** I received a free copy of this book for an honest review **
“What if saving humanity meant facing your deepest fears?
A deadly virus has ravaged the earth. Human survivors spend their days and nights fighting to stay alive in a world now owned by vampires.
Jett’s plans to get further off-grid fall apart when his woman suddenly disappears at the hands of the hawkers – the most deplorable and dangerous humans to survive the apocalypse.
Now, Jett is forced to confront evil head-on as he faces choices that he never dreamed possible.”

This book made me miss my stop on the tube. I was so engrossed in this book that we went whizzing by Victoria tube station and I was at Oxford Circus before I realised I should have gotten off two stops ago. I loved it so much I wasn’t even kicking myself.
Blood Legends: Undead is a short story that follows Jett, a human living in a dystopian nightmare with his lover and daughter. A vampire virus has taken over the country, possibly the world, and all humans are at risk from either vampires or hawker attacks (humans who take advantage of the collapse of society to do as they please).
This book hasn’t yet been released so I’m not going to spoil anything and there is a hell of a lot to spoil. All I can say is that this book absolutely broke my heart. Kim Petersen is a super talented author who really gets into the heads of her characters and brings out the nightmares happening inside. Blood Legends is a hauntingly powerful story that will stay with you for a long time.
From what I gather, this is a sort of prequel to Jett’s full-length story and is going to be released on 17th March 2020. It’s up for pre-order right now on Amazon and I really recommend it if you’re feeling like a dark, urban fantasy/dystopian and don’t mind having your heart broken. Here’s the buy link!
Thanks for reading!
