Jun 2010 – Dog Blood – David Moody
Hater - Horror for Grown Ups

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)


I don't intend to give away any spoilers to this masterpiece of under-stated & pervasive horror. It grips you hard from page one but then releases a bit & you are allowed to experience the madness developing.

From a humdrum British viewpoint, the reader will witness savage, unexplained murders. No one knows the reason but things just go from bad to worse.

Which crisp dialogue, razor-sharp observations & short, punchy chapters - this is the kind of book that keeps you up into the late hours...

Thoroughly recommended.


Jun 2010 – Dog Blood – David Moody
War against the Haters...

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)

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.
