Betsy Taylor turns 30, gets laid off, is killed by an SUV and wakes up dead all in the same week. The vampire community is convinced she's their prophesied Queen. But she's not having any of it—she's got shoes to buy! And now the undead world is being turned upside-down by a Bela Lugosi throwback and her subjects expect her to take care of it! Why didn't she read the handbook? But her would-be consort, Eric Sinclair, is (annoyingly) ever-present. If only he wasn't so tall, dark, gorgeous...and undead.

Okay, so I read this book about, hmm, 5 months ago. I don't know why but I never got around to putting up a review even though it is one of my all time favourite books. MaryJanice Davidson is so talented. I don't even know the words to describe it. It is well written, interesting, funny and just plain awesome.

I loved Betsy's character. Her love for shoes and girly things made me enjoy the book that little bit extra. She isn't what the typical vampire (or vamps friend) is usually these days. She is still a funny and happy character and I loved that. Her "love interest", Sinclair, was also a great character, although at times it did remind me a bit of Artus out of Swimming with the fishes.

This book is a MUST MUST have I absolutely recommend it to anyone and everyone.
