because the one thing I lament about her is her dim superficiality. She does state it rather eloquently though when she mentions that Eric is regal and commanding, Tina is smart, Jessica is a gazillionnaire, Antonia is a psychic werewolf, Marc is a doctor, Laura is the devil’s daughter, Cathie can walk through walls and she, Betsy, has the least to offer of all her friends even though she is, nominally, the Queen. When looked at from that perspective, Betsy becomes a more sympathetic character, and her foibles can be overlooked. She didn’t ask to be the queen, she just is. And apparently, vampire queens aren’t chosen for their I.Q. Okay. I can live with that, as long as there are enough other fascinating characters surrounding her. That number continues to grow, so I am optimistic. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425215997, Mass Market Paperback)

This New York Times bestselling author's Undead series is more popular than ever!

With her birthday coming up, Betsy isn't in the best frame of mind to face the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects. Playing politics is not her strong suit, especially when she finds out her best friend Jessica may have a life-threatening illness. Sure Betsy can save her life by taking it-isn't that what friends are for?-but the choice isn't in her hands.

With her fiancé Eric dodging all the wedding plans, Betsy's plate is full-and not with birthday cake. But who has time to pout? Not even a reluctant vampire queen, who is taking it one high-heeled step at a time in MaryJanice Davidson's creative, sophisticated, sexy, and wonderfully witty series.
