The Earth has been torn into two parts by an irreversible division. Whether due to nature, or the unknown depths of the mind itself, everyone is now either Human or Hater. Victim or killer. Governments have fallen, command structures have collapsed, and relationships have crumbled. Major cities have become refugee camps where human survivors cower together in fear. Amidst this indiscriminate carnage, Danny McCoyne is on a mission to find his daughter Ellis, convinced that her shared Hater condition means her allegiance is to people like him. Free of inhibitions, unrestricted by memories of peace, and driven by instinct, children are pure Haters, and may well define the future of the Hater race. But, as McCoyne makes his way into the heart of human territory, an incident on the battlefield sets in place an unexpected chain of events, forcing him to question everything he believes he knows about the new order that has arisen, and the dynamic of the Hate itself.

The second book in the Hater trilogy leaves us on a horrid cliffhanger.  To be honest, I started to lose interest about halfway through, but kept at it.  And thank good I did.  It really got moving with twists and turns and huge actions.  Moody definitely knows how to write horror.  I was terrified throughout most of the book.  But I must say that I still don’t like this series as much as the Autumn series.  This is more disjointed.  I found myself connecting with the Haters, but then I had to take a step back and reevaluate.  Should I empathize with the Haters or the Unchanged?  I felt conflicted through most of the book.  I still don’t know.  And maybe that’s the genius of this series.  I grabbed Them or Us from the library so I can finish this series.
