Deaths Dominion Reviews

  • Colleen

    Now, I m a relatively easy person to please Give me a creepy cover, a horror book filled with gore, and an apocalyptic terrible future, you have me hooked anything else you can throw my way is just a gravy in the ladle I really liked the concept of this book set in the future, where people who die are placed in Regenerators, and serve humankind but are unable to retaliate or defend themselves, and suddenly these peaceful zombies Frankenstein monsters find themselves chosen for mass extermina Now [...]

    2.5 5 The writing is fine, and quite good in places, but the plot leaves too many things unanswered What is it about being raised from the dead that prevents the resurrected from harming humanity This works in Asimov s stories because there s an explanation for it Here It s just because Is there a minimum age someone can be regenerated at Why does everyone seem to go back to being 30 Also, Dominion himself just wasn t that interesting of a character When you discover his purpose near th 2.5 5 Th [...]

    I think this or Stir of Echos might be the first Simon Clark book that I have read.The book is quite entertaining and it goes in ways you would not expect it to What I thought would happen when I first started reading the book was totally different than the ending, yet I liked the ending a lot better than any I had thought would happen.SpoilerThe book has a happy ending and this ending is that everyone is violently murdered.In the future humanity has found out how to revive human beings after t [...]

  • Kasia

    A fascinating twist on the Frankenstein s monster story, in this book the dead who are brought back called TRANSIENTS, not monsters do the people who write the descriptions of the books even READ the bloody books are stronger, healthier and attractive than when they died the cover of the book notwithstanding I don t think that whoever did the cover art actually knew ANYTHING about the book except it was going to have a Frankenstein s monster type theme Although they have been A fascinating twis [...]

    I ve looked at some other reviews for Death s Dominion, before I review this book I want you all to know most people who have read this book have enjoyed it Most ratings on Death s Dominion are three stars and over God scarers are the dead reborn to serve humanity They live by a code Do not harm humanity Allow no harm to befall humanity due to your action or inaction However times are changing, humans find the God Scarers repugnant and have set out to destroy them As the God Scarers run I ve loo [...]

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Despite the good start and an intriguing premise, this book ultimately only succeeded in pissing me off in the end The author was really onto something, but along the way the story seemed to get scattered and misguided Kinda pointless really The answers I got to all my questions in the end were underwhelming Maybe the turning point occurred early on when Dominion met up with the rest of the cast of characters That s [...]

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here after quite a few disappointments in the leisure horror book of the month club books, this one was a pleasant surprise it fell a little bit prey to the stephen king syndrome of explaining things a little too much at the end and chalking it all up to science where a ambiguous, supernatural climax would have been interesting, or at least, preferred though i feel the very end made up for it in a soylent green is made [...]

  • William M.

    Simon Clark always delivers an enjoyable, dark read, and DEATH S DOMINION is no exception What starts out as an fantastic spin on the Frankenstein franchise turns into a slightly predictable, yet ultimately poignant tale A few of the resolved mysteries near the end felt a bit far fetched in regards to the missing God Scarers, but I went with the ride and had a good time The very ending was powerful and I find myself still thinking about it This is a very solid read from one of today s premie Sim [...]

  • Heather

    Interesting concept Not my favorite story This is the story of a time when the dead are reanimated and brought back as servants and workers But then the same people that brought them back from the dead eventually persecute them in something akin to the Salem Witch Trials As I said, it was an interesting read, but a little too far fetched and hokey for my taste.

  • Nathan Flamank

    Rated 3.5 out of 5.Clark is certainly the UK s finest horror writer at the moment and this modern take on the Frankenstein story is certainly full of visceral scenes and the tension is palpable in places BUT, for some reason it felt as if the author ended is too quickly with everything tied up in a neat bow Not Clark s best work but still an engrossing and enjoyable read.

  • Christine Gaskins

    People piece the dead together to make and train as servents Soon they fear an uprising for the undead who still think and have feelings I love this book It is sad to stand with the un dead but a great read.
