, (PressExposure) January 25, 2008 -- Unholy Domain, Dan Ronco's new novel from Kunati Books, has been compared to the works of legendary science fiction author Philip K. Dick. While many have praised PeaceMaker, Ronco's first novel, the comparison to Philip K. Dick is more apparent in Unholy Domain. This dark novel is a thought provoking, edgy look at the near future, much like Blade Runner, Minority Report and other Dick classics. No admirer of the old master should miss Unholy Domain.
"Unholy Domain tackles the age-old battle of scientific enlightenment and reason vs. religious fanaticism. In a future world ravaged by technology two factions fight for supremacy. Dan Ronco tells a tale that is unique, provocative, and engrossing while maintaining enough slam-bang action to keep you turning the pages. It reads like a cross between Blade Runner and Angels and Demons."
--R. Douglas Weber, author of Solomon's Key: The CODIS Project
"Dan Ronco fills the gap left by Philip K. Dick with Unholy Domain."--Simon Wood, the Anthony Award winning author of Paying the Piper
