Undead, Book 8
Synopsis: FIFTY THOUSAND ANGRY WEREWOLVES.
That’s what Betsy is facing when she takes her werewolf friend Antonia’s body to Cape Cod, where the Pack resides at Wyndham Manor. Because Antonia died in her service, Betsy is alive and well—and wracked with guilt. She has no idea if the Wyndham werewolves will greet her with fangs or friendship.
While Betsy and her husband, Sinclair, try to make nice, their legal ward, BabyJon, freaks out every werewolf he meets. Meanwhile, Betsy’s posse back at the St. Paul mansion is not LOLing. Increasingly frantic e-mails alert Betsy to her half sister’s increasingly erratic behavior. Looks like the devil’s daughter is coming into her own—and raising hell. All in the name of making Betsy’s life easier, of course.
Review: I must admit that I have not read the 7th volume but after the 6th I was curious to get into a new adventure of our beloved Betsy. And well, I loved this eighth volume. I wanted to have the chance to discover more information about the werewolves and this novel allowed me to fulfill my wish.
Betsy, Sinclair and Jessica go to the territory of the werewolves to give them the body of Anthonia and to answer the questions they can have as they want to know what exactly happened. It is hard enough for our heroine who deals with the death of her friend but now, more than that, everyone is watching her as if she is the enemy. But Betsy doesn’t like this situation and she is determined to make friends … or enemies (yes, because it is often associated). In addition to this, we will follow the Marc’s life through his diary to know what is going on at the mansion with Tina and Laura. It was really pleasant to be able to follow both stories. They are equally interesting and it was fun to know everything. Well Laura went crazy with all these Satanists who want only one thing: to do whatever she wants, which is pretty funny. Especially when Marc does not know what to do and begins to be a little scared of her actions. The devil manages to change her daughter little by little, without anyone to notice it. I’m curious to see what will happen when Betsy will not be able to bring her back to her reason. Because her sister’s enmity towards vampires only grows more and more.
I enjoyed this new novel, it’s a really fast read. It was very interesting to see the Michael’s pack. It is in fact composed of characters rather atypical. Lara is a child we discover a little more with each novel and it is quite intriguing to see her behavior with others. We also have many questions about the baby here. In Volume 6, we had already some questions as we can notice some strange events whenever he is present and Betsy is now trying to understand what is happening. We can therefore discover the truth about him. It was pretty cute and quite handy I must say. Each of the novels allows us to understand a little more each protagonist and I’ll wait for Volume 9 with pleasure.
