David Moody loves writing about end-of-world scenarios, and in Them or Us he bring to a conclusion the Hater trilogy. The predicament: What happens when all the bad guys are gone? His latest is the third of the series that began with Hater and was followed by Dog Blood, a narrative detailing a year during which a great depravity takes over the United Kingdom. A portion of the population turn into Haters, deranged lunatics bent on destroying the Unchanged, those lucky--or unlucky enough--to have remained human.

That's the premise here as revealed by Danny McCoyne, an ordinary civil servant who is transformed into a Hater. He has the unique ability to control the evil inside him in order to walk among the Unchanged, and this makes him a special sort of soldier.

Moody's writing is taut and comes at you in stacatto phrases like short bursts of bullets. There are a lot of graphic depictions of violence and brutality and what happens when the food runs out--exactly what you want from a book about the end of the world.
