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

It is seven years after the Sweats wiped out most of the world’s population. Survivors settled on the Orkney Islands are trying to build a new society but their world crashes for a second time when the islands’ teenagers vanish. Stevie and Magnus are the only ones who can bring them home.

Stevie hasn’t been back to the mainland since she escaped to the islands after a desperate flight north from London. Magnus never saw himself leaving either. After all, what’s left for him there? But Shug was born on the islands and has never known anything different; has never left them. Until now.

And what starts out as a journey to bring home some young people intent on adventure soon turns into a race against time to find Shug before he comes down with the Sweats. Or worse.

A pacy, page-turning ride through a post-apocalyptic world, No Dominion sets the pulse racing and doesn’t let up until the last thrilling page.

Reviews

No Dominion gripped me and broke my heart in equal measure
Val McDermid
A gripping debate about politics and ethics . . . brilliantly uncomfortable reading
Scotland on Sunday
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
A horribly plausible scenario
Sunday Times
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
An excellent depiction of how far and how fast our so-called civilization could fall given the right stimulus
Crime Review
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
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
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
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
