HASH(0x93d9d300) out of 5 stars Great pacing, neat characters, fun read! 28 Feb. 2013
By Jon Greisz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Continuing where Devil's Wake left off, Domino Falls is a wonderful read. The pacing is great, and kept me engaged, I couldn't put it down. In the first book, people are turning into freaks (Zombies) after being bitten. A group has started the trek to Devil's Wake an island in Southern California. They make it as far as Northern California in the first book.

This book picks up where the first ended. The group has heard radio broadcasts from a town Domino Fall's by a charismatic leader of a cult. They make there way to the town and work on ingratiating themselves with their hosts. Where they meet some nice, and not so nice people. As can be expected in a town led by a cult, things are not all what they seem.

The relationships between the characters continue to evolve, as situation after situation is thrown at them. I loved that the characters had issues and had to overcome them, they weren't all just mowing down freaks left and right. For example, Piranha wears contacts and the lack of saline was causing him to go blind. Being blind when freaks are after you, is not a good thing. The panic as he tries to ingratiate himself with the town folks, while not revealing his vision problems was wonderfully done.

Overall, I loved the books. My only complaint as with the first one, was that they were too short. I wanted more. No make that, I want more!

HASH(0x949d1b64) out of 5 stars Compelling and Exciting! 20 Feb. 2013
By Marianne Houghtaling - Published on
Format: Paperback
An infection has caused an epidemic sweeping the world turning humans into a sort of zombie/alien life form mix called freaks. One bite, scratch or blood exchange can cause the change. Darius Phillips, Dean Kitsap, Terry Whittaker, Kendra Brookings, Sonia Petansu, “Piranha,” Charlie Cawthorne, Corporal Ursalina Cortez and Hipshot, a black terrier mix are searching for a sanctuary of safety and normalcy. This story is about their hope that Domino Falls will be that sanctuary, their courage which will be sorely tested and their faith and trust in each other making their friendships stronger than ever.
This book is an exciting, terrifying and at times heartbreaking story. I found it to be compelling and did not want to put this book down. I was on the edge of my seat many times sometimes heaving sighs of relief and other times wiping the tears from my eyes. I found myself deeply involved with each of these characters and wanting and hoping that they survive. This story is a captivating one and I cannot wait to read the next installment. This a must have for those who enjoy stories about the end of the world, zombies, aliens and all who enjoy an excellent chiller and thriller.

HASH(0x93fff7d4) out of 5 stars Perfect Pacing and Constant Suspense 12 Aug. 2013
By Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf - Published on
Domino Falls is an excellent follow up to Devil's Wake. Once again, I had some difficulty getting used to the writing style of this pair...but it didn't take long before I was distracted from those difficulties and sucked right into the storyline; caught up once again in the tale of this inspiring group of young people. Once again, the character development is amazing and they manage to almost carry the book on their own. Luckily they don't have to. The perfect pacing and constant suspense of the tale only increases in this sequel and in addition to confirming that...Yes,I apparently do like some Zombie books...Domino Falls also added in a great science fiction twist that really added to the interest and suspense of this series. (Though if you've read my review for the first book in this series you know how mad I was that they gave the twist away in the synopsis for the first book.) There is no doubt that I'll be eagerly anticipating the next book in this series!

HASH(0x94001150) out of 5 stars Threadville 14 April 2013
By OOSA Online Book Club - Published on
Format: Paperback
Domino Falls, California, just so happens to be one of few safe havens that are left in the world since that horrific day that no one has been able to explain. The day when everyone started acting crazy and biting one another. One bite made you sleepy and when you awoke, you were turned into a freak. Zombielike and red thread vines hanging from your face. These freaks had a smell that reminded one of rotten oranges.

Some of the few remaining survivors of one small town were able to make it out alive and unbitten. While trying to figure out where to go they heard over the radio a broadcast from Joseph Wales, an older actor and leader of a group in Threadville, otherwise known as Domino Falls. The broadcasts were to let survivors know of a sanctuary they could come and be safe from the freaks and the pirates. When the group arrives they see that only those that are able to offer something to this compound were to be admitted. The lame and old were to be left to their own devices outside of the compound to deal with the freaks. On the outside Domino Falls looks like it is a place that is safe but could it really be a trap for something even more sinister than they could have ever imagined?

I admit that when I began reading this novel, I did not realize that it was the sequel to DEVIL'S WAKE. Also, it was the first time I had ever read a book by either Steven Barnes or Tananarive Due. But I have to say, I was so drawn into the story and the main characters I was quickly turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. DOMINO FALLS is a cross between that movie I AM LEGEND and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of this genre. I really enjoyed both Steven and Tananarive's writing. I plan to read their other novels in the near future. I am also looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.

This was an incredible story. I must have read it in one sitting. If you are interested a story told by master storytellers. This book is for you. I look forward to the next chapter of this saga.
