Overview

Them or Us by David Moody

The pulse-pounding conclusion to the HATER trilogy!

The war that has torn the human race apart is finally nearing its end. With most towns and cities now uninhabitable, and with the country in the grip of a savage nuclear winter, both Hater and Unchanged alike struggle to survive.

Hundreds of Hater fighters have settled on the East Coast in the abandoned remains of a relatively undamaged town under the command of Hinchcliffe—-who’ll stop at nothing to eradicate the last few Unchanged and consolidate his position at the top of this new world order. This fledgling society is harsh and unforgiving—-your place in the ranks is decided by how long and how hard you’re prepared to fight.

Danny McCoyne is the exception to the rule. His ability to hold the Hate and to use it to hunt out the remaining Unchanged has given him a unique position in Hinchcliffe’s army of fighters. As the enemy’s numbers reduce, so the pressure on McCoyne increases, until he finds himself at the very center of a pivotal confrontation, the outcome of which will have repercussions on the future of everyone who is left alive.

About the Author

David Moody is the author of Hater, Dog Blood, Autumn and Autumn: The City. He grew up in Birmingham, England, on a diet of horror movies and post-apocalyptic fiction. He started his career working at a bank, but then decided to write the kind of fiction he loved. His first novel, Straight to You, had what Moody calls “microscopic sales,” and so when he wrote Autumn, he decided to publish it online. The book became a sensation and has been downloaded by half a million readers. He started his own publishing company, Infected Books. He lives in Britain with his wife and a houseful of daughters, which may explain his preoccupation with Armageddon.

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. Harriet Klausner

I feel like I had to wait literally forever for this book to come out. Like, I was basically halfway through college before this book was in my hands thanks to Amazon. I was a little disappointed in the US cover design, but that doesn’t fault what’s inside the book.  We return to the world of the Haters and the Unchanged. Our main character, Danny, is still struggling with his Hate. But this world is darker. They’re living in a post-nuclear explosion wasteland. Danny still wants to find his daughter, but things are looking bleak. The Hate holds him from his humanity, which he is desperately leaning towards. This book made me realize I hate David Moody in the best possible way. I hate how good of a writer he is. I hate that he sucks me in with every page and I sit there, begging for something good to happen to this character I’ve grown so attached to. When I finished the book (in less than two days, I might add), I screamed NO so loudly that I scared one of my campers! David Moody is a heartbreaker in the best sense of the word. I have never felt cheated by him during this whole series.  Honestly, if you’re interested even remotely in the world of Hater, you need to finish the series. This book is the perfect end to the series. Yes, there are some loose ends, but they’re acceptable—they are realistic. That’s one thing I love about David Moody—he is a realist, through and through. His characters face hell—and they do so in the way that an actual human being would. If you’re tired of zombies, read this series. I’m telling you—it’ll grip you and give you a good shake.

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 "big issues" 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.

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!?!

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.
