''Betsy the Vampire Queen'', properly known as the ''Undead'' series, is a ParanormalRomance book series by [=MaryJanice=] Davidson about Betsy Taylor. Betsy loses her job and is killed in the same day (her 30th birthday), but awakes undead in a funeral home. After attempting multiple times to kill herself, Betsy realizes that she is a vampire not only a vampire, but queen of the vampires.

The series is a humorous jab at many popular vampire stereotypes. While the vampires are played completely serious, Betsy's bubbly personality takes the wind out of their sails.

The books are, in chronological order:
* ''Undead and Unwed''
* ''Undead and Unemployed''
* ''Undead and Unappreciated''
* ''Undead and Unpopular''
* ''Undead and Uneasy''
* ''Undead and Unworthy''
* ''Undead and Unwelcome''
* ''Undead and Unfinished''
* ''Undead and Undermined''
* ''Undead and Unstable''
* ''Undead and Unsure''
* ''Betsy the Vampire '', the first four books collected into one anthology.
* ''Betsy Bride of the Vampire'', a collection of books five through seven, plus the short story ''Dead and Loving It''.

----
!!This series contains examples of:

* AChatWithSatan: Betsy regularly has these. Satan apparently resembles Creator/LenaOlin.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: Betsy isn't all women but she's neurotically obsessed with them.
* AnswersToTheNameOfGod: A running gag. Vampires cannot bear to hear Christ's name or any prayer, as it causes them physical pain. Betsy's tendency to take the Lord's name in vain is therefore unfortunate given her relationship with the vampire Sinclair. So every time she exclaims, "Jesus Christ!" Sinclair winces and says, "I've asked you not to call me that."
* AntiAntiChrist: Laura, the Devil's Daughter. [[spoiler: Mostly.]]
** [[spoiler: As of ''Undead And Unstable'' she seems to be playing it straight.]]
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Book of the Dead.
** Betsy's first engagement ring, as well. It grants your wishes... [[spoiler:[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor in the most destructive way it can.]]]]
* BadassNormal: The Blade Warriors, a group of teenage vampire hunters.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The Book of the Dead pretty much predicts every single plot development.
* BigBad: Nostro. [[spoiler: Though he dies very quickly.]]
** ''Undead and Unfinished'' introduces a new one: [[spoiler:Betsy's future self.]]
* BlackBestFriend: Jessica.
* BlondeRepublicanSexKitten: Betsy.
* CreatorProvincialism: Minnesota is the heart of the vampire world ''before'' Betsy takes over.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sinclair.
* DoingInTheWizard: A really weird case. [[spoiler: Future Betsy writes the ''Book of the Dead'' and sends it back in time.]]
* TheDevil: Appears as a middle-aged woman, in fact, a dead ringer for Creator/LenaOlin.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Betsy [[spoiler: kills Satan]]. No, seriously.
* EmergencyTransformation: Subverted. [[spoiler: Jessica refuses to become a vampire when faced with cancer.]]
* {{Expy}}: Sinclair bears a ''lot'' of resemblance, personality-wise, to the butler from MJD's earlier ''Alaskan Royalty'' series.
* FangThpeak: Betsy Taylor thpeakth like thith.
* FirstPersonSmartAss: Betsy herself.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires: Betsy herself. A large portion of her problems comes from attempting to make every other vampire in the world into one.
* FurVersusFang: Subverted. For the longest time werewolves and vampires each thought the other race was a myth. When they finally meet the results are...awkward, but not actively hostile.
* FutureMeScaresMe: Future Betsy is mighty scary indeed in ''Undead and Unfinished''.
** Laura's attempts to avert this [[spoiler: backfire horribly.]]
* GenderBlenderName: Betsy throws Sinclair's opera CD's from his car in revenge. Leading to (paraphrased):
--> '''Betsy''': Andrea Bocelli? Who the hell is she?
* GeniusDitz: Betsy at vampiredom.
* GhostlyGoals: The Queen of the Vampires can see the dead. They want stuff done.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: How other vampires view Betsy.
** Later played straight with [[spoiler: Ancient Betsy.]]
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Sinclair and Betsy, though that may be "Vampires have good sex."
* TheGrovel: When Betsy turns temporarily evil in ''Undead and Unappreciated'', she attacks her friends. Afterward she tries to grovel but she gets sidetracked into an argument over how much of the possession was her fault.
