    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.

    Probably should have read Devil¿s Wake first, but did not. Cons

    Probably should have read Devil’s Wake first, but did not. Consequently, there were lots and lots of gaps but just go along and the story hangs together. It’s an original post-apocalyptic story – definitely a different origin for the zombies - hallelujah -- and the survivors make sense. Some of the characters seemed a little thin but maybe not after reading the first book. The devil in this one’s pretty good and his epiphany is well managed. Can’t tell if there’s enough of a set up for a third book. It ends well and the authors could stop there but there’s plenty of room left for another. Don’t read this one without the first. Received free copy for review.

    I'm hooked. Can't wait for part three. BUT! I am very angry wit

    I'm hooked. Can't wait for part three. BUT! I am very angry with Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes when it comes to Terry. If you read this book - part two - then you know why. Man (smh).

    Chilling and thrilling zombie apocalypse. Picks up where Devil's Wake left off and ramps up the excitement.
