this has all the component that a great zombie novel has. it has the action, the tension and the eeriness that makes you shivver with every turn of the page. He has a well rounded writing style. But what I like the most of this book is that it shows the best example of how characters should be developed. He does not go into detail about all of the characters back story like most stories do. Now most people would say this is a bad thing because of lack of knowing the characters history. He proved you dont need to write a page long description of one character just to know his character. In 'Domain of the Dead' The characters can be seen through their dialogue and their reactions to certain things. Just by the mannerism of speech, you can determine easily which character is which and thats how it should be done. He lets you see the characters from their reactions and their mannerism of speech more than the background description of their life. Ive seen, time and time again, authors writing a page long description of a character, but when I see the dialogue of these well defined characters, they seem monotone and absent of the certain characteristics of those characters. I would read about all these different characters in some story but they would all speak in the same monotone voice with the same predictable reaction. And in 'Domain of the dead' he best exemplifies how characters should be developed through their mannerism of speech and reactions to events, more than detailed description of their previous life.

this is what a zombie novel should be, its a fast paced novel with the fear provoking elements that are just scary to even think about. I mean what scarier than zombies? And whats scarier than being stuck in a confined space with zombies?

I have read quite a few zombie novels this year and this the only one thus far that will never be granted a re-read.

Things started out promising enough and guickly degraded to the point where I didn't care how the story ended.I iust wanted to be done reading it.There were far too many similarities to the film "Day of the Dead" for my liking.Anyone who's seen the film will know exactly what I mean.Having to re-read sentences due to poor grammar,structure and spelling was a huge put-off.I could go on and on but it would be better if you throw away your hard earned money and find out for yourself.Or don't and read Keene or McKinney.Seriously.Pass on this.

A few years have gone by since a cataclysmic event leaving only 15 million humans breathing on the planet. Yet, 6 billion+ are still walking around wanting to bite this smaller number. A group of survivors have lasted by barricading themselves in a "Costco-like" warehouse. Then they hear a helicopter just when supplies are winding down. This sets off a sequence of events that makes for great zombie-fare with some entertaining twists. The cobbled together governments and forces opposing the undead are intriguing but equally are those individuals who have survived through varying means. A sequel is clear in setup and I look forward to it.

HASH(0x9dee5618) out of 5 stars Almost a 4. Jan. 13 2012
By Grimwinder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Perhaps I'm letting one flaw in a book bother me too much. However, one thing kept me from giving this story another star- drops. In this case the continual dropping of weapons by the characters, it became an annoying plot crutch far too often to forgive.

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.

HASH(0x9dee5a44) out of 5 stars Domain of The Dead Feb. 22 2011
By Chip Fehd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Finding high quality Zombie literature is akin to waiting for your favorite song to come on the radio; sometimes,you have to sift through some garbage before you can find the good stuff. Iain McKinnon's DOMAIN OF THE DEAD is good stuff. It's a thunderclap of a novel, taut and lean. McKinnon's spare prose is effective in carrying the reader along at breakneck speed, while still giving you characters to care about. All killer, no filler if you will.
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.

By Jonathan Maberry -NY Times Bestseller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
DOMAIN OF THE DEAD is one of those zombie novels that balances nail-biting action with finely-drawn characters. You care about these people. The author also has a deft hand in balancing common tropes of the zombie genre with new twists that keep the story fresh and exciting. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9dee5de0) out of 5 stars Great zombie novel !!! Nov. 1 2010

Domain Of the Dead starts after the world has been taken over by a zombie apocalypse. A group of survivors have held up in a warehouse, that was once stocked with supplies. Now food shortages are causing them to leave the complex to re stock and face the crowds of the hungry dead that surround them, or starve. Giving up hope that help will ever arrive or will it? Great character development and I look forward to Mr. McKinnon writing a sequel.

HASH(0x9dee5d5c) out of 5 stars Love the Duplicate Timeline! Jan. 13 2012
By Ursula K. Raphael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A group of people have been surviving in a warehouse for about three years, and they are nearly out of supplies. Two of them on a rooftop spot a helicopter touching down in their area. Despite being surrounded by hundreds of undead, the warehouse survivors decide to make a run for what might be their last chance of rescue. However, the soldiers who have landed are not there to rescue people, but to collect undead specimens, so they are not prepared to take extra people back with them. Some will have to stay behind.

Unlike a lot of other people, I read Remains of the Dead first, so I felt even worse than the characters on the helicopter, knowing what was going to happen to the soldiers and civilians who were left behind. You see, McKinnon had the brilliant idea to write about the same point in time, but each book is from a different perspective. In Remains, the reader stays with the group left behind. In Domain, the reader flies back with the helicopter group to the military ship that never docks.

The three civilians that are rescued are told that they will have to find jobs or be drafted, and they aren't happy about the limited choices. Professor Cutler and Dr. Robertson are conducting experiments to study the nature of the virus; Cutler thinks he may have found a vaccine, but he doesn't follow proper protocol in his lab, and an outbreak occurs on the ship as a result. The three civilians reprieve from the undead is very short-lived (no pun intended).

After having read the two books, I hope that McKinnon writes a third, since both Remains and Domain have some serious loose ends to tie up.
