Today, I will be sharing my review of Killer Domes and the Chosen One by Gibbo Gibbs with you all.
As the old world burned, the elite departed to colonise space in search of a new home. Most of the human species perished on earth’s surface, but a protected few remained. Many generations passed without question, but now suspicions are starting to rise.
Follow the story of Maz and her best friend Hap, as a chance encounter with a stranger lures them into a mission to decide the future of humankind.
Killer Domes and the Chosen One isn’t my usual type of book, but I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised, and I actually thoroughly enjoyed this book.
To begin with, it took a little while to understand what was happening, because you were thrown in to a new, unknown world. However, things are soon explained, and the story becomes a lot easier to understand. I really liked the idea of dome worlds, and found the plot extremely interesting. It gave me definite black mirror vibes. There wasn’t a single character in the story that I didn’t like (including the villains), and I particularly liked the strong female characters.
The way the author described the downfall of humanity with the line “Human greed destroyed the old world.” is actually quite a realistic possibility for how humanity will destroy themselves. Human greed knows no boundaries, and the current crisis we are living in has definitely highlighted that. The crazy panic buying/stock piling, constant complaints about having to stay in, and people breaking lockdown, shows just how greedy and selfish humanity can really be.
Despite it being a short read, it is action packed from beginning to end, and there were quite a few twists that I really didn’t see coming. It is a thoroughly enjoyable book, that I could easily have devoured in one sitting. Even if like me, this isn’t your preferred genre, I will still highly recommend reading this book.
Thank you to the author, Gibbo Gibbs, for my copy, in exchange for an honest review.
I give Killer Domes and the Chosen One a 4 star rating.
