Being Human: Bad Blood by James Goss


The third Being Human book sees Denise, an old friend of Annie's, arrive on their doorstep. What's more, she can actually see Annie. Denise proceeds to take Annie, Mitchell and George on wild nights out because she thinks they need some more excitement in their lives [Hahaha a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost needing more excitement]. In a bid to get Annie out of the house more Denise makes Annie join an organising committee for a local bingo night.

There's also a nice sub-plot with Bristol's vampires. There seems to be something in the air that's attracting their attantion. This leads to an nice climax.


This is definitely the best written of the three Being Human books. It's the truest to the show and it just comes alive on the page. This is the only one of the books that I could see working as a part of the series, either on page or on screen.

I also love the writer, I've come across him before (Torchwood novels) and while I enjoyed his books they didn't grip me. I'm sad to say that it was exactly the same with this one, I had to keep putting it down.


The Characters are at their best in this book, but even with that compliment I have to be honest and in places I still had problems imagining how the characters dealt with some of the situations, George in particular suffers because of this.

The character created specifically for this book, Denise, is such an amazing character, she had so much life and even though she wasn't from the show, she was easily the strongest character in the book.


Overall, this i san enjoyable book with a good plot and good characters. It has it's flaws, for example, it's difficult to just sit and read it, I personally kept feeling that I had to step away from it. That might just be me though.

The biggest problem for me is the fact that the book can only be described as good. Everything's good but it's not fantastically mindblowing and that's what made me deny this book it's final star. Still 4 stars is more than respectable and Denise alone made it more than worth reading. Although I will say this about all three Being Human books, don't read them unless you've seen series 1 and 2 otherwise there'll be some spoilers.

ps. Annie if you're reading this, they're coming to get you. They won't rest untill they have you with them. Beware Annie.
