Book Review: Unholy Domain

I recently had the pleasure of reading the futuristic techno-thriller Unholy Domain by Dan Ronco. This story moves along at a break-neck pace as we follow the life and times of the son of the man who nearly destroyed the world (or at least that’s what The Domain would have you believe) on his journey to discover the truth about his past and come to grips with his role in humanity’s uncertain future. After the world is brought to its knees by a particularly nasty computer virus, Peacemaker, technology is held in contempt. Two distinct factions (the religious extremist, Church of the Natural Humans and the technos) rise from the aftermath and struggle to assert their dominance and beliefs on the country. Each claims to have humanity’s best interest at heart, but neither will make the world a better place.


Unholy Domain is hands-down the best techno-thriller I’ve read in recent years and I look forward to reading more of Mr. Ronco’s work. I highly recommend this book to one and all.



Synopsis


A deliberately staged IT catastrophe leaves the world sunk into depression and the US government ineffectual. The secretive and powerful Domain, using organized crime to spread its technology, seeks to take humankind to the next level of evolution through artificial intelligence. The fanatical Army of God battles to stop them. Dan Ronco’s fast-paced techno-thriller depicts a world of violent extremes, where religious terrorists and visionaries of technology fight for supreme power.



Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

I always like reading books about IT stuff cause I like to figure out if the author really knows their stuff. ;)
