Snofried is like MLK and judges by the individual character (not by "group (non) think" Marxist, Socialist standards which destroy individual identity).

It is not even one of the usual "hate whitey" books since Cid, another super cool, bad-ass character is ginger-haired. Imagine! And another "half-breed inborn" is black, trustworthy, lovable and brave to the core.

So, does TS Pettibone's Christian worldview (love everyone--even half-breeds)) shine? Absolutely, for if they are not true Christians, they write like ones. (less)

This was an okay YA dystopian, but I lost interest as it went along.

This was a story about a world where aliens called ‘inborns’ had taken over the planet Earth after having to leave their own planet. There was some slave trading going on, and a bit of a rebellion of the humans verses the inborns. The day the aliens had landed was dubbed ‘hatred day’ and things general

Thank you to Chrysanthalix Press and T.S. Pettibone for my copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Sadly this book wasn't for me, it did have some interesting parts but then it would go off into something completely different and I would lose interest in it. This happened over and over and now I'm cursing myself for reading on hoping at some point it would keep me gripped.

The story follows how aliens come to take over planet earth (or live as one with us? I'm not sure) as they have left

Opinion: First, take a moment to appreciate that cover. It's damn swoon-worthy. The dark side of me that has a pitch black soul is tingling guys, tingling.

As I write this, I am literally having a side conversation with a fellow book nerd on Bookstagram about how incredibly disheartening and frustrating it is to fall in love with a book, finish said book, and then realize that there is

"The pleasingly complex plot moves its large cast of memorable characters through a carefully controlled escalation of dangers, with Snofrid and her comrades at the heart.

I'll make this short and sweet, since I plan on reviewing the book on YouTube very soon.

I read a lot of young adult fiction. I've come to be well acquainted with the average "first novel" that makes it to the shelf, usually based on its perceived profitability from an overeager publisher. This does not always equate to subpar books--even some seriously obvious cash-grabs are still well-written, after all--but more often than not, these stories reek of vapidity and desperateness for movie studio

This story is about an inter-species war between humans and inborns, the extraterrestrials who opened a portal to earth, and in doing so, permanently destroyed the environment.
Everyone -- humans and inborns -- must wear gas masks.

The bigger issues of war are not as important as the small war raging in Hollowstone.
Our protagonist is 18 year old Snofrid, an inborn whose memories have been stolen.
She and her family have been posing as humans and living peacefully in Hollowstone for several years.

The thing that really caught my attention about this book(other than the cover) was the blurb.It was really fascinating and sounded unlike any other book I'd read before.And let me tell you it is completely different from all the other dystopian books out there!!

The book starts off with a slave auction where Snofrid an 18-year old Mystish Inborn who can heal herself is going to be sold off.Her adopted brother Des and their friend Neko make

Hatred Day is a breath of fresh air in the sci-fi/fantasy book market that seems to have become saturated with predictable and frankly boring tropes. The classic "young protagonist of unknown origins goes on a quest to save the world" seems to have been replaced with a somehow more popular alternative of a protagonist, often a young girl, who leads angsty teens in a rebellion against the evil adults/corporation/society, all set in some dystopian future (I'm looking at you, Hunger Games and Diver ...more

I really liked this book a lot. The world the authors created is so complex and crazy intriguing. It was touching to see how Sno cared about keeping the people she loves safe. Not telling them about the hunt she was involved in with the Commander, was a wise choice considering the timing of events. I enjoyed reading about the past and what it was like for her and Lycidius growing up. It was important to see how Lycidius really loved her in childhood. The authors portrayed Lycidius' behaviour in ...more

Lots of action. Unique premise. Original mythos.

Hatred Day is a story about a girl named Snofrid, a member of an alien race trying to coexist with humans, set in a world that has been distorted and evolved by their arrival. It's set in the future, inhabited by a society that has degenerated to savagery. Magic has found its way onto Earth, and technology has advanced by half a century to when the story takes place, in the year 2052.

First of all, I'd like to thank Chrysanthalix Press or whoever it is who approves netgalley requests. They were the only company that accepted my request.
Anywho, the book. I wasn't even able to finish it. I truly tried, but it was just so hard! I was always lost as to what was going on, and I had SO many questions. What's with the gas mask? How old are they? Where are they? America? Japan? I'm sure some of these were answered later in the book, but I didn't feel the need to continue if I didn't

This book had a very unique premise that I found to be a breath of fresh air. The book is definitely a slow build with a lot of different things going on that can be a bit hard to keep up with initially. Once we get a little more information about the historical details and background, a lot of that initial build snaps into place and the characters reveal themselves to be deeply developed and intriguing. Snofrid’s memory loss can be frustrating as it causes her to make a series of mistakes, but ...more

This book was pretty good! I thought the plot was pretty original and interesting.

Some parts got a little boring but there was also a lot of intense and high action parts. And moments I didn't see coming.

This certainly was a unique experience. Unfortunately we didn't get too much into Inborns' nature. We only found out how they came there, a bit about why the did, and what they will do, we will have to find out in the next book. I don't like when the book ends in a cliffhanger and this one did.

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.

Hatred Day is a YA dystopian; the world has united but not through love…through hate. Snofrid Yagami, an Inbornkind, reawakens with her memories stolen, she is willing to do anything to ensure her freedom. However, that becomes difficult when the son of a high ranking human official is murdered and her home city becomes the centre of the interspecies war. With not many options Snofrid is forced to make a deal with the Inborn Commander, Hadrian – she has to be bait.

This book was an absolute joy to read and I cannot wait for the sequel to come out! TS Pettibone masterfully developed the plot, characters, background, and villains in such a way that you could not put the book down. It was also quite refreshing to read as there really is no other book like it - definitely an original story/world. Hatred Day takes you on many delightful twists and turns that keep you guessing. I highly recommend this series!

It's a sci fi fantasy, which means a writer can do anything! A story can go from earth to the far corners of space! Well in this case the space came to earth.

Overall really good story. Great concept. Creative, complex, interesting and an extremely enjoyable listen.

Finally a series that doesn't end in a huge cliffhanger. Yes, there is going to be at least one more book. Yes, there are many questions that are left unanswered, but there is no "huge" cliffhanger. Can't say any more that that and not spoil the story for those who haven't read it.

It's set in the future and I found it to be a perfect mix of Sci-fi and Fantasy because there is a war going on between humans and aliens(who look like humans but are born with different gifts/powers that resemble magic).
