Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Gory and relentlessly tense, this sequel to Moody's neo-zombie thriller, Hater, maintains the innovative tautness that landed that self-published e-book on Guillermo del Toro's film production slate, but suffers from middle-child status. The second book in a proposed trilogy, it follows its predecessor's narrator, Danny McCoyne, now a "Hater," one of the growing portion of humanity consumed with destroying the "Unchanged." Danny's quest to find his Hater daughter drives much of the book's action, but is problematic as a focal point. While it's fascinating to observe the mind of a Hater like Danny, it's also hard to invest in the emotions of a monster, especially one whose descriptions of killing are so thoroughly, gruesomely chronicled. The Unchanged interludes, featuring characters like the pathetic Mark Tillotsen-who, along with his family and hoards of others, huddles in a city under siege-offer little relief or distraction. With both build-up and conclusion of this tale confined to separate volumes, Dog Blood's tension feels turgid, despite all the action, at times tipping the tone from thrilling to unpleasant and crying out for the release of what one hopes is a soon-to-follow sequel.

"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 the Paperback edition.

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. Find out more about Moody at and

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on June 12, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The world as we know it no longer exists. The human race is divided into two distinct camps: the Unchanged and the Haters. The latter are people ripped of all social restraints and must kill the Unchanged. Their goal is an Unchanged genocide. The Haters have caused governments to collapse destroying the infrastructure of every nation. They still can think but obsess over killing the Unchanged even family members.

Danny McCoyne is a Hater who hunts the Unchanged without mercy. His goal is to find his daughter Ellis who was taken away from him when he was knocked unconscious after killing his father-in-law. Before he passed out, he saw her and knows she is just like him. The government has relocated the Unchanged inside cities filled with traps like a medieval fortress. Danny falls in with a group that seeks the same destruction as he does. He learns to control his homicidal impulses so he can enter the city because his Ellis is there.

This intelligent apocalyptic chiller is a fantastic horror tale that continues the escapades of the Haters, who are a zombie like humanoids. The species cannot control their basic impulse to slaughter the Unchanged though Danny tries as his love for Ellis supersedes his instinct to kill. Though lacking the cautionary theme of its predecessor, but with the same moody dark atmosphere and a strange flicker of paternal love and hope, Dog Blood is a terrific zombie thriller that affirms David Moody as a strong talent.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This novel is the sequel to Hater and takes place shortly after the end of the earlier book. Most of the backstory is absent so reading the first book is essential to understanding what is going on. Overall, the story here is fast paced and thrilling but also falls prey to middle-book syndrome. Lots of travelling, setbacks and an underwhelming ending all point to a resolution taking place in a later novel. Further, the novelty of the hater perspective lacks the punch it had in the first book. In sum, those who enjoyed the first novel should also like this one.

Format: Hardcover
Sequels are tough, especially for a novel like HATER, which contained one of the most powerful twists I've seen in this genre, but Moody aces it with DOG BLOOD. It's got all the elements of an exciting apocalyptic horror novel while adding Moody's trademark ability to make you care about the very real, flesh-and-blood people in his story. While the experience of reading the book would probably be richer if you read HATER first, it's not necessary, and I would suggest this as an opportunity (to read another great book), not a detractor. Can't wait for the next one!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy on September 7, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Dog Blood, the highly anticipated sequel to Hater (first self-published in 2006), continues the fast-paced, thrilling story of the mysterious and violent condition affecting a third of the world's population. In Hater, Danny McCoyne was bewildered and overwhelmed by the horrific changes "the Hate" brought to his city and his home. In Dog Blood, reality sets in deeper as Danny must battle not only those around him but his own impulses as well.

Danny McCoyne is a Hater. He has come to understand that anyone who is not like him, who is Unchanged, must be killed. The urge to kill is a physical need, and it can't be controlled. But as time passes, Danny and others like him realize that if they are to be successful, they have to reign in their bloodlust, at least to some extent. The Unchanged have superior weapons and greater numbers and have sealed themselves inside well-defended cities. The Haters are left to roam the countryside in search of whatever food they can find. The situation is unsustainable, and for Danny, it's even worse, because he knows that his daughter, who is like him, is out there somewhere. And he's determined to find her.

Meanwhile, Mark Tillotsen, one of the Unchanged, lives in a city high-rise apartment, crammed in with his pregnant girlfriend, her parents, and another family. He's a member of a search crew that forages outside the city, looking for food, supplies, and survivors in exchange for slightly higher rations. After a particularly close call with a band of Haters, Mark realizes something has to change. But what?

The story of the hero's journey is nothing new.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By M. Wanchoo VINE VOICE on September 3, 2010
Format: Hardcover
David Moody returns to the world of Danny McCoyne after last years' "Hater", the sequel picks up where Hater left off. Wherein the Hater plague has struck and converted mass sections of humanity into Haters who roam about looking for the Unchanged (normal) population to kill. Readers are given an introduction as to how the world and specifically the United States has been affected. A couple of third person point of views are given from the normal side before we are rather violently exposed to Danny McCoyne and his fellow Haters.

The Zombie apocalypse per say in this world is a bit different then other portrayals, as the Zombies/Haters are shown to be self aware and intelligent. They seek out the normal humans and kill. This is all they can do. Danny has been traveling and killing humans on the other side but he's traveling with a purpose, he's on the look out for his daughter Ellis whom he thinks is also a hater like himself. Thus begins Danny's sojourn where he travels along with a fellow hater named Adam who is a bit more run down than Danny.

As they both escape a targeted explosion, Danny begins to reminisce about his former life and begins to wonder whether he will be able to reunite with his daughter. Along the way he comes upon a fellow hater like himself who tells him about a plan, which potentially could solve all the hater problems. Not wanting to commit himself Danny manages to extradite himself but leaves with a promise of sorts that depending on the result of his quest, he might or might not come back. It's from here the story then wildly escalates into blood and gore as Danny tries to locate and reacquire his daughter. The Interludes are interspersed in between Danny's Chapters until they come to a logical conclusion.
