David Moody has managed to accomplish something that very few others can. He has created an outstanding sequel. This book is equal to if not better than Hater (the 1st book of the series). He has managed to evolve the story of Danny McCoyne, keeping true to the original but he has writen a completely new story. By this, I mean he hasn't just rehashed the original story. This is a sequel that adds a completely new dimension to the story. I loved it.
The sequel finds Danny a changed man. No longer scared of the present or the future. He is now a Fighter. Fighting for his very exsistance in a world that has gone mad with rage. He will do anything and he will kill anyone to succeed in his new environment. He has set himself a task, he will find his daughter and he will free her from the grasp of the unchanged. To do this Danny must not only fight his enimies but he must deceive his comrades in war. In a world that is split into two armies. Danny must be resourceful and brave to achieve his goals. Luckily for him, he has a few tricks up his sleeve.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a thrilling, terrifying read. This book kept me on the edge of my seat from start to end, just like the first book HATER. Once again, David Moody has proved himself as a leading contender in horror fiction.

After finishing Hater I was so mad I had to wait almost a year for the 2nd part. Was it ever worth the wait!! Focusing on the protagonist's desire to reunite with his daughter is delivers not only gruesome, graphic infected fighting but also heart. This man has earned top shelf in my library with his ability to make me want to jump out of my chair and shout at a book as if it were a movie!!

Questionably my favorite. So much happens in this book, so be sure that you've read Haters first. I ran through this book in about 2 days; so if you love a great dystopic trilogy like I do, pick this up ASAP!

The world as we know it no longer exists. The human race is divided into two distinct camps: the Unchanged and the Haters. The latter are people ripped of all social restraints and must kill the Unchanged. Their goal is an Unchanged genocide. The Haters have caused governments to collapse destroying the infrastructure of every nation. They still can think but obsess over killing the Unchanged even family members.
Danny McCoyne is a Hater who hunts the Unchanged without mercy. His goal is to find his daughter Ellis who was taken away from him when he was knocked unconscious after killing his father-in-law. Before he passed out, he saw her and knows she is just like him. The government has relocated the Unchanged inside cities filled with traps like a medieval fortress. Danny falls in with a group that seeks the same destruction as he does. He learns to control his homicidal impulses so he can enter the city because his Ellis is there.
This intelligent apocalyptic chiller is a fantastic horror tale that continues the escapades of the Haters, who are a zombie like humanoids. The species cannot control their basic impulse to slaughter the Unchanged though Danny tries as his love for Ellis supersedes his instinct to kill. Though lacking the cautionary theme of its predecessor, but with the same moody dark atmosphere and a strange flicker of paternal love and hope, Dog Blood is a terrific zombie thriller that affirms David Moody as a strong talent.

When I finished Hater shortly after it came out, I waited with bated breath for Dog Blood—the back of Hater SAID the sequel would be coming out soon, but it just wasn’t soon enough for me!
Dog Blood returns us to the world of the Haters and the Unchanged. Chaos is still unfolding, and Danny is still hot on the trail of his daughter, Ella. This was the storyline that sucked me in the most—I needed him to find his daughter! Danny is now wrestling with the fact that he is a Hater, but, unlike most Haters, he can control the Hate, allowing him to sneak into Unchanged camps and go on missions. But the one thing that still drives him is his daughter. He knows she is a Hater, and he needs to find her.
By the time Dog Blood came out, I was in college. I lent Hater to a friend while I read the sequel. I gave her Dog Blood to read, and when she finished, she threw it at my head and shouted, “Why would you do that to me?!” I think that accurately describes David Moody’s writing. You get sucked in; you fall in love with the characters and become wrapped up in this world that’s utter chaos. But David Moody is a realist at heart—he doesn’t coddle his characters. Brutal things happen. Your heart will break (and race!) reading this book. If you like blood, gore, intense action, and biting your nails down to the nub, I definitely recommend Dog Blood.
The world of Hater becomes so much more complex in this book—the details that emerge, not only about the setting but about the way the Haters and Unchanged now function, make this book one to remember. It’s the perfect sequel to Hater—it answers just enough questions to satisfy you, but raises even more to keep you guessing.
