Religious Terrorists Clash with Technology Visionaries in Blockbuster Novel


Unholy Domain, Dan Ronco’s new thriller from Kunati Books , is scheduled for release April 2, 2008. This dark novel has been compared to the works of authors such as Dan Brown, William Gibson, Robert Sawyer and Philip K. Dick. In Unholy Domain, Ronco ( takes an edgy look at the near future. New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony calls Unholy Domain “top rate adventure... sparkling with ideas.”

“The comparison to Phillip K. Dick and other bestselling authors, and the praise by an author of the stature of Piers Anthony are extremely gratifying, but not surprising,” said Kunati publisher Derek Armstrong. “Dan Ronco’s writing teems with stimulating ideas about the future of the human race. His storytelling is outstanding. He looks into the human heart and finds both the dark and the transcendent.”


A decade after a devastating computer virus was unleashed upon America and the world, civilization has crumbled in an economic failure that rivals the Great Depression of the previous century. The US government is on the brink of collapse. In the power vacuum that results, two rival powers battle for control of the world’s future.

The Domain, the secretive and highly advanced society of technologists, prepares to bring down the government and seize control of the Internet and world power. Its goal is to take humanity to the next level of evolution, using artificial intelligence to accomplish this.

The fanatical Army of God vows to eradicate all technology—the tool of Lucifer—and return the world to its true, “natural” state. Led by a charismatic but deadly demagogue, the Army of God ruthlessly exterminates all who get in its way. Its ultimate goal is to defeat The Domain.

Caught in the middle is David Brown, a gifted but troubled young man, who believes that his father unleashed the computer virus that brought the world to disaster. But was his father the monster the world has made of him? David sets out to clear his father’s name and find his murderers.

Dan Ronco’s fast-paced techno-thriller depicts a world of violent extremes, where religious terrorists and visionaries of technology fight for supreme power.
