Hatred Day (Hatred Day #1) by T.S. Pettibone (Review)
In a dark magical sci-fi world, humanity's hatred has reached its climax. After a war between humans and the alien Inborns, hatred grows and thrives. Although there is some sort of truce, inter-species violence is still thriving while prejudice and hatred become the bread and butter of everyone. Snofrid is an Inborn pretending to be human. After being captured and having her memories erased, her life becomes insanely dangerous as the hatred grows and the dreaded Hatred Day approaches.
I did not enjoy Hatred Day. It was incredibly hard to read and complete. I found it way to dark and almost impossible to connect with. All of the characters were in one way or another emotionally unavailable and that leaves the readers struggling to care about them. There also seemed to be way too many characters with crazy long names, making it impossible to keep track of them and to remember who was who. The only person I really could keep track of was Snofrid. On the positive side, the narrative voice of the author was very good. It was smooth and nice, and would have been amazing narrating a better story. I do not recommend Hatred Day and give it the rating of TWO STARS OUT OF FIVE!
