About the Book

In the year 2052, it’s not love but hate that unites the world.

Humanity is unified against the Inborns, an extraterrestrial species with godlike intelligence and abilities whose arrival on earth caused an environmental and biological crisis.

Enslaved and despised even by her own Inbornkind, 18-year-old Snofrid Yagami reawakens to the world after having her memories stolen and is certain of only one thing: she will do anything to ensure her freedom. But her resolution is soon tested when the son of a high-ranking human official is murdered and her home city becomes the center of the interspecies war, one that might see the Inborns purged. Desperate to find a way out of the city for herself and her family, Snofrid risks making a deal with the manipulative Inborn Commander, Hadrian, and his brutal cadre of soldiers. Her task is simple: take part in a historic hunt that will bring wealth and fame to all who survive. Unfortunately, Snofrid’s role is one in which survival is rarely seen—the bait.



“The pleasingly complex plot moves its large cast of memorable characters through a carefully controlled escalation of dangers, with Snofrid and her comrades at the heart. This confident and captivating novel should leave readers eagerly anticipating future volumes.” – Kirkus Reviews, (Starred Review)

“All the characters (in Hatred Day) are authentic and unique, and the fluidity in the writing style gives the book a good pace and movement. The author (s) blend science-fiction and fantasy together effortlessly, making readers wait in anticipation for the next volume. The book has all the ingredients that will hold the attention of readers till the very end.” – Readers’ Favorite, (Five-Star Review)

Totally Addicting

I loved this book so much that I ordered a physical copy while I was still halfway through the eARC I received. The second book’s release is so far away, and I’m DYING for it.

Nearly every blogger runs into what I’m dealing with in regards to this book: I loved it so much, that I honestly can’t organize my thoughts. Should I talk about the high speed action and danger that kept the characters (and me!) on their toes? Or should I talk about how I fell hopelessly in love with Lycidius with no hope of ever recovering? From the characters to the plot, this book managed to woo me in a way that I haven’t been wooed in a while. (If you follow me on Goodreads, you’d know that I’ve been steadily reading books that just didn’t end up being for me.)

Snofrid is smart and unbelievably brave, but she’s also no infallible. She has been through hell by the start of the book, and she had her memories stolen, leaving her with no clue who most people are. Her memory loss is very selective, as the person who stole her memories only stole her memories of who people are. Seeing her navigate relationships with people she was close to was pretty interesting, as they remember all of the history they have, even if she doesn’t.

With doses of action, politics, and romance, Hatred Day is an awesome read for anyone who loves dystopians with a dash of sci fi. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
