Quigley is a jolly, shaggy dog living in the remote mountain village of Sparrowdale, Colorado. Life for the mop-haired Komondor and Gavin, his beloved human companion, is nothing short of perfect. But one evening, during Quigley and Gavin’s playful stroll around the neighborhood, a spontaneous plague strikes Sparrowdale’s population. Its impact on the small mountain town is apocalyptic.


Helpless, Quigley witnesses Gavin’s sudden transformation from a loving, dutiful friend into a growling, blood-thirsty beast, single-minded in his pursuit of human flesh. His companion has become an angry-hungry, one among thousands of the infected creatures now hunting and rampaging throughout Sparrowdale.

Horrified by Gavin’s unexplained metamorphosis, Quigley remains tethered to his human, bound by love, loyalty, and leash. But when Gavin begins to prowl the streets for victims to consume and infect, the dog faces a heart-wrenching dilemma.

Compelled by his instinctive urge to protect those in need, Quigley must decide whether to stay by Gavin’s side or confront his fiendish companion. Will the dog’s undying devotion to his caregiver endure even as the undead predator unleashes his raging hunger upon the innocent?

This deserves a series of books, a movie deal, hell, a series. I fully recommend that you must read it.

Allen, on GoodReads

This is the most unusual zombie apocalyptic tale I’ve ever read, and I’ve read hundreds!

I enjoyed it very much and hope to read more by author Nic Roads.

Ami, on GoodReads


I wanted more. An entire novel. A whole series. A movie.

DL, on GoodReads

Wait, you wrote what? A story about a Dominatrix fighting zombies? Okay. Remind me why I paid for your college education again?

There's literally nothing in this book that's political. Not even one word. So I give it five stars.


Some guy on Facebook

"Dom of the Dead" was brilliant. Engaging, beginning to end. Loved the characters, smart women are a turn-on. The twist at the end was wonderful.
