    One thought on “Remains of the Dead”

    1. After enjoying the hell out of the first book in this series, Domain of the Dead - so much so that it made my top 10 horror reads of 2013 - I'd long been looking forward to reading this sequel. Weirdly, I sometimes like to delay gratification, so Remains of the Dead kept slipping down to #10-15 on my TBR pile as I waited for what felt like the right time.Well that time was this week, and though Remains of the Dead is again technically very well-written, it is unfortunately not as arresting or as [...]

    2. This is the companion book to Domain of the Dead, which I highly enjoyed. There is a small group of characters left behind in Domain, and Remains of the Dead picks up with their tale. (which makes not a sequel, but a concurrent story line.)I'm a little bit upset at the ending, although I won't give anything away. Let's just say, it stopped more abruptly than I was expecting! On the plus side: Cleaner edit than Domain of the Dead. Still a few typos escaped through, like oh so many zombies pushing [...]

    3. The companion volume to Domain Of The Dead runs alongside the first book but dealing with the survivors that got left behind!Cahz and his team are on a helicopter run into the city gathering specimens for experimentation when they are approached by a group of survivors. Knowing that they cannot all fit on the copter, Cahz and one of his team members elect to stay behind until the copter can return. All they have to do is surviveQuickly realising that their chances are low in the city, the small [...]

    4. Just as McKinnon's other book "Domain of the Dead"; it was ok, that's all. The ending was quite strange and abrupt. It ends as if there is a sequel, but I'm not aware of one. These books certainly don't add anything to the genre.

    5. Review of Iain McKinnon’s “Remains of the Dead”Remains of the Dead is the sequel to Iain McKinnon’s “Domain of the Dead” but in a way, it is its own stand alone story. I guess the term sequel doesn’t accurately describe this tale, since this story runs parallel to the first book. Both books start out the same way, with a group of survivors trapped years after the start of the zombie apocalypse inside a large warehouse that is filled with all the supplies they would need to survive. [...]

    6. Remains of the Dead is the follow up tale to 2009's Domain of the Dead from Scottish author Iain McKinnon and comes with a foreword from award-winning horror writer Joe McKinney. With an introduction like that, hopes were pretty high for this titleRemains of the Dead isn't so much of a sequel as a companion piece to its predecessor. ROTD follows some of the already established characters from DOTD, principally the squad of weary combat veterans led by Cahz and some of the survivors who didn't ma [...]

    7. So, to start off the review, Remains of the Dead is a sequel. I did not realize this until after I had completed the book. I am definitely interested in going back and reading it’s predecessor Domain of the Dead, but I had no problem with any of the story lines in Remains of the Dead, so it could definitely be read as a standalone novel.The tale is divided into 2 storylines. From one perspective you have Ali’s story. Ali was one of the warehouse survivors who gets separated from the group an [...]

    8. No-one is safe in Iain McKinnon's world and everyone is expendable! This just heightens the suspense as you know the 'hero' isn't just automatically gonna 'make it' to the end, that is if there is a hero at all. Great follow on from Domain of the Dead.The only negative I would say (and this is why it got 4 not 5 stars!) is that it was quite repetitive of book 1 at the beginning. Whether it was just to bring readers who hadn't read book 1 up to speed I'm not sure but it was literally large chunks [...]

    9. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Remains of the Dead ever since I finished Iain McKinnons first novel (Domain of the Dead). As soon as the book arrived on my doorstep, I started reading and I loved every single page of it. I was not dissappointed at all.This book is exciting, terrifying, emotional and down right amazing from start to end. Iain McKinnon has wrote a tremendous sequel (Of a sort - as the story actually runs parallel to the 1st Book)and has delivered everything I hoped fo [...]

    10. Really great follow up to Domain of the Dead, taking us back to the military and survivors left in the anonymous city that started in Domain. The pace of this book is much faster than Domain, and yet I felt like I was closer to the characters and their struggle. There really aren't noble heroes here. Just ordinary humans attempting to survive until their military pick up arrives. For zombie afficianados, plenty of handy tips and ideas on surviving in this book. But the characters aren't one dime [...]

