Discover the how and why behind Dominic’s evil actions. Are you brave enough to see how a Zombie Master is born?

When I first started reading this series, I was always interested in know why certain characters were the way they were. Dominic was one of those characters. When I found out that Bonnie was doing a short story for him, I was thrilled. Bonnie and I have a really cool/awesome friendship and business relationship and I was able to design the covers for this series :) Anyway, back to the book. This novella honestly could have been turned into a whole book if she wanted to. There are so many layers to Dominic you almost crave more.

After reading this book, I honestly feel that I understand him so much more. Not that I agree with his way of thinking, but I definitely see where his hatred for women comes from, and it is almost a just hatred. Even though its not fair to generalize, what happened to him almost makes you feel bad for him and want to comfort him.

I love the scene in the kitchen with Dominic and his mother and father. People who have read this will know, its comical what happens in a morbid bizarre way. But I loved it. No remorse, I just love it.

I don't think this is a book you'd have to read prior to starting the series, but it is one you should read while reading this series, to understand how Dominic became the monster that he is in the series! Bravo Bonnie!
