Why She is a Wonderful Writer:

I was first introduced t the Davidson’s writing through the Undead series, where we meet Betsy, a woman who dies on her 30th birthday and wakes up to find out that she is the new vampire queen. I instantly fell in love with Betsy, the main cast of characters, and the overall story line. Davidson’s writing is witty and fun, blending elements of mystery, humor, and romance all in each book.

I also love that Davidson uses strong female protagonists/characters that aren’t afraid to speak their mind. It’s what mainly attracted me to her books and her style of writing. Her protagonists show their confident and softer side, letting readers know they’re human too (even if they happen to be on the supernatural side).
