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.
“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. This confident and captivating novel should leave readers eagerly anticipating future volumes.”

Readers’ Favorite, (five-star review)
“T.S. Pettibone masterfully developed the plot, characters, background, and villains in such a way that (I) could not put (Hatred Day) down. It was also quite refreshing to read as there really is no other book like it – definitely an original story/world. I highly recommend this series!”
“I loved this book so much that I ordered a physical copy while I was still halfway through the (Advanced Readers’ Copy) I received. Nearly every blogger runs into what I’m dealing with in regards to this book: I loved it so much, that I honestly can’t organize my thoughts. From the characters to the plot, this book managed to woo me in a way that I hadn’t been wooed in a while.”
“What an amazing well-written book. I am normally not a fan of fictions but this one blew me away. It is action-packed and suspenseful, almost dark at points, but honest. Also the writers make incredible use of some interesting writing tools. I quite enjoyed it, and will definitely be rereading it soon as I await the second book in the series Verdict Day with anticipation.”
“I saw Hatred Day as a thumbnail on Amazon and thought, ‘Oh, another romance nov…wait, what? Gas mask? Huh.’ Catchy cover – nice. So I read the synopsis. Then the first chapter. And wow, did it surprise me. This had an interesting, gritty setting with strong characters, creative world-building, and a realistic tone that really was much better than the popular YA books of today.”
