The Last Girl (The Dominion Trilogy #1) Reviews
Sometime in the not too distant future. Following a war and a plague, female births have declined dramatically for reasons unknown. Much of the population is gone, especially females, and the authorities have locked up several of the the surviving young women into a large facility where they spend all their time indoors, being studied, manipulated, and fighting with each other until they reach the ripe age of 21. Then they are permanently separated out, apparently to get busy having babie ...more
Only slightly better than awful. Sneaky advertising led me to select this book as a Kindle First, even though I just KNEW it was going to be another dystopian, faux-mighty female driven disappointment.
Firstly, you can definitely tell that this book was written by a man. The main character Zoey is completely unbelievable as a woman. Even though at 21, she's still just a girl. Somehow she is miraculously is the gun whisperer, having an innate knowledge of various weapons and is a stellar markswom ...more

I got this book free through the Kindle First program.
I thought this book was great and it really ticked me off what these people were doing to these girls.
Supposedly, this virus/plague came through and did something to where there were hardly any females born, so this group of jerks in the government (naturally) goes through and nabs all of the baby girls, or young girls they could find and bring them back to the compound. They kill a l ...more
The Last Girl – Book One The Dominion Trilogy by Joe Hart
Published by Thomas & Mercer
An old fashioned, science fiction cat and mouse story that combines all the now ‘traditional’ tropes of the YA post apocalyptic dystopian genre with a horrifying premise and super hero like protagonist. Whilst the first half of the book is quite tempered and focused on world building, the second half really opens up and has more action than your average Tom Cruise movie.
There are no female babies being born ...more
I have one of those weirdo fascinations with books with a dystopian theme. That whole end of the world thing just draws me in.
Now just because I read a bunch of them don't think I'm the one to save your bum when the crud hits the fan. I'll probably be dead in just a few seconds. I'm not much for living without coffee and toilet paper.
In this scenario all the girl babies have stopped being born. Some kind of epidemic stuff happens and it changed everything. The government steps in. You know that ...more
So much tragedy. So much emotion. This is a spellbinding story of survival. An action packed, emotion filled dystopian with shades of apocalypse. A heart-stopping, thrilling ride with our heroine.
Zoey, oh sweet, strong Zoey. So much destruction. So much pain.
4.5 stars for this superbly well written story. I'm keeping half a star back for a plot twist that I wish had gone in a different direction. Nothing but personal preference. It worked well the way it was presented.
This is how a book should b ...more
This was a Kindle First read for February so I got to read it for free. Here's the deal on this - it was a very engaging read. In fact, it was such a page turner that I stayed up late last night. I'd read the next book in the series. The problems, however, are REALLY irritating (SPOILER-ISH):
1. I understand keeping the girls under lock and key. I even get that they're in a military installation under lock and key. But WHY waste time psychologically torturing them when they break a rule? That jus ...more
