Review: Undead and Unfinished by MaryJanice Davidson

Undead and Unfinished (Queen Betsy, Book 9)



When Betsy gets into a huge fight with her husband Sinclair she decides to make a deal with her step-sister Laura's Mom, the devil. Betsy agrees to accompany Laura on a trip to hell. When the duo gets there they learn the truth. The devil thinks it's time for Laura to embrace her darker side and learn how to travel to any time or place at will so that she can successfully run Hell when the devil retires. But they don't end up traveling to a random time or show up in places that are key to the very future Betsy is now living. Can they make it back without changing their lives as they know it?

Even thought the Queen Betsy series is one of my favorites, I'll be the first to admit that the series was getting stale (read my review of book eight Undead and Unwelcome). But with Undead and Unfinished MaryJanice Davidson really shook things up. And don't get me started on the ending. Before reading the book I read a blog post by MJ who explained that everything will be all right in the end. Together, that little tidbit and this book's ending has me over the top anxious for the next book. I totally understand the negative reviews of this book but if you're a fan of this series, Unfinished is a MUST READ!

I listened to one of these books and thought it was a lot of fun.

Very unusal plot. Thanks for the heads up. And I won't read about the ending first. It takes away all the surprise. And I LOVE surprises.

Undead and Uneasy was the last book I read by this author but I used to really love her so I need to get caught up! Maybe I'll just re-read the series...
