Undead shopaholic Betsy Taylor has found that being vampire queen has more problems than perks. It may be easy to find blood in the dark of night, but try finding a strawberry smoothie. And employees at her nightclub Scratch have been giving her nothing but grief since she killed their former boss. Some people...But Betsy's "life" takes an interesting turn at a baby shower for her wicked stepmother, who lets it slip that Betsy has a long-lost hal f sister. Now twenty years old, this girl just so happens to be the devil's daughter and destined to rule the world. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly What's a vampire queen to do? Betsy Taylor has a lot on her plate-operating a nightclub for vampires and searching for essential fashion items consume her and allow little time for socializing. When she learns that she has a long-lost half sister, alleged to have been fathered by Satan, she remembers a prophecy predicting she and this person will rule the world together. Her satanic sibling turns out to be a sweet, unaware college girl with a clergyman father. Betsy tells the story, which poses a problem for narrator Wu, who describes events and filters other characters' dialog through her own flat, terminally hip, and world-weary delivery. This monotonous tone makes it difficult for the uninitiated to follow without serious concentration. Davidson's Undead series has gained a loyal group of fans who will be eager for all the dish from the queen herself. Turns out sibs will be sibs, dead or undead.
