George A Romero is one of my absolute all time favourite authors. Iain McKinnon's imaginably rich tale, not only feels frighteningly realistic, it also puts him on a par with recognised zombie horror authors everywhere.

McKinnon's main characters of Sarah and Nathan are well-executed, benevolent, and pragmatic in their actions and motivations.So much so, that I often found myself rooting for them when things go bad. And boy, do things go bad. But it goes without saying this only adds to the tension of quite a superb novel.

McKinnon has managed to portray a very vivid and very unsettling picture of a world being cruelly entrenched by a zombie apocalypse.

His realistic approach to the zombie genre had me reading this book until the early hours of the morning.

I have never read anything quite like it; atmospheric, turbulent and extremely good. I can only wait in vain to see if another book is published.

A definite must read.

I really need to do something about my addictive personality. It has been almost nine months since I swore of reading another zombie novel. Yet here I find myself with Domain of the Dead read and ready for review.

So what made me go back to one of the most over worked genres? Truthfully it was all down to to the author Iain Mckinnon, who I met whilst being an extra for the Dead Beat trailer. Iain was the writer director, producer for the shoot, he came across as instantly likeable guy with a huge passion for the genre. He managed to push that button in my head, that gives me excuses to do things I really shouldn't. Surely someone with this amount of passion should be able to knock off a decent zombie story?

In DOTD Sarah and Nathan have been living in a fortified warehouse with a few other survivors, whilst the rest of the world has succumbed to the zombie horde. Faced with the the choice of starvation or death by zombie Sarah decides to throw herself of the roof of the warehouse. As she prepares to jump she notices a a helicopter in the distance. The survivors battle their way to the helicopter, and discover that it has come from a research ship, The Ishtar, which has been tasked with finding a solution to the zombie problem. They are taken aboard the ship, only to find that safety is a fragile thing and soon Nathan and Sarah are fighting for their very survival.

So the question is has Iain written a decent zombie novel? In all honesty, yes he did. This is a very tight novel, there are no pages wasted on back story, or the protagonists history. We are thrown head first in to world over run with zombies, that's not to say that he hasn't created fully rounded characters, or a well developed world.

This book was recommended by someone at a halloween party and although not the type of book I would normally read, I thought I would give it a go. I read this in just about one sitting (had to go play football in between) which gives a flavour of how accessible and enjoyable it was. It is a jolly good romp which doesn't let up, easy to relate to the characters and generally a lot of fun. My wife is more into the zombie/vampire/horror genre than I am and she's keen to read it next.

I might not read too many more zombie novels but if the author follows up with a sequel I'll be interested to know what happened with some of the loose ends.

Format: Paperback
I brought Domain of the Dead in a batch of UK-based Zombie/Post-apocalyptic novel purchases, mainly after it sat in my 'maybe' list for so long that curiosity won me over in the end. I had read the other reviews and was always tempted, but feared that I had overdosed on US-centric ZPAW action with J.L.Bourne's DBDA series and Z. A. Recht's Morningstar Saga - assuming that it would deliver the same stuff.

To be honest, it does (to a degree) give you what you expect - but after reading so many different incarnations, and 're-inventions' of the genre - I actually found a return to the good 'ole zombie story cathartic, or maybe it just reminded me of what I liked about it all in the first place?

Domain of the Dead delivers what other people have said previously in reviews, and I really enjoyed reading the story (1st sub-24 hour book in a while). I really do hope that the author finds enough inspiration to write a sequel, and that, despite the temptation, it remains true to the genre that is constantly being blurred. A refreshing retrospective that I would highly recommend to all fans, or newcomers alike.

By Clack on 31 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
This is such a fast in your face read, I read it cover to cover in one sitting, its fast paced but not so much that you cannot keep up, the characters are believable and the prose is written in such a way that you can imagine life for each of them, something sadly lacking from other zombie type novels, the writer has not just concentrated on the horror but also on the person and their own private nightmares....

I too would have liked a longer read, probably because I'm a fast reader, but it had the hairs on the back of my neck going, made me want to rip through the pages and I cannot wait for the next instalment, reliably informed should be next year....

Lets hope there are more UK writers out there, this book is such a refreshing change from the splatterfest, guts cringeing (whilst good), bit of plot always helps....type of the genre.....

The sleeve is wonderful, art effects brilliant, you are really getting a quality novel here, crafted to perfection....

Fantastic book, 10/10,