--> '''Betsy''': Hmm, my groveling wasn't going quite the way I planned.
* HandsomeLech: Sinclair, pre-Betsy.
* {{Hellfire}}: Laura is capable of generating this.
* HeroicBSOD: Sinclair in the second book, when [[spoiler: Betsy's been staked and, they think, killed.]] As Father Markus said, "It would have been touching if it wasn't so terribly, terribly sad."
* HolyBurnsEvil: Vampires are hurt by holy items.
* InsultedAwake: In order to get Betsy out of a near-comatose state, Eric (her fiance) shouts, "I'm terribly sorry, but I cannot go through with the wedding!" She snaps and begins to yell at him before realizing what he was trying to do.
* KissOfTheVampire: Played straight; the kiss of a vampire makes people deeply in love with the vampire.
* [[KnightTemplarParent Knight Templar Sister]]: Laura in ''Undead and Unwelcome''
* LesbianVampire: Tina is technically bisexual and, as such, has emotional sway over both men and women (but not over gay men). However, she prefers women, which causes Betsy a bit of trouble early on.
* {{Motormouth}}: Betsy in a nutshell.
* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Betsy's friend keeps a calendar of her sexual activity to try and encourage her to get more action; Sinclair has daily orgies with his three girlfriends on black silk sheets.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Lampshaded on several occasions with Betsy.
* NotHimself: Betsy struggles with this due to [[spoiler: fasting, The Book of the Dead, and evil future selves.]]
* OneSteveLimit: Subverted with the Ant and Antonia.
** Later subverted when [[spoiler: The Ant dies.]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The majority are extremely weak, vulnerable to nearly all the traditional weaknesses and holy items especially. Betsy, as Queen of the Vampires, is immune to most of the traditional weaknesses.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: They all live together in Cape Cod and some of them are psychic.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: [[spoiler: Marc]].
** Initially, they don't exist until [[spoiler: Betsy makes them.]]
* PetHomosexual: Marc.
* ScrewDestiny: Betsy attempts this, usually to miserable failure.
** It becomes a major plotline after ''Undead and Unfinished.'' [[spoiler: Where Betsy must keep herself from becoming an EvilOverlord.]]
* StableTimeLoop: Over the course of ''Undead and Unfinished'', Betsy becomes part of several. [[spoiler: Subverted near the end, when she meets her evil future self. The future self acts like this is the case at first... and then Betsy ''completely'' deviates from her future self's memories, throwing her off.]]
** The timeline is now completely shot to hell.
* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler: How Satan goes out.]]
* TomeOfEldritchLore: ''The Book of the Dead'', again. The reason Betsy doesn't just speed-read it and know everything? Reading more than two or three pages at a time turns you into a monstrous {{Jerkass}}. This might seem minor, except that when you turn a ''vampire'' into a jerkass... (In Betsy's case, it involved nearly killing Jessica.)
* UngratefulBastard: The [[spoiler: Fiends]] once they regain their intelligence.
* UnclePennybags: Jessica.
* VampireFiction
* VampireMonarch: Betsy and Eric.
* WakingUpAtTheMorgue: Betsy has one of these moments, though it's a funeral home.
* WickedStepmother: Antonia Taylor, Betsy's stepmother. She pursued a married man, destroying his marriage, and tried to turn him against his then-teenaged daughter. She wanted him to surrender full custody to his ex-wife, and when that failed, to send Betsy to military school. Her efforts continued into Betsy's thirties, when after Betsy's funeral, she eats a celebratory lobster dinner and books a cruise. She is even, at one point in the backstory, possessed by Lucifer for a year, and no one notices because she's so nasty by nature. In ''Undead and Unworthy'' [[spoiler: After her death, The Ant comes back to haunt Betsy as a ghost because during life, her sole purpose was to torment Betsy. Part of this new torment includes walking in on Betsy and her husband during lovemaking, and making no apology or attempt to leave.]]
* YourVampiresSuck: How Betsy reacts to the Nostro dominated vampires of the world.
** Amusingly, Betsy is largely a traditional vampire with a stake through the heart immobilizing her and sunlight making her fall asleep. It's other vampires who are more traditional Hollywood Vampires with massive weaknesses to sunlight and holy items.
