I have always wanted to write but didn't know what to write. I can now write articles about what I like and I love it.

The Author

Ricky Dragoni has written the following books The Angel of a Madman, Prime Infinity, Ripples, and this book. He is originally from Puerto Rico but has spent most of his life here in the United States. He loves to cook and write. He loves to write so that the reader can be entertained and to think. He loves Edgar Allen Poe.

Plot Summary

The people of Storm Lake, Iowa must decide what to do when they are separated from their families after the military evacuated their town. The military came when their electricity and technology stopped working. Some were taken away while the rest was left behind. The ones left behind decide to separate into two groups. Soon it becomes a matter of survival. They realize that they are not alone. They start hunting these things called the Swift. Soon the hunters become the prey. Who will survive the people or the Swifts? Will they loose there humanity. Will they make it to the military base to find their loved ones? Will they find the answers that they seek?

My Thoughts

This is the second book that I have read written by this author. I love this book. This book caught my attention from the moment that I first started reading it. It took me two days to read this due to work but it was worth the time. Ricky, the author, has a way with words. His writing is so descriptive that it feels like you are there instead of reading about it. The characters blend together. I think the cover fits perfectly with the novel. Another expect that I love is that it has conversations between the characters and it does go back to what life was like before this happened. This book will keep you on your toes.

The ending was not what I expected and you will have to read the book to find out what the Swift is.

I can't wait to read the other two books by this author.


I would definitely recommend this book to any reader who loves to read genres like science fiction, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, and horror literature. This 117-page novel is probably more for mature young adults and over due to violence and killing. I really enjoyed this novel.
