The Earth has been torn apart. Everyone is either human or Hater, victim or killer. Major cities have become vast refugee camps where human survivors cower together in fear. Amidst this indiscriminate fighting and killing, Danny McCoyne is on a mission to find his daughter, Ellis. Free of inhibitions, unrestricted by memories of the previous world, and driven by instinct, children are pure Haters and might well be the deciding factor in the future of the Hater race. But as McCoyne makes his way into the heart of human territory, an incident on the battlefield sets in place an unexpected chain of events, forcing him to question everything he believes he knows about the new order that has arisen and about the dynamic of the Hate itself.

Less boring, but many plot and story issues
If you read my review of 'Haters' you're probably wondering why did I buy the 2nd book in the trilogy. Well I bought both books at the same time, strictly based on the OVERLY!!! high reviews of it. Well since I bought it I thought I might as well listen to it. Although this book had a lot more action than the first, and it was nice not to have to listen to the mundane day to day goings on of a BORING, WHINING, British family, I thought there were way to many holes in the plot, and the story went from boring to unbelievable.
Now I know this story does not take place in the United States so I don't expect an armed populace like lets say Arizona, HOWEVER!!! come on, you would have figured they would have armed the remaining "unchanged", and conscripted them into the military. The tactics that were used against the 'Haters' were pathetic. For the most part the vast majority of 'Haters' could not control they're rage, so why not go out into the countryside with heavy armor like tanks and apcs. 'Haters' were basically fighting with their hands and/or crude melee weapons which are no match for even light armor vehicles mounted with a 50 cal. A brigade of Bradleys(US apcs) could wipe out tens of thousands of Haters. Not to mention why not the use of chemical or biological weapons. Why nuke a city when you can just as easily gas it and still have the infrastructure intact afterwards. Not to mention conventional high ordinance weaponary like fuel air bombs like the MOAB.
Maybe I'm getting to technical and over analyzing the story, but come on, it's not like a conventional zombie book where the numbers of zombies typically increase as the 'infection' is spread. Here there is no infection so the haters numbers should be drastically reduced after each conflict or engagement.
Oh well, I'm giving this book 2 stars one more than Haters only because it was an improvement so I have to acknowledge that. Lets hope book 3 gets better.
