Saving Raine (The Drone Wars: Book 1) by Frederick Lee Brooke

This is a book set in the future and it has very different premise than most you read.  The worst part is that it sounds very realistic and could be possible...

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me the opportunity to read and review this book (thank you).  You can buy the book wherever ebooks are sold.

Matt, 19, is the main character in this story.  He doesn't fit well in his family because his father has remarried and the stepmother and her children don't like him.  The youngest boy, who is Matt's half-brother, likes him but can't do anything to help the situation.

When the FBI comes in and takes his father away, it gets worse.  His stepmother kicks him out of his bedroom and makes him move to the basement.  As he is gathering up his stuff, he finds a communication from his father hidden in his room.  The message is short and sweet.  He needs to go get his girlfriend, who is in college at Stanford, and protect her.  When Matt leaves, his half-brother follows him.

This is where things start to get weird.  Almost everyone in government gets assassinated.  That leaves one minor politician of the right political party to move up to President.  The man that steps in fires anyone who disagrees with him.  And then he decides to use drones to spy on people.  (That sounds almost familiar, doesn't it?)

While Matt and Benjy are running to California, they find bridges bombed, highways blocked, and killers prowling the roads.  Even worse, Raine doesn't want to be saved.  She doesn't even want to see Matt anymore...

The story is fast paced, full of action, and not a bit boring.  When you get to the end of the story, you realize that it's just one big chapter of Matt's new life and it's not over yet.  There will be a sequel.

Frederick will be awarding a $25 Amazon gift card (international) and an autographed copy of Saving Raine (US only) to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.  Enter here.
