No Dominion

No Dominion

‘A vivid, action-packed journey through a post-apocalyptic world. Terrifying and touching in equal measure, the novel is a love story, an adventure, a road movie, a family drama and a murder mystery rolled into one’ The Times Scotland

‘No Dominion gripped me and broke my heart in equal measure’ Val McDermid

It is seven years since the Sweats wiped out most of the world’s population. But for those who survived the outbreak, life has gone on. Stevie Flint and Magnus McFall are now part of a small community on the Orkney Islands, without mobile phones or TV, without antibiotics or fuel, who are trying to rebuild the rudiments of democratic civilisation.

When three strangers arrive on the islands, however, they upset the fragile community, bringing long-buried tensions to the surface. Realising that a number of the islands’ young are missing, Stevie and Magnus set off on a journey to the mainland to get them back – a mainland swarming with outlaw gangs, and where self-appointed autocrats and religious fanatics hold sway . . .

Thrilling and breathless, No Dominion asks what happens when the scaffolding of civilisation collapses, and how far we’d go to preserve our humanity.

Reviews

A vivid, action-packed journey through a post-apocalyptic world. Terrifying and touching in equal measure, the novel is a love story, an adventure, a road movie, a family drama and a murder mystery rolled into one
The Times Scotland
A heart-breaking, thrilling, frightening page-turner of a chiller . . . Welsh taps into the fear of what a world is chaos would be like and that fear bursts out of every page
CrimeSquad
Most impressive is Welsh's evocative and sharp prose, and her keen observation of the darkest recesses of the human psyche, the stuff that bubbles to the top in times of stress and hardship . . . compelling
Big Issue
It's a thriller that thrills, but it's also a platform for a wry, spry discussion of civilisation, urbanism and connectedness, human and environmental
Sunday Herald
A gripping debate about politics and ethics . . . brilliantly uncomfortable reading
Scotland on Sunday
Thanks to its disconcerting plausibility and its solid heart, the gripping, immersive No Dominion makes for a deeply satisfying culmination to Welsh's contribution to the apoca-lit genre
Guardian
A horribly plausible scenario
Sunday Times
No Dominion gripped me and broke my heart in equal measure
Val McDermid
An excellent depiction of how far and how fast our so-called civilization could fall given the right stimulus
Crime Review
this gripping, immersive tale makes for a deeply satisfying culmination to Welsh's contribution to the apoca-lit genre
Guardian
a riveting final instalment which rarely stops for breath . . . this final book is arguably the best of the three, tying up all the thematic threads about society and morality in a violent, gripping race against time
The Herald
