Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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!
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.
NOTE: Review copy received from Publisher in exchange for an honest review
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.
