Marc committed suicide in the last book after learning what he becomes from his future self. Betsy is determined to bring him back from the dead; after all she'd already brought Antoine back from Hell.
Adding to her stress are the frequent appearances of both Satan, and to Betsy's horror, her future self. Neither will tell her what she'd done to trigger such a horrid future, but she should get off her butt and fix it so it doesn't happen, of course without telling her how. She's urged by them to stop whining over a role she doesn't want and be the queen.
The author's considerable wit is in full swing, as is Betsy's inability to stay focused on a topic without her mind going in multiple directions with each thought. That aspect was both unique and charming at the beginning of the series. And while still humorous, it's also getting somewhat worn out and even confusing at times. There were some conversations in scenes that I couldn't figure out who said what.
We, not Current Day Betsy, do finally learn after the disaster from the old timeline has been averted, just what Betsy had done to cause it. Nothing truly sinister; she'd had the best intentions. And the answer to diverting the disaster? I didn't see that one coming.
I expect this will be the last Betsy book I'll be purchasing. I don't know if it's me getting older that's causing my difficulty in keeping track of the original thought or conversation that Betsy's apparent ADD hijacks, or if Betsy's lack of focus has gotten worse as the series progresses. But it's been a problem for me in the last two or three books.
I did enjoy the characters and much of the humor, but I found too much of the story distracting.
It's almost like she hates her characters! They are all so busy being witty and sarcastic that it is tiring. Betsy has become a complete dumbass. While she has always been an airhead, she is almost completely impossible to follow and so completely self-involved that she in unlikable! And I always liked her. It's so sad, because just when Betsy seemed to be growing into her role (before the last 2 books), it seems that MJD lost interest. I was really looking forward to seeing what she and Sinclair did with their "lives" but now I fear that there won't be any good ending here for those of us who really cared about these characters.
Betsy insults Jessica about a billion times. It gets old, boring and repetitive. Not funny. I've never had children, and don't plan to have children, but I found the constant insults about Jessica's giant belly to be insulting and demeaning. We get it, she's pregnant and Betsy is jealous because she won't be "#1" to Jessica anymore. Enough with the "belly that ate the world" jokes. They weren't funny the first time or the hundredth time.
Sinclair is a sniveling former shell of himself. I'm so over the "my own" thing. Sack up man!
Betsy is a raging narcissistic moron. (Shocking!)
Laura is barely recognizable.
Everyone kisses Betsy's useless butt for no reason and tells her how great she is, when she isn't really.
Marc comes back but adds nothing to the story.
Antonia and Garrett kind of hang around as useless window dressing.
Betsy does actually do one decent thing for Sinclair, but it takes so friggin long to spit it out that by the time it's said, I just didn't care any more.
Honest to GOD, the best part was the last page. It was actually cute. The story should have started there.
I hope this series is OVER. It has become truly, hideously painful to read.
