Undead and Unworthy by MaryJanice Davidson
Hmmm..... not sure about this one. I was kinda bored with it until the last 3rd of the book, and then it picked up some. But, I really have to say overall I'm disappointed.
First off (and I've seen lots of other comments about this as well), it's really short. Yeah, it has almost 300 pages, but really? The print is big, almost double spaced, and the margins on each page are larger than usual.
Second, while the plot, is good I think more time and attention could have been paid on the big issues. A lot happened to move Betsy's story along, but it all felt too rushed.
And finally, other than the short story in Dead Over Heels, this was the first book after Betsy and Sinclair's marriage, and it didn't seem to play that big of a part in this book.
So, I'd give this one 3 stars, and hopefully the next installment will be better :)
