Great concept! Chuck Wendig never disappoints. I've yet to read one of his books that haven't impressed me with their "outside the box" thinking.

A zombie book. A vampire book. Both. The usual perhaps but the author's use of words, his descriptive powers enthrawled me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb vampire-zombie-horror novella. 17 May 2012
By Stefan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In this second instalment of his Double Dead series, Wendig has done it again - he has written a darkly humorous, action-packed horror romp. It fast-paced, witty, eloquent and engaging. Just more evidence that Mr Wendig is an author everyone should read.

[Warning: There are some minor spoilers for the previous novel in the series, Double Dead.]

As the story opens, Coburn and Gil are in San Francisco, and in the middle of a zombie-attack. Coburn has been injured in the ambush, so our pair of heroes decide to split up - Gil is supposed to head to "the lab" while Coburn seeks out (relatively) fresh blood to heal his wounds. Both find their plans disrupted by more traps and hazards, not to mention awkward and potentially-deadly run-ins with the locals, living and undead.

I really love the way Wendig writes characters: they are very real and even endearing in their way, never feeling contrived and always displaying a slight twist to standard character types and tropes. Even Coburn, the vampire who thinks of humans as little more than happy meals on legs, feels real. A real a$$hole, true, but real nonetheless. That being said, the events at the end of Double Dead have had a lasting, positive impact on his character. He's less critical of humans, for a start, and his outlook on life is just a shade sunnier (perhaps a result of his newfound ability to walk in the sun...).

"Creampuff" remains a delightfully silly name for the pet of a vampire, even if he is a rat terrier. He also provides some of the more amusing moments in the novel. As with all of his characters, Wendig has imbued the dog with a lot of personality.

Kayla's influence on Coburn is pretty strong and, at times, manages to soften the vampire. But only slightly - when he's blood-starved, there's little that can keep his impetuousness in check. He remains reckless and almost a slave to his baser, more animal urges (food), but Kayla's innocence and good nature is bleeding through. You see, she's riding shotgun in his head. It's a weird development, but he kinda likes it, for the most part. Having taken up residence in his subconscious, though, she's dredging up painful memories for Coburn, which circumstances don't help (sorry to be cryptic, but I don't want to spoil some of the surprises).

The writing is superb and very tight, as is the story's plot. It's visceral and pared back, and didn't have any moments that felt self-indulgent or over-the-top. The author has definitely improved since Double Dead, which was already an expertly crafted novel.

Action-packed and fast-paced, Wendig really puts Coburn through the meat grinder in this story. He is assaulted from almost every side throughout the story, as he pinballs from one hazard to the next. He comes face-to-face with hordes of zombies, another super-zombie "hunter", a weird death-worshipping cult who have disturbing designs on our undead hero, a group of barely-surviving "apocalypse children", and a deadly acquaintance from the distant past.

Bad Blood is another superb example of zombie-apocalypse fiction done right. If you have any interest in SF/F/H, then you should be reading Wendig's fiction. Pure and simple. I'll be reading Blackbirds next of his, pretty soon. This is irreverent, darkly funny, and playfully twists a few genre tropes, while retaining an obvious fondness for them.

If I had just one complaint? I wish it had been longer.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! 17 May 2012
By J. L. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novella follows the continued adventures (mishaps?) of the vampire Colburn who awoke in New York to find himself surrounded by zombies.

After the events in Double Dead, Colburn in in California looking for medical facilities that can duplicate his blood. He thinks he may have a cure for the zombie apocalypse.

If you've read Double Dead, you definitely need to pick this book up and see where the story goes. If you haven't read Double Dead yet, get both books.

Chuck's style and voice carry over into this novella. Can't wait to see where he takes the story with the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to pass the time; strong follow-up! 1 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great way to spend the drive from northeastern Pennsylvania to New York City. Was able to read it in one sitting and it definitely advanced the plot. Am looking forward to seeing what happens next... Hopefully something is happening next, right? Lots of loose ends need to be tied up, and I'd love to see them somehow put Kayla's spirit in another girl/woman's body to bring her back to life, if possible.

And I want to know what the secret Gil shared with Coborn really means for to the entire series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 23 Mar. 2016
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com

Chuck Wendig is my new favorite author. I had read and loved the Miriam Black series (very excited for the new book coming out this year), but resisted Double Dead because I do not like vampire stories. After running out of other stuff I wanted to read and knowing the quality of his other books, I decided to give this a go, and am very glad I did.

This is not a vampire story in the traditional sense. It is a story about a vampire who wakes up to find that his food supply (humans) have largely bean replaced with the walking dead. The hunter must now become the protector, and the struggle that Coburn (the vampire) has with this change in his lifestyle plays out awesomely across the two Double Dead books (both of which you should read).

Coburn and his flock run into a range of awesome post apocalyptic characters, and battle it out with zombies and super zombies (the origins of which you learn about early on in book one).

Tongue in cheek humor from beginning to end.
I've read all the books in this series, and found them to be quite entertaining.
