"Exciting . . . What elevates Dominion above sheer white-knuckle entertainment ... are Samson's empathetic, complex characters and the frighteningly believable alternative world he creates. Dominion's pages fly by in a frenzy, but this is a book that lingers." (3.5/4 stars)—Jocelyn McClurg, USA Today
"C.J. Sansom has long been one of my favorite writers, but DOMINION may be his most richly imagined book yet: it's a wonderful example of what the novel can do--a through-the-looking-glass glimpse into a world that might have been, and almost was."
, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life
"A highly charged and deeply inventive literary thriller . . . An exhilarating page-turner . . . Alternative history on a grand scale."
, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A terrific novel."
"Sansom has an original and impressive voice. Rich details add depth to the story. Absorbing and richly conceived."
, Seattle Times
"Sansom is a skilled storyteller...Dominion's ingenious premise is a doozy."—Dan DeLuca, Philadelphia Inquirer
"DOMINION will make you cry...highly recommended...a wonderful novel."
—Nancy Pearl, KUOW public radio (Seattle)
"Gripping . . . A race-against-time thriller set against an imaginative and internally consistent historical backdrop, the novel should definitely appeal to fans of alternate history, especially the WWII novels of Harry Turtledove or Robert Conroy, and, of course, Robert Harris' classic Fatherland."—Booklist
"The best novel of its kind since Robert Harris's Fatherland."—Charles Cumming, New York Times bestselling author of The Trinity Six
"Long and engaging. Rich and densely plotted. All too real.
—Kirkus (starred review)
"Intriguing. Page-turning. Delicious."
—Library Journal (featured review)
"Exciting, sophisticated, and moving. There will be few better historical novels published this year."
, The Times (UK)
"An invented mid-20th-century Britain that has the intricate detail and delineation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth."
, The Guardian
, The Independent
"Sansom has an unerring sense of pace and a deft historical touch."
—The New Yorker
"C.J. Sansom can lay claim to a place among the most distinguished of modern historical novelists."