    11. Iain McKinnon has written a great Z story. When a group of survivors hear a helicopter land adjacent to the wharehouse where they have been holed up for years, they decide to bolt through the horde of undead to reach it. The first book, Domain of the Dead, dealt with the ones who made it onto the helicopter. The second book, Remains of the Dead, tells the story of those that were left behind. I hated having to put these books down at night. The Romero style zombies are creepy, the writing is fas [...]

    12. I liked this quite a bit but it loses out on a star for me because of the abrupt, open ending and the fact that my favorite character was killed off - unless there is a sequel with a daytime soap-opera type twistI get that it is horror, that it is a zombie book, but I really need someone to connect to and root for and they kind of need to survive for me to really be satisfied, killing them off at the end just sort of ruins the rest for me. *sigh*

    13. Just when you think it couldn't get any better from book one here comes book 2 I liked this one even more I was holding my breath the whole way thru this book At one point I was wanting to throw my iPad across the room because I couldn't take what was happening but I didn't I just got up and started pacing the room! It's a must read

    14. Roller coaster from start to finishI feel like I've been on the edge of my seat throughout! I actually thought this was better than Domain of the Dead, and I REALLY liked that. Tense, action-packed with a large smattering of futility and desperation. On to number 3 to find out what happened to those in the boat and those inland

    15. I really liked this. A lot of times you will read zombie fiction and it's very poorly written, but Iain McKinnon is a true writer. Inventive prose and really great vocabulary throughout. It's a quick read and very enjoyable.

    16. Really enjoyed this story, and there were some definite surprises along the way. One character I wanted eaten made it to the end LOL, and didn't seem quite the idiot he was at the beginning! I'm hoping there is a sequel, as it certainly hints at it.

    17. This novel was well written. Seems to be a very dark novel, without much hope. Very creepy. Lots of action. I hope to read more by Iain McKinnon.

    18. In Remains of the Dead, author Iain McKinnon sets up a fairly straightforward scenario. A military group from one of the only non-infested strongholds in the zombie-ravaged world comes across a group of survivors while on a routine mission. Their transport isn't big enough for everyone, so a handful of soldiers and civilians agree to stay in hostile territory until a rescue flight can be launched. The main group holes up in an office building while a lone civilian tries to find shelter in an ove [...]

    19. Every once in a while I see a movie (Tideland) or a particular news story (aftermath of Katrina; the earthquake/tsunami in Japan) and it still haunts me years later. Never has a book haunted me except for a short time after I’ve finished it. I have read thousands of books, some of them horror or zombie related, but thinking back, I can’t say that I have felt haunted months after reading them. Creeped out and disturbed, yes, but haunted? No. Until now. Remains of the Dead. I read this book a [...]

    20. After reading Iain Mckinnon's 3 ZA books in the last 2 weeks, i have to say that there are few who write as well as him. Remains of the Dead runs in parallel to Domain Of the Dead with a crossover of characters. Iain shows such an impressive attention to detail, with aspects of a ZA that others have left out. The writing is fluid, and always entertaining, with enough gore to satisfy. What Iain excels in is the human perspective with believable reactions from each of the characters. Don't ever ex [...]

    21. This is the sequel to Domain of the Dead. What I love about this story is that it tells the other half of the story and it takes the same space of time. When I first read Domain, I didn`t know about Remains and I was so mad because I wanted to know what happened to the others. This story made me happy. It also made me sad in several ways. Iain McKinnon is a great writer.

    22. Building on the excellent setting from the first book, Domain of the Dead, author Iain McKinnon now tells the story of those the helicopter left behind. Trapped in a city crawling with WalKing Dead (WDs, or Whiskey Deltas, in Milspeak), the characters try to survive in an increasingly hostile situation until the helicopter brings them salvation .

    23. I once said that Iain McKinnon is a Writer. His prose make my own humble verbiage seem like the random mashing of paws by an insane monkey upon a defective keyboard.I loved this book. It was wonderful.

    24. The story was pretty good but the ending leaves you hanging. I can only hope there will be another book in the series.
