UNDEAD AND UNWELCOME
The tone is decidedly more somber yet still outrageously wacky in the latest chapter of Davidson's long-running Undead series. This book's focus is split between the first-person musings of both Queen Betsy and her pal Dr. Marc Spangler as they face trouble on different fronts. A deft combination of outrageous humor and heartfelt sadness.
Back on the home front, Marc has his hands full when Laura, Betsy's half-sister and the daughter of the devil, goes off the deep end in an attempt to "help" Betsy. Can things get any weirder?
