The Haters seem to smell the Unchanged. They see the convoy arrive and begin their attack. As they kill, they seem to go into a frenzy, wanting to kill more. Man, woman, child, it doesn't matter as long as the Unchanged are wiped out. Into the fray comes Danny McCoyne. While he is a Hater, he is on a mission. Not so much to kill the Unchanged, but to find his daughter Ellis, whom he knows is a Hater but has been spirited away by her mother, who is Unchanged. Danny is driven to find Ellis. Other Haters want him to find Ellis, as they see the future of their cause to be tied to child Haters, who are more vicious and more focused than adult Haters.
Dog Blood, by David Moody, continues the story begun with his book, Hater. This novel is as suspenseful and well written as the earlier book. Where it differs is the perspective. Starting by focusing on the Unchanged, Moody builds the feeling of dread and foreboding as Mark leaves the safety of the city for the unknown. Adding to the reader's discomfort, Moody is tightly focused on Mark's perspective as The Haters begin their attack. You are drawn in the action, a feeling that is exciting as it is uncomfortable. As the attack continues, you are really beginning to hope that all of The Haters are wiped out and Mark returns, alive, to the city.
Not satisfied with this, Moody shifts the focus to The Haters, in general, and Danny, in particular. Experiencing the attack from Danny's view, it is a totally different battle.I found that this was a really strange feeling; earlier, I couldn't wait to see The Haters eliminated, now, witnessing the attack from a different perspective, you begin to empathize with The Haters. Moody continues this interesting and effective device by shifting the focus of Dog Blood between the two men, until the exciting climax. An excellent follow-up to Hater, Dog Blood is hard to put down.
