Hatred Day 
by T.S. Pettibone
(Hatred Day, #1)
Publication date: January 29th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Young Adult


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 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.


My Review:

Snofrid is a young woman of eighteen years who has lost some of her memories. She doesn’t remember her family or friends but she remembers her education. She also remembers that she once went to the University and hopes to return one day to further her career. Her brother and her best friend both hover over in the beginning making sure she doesn’t do or say anything in public that could get her in a lot of trouble and behind bars.

Snofrid is an Inborn an alien from another planet. Her ancestors came to Earth years, years and years ago before she was born. They left their own planet to escape war and to have a better life but the life they have on Earth is not much better but at least they are alive. Inborns are considered to be the lowest class of people and are not treated much better than an animal.

The Inborns are getting fed up with the way they are being treated and are about to cause an uprising against the humans. Snofrid wants to help her people and wants them to have a better life and will do whatever she can to make that happen if it is in her power to do so. But at the moment her number one priority is her family and making sure they are safe. Snofrid will do whatever is necessary to get her family safely out of the city before it is to late even if it means putting her own life in danger and that is just what she does in order to get some of the things they need done for their safe passage out of the city. She makes a deal with her savior or the devil himself only time will tell.

Can Snofrid get her family safely out of the city before it is too late? Will she make it out alive herself? Will the Inborns cause an uprising against the humans? Will she get her memories back? Will she ever know her brother again? Will she ever find out and know who her friend Lycidius really is?

I really like the world that the authors created for Snofrid and her family. I loved that they came from another planet. I really liked going with Snofrid on all of her journeys and seeing her world through her eyes. There was somethings that wasn’t so nice like when Snofrid was sold as a slave and Hatred Day was very sad when they lost some one very close and dear to them a very good friend who died to save them and other Inborns. That made for a sad day indeed.
If you like science fiction and fantasy all in one story then I think you will like Hatred Day it is unlike anything you have read before. It will take you to places that you have never been before.

It overwhelms me as to all the time and hard work that the authors put into the writing of this story. You can see it floating right off the pages. The info that they have on their website about the Inborns and all of the characters is just so overwhelming and shows the hard work that they have put into this story.
