From the moment I saw a picture of the cover of Dominance on the Goodreads giveaway page, I knew I wanted to read it. It's a bloody axe made of books! I was thrilled when, the second time it came up for entry, I actually won. I thought I would love it and I was right.
Dominance is like Agatha Christie on crack. I absolutely could not put it down; you should have seen my trying to cook dinner tonight, one hand holding up the book, the other stirring the pot. In 1994 a group of nine college students gathered to take a literature course from a professor who was in jail for the murder of two students. What they didn't know when they signed up was that the class was a twisted game... Years later when one of the nine students is killed, the rest gather for the funeral under one roof. When more murders occur, it's up to Alex to figure out what's going on.
I loved this book! It's a mystery within a mystery that slowly unravels. I was hooked right away even though I had no idea what was going on until at least a few chapters in. Once "The Procedure" was explained, I got it, and I was hooked even more. Seriously, the plot was amazing enough to warrant five stars from me on it's own. The only thing I didn't like about the book was the character of Aldiss. Most of the time when he spoke, I just wanted to kick him and scream, "Enough with your games, already!" What twisted character.
And the last chapter in the book, ou baby, it was good.
Go read this book!
PS: Even though I won this book and got a copy free from the publisher, that fact did not influence my review.
