Dragonflies (Books 1 & 2)
A MIND-BENDING TECHNOTHRILLER FROM SHAMUS AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR ANDY STRAKA (WITH DURRELL NELSON) Former Army helicopter pilot Raina Sanchez, grounded after being shot down and desperate to be back in the air, plunges into a brave new world of stealth-killing micro-drones. But her loyalties take a potential detour when she begins to understand a chilling reality. In an America where surveillance devices as small as insects are secretly piloted into places most would never imagine, public and private forces large and small are maneuvering to control them with inevitable consequences. With personal allegiances and even love weighing in the balance, Raina soon confronts a threat that may alter the course of history. “She studied the MAVs for a few moments. They were beautiful in their own way, she thought…What happens when the machines we build become more like us?” PRAISE FOR DRAGONFLIES: "Dragonflies nails the sweet spot where science fiction meets thriller. Straka’s dreamed up a helluva team for a helluva series. What a ride!" – John Gilstrap, NY Times bestselling Author “Mysterious government projects, conspiracy, and a hint of a future romance…a skillfully crafted plotline, suspenseful build-up and a climatic cliffhanger.... you can guarantee I’ll be impatiently waiting to read the second in the series.” – NetGalley Devours
