    The third Hater post-apocalyptic thriller is an exhilarating dark tale

    As increasingly urban centers turn extinct, the berserker Haters led by violent Commander Hinchcliffe continue their ethnic cleansing of the Unchanged who survived the cataclysm as they were before the pandemic disaster (see Hater and Dog Blood). Someone, most likely a desperate Unchanged, deploys nuclear bombs that devastate English cities like London. This has little direct impact on the Haters continual assault on the Unchanged although the aftermath somewhat slows down the attacks as survival becomes a prevalent issue again.

    As the endless nuclear winter leaves the nation teetering deeper into the abyss, Hater Danny McCoyne finds what he hopes is a peaceful home in coastal Lowestoft. McCoyne is a unique Hater because he controls his species' deadly berserker tendencies. Thus Commander Hinchcliffe deploys him to find the remaining dwindling havens of Unchanged in a Them or Us scenario. McCoyne wants to be left alone, but that is an unacceptable response as far as Hinchcliffe and his hierarchy is concerned.

    The third Hater post-apocalyptic thriller is an exhilarating dark tale as the landscape goes even unbelievably bleaker than before. Fast-paced throughout the entire series, readers will wonder whether the Unchanged and moody McCoyne will survive the Haters' top dog's thirst for blood, guts and power.

    Them or Us is required reading for those who were captivated by

    Them or Us is required reading for those who were captivated by the first two volumes of this trilogy; however, that doesn't mean it lives up to the excitement created by the earlier books. Moody struggles to sustain the drama of books one and two; a difficult task, given the one sided advantage the Haters have over the decimated ranks of the Unchanged. Danny, a character appearing in the first two books, is a Hater able to restrain his violent tendencies, thereby becoming an asset to a thuggish self styled ruler of a Hater enclave. We of course want to know how things play out: will the Unchanged somehow survive as the Haters self destruct? Or is that too naive given their understandable strength advantages? What are Danny's loyalties? Will he ever stop his incessant navel gazing, pondering fantasies of escape from his ties to the enclave or of helping the Unchanged he encounters? Does he have a moral center? Quite frankly, I think the book got bogged down with his existential angst, becoming somewhat tedious as we want to learn the resolution of a war that has destroyed every last vestige of civil society. I know the author wants to hold Danny up as the embodiment of all the &quot;big issues&quot; of what is important in the new aftermath world, but ultimately we are left hanging at the end, with only hints as to what will be critical in that world. After introducing the premise in vol 1 and sustaining the intensity in vol 2 when life hung in the balance, vol 3 then faced the daunting task of winding things down and wrapping up. In that regard it does its job, and as said, must be read by those hooked on the earlier works. I give 5 stars to the entire series.

    It's "Us" ....

    I wanted more Mr. Moody, but am so very pleased with what you gave us in the Hater trilogy. I am excited to start on your Autumn series - so thanks for making it fun to pick up a book again. I can't say enough wonderful things about your fun & smart writing style. A fourth installation please and thanks!?!

    After reading all three books

    I found that it was missing something in the end. All-in-all it was great series and quite the adventure. However, the ending left something to be desired and didn't exactly answer my questions or give me closure.
