Not as good as some of the previous stories, but still entertaining. I could do without the soft porn scenes, however. ( )

1/2/15 - Book 7 in the Vampire Queen Betsy series. This one involves Betsy and the Fiends. The Fiends that remain are starting to regain their "humanity." With their regaining that they also become very pissed off with the Queen and other vampires in charge and decide to take their revenge on being nearly imprisoned for years.

7/18/13 - Good book. Didn't know that I was jumping into the middle of a series but well worth the read. Was quick and easy to read. A new twist on vampires for me was a nice change. ( )

New story arc. New cover art. Read the intro from MJD...otherwise, you may get royally unhappy. ( )

I liked this book but I will say the continued repetitive references to things from the previous books gets old. The books either need to be written as books with their own story with a little back story reference needed or just give up and assume that the reader has already read the other stories. I would say at least 1/4 of the book is writing of Betsy's thoughts about things that happened in previous books. If you haven't already read the previous books then it just makes you feel like you missed something (like an inside joke you don't quite get) and if you did read the books then it is just repetitive.

I will also say that I did NOT like the ending! I really liked Antonia and Garrett and could not believe that they died. Hopefully they will be coming back as ghosts. ( )

Bored, I crossed the carpet in five steps, climbed up on Sinclair's desk, and kissed him.

'This is how you spend your time? Squabbling with people who don't bathe?' (chapter 17)
Tina obeyed me in superficial matters (while you're up, could you get me a glass of orange juice? Could you show Officer Barry the door? Could you hit Sinclair over the head with the fax machine?), but on matters like this, her allegience was clearly to Sinclair. (chapter 34)

Having recently lost her dad and step-mother, Betsy Sinclair (nee Taylor) is adjusting to rather more than just married life. Their untimely deaths have left her and Sinclair as sole guardians of her little brother, Jon. Two vampire parents - albeit vampire royalty - for a decidedly human baby. But then the ghost of Betsy's step-mother turns up at their house. And as stubborn and insufferable as she was in life, she's even more annoying in death ...
