No Dominion

Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

Publisher's Summary

Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

The only way for him to lay his hands on both is to take a gig with the local Vampyre Clan. See, something new is on the streets, a new high, a high so strong it can send a Vampyre spazzing through Joe's local watering hole - till Joe sends him through a plate-glass window, that is. It won't be long now before he's slapping stoolies, getting sapped, and being taken for a ride above 110th Street.

Someone's pulling Joe's strings, and he's gonna cut them when he finds them - the strings and the hands that hold them.

Dying for more? Listen to the first book, Already Dead.

What the Critics Say

"There are echoes of Raymond Chandler and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices of the 21st-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston is where it's at." (Washington Post Book World)
"The doomed love story at the heart of Huston's action-filled epic is what truly makes this a noir novel, and the undead microcosm of society he creates is both surprisingly relevant and entertaining." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great sequel"

    Great book, but he cover that Audible uses is embarrassing. The narrator grew on my in the second book. A little predictable, kind of simple, but engrossing.

    "Better than the 1st"

    This book was great. I really enjoyed the plot as well as the narrator, who brings the book to life. Wish they had more books from the series.

    Story
    "Vampires with no stakes (but high-stakes politics)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of No Dominion to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print edition, so I can't really say. However, Brick did a good job conveying the laid-back nature of a couple of the characters (esp. a hippie leader of one faction), which I wouldn't have picked up on quickly without his narration. He's obviously a talented performer, so bound to make the most of what the text has to offer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a first-person story, so we of course identify with the main character, who is a nice mix of tough guy and worrywart.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I really liked all the character voices *other* than the main character, who, presumably by request of the author, has a sort of trite noir-detective New York twang. Every time the story returned from other groups (the downtown hippies, the way-uptown black toughs, the mysterious druidical sect) to our main character, I cringed a little again. But the story and overall narration were great, so I was pulled along.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It had fast and slow stretches, so there were some breaks when I didn't mind having to take my headphones off. But I did want to get back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at all typical of how vampires are handled, and honestly, the sort of detective story and political maneouvering are much more central to the story than is the vampire aspect, so it might appeal to plenty of people who are put off by all the romantic woes of the mainstream vampire cadre...

    I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    "Adds nothing to the genre"

    This was okay to listen to, but it did not draw me in at all. This adds nothing extra to the genre.

    "I missed something...is this book two?"

    Scott Brick could not even salvage this listen. I have no history and I felt like I jumped into the middle of the story. This is a vampire story and there was no biting, there disease was caused by a virus...I think. I have no idea what made me choose this book but thank goodness it was a 4.95 blue moon special. I forced myself to finish it to see if it would make any sense in the end...it didn't.

    "Great story"

    I liked the original a little better, but it's still great and I can't wait for the next installment on audible.com.

    "Like the Story But Offended by the Narration"
    Would you listen to No Dominion again? Why?

    No


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Actually a little slow.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    I don't know who to replace him with, but Scott's dialect used to characterize black people in his perception of the ghetto, was extremly offensive and over the top. Why not just resurrect the "Black Face" Amos and Andy white men playing black men from the 40's amd 50's on radio.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, Yes, Yes. I like the story line but was completely turned-off as an African-American by the dialect used to project what the author and narrator think black people sound like. Exactly, what audience is that playing to?


    Any additional comments?

    I am conflicted as to buying any other books narrated in the same fashion. I really cannot see spending my money for more offensive narration. I will add that since I got the book on tape, whcih I purchase hundreds of during the year, I do not know if Mr. Houston uses the same dialectics in the written words. If that is the case, it is extremely offensive both in the written words and the narration and I can believe many are offended.

    The book is a real sleeper. Perhaps it's the narrator's voice inflection and overall tone.
