Review of Doc Savage: Deaths Dark Domain

I have always been a HUGE Doc Savage fan. When I recently discovered that Will Murray was writing new editions to the literally legendary series of books I began buying them. The new entry is called `Death's Dark Domain'.
DDD takes place in Eastern Europe in a disputed borderland between two countries. The story is filled with enough menace and supposed monsters to fill an old Universal movie. There's lots of mystery here, as well as a few surprising moments. I don't like giving too much away in reviews, but I will say we get to see Doc's prodigious strength on display a few times as well as his amazing agility and his incredible intelligence. Will has Doc and his friend's personalities down pat, and from the get go you feel like you're reading a real Doc Savage story, and not fan fic or something akin to it.
That is not to say the story does not have its problems. To me, Doc Savage should never be surprised by anything, no matter what it is, yet he was surprised by at least three occurrences in this book. That detracted a little from the story for me. Plus there was an anti-gun message within that just struck me as very wrong. I don't see Doc Savage as ever believing that someone would get his own gun away from him and use it against him. Sorry that's too much of a stretch.
Beyond those issues though, this was a HIGHLY entertaining book. I read though it very quickly, basically finishing it in about a day. I sat for long hours reading it and enjoying just about every part of it. It was a good, classic style Doc story, as long as you are okay overlooking a few faults.
There was one other issue I had with it and that was the lack of action.

Format: Paperback
Our hero has had some truly wild rides here in the All-New WILD Adventures of Doc Savage, but none wilder than DEATH'S DARK DOMAIN.

In the Lester Dent novel FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, you may recall, evil John Sunlight broke into Doc's Arctic hideaway and stole a bunch of WWDs (Weapons of Weird Destruction) that Doc had appropriated from assorted mad scientists. In true bad-guy fashion, Sunlight sold one to each side in a small European war. Now, in this previously untold tale by Will Murray, while Sunlight is off somewhere enjoying the proceeds, Doc and his crew are stuck trying to clean up the mess.

And it's one heck of a mess. Some of the many menaces they're up against are monsters who are invisible except for their eyeballs, a sudden blackness that makes everything dark as the inside of a lump of coal, and a squadron of bats the size of airplanes. Add to that the usual quota of quirky villains and dangerous dames (some even quirkier and more dangerous than usual) and you've got one of the toughest cases the Savage gang has ever tried to crack.

As always, Will Murray's homage to Lester Dent's style is dead-bang perfect. And if I'm counting my fingers right, this is only the fourth in a projected seven-book run, so we have at least three more WILD adventures to look forward to.

DEATH'S DARK DOMAIN is a sequel of sorts to Lester Dent's FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, the novel where John Sunlight finds Doc's place in the Arctic and manages to steal a number of his weapons stored in a vault.

It's set in the Balkans and involves two countries fighting over a strip of land betwen them. One has bought one of Doc's weapons, the darkness machine which blinds everything in it's range. We have hints of vampires, huge bats, and disappearing people.

Will Murray has constructed another fine pulp novel.

Wow. I mean Really. Will Murray perfectly captures Dent's Action paced writing style while STILL making it his own. So DAMMED good. I own all of his entries from The 90's to the new " wild" adventures. Cant find a better " spooky " Doc for halloween week better than this.Fianna Drost was an oddball but likable character.Mr Murray really CARES for Doc & Company and it shows. Here's hoping Will writes Doc for a LONG Time!!

I'm quite pleased that Will Murray is writing the new adventures of Doc Savage, and he has captured Dent's style and attitude very well. I have enjoyed all the books, with the exception of this one. It did not gell for me, and the plot seemed to bounce all over the place. Having said that, if you are a fan of Doc Savage, please read the book to support future stories.

The book was typical Doc Savage with rapid pace and enough mystery to hold your attention. It IS dated considering the time it represents but that is part of the fun. The science is barely believable making it a science fiction story of the old school.

I've been a huge doc savage fan since the early 70"s even belonging to the doc savage fan club. I wish I had all the books and stuff from then, but bless Will Murray and his friends for continuing the tradition of doc savage.

Will Murray continues to be faithful to the Lester Dent style of writing Doc Savage. His latest and best so far rivals Dent's "The Monsters" in fast paced, edge of your seat adventure. Murray does extremely well in the characterization of Doc and his Amazing Crew focusing on Long Tom, Doc, Monk and Ham for the most part in this Super Saga. Pat plays a pivotal role as well. The conflict between the supernatural and science is powerfully well thought out. I can hardly wait for the next installment! I hope all the Doc Savage adventures will be available in Kindle Digital Editions soon. I would like to re-read all of them. Audio versions of many would be nice too.
