Blurb (from Goodreads):
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 Yagami 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.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an okay YA dystopian, but I lost interest as it went along.
This was a story about a world where aliens called ‘inborns’ had taken over the planet Earth after having to leave their own planet. There was some slave trading going on, and a bit of a rebellion of the humans verses the inborns. The day the aliens had landed was dubbed ‘hatred day’ and things generally got a bit out of hand on that day each year. The pace in this was quite slow though, and I lost interest as the story went along. I did feel quite sorry for Sno when she found out who she really was, and how at risk she was in the current climate, but I just couldn’t get really invested in the book.
