Sharp-witted, luck-wrangling mercenary Domino takes on both a dangerous cult and her own dark past, in this explosive introduction to the new series of Marvel prose novels
The job: infiltrate a Chicago conman’s cult to liberate some brainwashed twins. For former X-Force operative Domino, that’s a flat “no”. Fanatics are bad news. She still suffers from 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. Maybe it is time to finally face those demons. With her mutant powers she can turn even the worst of situations to her advantage.
TRISTAN PALMGREN is the author of the critically acclaimed genre-warping blend of historical fiction and space opera novel Quietus, and its sequel Terminus. They have been a clerk, a factory technician, a university lecturer, a cashier, a secretary, a retail manager, a rural coroner's assistant. In their lives on parallel Earths, they have been an ant farm tycoon, funeral home enthusiast, professional con-artist impersonator, laser pointer chaser, and the person who somehow landed a trademark for the word "Avuncular." Jealous. They live with their partner in Salem, Virginia.
“It’s a great book that can put you into the same heart-pounding position as its characters, just trying to figure it all out.”
– Barnes & Noble, Fantasy Blog
“Ambitious and intelligent, breathing new life into familiar forms. Truly outstanding.”
– Una McCormack, New York Times-bestselling Author
"Being able to explore the grey areas of mutant life is what makes Domino a joy and Domino: Strays by Tristan Palmgren acts like a primer for the character."
– SF Book
"An action-packed blast of balletic violence and snappy dialogue with an unexpectedly thoughtful, psychological core… All told it’s tremendously entertaining and compulsively readable, with a wonderfully strong voice and a fresh identity all of its own."
– Track of Words
"This is a really great book that gives so much more backstory to a lesser-known Marvel character than could have been achieved in a graphic novel. A very strong female cast of role models."
