|Plot Summary of The Domination|
An alternative history based, in part, on the Sparta-Athens wars. The "bad" guys are portrayed in a very sympathetic manner if one can get beyond the violence. Not for the faint of heart. Excellent!
This synopsis report prepared by Doon
This is three books in one detailing the life of a family line that belongs to a harsh society of an alternate Earth and told from their point of view. It starts at WW II and ends in a space conclusion in the near future. The Draka want to rule the world and they have a good foot hold, will the united states and the alliance be able to stop their plans?
This synopsis report prepared by Kristie Jones
A very unusual alternate history. After the American Revolution, Loyalists from the breakaway USA fled to South Africa, rather than Canada. They then went on to build a huge, militaristic, slave-holding empire called the Domination of the Draka. This volume (a collection of three earlier books) tells how the US and the Draka struggle to dominate the world in the 20th Century. Most of the main characters are Draka, giving many insights into this horrifying, fascinating alternate society.
