The novel “Drone World” is set in a futuristic dystopian city like the books of Divergent or Maze Runner. The book’s content is similar to the movies ‘Minority Report’ (predicting crime) meets ‘Logan’s Run’ (authority determines when you die).

This book is topical – it looks at a city where drone technology is common place. Today drones are part of our lives from the military to enforcement to entertainment. Not just outside our windows – everywhere we live, eat, shop and the many forms they take.

Imagine a city with cameras on every corner, monitoring your every move. A world where no crime goes unpunished, no criminal can escape. No place you can hide.

I live in the safest city in the world . . . until I tried to leave it.

Excerpt One:
Big
mistake
. Its
circuits fired and it spiraled limply to the ground. Its legs kicked
a few times and then its eye went dark. Two enemies down in as many
seconds. There was hope for me yet. I looked over at the limp form of
the officer.
Why
doesn’t your drone,” I pointed to the half man half machine
floating silently, “pick up your partner? He could be dead if he
doesn’t get any medical attention,” I said. The smaller officer
glared at me but it took his attention away from the useless radio.
Drones
have to be given direction. They can’t think on their own,” he
answered defensively.
Well,
your hawk just thought on its own.” I indicated the smoking
circuits on the ground. One of its feet stirred slightly.
They
have some artificial intelligence, with an innate response to
investigate questionable activities.”
Curiosity
got it killed,” I replied sarcastically.
Looks
like that is going around,” he answered. His intent was not lost on
me. His radio sparked to life.
All
units to main level. Multiple explosions throughout city. All drones
to staging area for assignment. Situation critical.” The remaining
hawk drones flew out down the hall, having received their assignment.
They went into a vent and must have flown up to the surface. The
man-sized drone began to move off when the officer placed his hand on
its shoulder.
Stay
with us,” he commanded. The drone remained in place. I wondered how
it decided what commands to listen to and what commands to ignore. We
turned to the left, away from the elevator and towards a set of
stairs. The officer tried to pull open the door and immediately
pulled back.
It’s
hot,” he said to no one in particular and motioned to the drone to
go first. The machine reached with its metal hand and pulled the door
handle forward. A great rush of heat burst towards us as the fresh
air fed the flame. The drone expelled a white foam at the fire,
extinguishing it in seconds. Blue smoke replaced the fire and my
throat tightened. The officer opened up the side of the drone and
pulled out two oxygen masks.
Take
it.” He motioned to me. I coughed and slipped it over my mouth. We
climbed the stairs, where the sickly smoke made visibility difficult.
There were several minutes of climbing before we reached the ground
level, one floor higher than where I was held captive. We opened the
door to a courtyard and I surveyed the city. I felt sick. There were
fires, a huge crater in a street and people were streaming into the
park.
What
happened while I was captured? How could the safest city in the world
turn to this?
