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.
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.
Now the bad. It is painfully obvious that his firearm knowledge was gained from movies and bad novels. It might just be the kindle edition, but this story also needs to be proof read. His characters drop their weapons with ridiculous regularity, in an effort to add tension I assume. People with more then a passing knowledge of firearms will have to forgive a large amount of terminology abuse; authors love to talk about cordite without bothering to research it, clips instead magazines, bullets and hulls in place of cartridges, etc. The standard mistakes.
With that said, I would recommend this to fans of the zombie horror genre with the caveat that it is a "light" novel but very entertaining. I like the author and expect he will grow and become a favorite of mine

I enjoyed reading this book.different plot line and likeable characters
I will surly enjoy the next one.
Enjoyable, and well paced. Likable characters you'll root for, and against. More suspenseful than gory, which hooked me. Worth the read, all the way through the trilogy.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
