This book was chosen by my book club and i must admit when i first read the blurb i wasn't to impressed i didn't think i was going to enjoy it. I did however really enjoy it. I found it really grabbed my interest and kept me wanting to read more and more. I found myself really invested in the characters and what was going on in each of their lives. I gave this book a 5* rating on goodreads. I would very much recommend this book for anyone looking for a great historical, murder mystery novel.

Betsy starts to feel like she adjusting to life as a vampire and as queen of the dead. Then she has her midnight and spring wedding to plan as she is finally marrying Sinclair. 

Betsy's half sister Laura is starting to show signs of inheriting her real mothers temper which considering her real mother is the devil is really not a good thing. Betsy is keeping her eye on Laura on top of everything else.

I did enjoy this book and i gave it 5* on goodreads however, i have decided not to continue reading the series right now as i was getting a little bored. I read this book in a single afternoon as well. I haven't given up on the series all together but i am just taking a break from the series for now.

Were back with Betsy, Queen off all the dead. Its time for Betsy's stepmothers baby shower with things still not good between Betsy and her father and stepmother things are set to get worse when its let slip that Betsy has a half sister not so bad right?
