Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author MaryJanice Davidson is back. So is Betsy Taylor, "everyone's favorite vampire queen" (Bitten by Books), and this time Betsy's going viral.
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 postdead life is so big she can't even see it until it's on CNN. Betsy's father and half sister Laura (a former Antichrist 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 of 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.

Ambling at first, but back in the groove

This book 14 is back in the groove. It starts off a little rambling, but by midway through the novel finds its groove. I don't want to give anything away, but lots of good stuff happens in the last half of the book where you have to say -- finally Betsy has arrived. For the 14th in the series, Davison has done an excellent job of keeping Betsy interesting and growing, this is as much as a ditsy vampire "trope" can. Trope is Davison's latest cool word and she used it a bunch of times in this novel -- she must be reading the theory of writing or something.

Anyway, trope or not, this is a very nice next installment. I am looking forward to the next one. I wonder where she is going to go from here. As you surmise, I recommend Undead and Unforgiven. Listen on!

Much better

I've really had a hard time with the last few books. I'm not a huge fan of so much internal dialogue from Betsy. Sometimes it goes on for so long I forget what's actually going on in the back story. This book had some, but not nearly as much as the last few. I love the story, and it was nice to see it move along.
