About the Author

James Herbert was not just Britain's number one bestselling writer of chiller fiction, a position he held ever since publication of his first novel, but was also one of our greatest popular novelists. Widely imitated and hugely influential, his twenty-three novels have sold more than fifty-four million copies worldwide, and have been translated into over thirty languages, including Russian and Chinese. In 2010, he was made the Grand Master of Horror by the World Horror Convention and was also awarded an OBE by the Queen for services to literature. His final novel was Ash. James Herbert died in March 2013. --This text refers to the Digital edition.

Don't pay attention to the clown who wrote the nasty one-star review. This book was so much fun I didn't want it to end. Survival horror that's truly scary, sure it has some flaws (but what King/Koontz horror novel doesn't!)It's a little dated at times and vague at filling in the blanks as to why it happened,(I'm glad it didn't it places the reader firmly in the characters shoes) this is not a book solely about nuclear war it's a book about fear of the unknown: Trying to survive nature out of control, terrifying gory rat attacks, dissention among each other, along with radioactive fallout, and the contaminated survivors, diseases, injury without a doctor ect. Intense unrelenting action, graphic violence, split decisions with catastrophic consequences, sense of doom and dismay that permeates every page makes for a thrilling read...(The Rats are the real stars of this story) this is not a boring book and it would make a great movie.

A day like any other in Cold War London, until the unspeakable happens. Sirens, Panic, Fire. The worst appears to be over. But whereas other authors would consider this the climax of a novel James Herbert would consider this only a backdrop for a novel which is arguably his best work in a resume of already great writing. Of course, this book is a Cold War relic, but by no means anachronistic. The threat of nuclear attack is still omniprsent in todays post Cold War society. But to say that this book is about nuclear war is the same as saying that Stephen Kings The Stand is about a plague. It's true but the real suspense occurs with this as a backdrop. This is of course, the concluding portion of the Rats Trilogy (Rats=1, Lair=2, Domain=3) and by far the best of the three. The action centers around three people, Steve Culver (the prototypical Herbert hero), Alex Dealy (the prototypical Herbert bureacratic idiot), and Kate Garner (the prototypical Herbert female lead). Yes his characters are formulaic but you don't go to a Steven Segal movie for the acting, you go to see bad guys getting beat up and stuff getting blown up. Here's how the plot line goes. The heroes first get knocked into hell with the nuclear blasts. They manage to escape the first rat onslaught because Culver gets lucky enough to find the bureacrat Dealy (actually Dealy gets lucky enough that Culver saved his arse from the nuclear blast, which made Dealy temporarily blind, instead of leaving him to die which Dealy surely would have done to Culver had positions been reversed), along with Kate, but it is Dealy who knows where the "secret entrance" to the government fallout shelter is. There is a calm where the heroes are in the government installation and being treated for the disease the rats carry.Read more ›

Even though this book is from the 80's, and some of the cultural references are dated, it is an excellent, suspenseful book, with moments of dread scattered throughout the book. I really enjoyed it so much, that I am going to try to pick up copies of his other books.

The ultimate climax to this trilogy. Well paced and fantastically written. This needs to be made into a movie now. Easily reads as a stand alone although finishes off the series well (although if it was followed up with another story id buy and read immediately).

Monster rat movies were some of my favs as a kid. A few that stand out, Deadly Eyes (duh), Ben, Willard, Graveyard Shift. There was one Italian rat movie that was kind of crappy but had an awesome ending, The Night of the Rats. Set in a post-apocalyptic future (Nukes. In the 80's it always was.) a small band of survivors try to fend off these killer rats while hiding in a bunker. While reading Domain it felt like I was reading a vastly superior novelization of that movie and in doing so inadvertently tying together Deadly Eyes and tNotR for me.

Anyways, it was a great read. Very bloody, at times extremely grim but all the while still keeping that guilty pleasure of reading this genre.

All I have to say is if you are a fan of The Rats and Lair you have to wrap the story up with Domain.

If you haven't read this gruesomely fun set of books, do yourself a favor and check them out.

The 3rd in the series (a fourth 'graphic' or picture novel was created in the series and is very rare and impossible to find). The World comes to an apocalyptical almost end. London is blown up with a Nuclear Attack and the Rats return to create havoc and hell for the survivors! won't catch me on the london underground. ha ha

Format: Paperback
"Domain" by James Herbert is a non-stop action packed, post-nuclear bomb, end-of-the-world story that brings back the over sized, overly vicious mutant rats from Herbert's "The Rats" and "Lair". Fortunately, granite jawed Steve Culver is on hand to keep the rats down and lead a dwindling group of survivors to safer ground. Culver comes from the same mold as Nick Carter, Remo Williams, and Dirk Pitt. A less proficient, flawed hero wouldn't have survived more than two minutes, so it's a good thing Culver has his stuff together. Things start out grim and never let up, but what would you expect from the end of the world? We also get politically motivated internal conflict within the group as well as a violent run-in with another group of survivors. "Domain" is rock solid gloomy entertainment from beginning to end. Not for the timid. 3 1/2 stars.
