Product description

Product Description

“I am Britannia. I am your protector. I will fend off the hungry hordes of undead hands that reach toward you. I am your steadfast defender. I will stand between you and the zombie masses as they try to taste your flesh. I am strong, unyielding, and dedicated to your survival. All I ask from you… is your blood.”

A 500 year bloody game of vengeance will need to be put on hold if vampires are to survive the zombie uprising. Bitter enemies, Britannia and Nicholas must work together to save un-infected humans, delivering them to a stronghold in Scotland.

Unable to drink the zombie blood, vampires need humans to stay alive. But will they tell the survivors who they are, and what they want from them? Will Britannia be able to hold back her vengeance? Is survivor Josh the reincarnation of Britannia’s murdered true love? And can she bring herself to deliver him to the safe hold?

Survival instincts run deep, but bad blood can run deeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urban fantasy and zombies...what more can a gril ask?! 19 October 2016
By Stacey Brutger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

I love Urban Fantasy, so when I saw zombies in the blurb of Bad Blood, I was sold!

Bad Blood started off with Britannia stalking her prey…a fellow vampire. I loved the action and drama and was immediately sucked into the story. Britannia had a tragic start to her life as a vampire, and I immediately found myself sympathizing with her.

Nicholas came off as an ass for his treatment of Britannia, but as the story unfolded, I began to understand him more and more. He honestly seemed to have feelings for his protégée Britannia. Unfortunately, he’d been a vampire a very long time, which translated to him being a very manipulative b*stard. By the end of the book, I found him a bit enduring. Which left his actions…or lack of actions…half way through the last fight scene a little confused. Why did he just leave?

The villain was just brilliant. What’s better than a friend-turned-enemy who knows your every move?! Part of Britannia and Nicholas didn’t really believe he couldn’t be saved until it was almost too late. The action and fight scenes kept me glued to the pages. The interactions between the characters added another dimension to the book. Since the story was told from Britannia’s view, the majority of the humans were portrayed as sheep, until she began to get to know them more. For the first time since she’d been turned into a vampire, she began to let other people in her life…and she wasn’t sure she liked it.

I was surprised at how quickly the world change at the zombie apocalypse. While the plot to Bad Blood was interesting, the zombies in the book were nothing special. I think I was expecting more visceral emotions and gore…more horror or something. The characters were vampires, so they didn’t really have a mortal fear of them, and the zombies became really nothing more than fodder for them to kill. The only downside to the book was it ended way too quick! While the book gave us a whole story arc, it seemed more like an episode than a full length novel. I found myself fascinated by Bad Blood and would love to eventually continue this series if the price lowers to match its novella size.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
3.0 out of 5 stars 7 March 2015
By Once Upon a Twilight - Published on
I'm a HUGE Twilight fan, and since the series came out, it seems that the bookshelves are overflowing with vampire books. Bad Blood, however, is nothing like the other books out there. First of all, this book puts vampires vs. Zombies. I mean, how cool is that? There were things I liked about the book, but there were also things that I didn't like.

First, the things I liked. My favorite character was Britannia (even though it's hard to say). She's got a kick-butt attitude and is comfortable in her own skin. Not only does she save innocent people from other vampires, she also has a humorous side as well. She even has a sensitive side, which also makes her more complex. And she has blue hair! I also thought there was a lot of action in the story and I didn't get bored around the middle. I also liked how the author added in the Josh character. It made it a lot more interesting! I wasn't a fan of Nicholas at the beginning of the novel, but by the end I actually liked him.

And now, what I didn't like too much. There were times where I felt some of the descriptions where a little too much. I mean, I like knowing what a place looks like and how a character looks, but sometimes it felt a little overkill. Also, there were times where the writing was a little too cliche. It was an attempt at humor, but came out silly.

Overall, I really enjoyed the premise and characters of the story. It was definitely a unique story that was very creative. I would recommend this to my friends who like both zombies and vampires. It was definitely action packed!

Nicky Peacock’s Bad Blood is the PERFECT Halloween read. Full of gore, a BA heroine, and tons of snark, this vampires vs. zombies dystopia is made for horror lovers and adrenaline junkies alike.


•For a topic so dark and dismal, the zombie/vampire apocalypse, Bad Blood is surprisingly light-hearted and a delightfully quick read. The playful banter between Nicholas and Britannia speeds the plot along and keeps the reader constantly entertained. They’re charming together, witty, and the simmering tension is enough to make anyone eager to see what happens next.

