I struggled through the first half of “The Aldar Dominion,” although truthfully, the almost continuous action made the journey more enjoyable. About a third of the way through the story shifted and became something else, and about halfway through the plot seemed like it would become more inventive, more interesting.

I was happy to see the changes, as from time to time there were jarring instances that yanked me out of the story. Numerous instances of people from the 24th century talking like they

Katherine Bogle pulled me into the world of The Aldar Dominion right off the bat, effectively creating a futuristic society full of aliens, clones, and futuristic technology. Selene is a kickass heroine who constantly amused me with her Buffy-like banter, and the plot was so suspenseful and unpredictable that I didn't want to put the book down. This is an entertaining, action-packed read, and I look forward to reading the next in the series!

My mind is still stuttering in shock! What an amazing thrill ride. Just when you *think* you have things figured out.... SURPRISE... another twist. Set in another time when to save humanity, aliens teach them to transfer their minds into clones to become immortal. The world is filled with three types of beings: nats or naturals (natural born humans), clones and aliens. Selene has no memory of her life from before five years ago when she stowed aboard Rikkarts smuggling ship. The gruff leader of ...more

The Aldar Dominion is the first book in the exciting Dominion Rising science-fiction series by Katherine Bogle. It's an adrenaline pumping story with a hint of romance. The main character in Book 1 is Selena, the stowaway who has lost most of her memory in The Stowaway Experiment prequel. She's part of Rikkard's team as a smuggler, but her focus is on saving abused animals. Rikkard goes along with her good-will causes as he has a soft spot for her. Their luck is running out and the Dominion is b ...more

The plot was very intriguing as we are dropped headfirst on the missions of Selene . It was certainly fast paced and had me at the edge of my seats especially the fighting scenes. The world building was interesting but lacked details as there are still a few questions that are left unanswered.

Selene was interesting and had a very intriguing past. I liked how she tried her best to always help her friends or try to find the truth. Rikkarts was a person that was morally grey. He clearly cared for

Wow! This is one of the best sci fi action romance stories I’ve read. It’s a fast moving rollicking journey with fantastic characters battling the baddies at every turn. Selena is my favourite character, strong and caring, never giving up or in. She hides her feelings for Rik even from herself. A little reckless, a little daring, Selena spends much of her time rescuing animals and looking after Kong, her ape friend. She has no trouble shooting the bad guys. But there’s so much more to this story ...more

Anyone who likes books about the future that may be coming will like this new series. Selena is at the beginning of everything and is starting to remember when she dreams.
Lots of suspense and action keep this story moving along really quick. I cannot wait to see what happens next. This book is not boring and the writing is top notch.

This book is excellent. It took me a few chapters to get into the swing of the story but after that I literally couldn't put it down! It has a great storyline with lots of twists and surprises along the way. The characters are all excellent with individual personalities and traits. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one!

I found this to be an interesting story. I felt connected right away to the plot and was sucked in. I couldn't wait to get to the end of this story! Everything was paced well, but made to feel exciting and crazy. The characters were well developed also. All around a great start to a new series!

Generally recommended if you like sci-fi action, government conspiracy, and a very tiny slice of romance. It's a short read where a lot happens.

This book was great! I usually go with YA fantasy, so it was a fantastic change of pace! It was a little slow going in the beginning, but please stick with it. There are pirates, aliens, daring rescues, gritty weapons, and so much more. What a fun summer read!
