Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor returns in the ninth novel in the New York Times bestselling series.
Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor is having a tough time getting through the Book of the Dead-until the Devil strikes a bargain. She offers Betsy a chance to finish the cursed (literally!) thing, and finally discover all its mysteries. There's just one catch...
Betsy and her half-sister Laura have to go to Hell long enough for Laura to embrace her dark heritage (after a rebellious youth of charity work) and finally make nice with her mother, aka Lucifer. That means interacting with their family's past. In doing so, they're impacting the future in ways they never anticipated. Of course that's what Mother wanted all along. Damn her.

1 . Now we're getting somewhere!
Posted October 26, 2010 by CRod , CaliforniaI liked this books so much I've read it twice. The series was really getting boring, all Betsy did was whine and was reactive. Well MJD has returned to what I feel is her original edgy voice. Betsy is annoyed and fed up. We finally get some background on Tina and Sinclair and the end has such an unexpected ugly twist I am dying for the next book. I'm really sorry that a lot of readers disliked this book but let's hang on for the ride. Does anyone really think that MJD is going to let Betsy turn on her loved ones? NOT!! I want to know what's up with Jon and why is Marc crazy? And, please please where are Betsy's shoes?
2 . Horrible
Posted August 02, 2010 by Tuck , Brighton, COI have been in love with this series from the start, that being said, this book lacks the light-hearted whit and humor of the previous books; it is dark and mostly uninteresting. There are a few items that are brought to light, but we mostly see Laura and Besty on a trip through Hell and life. If you must read this book, I am begging you to not read the Epilogue. It has ruined the series for me, and I may not read another one.
3 . Major Disappointment
Posted July 25, 2010 by Katie , NJThis is one series that I have been loyal to over the years and I always look forward to the next book. I read so many negative reviews about Undead and Unfinished but I couldn't not buy this book. I was so hoping that all the negative reviews were wrong but this book was nothing like any of the other books.
This series always had a touch of humor and the books to me were a light read. Undead and Unfinished was dark and serious. It's the ninth book in the series and the whole premise changed. The first half of the book was a recap of the whole series. The second half had some interesting tidbits but all of this could have been summed up in a chapter or two and we could have moved on.
This book was so repetitive it was annoying. How many times can Betsy mention something about Hell and then realize she made a pun and then follow it up with "literally." We get it, your are LITERALLY in hell!
My suggestion is that if you are going to read this book, wait until the next one comes out next July because apparently it is suppose to answer a lot of "Unfinished" business.
If you do read it skip the epilogue...worst ending to any book ever!!!
4 . What?!
Posted July 10, 2010 by Cher , Oklahoma CitySo, I am still trying to figure this book out. Three fourths of the book is in the same vain as the previous ones, but then you get to the end and wonder... "Am I still reading the same book?" It gets weird, and creepy, and at the very end, quite gross. It left me not wanting to rejoin the life of Besty, and not caring what happens after this book. I am not sure I will continue reading this series after this one. I didn't like it very much. I feel like I was robbed of a decent series.
