Recently added to my library is Hatred Day, Vol. 1. A Sci-Fi / Fantasy novel written by a new friend and her identical twin sister, this is exactly the kind of fiction work I need to balance the heavier non-fiction stuff I consume.
From the book’s back cover blurb:
In the year 2052, it’s not love but hate that unites the world.
Humanity is unified against the Inborns, an extraterrestrial species with godlike intelligence and abilities whose arrival on earth caused an environmental and biological crisis.
Enslaved and despised even by her own Inbornkind, 18-year-old Snofrid reawakens to the world after having her memories stolen and is certain of only one thing: she will do anything to ensure her freedom. But her resolution is soon tested when the son of a high-ranking human official is murdered and her home city becomes the center of the interspecies war, one that might see the Inborns purged. Desperate to find a way out of the city for herself and her family, Snofrid risks making a deal with the manipulative Inborn Commander, Hadrian, and his brutal cadre of soldiers. Her task is simple: take part in a historic hunt that will bring wealth and fame to all who survive. Unfortunately, Snofrid’s role is one in which survival is rarely seen–the bait.
Hatred Day is the first installment in T.S. Pettibone’s Hatred Day Series.
Today I start reading it. This is going to be fun!