•Britannia is one fiercely independent lady with a grudge the size of a boulder resting on her shoulders. She has no filter, is prone to bouts of unmatched violence and carnage, and laughs hard at full on murder. While this may seem like a calculated and heartless killer, Britannia has lots of love to give and it is her love that preserves her humanity. Britannia is haunted by a romance from her past, a soul mate, that she can’t get over and it is his memory that dictates her life and fuels her vengeance. It’s this side of Britannia that wins you over and makes you hurt for her, the part of her that was robbed of her human life and never got a chance to live out her love. On a lighter note, Britannia is a Doctor Who junkie, loves rock bands, and has dazzling blue hair. She’s quite the
eclectic, eccentric character.

•Britannia’s battle rage is epic. She becomes this demonic, bloodthirsty creature of doom. Quick on her feet and overly confident in her abilities, she rushes headfirst into hordes of zombies, jumping, kicking and severing limbs.

•The plot is clearly defined and doesn’t waver or leave any unanswered questions.

•The final showdown is like a rebirth for Britannia and it’s almost poetic, well as poetic as slaying zombies and defeating the bad guys while barely escaping by skin off her fangs.

•Scenes with Danny and the children are warm and compassionate. The way that children look at monsters with intrigue and clarity is unique and highlighted. While the parents are busy freaking out and complicating things, the children go with it and think it’s pretty cool.


•Some of the British references went over my head a little. The Doctor Who ones were priceless but some celebrities and terms took guesswork and a quick internet search.

•The action scenes blurred together. There was so much battle that it became almost monotonous and lacked detailed description. Cleaving off heads with a scythe is good and well, I want to envision it down to the blood spray and pulsing arteries. (That may be a personal preference, however, as the story went on there was a shift to more telling than showing during battle scenes).

•Love was a barely there thread of an idea. The relationship between Britannia and Josh was weak, sudden, and didn’t have time to evolve. Slight instalove.
5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-butt Vampire and Zombie Novel! 6 December 2013
By Reese's - Published on
I received a copy of Bad Blood for an honest review.

Oh no London has been taken over by zombies!!!

If any of you frequent the blog you know I love Vampire novels. Any vampire novel I can get a hold of I will read it no matter if I have read the story line before or not. Despite the fact that the main character is a vampire and my love of all things vampire I still was a tad hesitant about reading Bad Blood because the story also contained another supernatural creature I loath to read about or watch. Zombies. I hate all things zombies I think they are so yucky.

While the zombie thing was a tad putting off it did not stop me from tearing through this book in about a day. I loved Bad Blood! Britannia is such an amazing protagonist! She kicks major butt, has an awesome sense of humor, and despite her being hundreds of years old she is insanely relatable.

Zombies have taken over London after a virus hits full force. Britianna and her arch enemy and creator Nicolas are the only two vampire left and their job is to find any survining humans and bring them too the Elders. The problem? The zombies seem to have a ruler and that ruler is stronger than they were would have thought, and it’s someone they know.

Loved this book! Ah so good. I couldn’t put it down! Bad Blood is action packed with a semi love story but not really. I honestly loved it because the main character, she totally made this book for me and I would highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys vampire or zombies books and enjoys a kick ars adventure!

Thank you author Nicky Peacock for sending me this amazing book I honestly and truly enjoyed and appreciate it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Vampires and Zombies. YAY! 30 August 2013

I really enjoyed this book. It is another vampire book but honestly I have enjoyed vampire books before they were popular, during and still to this day. This story also has my other favorite characters in it which is zombies.

The book starts out just before the zombie outbreak but jumps right into the action and the path to safety for not only the humans but the vampires also. There seems to be very few survivors of the zombie plague and unfortunately vampires can also be turned if bitten enough times or if you drink the zombie blood. There was a bit of a debate in this book about whether a vampire that has become a zombie should be called a zompire or vambie. Personally I have to side with Nicholas on this one and go with zompire because vambie does sound like a Disney character. By the end of the book they are still trying to get themselves and the survivors to safety so I am looking forward to the next book.

I really liked the conflict between Nicholas and Britannia. With all of their previous history I am curious if they will ever be able to atleast be civil to each other. Those two really helps to make the conflict in the story even better instead of just being a fight between zombies and vampires. They are able to unite together to fight against a common foe but then they go right back to fighting.

What I did not like was not really a big issue. I would have liked Britannia to stop being so blinded by the past and her hatred for Nicholas. However this also as stated above helped add a little depth to the story as well so kind of the fence about it. I think as we move along in the story we will get to see Britannia grow as a vampire already I see a little change in her.

All in all I really enjoyed reading this book and I will definitely be reading the next one.

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
