Undead, Book 14
Synopsis: If Betsy Taylor has learned anything about ruling Hell it’s: 1) she can’t do it alone, and 2) she doesn’t have to. She’s got the help of a devoted vampire king, a dateless zombie, an exhausted new mom, an unshowered cop, a bitchy ghost, a kindly dead priest, and her late stepmother (“Go Team Satan!”). But the latest major hurdle in her post-dead life is so big she can’t even see it until it’s on CNN.
Betsy’s father and half-sister Laura (a former Anti-Christ with a grudge) have outed Betsy to the world. It doesn’t take long for the story to become 24-7 headline news. What’s more, people are not only prepared to believe in vampires, they want to kill them. For Betsy, social media has never felt so…unsocial.
Before long the mansion on Summit Avenue is swarming with reporters, would-be vampire/zombie killers, and desperate emos begging to be turned. Betsy has been forced into the unenviable role as the reluctant face of the vampire nation. All she knows is, she has to look good—this is hi-def!—and stay true to who she is. H8ers be damned.
Review: When Betsy goes to hell, she takes Tina and Marc with her. They find Cathie, the father of Marcus and the Ant for a meeting where the one Betsy presents the 10 new commandments to them. When she returns to the mansion after receiving a text from Sinclair, she realizes that she was gone for two weeks and that her sister wants to prove her existence (and therefore that of all vampires) in the world. Moreover, Sinclair is annoyed that she does not want him to rule Hell with her.
In short, there is a lot going on in the Betsy life as usual (and I have not told you everything). What change here is to see her take the lead. She actually rules Hell and takes decisions alone even though she has all her support team. This does not prevent her from being as always funny!
There were a few volumes that I had found a little worse but there, I really found what I love about this series. It remains to wait for the next book which will also be the last of the series.
