Dominion is jam-packed with action from the first page, and I could not turn the pages fast enough. J.T. Bishop took me on a roller coaster ride of murder, suspense, and danger. With all the twists and turns, I never knew what would happen next. The action never stopped, and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a page-turner and fast-paced. The characters were excellent and believable. Rhonda was an excellent character. She came across as a very paranoid and scared person, but she was very strong. The story was excellently written and kept my attention until the end. The ending was a big surprise, and I did not see it coming. It was completely unexpected and yanked my feet completely out from under me.
