Domino: Strays by Tristan Palmgren Review

The following review is spoiler-free.

 Domino takes on both a dangerous cult and her own dark past.

Plot: The job: infiltrate a Chicago conman’s cult to liberate some brainwashed twins. For former X-Force operative Domino, that’s a “hell no”. Fanatics are bad news. She still has nightmares about Project Armageddon, the super-soldier program that wrecked her life and destroyed her family. If only she’d had someone to help her back then, someone… like her. It’s a total pain in the ass, but maybe it is time to finally face those demons. With her probability manipulating superpowers she can turn even the worst of situations to her advantage.

Why I requested this: I have some familiarity with Domino, but add in a cult. I had to know more.


  • Domino. I know, she’s the star of the book, but listen. Part of the draw was learning about her dark past. Plus, it was fun being in her head.
  • The action. When you write about a comic-book character, you run the risk of being too action-packed or not filled with enough action; however, Tristan Palmgren manages to find a good balance between the two.
  • The development of the cult that’s part of Domino’s job. What can I say, I love a good well-developed cult.


  • Multiple story-lines. Sometimes the story-lines in this are a bit harder to follow.

Overall: Multiple story-lines can bring down the enjoyment, but Domino shines in this story.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I received an ecopy of this book via Netgalley; however, my opinions are my own.
