REVIEW: Drones by Johnny Ray

by Johnny Ray

Matalina heads the elite special forces of Baltonia, a small country near Switzerland, and where the Maliviziati maintain their secret society that opposes the Illuminati’s various splinter groups that want to create a new world order. While she directs the most powerful special operatives in the world, she is very capable of going solo when needed. She was bred like her parents and theirs before to be the best warrior in the world. Unfortunately, her chosen mate, Bjorn, has turned against them, killing her sister in the process. She loved him earlier, and perhaps she still does. Still, when she finds him, she will kill him. When a new faction attempts to release drones in America, Matalina has to respond to keep this from playing into the hands of those wanting to create a new world order. She soon learns that the leader of this group is one of Bjorn’s operatives, Mario, a guy she should kill, but he is also the one person she needs to take alive to be able to locate Bjorn. With mercenaries flown in from Columbia to help this terrorist faction which was formed out of Afghanistan, this novel circles the globe as many players fight for eventual control of the world.

REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I found this book extremely well-written. The writing flowed smoothly, and the scenes were very descriptive. There was plenty of action to keep the reader turning the pages, full of espionage, explosions and one very kick-butt woman. Matalina is probably the hardest woman I've ever known as a character, not confusing, but physically overpowering.
Being as hard of a woman as she was, it was hard to really empathize with her. She had no problems with killing anyone, no remorse at all at times, and yet, at the same time, she was supposed to be this princess of a country that no one has ever heard about. A country that was centered around destroying the Illuminati.
The Illuminati never really showed up in the book, and it seemed to end up being a power battle between Matalina and the US CIA. Apparently she has bigger cajones than the US CIA.
The ending was what kept me on the edge of my seat, because for some odd reason, I'm hoping to see a softer side of Matalina through her semi-arranged marriage.
