SkyLine: The Dragon Commander by Kennedy King is a riveting sci-fi story with a setting in the future, a world transformed by technology in 2350. It is an age when people are already familiar with AI nanotech police officers and where life vacillates between a dying Earth and Mars. Against this backdrop, an entire city is massacred by a police department, badly influenced by the AI. Major General Christopher Droan finds himself in a very delicate position, and with his well-trained, highly skilled team, he finds himself in the last place he wanted to be; dealing with technology again, an assignment that reminds him of similar events in the past. The attack on Precinct 117 in Shanghai plunges Chris and his team into the clutches of a deadly enemy. And it is just the beginning. Can he curb the threat that grows with every single minute and save the world?
This is one of those books the reader completes and feels like they never had enough. It is well plotted and skillfully written. While the storytelling skills of Kennedy King will entice the reader, it is the relevance of the plot that will have many turning the pages. There is stark realism in the narrative and the author writes about themes that are as timely as they are crucial to the survival of our world. Artificial intelligence is an area of development that grows by the day and it poses a serious threat to humanity.
SkyLine: The Dragon Commander is a visionary work that projects the reader into a future world and makes them see what could await humanity if limits are not clearly defined as to how far humans can allow technology to define their values. The writing is punctuated by strong and interesting dialogues, vivid descriptions, and streams of consciousness that connect readers to characters in powerful ways. SkyLine is fast paced and engaging.
