Bad Blood by Nicky Peacock

Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Anniek
Britannia is a vampire. She has lived through hundreds of years trying to take revenge on Nicholas. Killing every new vampire he creates Britannia is a force to be reckoned with. She was made a vampire against her will and was held captive for a lot of years. All for the sake of love... When she became a vampire she lost the only man she ever loved. Her heart still belongs to him even though his mortal life ended centuries ago.
Britannia must learn how to work together with Nicholas when zombies are walking the streets. More of them are created by the second. The elders have given them one assignment. Come to a safe place with as many humans as you can rescue. Zombie blood can't be the blood a vampire needs. For that they still need the humans. And so the battle begins between vampires and zombies. Who will win in the end and which species will be left standing when all of this is over?
Britannia is fierce and deadly but she is also very kind and still heartbroken over the loss of love. I really loved the fact that she has so many layers. She is one vampire I would love to have on my side when the world falls apart. Nicholas was the one who turned Britannia into a vampire. He believed she was the reincarnation of the love he once lost. Hoping to rekindle those feelings he held her captive for two decades. Even though she killed all of his new 'children' Nicholas still has warm feelings for her. Maybe this battle will bring them together.
For anyone who has been following me for a while it is no secret that I love a good vampire or zombie story. The fact that the two of them were combined in Bad Blood made it a book I couldn't resist. Nicky Peacock has created a fast-paced horror story in which the vampires are actually the good guys. I absolutely loved the different angles and twists she has chosen to put into this story. While reading this book I kept thinking can it get any better? The answer was yes every single time. This book will be a hard one to top, it's an absolute must-read for every reader who loves this genre.

  1. Although I like some vampire stories, I haven't read many zombie books. This one is an interesting mix of both.
