Perhaps I'm letting one flaw in a book bother me too much. However, one thing kept me from giving this story another star- drops. In this case the continual dropping of weapons by the characters, it became an annoying plot crutch far too often to forgive.

I mean, it's years after the zombie apocalypse, anyone dropping their weapon that often would have long been dead, duct tape the freaking thing to your hand if necessary. The author seriously needs to find another method of creating tension than having his heroes dropping their guns every time a zombie comes within a mile of their location. "Look! It's a zombie! Crap, dropped my gun....again....that's the tenth time today."

Beyond that, Domain of the Dead is a fairly solid entry in the genre.

Finding high quality Zombie literature is akin to waiting for your favorite song to come on the radio; sometimes,you have to sift through some garbage before you can find the good stuff. Iain McKinnon's DOMAIN OF THE DEAD is good stuff. It's a thunderclap of a novel, taut and lean. McKinnon's spare prose is effective in carrying the reader along at breakneck speed, while still giving you characters to care about. All killer, no filler if you will.
The story starts well after the Zombie uprising, so the characters are already weary and hardened when we first meet them. This allows for a more steamlined action narrative. The action in DOTD is tight and vicious, and doesn't skimp on the zombie goodness. Mr.McKinnon has a good ear for dialogue, giving you characters who seem like they could be your neighbors.
Any drawbacks to this zomie enchilada? Well, yes, but they were minor. The descriptions of what the World's governments looked like after the uprising were unique and some more insight into them would have been welcome. That's the only gripe I really had.
Overall, this is a novel that needs to be in your zombie library. I purchased this book based on the recommendation of a friend, and I can honestly say I was pleased with my buy. I eagerly look forward to getting my hands on more of Mr. Mckinnon's work.

DOMAIN OF THE DEAD is one of those zombie novels that balances nail-biting action with finely-drawn characters. You care about these people. The author also has a deft hand in balancing common tropes of the zombie genre with new twists that keep the story fresh and exciting. Highly recommended.

The story was a great idea but the lack of gun and military knowledge is tough to get passed. Tough for me to chew over

Domain Of the Dead starts after the world has been taken over by a zombie apocalypse. A group of survivors have held up in a warehouse, that was once stocked with supplies. Now food shortages are causing them to leave the complex to re stock and face the crowds of the hungry dead that surround them, or starve. Giving up hope that help will ever arrive or will it? Great character development and I look forward to Mr. McKinnon writing a sequel.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
A group of people have been surviving in a warehouse for about three years, and they are nearly out of supplies. Two of them on a rooftop spot a helicopter touching down in their area. Despite being surrounded by hundreds of undead, the warehouse survivors decide to make a run for what might be their last chance of rescue. However, the soldiers who have landed are not there to rescue people, but to collect undead specimens, so they are not prepared to take extra people back with them. Some will have to stay behind.

Unlike a lot of other people, I read Remains of the Dead first, so I felt even worse than the characters on the helicopter, knowing what was going to happen to the soldiers and civilians who were left behind. You see, McKinnon had the brilliant idea to write about the same point in time, but each book is from a different perspective. In Remains, the reader stays with the group left behind. In Domain, the reader flies back with the helicopter group to the military ship that never docks.

The three civilians that are rescued are told that they will have to find jobs or be drafted, and they aren't happy about the limited choices. Professor Cutler and Dr. Robertson are conducting experiments to study the nature of the virus; Cutler thinks he may have found a vaccine, but he doesn't follow proper protocol in his lab, and an outbreak occurs on the ship as a result. The three civilians reprieve from the undead is very short-lived (no pun intended).

After having read the two books, I hope that McKinnon writes a third, since both Remains and Domain have some serious loose ends to tie up.

Iain McKinnon's Domain of the Dead is a fun, fast read set in a traditional Romero universe. The novel delivers on the action with characters that stand out, lots of colorful detail, and frequent humorous touches that lighten things up. Recommended.

I downloaded the sample for my kindle and it just blew me away. I was drawn in by the story and the characters. This tale starts after the survivors have been at this for around seven years. After all of this time never encountering another alive human being, the story starts with the survivors finding people fighting the undead.
The characters were really well written. The world was very detailed and interesting.

I really enjoyed this tale. I was on the edge of my seat almost the entire time. Without giving any of the story away, I can say that some of the action was intense. The situation that some of the people found themselves in was very scary to me. I know this is vague, but I really hate it when someone tells me everything in the review.

*SPOILERS*
So why did I only give this story 3 stars which means I liked it, but I didn't love it. The ending is the reason. I hated the ending. It was not bad writing. Is it too much to ask of these authors to rap up the first story before deciding to start the sequel? I love sequels! But I want the first book to have what is happening to the characters wrapped up first. Get to a somewhat safe place before you end it. The second story should be about the next big thing that they are going through!
