Publisher's Summary

Dark magic, unknown enemies, monsters of every stripe - FBI profiler Jace Valchek has seen it all. In this bizarre parallel universe, shape-shifting werewolves and blood-thirsty vampires don't even warrant a raised eyebrow. That is, until Jace has to face what life might look like as one of them....
It starts off as just another run-of-the-mill assignment: to track down the rogue don of a mafia werewolf family before he upsets the delicate balance of the underworld. But Jace wasn't counting on being bitten...and soon she's fighting the growing wolf inside her with a startling antidote - vampirism.
Stopping a bloody gangland war won't be easy when Jace is feeling some new, and very inhuman, desires....

Fighting to be yourself in a world of fang and fur

What made the experience of listening to Better Off Undead the most enjoyable?

Getting used to this narrator takes a bit of time, but what I do love about her is her distinctive voices and comedic timing. I laughed out loud multiple times at the delivery of the main character's dog! This book especially deals with a bit of higher emotions for the main character than other books in the series and I feel the narrator did a great job of expressing these emotions which makes a big impact on the overall feel of this book. In the series as a whole I feel like the narrator really nailed this one better than those before and I'm looking forward to the books to come.

What did you like best about this story?

That's a hard one! I liked how the series got back on track for me from the last book. I was very happy for that. I was REALLY happy for the ending!! I won't give it away but I feel like there was hope and a sense of moving forward for the main character that she needed to allow the series to grow - LOVE! I like that the main character is a fighter. She's not perfect by any means, but she's allowed to have a few moments to be sad and feel what every person does - alone. Then she comes back to fight. She fights for who she is and what she believes in... and how can you not root for that kind of character! I like that the book was multi-leveled with the emotional situation for the main character and the mystery case going on. I felt like this book was a well rounded book and we got to see more into the past of some of the supporting cast that was wonderful. I don't think I can keep it to just one thing I liked best about the story.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend reading or listening to this (or any) series in order.
I'm really enjoying this series! I feel like each book moves quickly while still taking the time to get to know the characters and the growing complexities of the relationships as well as the world created for this series. I'm really looking forward to more books in the series to come!!!

Much better than last!

First of all, I didn't hate the last book, but it was confusing and hard at times. I see why people got turned off by it, and I agree with others, you could skip it all together and be fine for this book. This book brought you back to the world of the previous two books that you expected to find yourself in. I think you should ignore the review about her "boyfriend!" I was waiting all book long, every time she talked to a guy, thinking will this be her new boyfriend? Am I going to hate him? It's a very misleading and bad spoiler. She doesn't have a boyfriend!

The book is good. Looking forward to another.
