Most have been really good, although a few I just couldnt finish reading.

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.
Jonathan Maberry -NY Times Bestseller
The characters were pretty likeable but occasionally there was too much talking, not enough action.

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.

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!

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

I have reviewed this book on Buyzombie.com awhile back and I think its about time I throw up an amazon review as well for this excellent zombie novel. I have read a lot of zombie novels and not very many of them even hold a candle to Domain of the Dead.

Iain McKinnon has an excellent writing style, using a masterful control of language to bring the reader into his world. The characters are real, and the author writes their dialogue in respect to each character's personality. The zombies are classic Romero style, slow and numerous. McKinnon's descriptions of the undead is something I find admirable, he uses his strong control of language to throw some really gruesome images of the undead at the reader. One of the best aspects of this novel is that the author goes into detail about how a zombie apocalypse can actually occur, and he describes in detail about how the undead came to be and what is the cause of their behaviour. This alone makes this novel stand out from everything else in this genre. The author took the time and effort to construct a viable and solid explanation to a zombie apocalypse and how a society (left in disarray) would truly react. The plot and background to this story is elaborate and well thought of.

This novel wins big points for atmosphere. There were points in this book where I felt a chill down my spine just from the claustrophobic atmosphere that this novel can project. I can't say that very many zombie novels have actually spooked me, but this one sure did.

Are there any flaws to this intelligently written, horrifying piece of zombie terror? No, not really, unless if I were to be nit-picking.

I was a little sceptical when I saw yet another book with the "of the dead" in the title.
