Dominion - C.J. Sansom

This is one of those books that I am so glad I snagged it from NetGalley. This book is right up my alley and I'm not sure I would have seen it or read it if it had not been for NetGalley. This is an alternate history book showing what might have happened if Britain had surrendered to Germany during WWII. I love historical fiction that takes place during WWII but haven't read much alternate history yet so this book was a mix of something that I love and something new.


This book follows a couple different characters, most of them British (but there is also a German character and one from Slovakia). Usually I don't really like when a book switches point-of-view between more than two or three characters but this time I feel like it really enhanced the story. The switching of point-of-view really allowed readers to see how all the characters were connected.


The way that Sansom portrays England if they had surrendered to Germany was horrifying yet fascinating. I really enjoyed that he took some time in the back of the book to really explain his reasoning for it.


This book is more than 600 pages but it didn't seem like it at all. I was so focused in on this book that time and the pages just flew by. I really enjoyed all the suspense and twists and turns in this book. I was on the edge of my seat while reading the ending of this book. I didn't want it to end yet I loved the way that Sansom ended it.


I would highly recommend this book to people who like WWII historical fiction, even if you aren't too sure about the whole alternate history thing, this book won't let you down.


Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me the chance to read this book.
