Overview

Hatred Day by T.S. Pettibone

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.

Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by the publisher, Chrysanthalix Press, via NetGalley for an honest review. Due to the book description being fairly self-explanatory, I am not going to be giving my own little explanation of what happens. There is so much that goes on in this book, and frankly it is confusing my brain just trying to figure out how to explain it all. In regards to that, I would like to touch on the fact that this book can be hard to grasp at first. Our two authors, twin sisters Brittany and Nicole Pettibone, have created a wonderful and elaborate world for us readers to get lost in and obsessed with. The reason this story can get confusing in the first half is because the reader is being introduced to A LOT of things. With all the lingo and strange names being thrown at the reader and barely explained, it gets hard to keep up with what is happening. I found myself finding it hard to differentiate the characters at first; as well as, understanding what creatures did what and what certain names for things meant. For how elaborate this world they created was, I think this book should have been way longer so that they could have explained things better to the reader. Now don’t let this scare you away from reading, because I certainly hope it doesn’t. You can honestly get through the first half of this book having a vague understanding of what a swangunner is or what kind of beast Snofrid is talking about. By the time you hit about 40% of this book, be prepared to skip out on any plans you might have made for the rest of the day. This is where you will get HOOKED. As soon as Snofrid comes in contact with that Mania Mirror and gets back most of her memories, you fall head first into being seriously in love with this story. This is where the reader connects to the main character, Snofrid, and where we truly understand EVERYTHING (or mostly everything) that is going on in this maze of a story. I felt such an immense connection to Snofrid as I was being carried through her childhood and upbringing, and I was able to understand this world as Snofrid did. Maybe this was a purposeful move made by the authors, maybe it wasn't. Whatever the case may be, keeping me confused and then blowing my mind completely worked. This is also about where the reader falls in love with Lycidious, because trust me darlings…you will. To my readers that will read any book that will give them another “book boyfriend”, look no further. This kid is a serious bad boy, and he will without a doubt put every other bad boy to shame. Lycidious is lethal, dangerous, and on the border of being downright psychotic. He is the shadow or protector of Snofrid who is a half-breed, which means that a lot of people want her dead. Lycidious will basically do anything to keep her safe as it is what he swore to do, and yes readers, that means he will kill for this girl in the most brutal and graphic ways. Yep, murder. *Sigh*…oh how all the girls swoon! Basically, I think I have found a new favorite series. I just can’t get over how imaginative and cutthroat this story is, and it never ceases to amaze me. There is a fantastic amount of detail put into this story, and the idea behind it all is extremely unique. I will be waiting patiently for book 2, Verdict Day, and HOPEFULLY it will be released early next year. GO GET THIS BOOK READERS, you will not be disappointed.

An immensely enjoyable dystopian thriller packed with modern parallels, humor and intrigue destined to delight all readers. The novel delves deeply into timeless themes: Duty vs Fear, Integrity vs Betrayal, Daring vs Defeatism and Love vs Hate. The Pettibone Twins have masterfully crafted an action-fueled tale full of tragedy, strife and hope where five distinct races of alien species (Inborns), Humans, and Half-breeds vie for disparate goals in a vibrant, perilous world with an uncertain future. Who is Snofrid? Why has her memory been erased? Who is truly seeking to assist her in the journey for safety, prosperity and love? What can she do to survive as bait for the most vicious beast of all time? And most importantly, who can she trust? You may uncover the answers to these questions if you are brave, bold and determined to read this outstanding gem from cover to cover. It is a page-turner, a barn-burner and an essential addition to any bookshelf.

Reviewed by Brit Rossie for Readers' Favorite Hatred Day by the Pettibone twins, who write under the name T.S. Pettibone, throws you immediately into the action of brutal world strife with racial and political agendas. Snofrid Yagami, also known as Sno, is an inborn and she must stay undercover as she navigates this racially tense world, but it is increasingly harder and harder since certain memories of hers were stolen and she doesn't know who she knew or who to trust. As the racial tension builds, Snofrid must trust her instincts and make deals with people who may have ulterior motives. It's a tangled and bloody web of relationships and power, and Snofrid finds herself constantly outwitted and ultimately in the center of it - being used as bait. I'm a fast reader, but I must tell you, this book has layers and complex subplots that forced me to go slowly and appreciate everything these authors did. There are a lot of details and so reading too fast can cause confusion and make you turn back a couple pages to catch up. I really loved the diversity of characters. It's refreshing to see people of color as key characters. There is even an eye that is personified. Incredibly creative characterization. The world is creepy and gritty. The violence is pretty intense. This isn't your typical dystopian time waster with a petite, overly brassy heroine. If the rest of the series continues this way, and the authors continue to hone their writing skills, this series could easily become a sci-fi/fantasy classic. I'm looking forward to Verdict Day!

