a riveting final instalment which rarely stops for breath . . . this final book is arguably the best of the three, tying up all the thematic threads about society and morality in a violent, gripping race against time * The Herald * this gripping, immersive tale makes for a deeply satisfying culmination to Welsh's contribution to the apoca-lit genre * Guardian * An excellent depiction of how far and how fast our so-called civilization could fall given the right stimulus * Crime Review * No Dominion gripped me and broke my heart in equal measure * Val McDermid * A horribly plausible scenario * Sunday Times * Thanks to its disconcerting plausibility and its solid heart, the gripping, immersive No Dominion makes for a deeply satisfying culmination to Welsh's contribution to the apoca-lit genre * Guardian * A gripping debate about politics and ethics . . . brilliantly uncomfortable reading * Scotland on Sunday * It's a thriller that thrills, but it's also a platform for a wry, spry discussion of civilisation, urbanism and connectedness, human and environmental * Sunday Herald * Most impressive is Welsh's evocative and sharp prose, and her keen observation of the darkest recesses of the human psyche, the stuff that bubbles to the top in times of stress and hardship . . . compelling * Big Issue * A heart-breaking, thrilling, frightening page-turner of a chiller . . . Welsh taps into the fear of what a world is chaos would be like and that fear bursts out of every page * CrimeSquad * A vivid, action-packed journey through a post-apocalyptic world. Terrifying and touching in equal measure, the novel is a love story, an adventure, a road movie, a family drama and a murder mystery rolled into one * The Times Scotland *
