By Mark King
Reviewed by Author Roy Murry
Mr. King’s SiFi kept me on the edge of my seat as its first in the series FRENZY did. However, Daniel Jones – Doom can be read on its own. I had the enjoyment of reading both.
What one believes in and the real facts of life are in conflict in both books. Belief in “A God” and “A Here After,” are the crux of most religions. In Doom, this philosophy is what keeps the common man in line and leads them to their Doom.
Daniel and his friends know the real facts of their lives’ existence, which is so hideous the common man in his brainwashed state denies. Daniel’s group strives to help free them from their fate called Achievement Day which is a misnomer.
In trying to save his father’s life from an Achievement Day function, Daniel and friends go through adventures that must be overcome to meet their goal - to live their lives free of an imposed deity whose origin is alien to earth. These detours will lead you to the end which may be a beginning or not.
Fast paced and thrilling, Mr. King does his job by keeping you involved. He leaves you wanting to know: What will happen next? I do. How about you?
All this changed for Daniel when he found out what really happens to people once they enter the Achievement Centres and forced him to flee. Doom continues the story from book 1. Daniel now travels with Mary and Gwendolyn, two other outcasts who know the truth about the Over-seers, but they are constantly afraid of capture by the ruthless Hunters.
They find Jack, a boy left alone after his parents were taken. He has access to technology never seen by Daniel and together they form a plan to return to Daniel's village and tell his father the truth before he reaches his Achievement Day and it is too late.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
Daniel has begun to have terrible dreams after witnessing the horrific methods of the Over-Seers. He is also aware that it is coming up to his father’s fortieth season, where he knows his dad will be preparing for a life of rest and rewards from the Over-Seers in the Achievement Centre. After a life of being brainwashed by these beings his father, and the rest of humanity, simply have no idea of the horrors that await them. It’s simply too much for Daniel to bear; he must return to his home village to warn his family. Only that would be difficult with the Over-Seers sending Hunters and Triclops to hunt him and his companions down! This boy loves a challenge, and with his friends support they are a team to be reckoned with.
Meanwhile, we learn that the consequences of Frenzy (Daniel Jones book 1) has left John, Daniel’s father, in a tired, weary and fragile state. Not only has he lost his son to the desolate lands, without knowing why, he now also works alone, chopping down trees, with no horse to pull his cart. He is emotionally and physically drained with only the hope of the Achievement Centre to relieve him of his exhausting life.
“… but with losing his axe, his horse, and his son in the space of two days John was not going to take any risks with his chance of entering the Achievement Centre, and in receiving a lifetime of the rewards that were promised.”
I am absolutely hooked with this series, longing to read the next instalment. It is a perfect read for young adults and over, with the right dosage of action, horror and gore mixed with great dialogue, brilliant characters and an addictive storyline.
Will Daniel reach his village to warn his father? Or will be captured by the Hunters, along with his companions? Is it too late for his father to be saved? What will become of Daniel, and all of those he cares about? This truly is a MUST-READ that I would recommend to place at the top of your reading list!

Doom is a worthy sequel, no a continuation, of Frenzy the story of a boy who had learned a terrible secret in a dystopian future.Read more
