More About the Author

David Moody grew up on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction. He worked as a bank manager before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living. He has written a number of horror novels, including AUTUMN, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since publication in 2001 and spawned a series of sequels and a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Film rights to HATER were snapped up by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad). Moody lives with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon. His latest novel, TRUST, is currently available free online at www.trustdavidmoody.com. Visit Moody at www.davidmoody.net.

Product Description

Review

A brilliant, post-apocalyptic romp of a book that manages to ask big questions about the nature of humanity. Moody delivers plenty of blood and guts, but its the ideas that really pack a punch. A book that thrills on every level. (Doug Johnstone THE BIG ISSUE )

As with Hater, Moody deals with larger themes - notably here, how far will a parent defend the indefensible actions of their child? - within the tropes of a post-apocalyptic novel, elevating it above the multitude of such books currently on the shelves. The final part of the trilogy can't come soon enough. Another bleak and powerfully uncomfortable journey for the reader." (TOTAL SCI FI )

What it does redefine is just how utterly ruthless and downright vile one human being can be to another on the written page. Moody knows only too well that when a line is drawn between life and death people will do whatever they can to stay on the right side of that line. The results are displayed in a language that is all the more brutal for its simplicity. Moody tells it like it is, the scale and nature of his apocalypse deserves no less. A worthy successor to 'Hater' (GRAEME'S FANTASY BOOK REVIEW ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A great follow up to Haters. I bought them together, while I was waiting for Autumn to be available again. I read them back-to-back as I couldn't wait to find out what happened in book number 2.

The books ARE disturbing, and they do 'stay with you' after you've read them, but this is a compliment to David Moody, not a criticism! I agree with the other reviewers who have suggested not reading Dog Blood without first reading Haters.

It's actually lovely to have 'English' books like this - I think that being set in England makes this book all the more frightening.

Well just finished reading both Hater and Dog Blood back to back - excellent reading. They were so gripping that I just couldn't put them down. I now feel like something is missing...... When's the next one coming please?

Format: Paperback
I usually allow myself a bit of time before getting started on the next of a series of books. Rather than reading them back to back, I generally like to let a book "settle" in my mind before embarking on any sequel and usually reading a couple of different books in between. Having read Hater by David Moody in February, I was eager to get started on the follow up, Dog Blood.

After a brief pre-amble to reacquaint the reader (or indeed the uninitiated) to the Hater universe, Dog Blood picks up a little after events in Hater have concluded and we see the principal character brutally killing any Unchanged he comes across. Moody gives no quarter when it comes to the details either; a theme that is consistent throughout the book. Given that many of the death scenes are inflicted by someone using their bare hands, Dog Blood is most definitely not for the squeamish!

I am familiar with some of the author's other work and Dog Blood bears one of his hallmarks in that Moody considers the impact the events he has conjured up would have not only on the populace but the landscape as well. Subsequently, Dog Blood is replete with refugee camps, abandoned homes, cities aflame, mass graves and more.
I have to confess that after a handful of chapters, I was beginning to question how Dog Blood could possibly develop beyond what had already been done. However, develop it does and in a way I had not foreseen at all. What Moody had in store for Danny McCoyne was truly shocking and incredibly striking given that it mirrors events from current global affairs.

On an objective note, any reader coming straight to Dog Blood without first having read Hater will, I'd suggest, not get the full impact of what they are reading.

Format: Paperback
Clocking in at 320 pages, this is the second book of the Hater trilogy and continues the story of Danny McCoyne. It took me four days to read this novel, but I probably would have read it in one go if I had the time. After the masterpiece of paranoia that was Hater, I was unsure where the series could go. This brutally violent and gripping action story succeeds as a worthy sequel by being different, but not at all disappointing. With barely a breath spared between one plot element and the next twist, the narrative builds to an explosive finale that will sit burned into my imagination for some time.

A lot has changed between the end of Hater and the start of this book, so I suggest first reading David Moody's short story Everything and Nothing, (available free on his website) to fill in the details a little.

As Danny searches for his daughter in the remains of social collapse in the UK, we learn just what both sides of the war are willing to do and it raises questions: who are the mindless savages really! And which side is more able to control their violence? Multiple genres blend into a novel of richness and current day relevance. More than live up to Hater, Dog Blood may actually surpass it! I can't wait to read the next book (Them or Us (Hater Trilogy 3)) to see how Danny handles the events at the end of this novel!

Format: Hardcover
This is a blistering follow up to Hater and focuses very much on the war between `them and us'. Exactly which side you fall down on changes throughout the narrative and is a very clever feature of this book. Would you be one of the unchanged?

The UK is decimated by this mysterious outbreak. Survivors group and a violent war of extermination breaks out. The two sides are different but both `human'.

This novel picks up from Hater and is a direct sequel which is very refreshing if you really just want to follow the story. The same main character is there along with a host of new ones.

In true Moody-style, it's sharp, snappy dialogue. Cracking chapters which whizz you through the story like a motorbike. And, a story which is multi-layered but at the same time easy to follow.

The clever part of Moody's work is that he peppers his writing with real observations. Sometimes minute and almost irrelevant, they colour his work, making it all the more real and gritty.

A cracking sequel and thoroughly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Following on from Hater's fast and furious not-quite-a-zombie action tale, Dog Blood follows the same character as he tries to unite himself with his daughter. The country has descended further in to chaos as the Unchanged up the ante against the Haters and what could have been simply rinse and repeat (like the Autumn series) has an interesting quirk. Midpoint, by which point nothing has really happened, Dog Blood turns in to a scenario more akin to the military genre, where the concept (although never directly correlated) of Hater-terrorism emerges. The concept of sleeper cells in a 'zombie' novel is very astute of the author and although it never realises itself with any tension or memorable moments it is enough to save the novel. A shallow read with some interesting moments where Moody shows courage to break free from the pack.
