Book Release – Bad Timing – Battle of the Undead #2 by Nicky Peacock #Vampires #Zombies #Paranormal


This is the second in the Battle of the Undead series.

I had fun interviewing Nicky at the tail end of 2014, when she released the first in the series, Bad Blood. You can find that interview here.



“You know now that monsters are real. Whether they have recently risen to reach for your flesh, or have chosen now to step from the shadows; you are surrounded by them. You also know that I am one too, but I’m all you’ve got and time is running out…” 

There’s no rest for the wicked, especially in a zombie apocalypse. Britannia has used every vampire skill at her disposal to keep those she cares for safe, but with old enemies and unseen adversaries moving against her, she will have to push herself to both her physical and ethical limits to survive. Britannia is changing, but will it be for the better? 


 14+ due to violence and adult situations Please note this is the second book in a series that should be read in order.

About the author

Nicky Peacock

Nicky is an English author living in the UK. When she’s not writing her YA and adult urban fantasy and horror fiction, she is running a writers’ group and helping local schools with creative writing working shops to encourage the next generation of budding authors.

Some random Nicky facts:

She loves chocolate and hates fleece.

She loves dogs and hates monkeys (they look too human)

She always has one day a week where she doesn’t have her phone on or touches the internet.

Organising is her ‘thing’ and she hates being late for anything.

Her favourite colour changes depending on her mood.

She tends to write in UK spelling (you may have already noticed that!)

She can’t live without TV but could easily live without social media.

Her favourite food is a roast dinner, but she won’t eat lamb.

She’s weirded out by having to write in the third person – so I’m stopping now!

Reminder: Book 1 – BAD BLOOD


“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.

 14+ for violence and adult situations
