Dog Blood (Hater #2) by David Moody

Please note: This is the second book in a trilogy and this review will give away spoilers from the first book Hater, my review for that is here

 

Dog Blood (Hater, #2)

 

Dog Blood again follows Danny McCoyne, this time in the search for his young daughter Ellis. He hasn't seen her since his partner Lizzie escaped from him along with their other two children, but Danny isn't looking for them because they are Unchanged, unlike Ellis who is a Hater like her Dad.

What I like about this book is that the story is told through the eyes of the bad guys, The Haters. Of course as far as they are concerned the Unchanged are in the wrong and they must be killed, we are also introduced to Brutes, super strong human killing machines. Other characters include Mark, he's unchanged and is stuck in a city hotel room with his pregnant girlfriend and her parents among others. 

Dog Blood isn't quite as good as the first in the trilogy but is still a worthy follow up and once the story gets going is as much of a page turner, it won't be long until I read Them or Us (Hater #3) to find out how the story concludes.

 

Rating: 4 out of 5