Reviewed by Stephen Fisher for Readers' Favorite Hatred Day by T.S. Pettibone is a fast paced science fiction adventure set in the not so distant future with elements of fantasy thrown in for extra measure. The story begins with Snofrid being sold on the slave market in the slum city of Gehennon. Intrigue builds when a monstrous bidding war escalates for her. When she is sold, there is good news and bad news. The good news is she is purchased by her family. The bad news is that Snofrid can’t remember them. She has retained her scholastic knowledge, but has no memories of her loved ones. Snofrid is an inborn half breed with the power to heal herself. Inborns are low class citizens whose forefathers migrated to Earth from another planet, and half breeds are deemed abominations. She struggles with having to run from people that she can’t remember but feels she knows them. The past that she can’t remember has found ways to manipulate her into performing errands that could easily get her killed. That is until her Shadow, Lycidius, puts her in a mania mirror for three days where she gets to relive her childhood memories, and now is able to embrace her brother Desla (Dez), and her beloved Lycidius, who is honor bound to protect her. T.S. Pettibone does a magnificent job of moving this story along at a fast pace. War is coming between humans and inborns. Half breeds are being hunted down. The authors are able to describe in vivid detail things that affect our five senses with a writing style that uses more of an old school approach, one that is both colorful and fresh. The plot uncovers many family secrets, twists, turns, and surprises while the pages just fall away. The Pettibones are able to artistically deliver the heart breaking emotions of the romantic forbidden fruit that tugs on the heartstrings of our heroes, and of course the readers. Hatred Day has everything you could ask for in a book … and is daringly daring.

Reviewed by Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite The year is 2052 and Earth as we know it is no more. Humans are at war with the Inborns who have migrated to the planet. When Desya learns that his sister Snofrid is set to be auctioned as a slave in the Gehenna Slums, he and faithful companion Neko break all the rules of Inborns and Humans to free her from a certain existence of torturous endurance. Snofrid is valuable, both as a sister and as a healer. As with all Inborns, Snofrid possesses an explicable power that marks her as an important asset to any population. Snofrid is capable of healing herself to full recovery upon physical attack. But it’s not the physical that afflicts Snofrid. Snofrid has lost her memories and is fighting to regain knowledge of the images that haunt her. Who can she trust? Was Atlas Bancroft the man who held her heart? If so, why did Neko treat her as if she were his lost beloved? What was up with Lycidius? Far too many questions for Sno to filter while trying to do her part in keeping her little family safe and, to top it off, it just happened to be Hatred Day. T.S. Pettibone is responsible for setting the stage for the next novel serial rage in Hatred Day. Described as identical twin sisters with un-identical personalities, the California native writing team brings to the page a world set in the not-so-distant future. For readers with any background in the science fiction genre, Hatred Day emulates the perfect landscape for a delicious series. Descriptions are vivid and dialogue weaves smoothly from page one to the conclusion of this page-turning tale. I loved the vivid imagery and name choices. Snofrid is a great name!

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite Hatred Day (Hatred Day Series, Book 1) by T.S. Pettibone takes place in the brutal future of 2052, where earth’s environmental and biological framework is greatly disturbed by the arrival of the Inborns, who look almost similar to humans but with special abilities and higher intelligence. The story centers on 18-year-old Inborn Snofrid Yagami, who’s saved from the slave auction at the Gehenna slum just outside of Hollowstone City, Oregon. Unfortunately, Snofrid lost some of her important memories which will determine if she and her family can survive what’s to come as her home city becomes the center of an inter species war. The Pettibone sisters are without doubt skilled writers. The premise and the mythos of the Inborns are original. However, it took me a while to familiarize myself with the world building and the direction of the plot. That said, the world building and the storyline are well-developed and gritty. If you’re familiar (or a big fan of Game of Thrones) expect some surprising GOT style twists. There’s no easy way in every conflict in Hatred Day; instead the Pettibones let the characters power through them with their wit, strength and some sacrifices. There are quite a number of characters but the story doesn’t suffer from too many of them. In fact, all of them feel significant and each has a distinctive persona. The protagonists also have interesting dynamics between them. The surroundings are deftly detailed and this helps breathe vivid imagery into each scene. This is an engrossing read and I look forward to the next installment.
