Book Description

Carrie Thatcher is a tough Imperial counter-terrorism agent. Her mission: pose as a sexy cyber-thief to entrap the notorious rebel Dragonfly, who's planning a heist on the space station Casa de Esperanza - an orbital casino on the fringe of Imperial space.

And this assignment's personal: Dragonfly murdered her closest friend, and she's in no mood to show him mercy. Even getting stuck with the partner from hell--Malachite, her sociopathic ex-lover and the Empire's most dangerous agent--can't dampen her relish for the kill.

With Carrie's expert weapons skills and penchant for cracking codes, insinuating herself into Dragonfly's confidence should be easy. But is he the ruthless killer she was led to believe? Or has her precious Empire deceived her? With Malachite watching her every move, the slightest flinch in loyalty means death.

Carrie is soon racing to uncover an audacious treachery that will shock the Empire to its core ... if she can stay alive for long enough to expose it.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating, tech-rich, psychological thriller sci-fi... but believable characters with multiple human flaws and virtues... the only 'given' in this book is that no one is who you think. Keep your wits sharp, your pistol primed and go for a ride amongst the stars. It will be an adventure!"--Fangbooks

"An exciting action adventure that lovers of science fiction will surely enjoy."--All Things Urban Fantasy

"Everything I wanted it to be. Military sci-fi with a capable, kick-ass heroine and a smart, gorgeous rebel hero."--Sandy Williams, author of THE SHADOW READER

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended sci-fi romance December 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I almost never post book reviews on Amazon (I'm a diehard Goodreads fan), but I'm so freaking excited about Dragonfly by Erica Hayes. It is exactly what I want in my science fiction romance reads. I'm extremely picky when it comes to this genre. I've read so many SFR's that start well but then they just totally lose me, and even the ones that I like are sometimes missing that X factor - the unidentifiable thing that makes me want to run around shoving copies of the book into everyone's arms.

DRAGONFLY had that thing I'm always looking for. It was everything I wanted it to be. Military sci-fi with a capable, kickass heroine, and a smart, gorgeous rebel hero. If you guys like Aren from my SHADOW READER books, you'll love Dragonfly (that's the hero's code name). He has all the sexy smiles and he's very, very good at his job, something that definitely puts him at the top of the hotness scale for me.

So, what is the book about? It's told from first person POV. Carrie is the heroine, and she's basically a black ops operative who finally gets the chance to kill the rebel scum who murdered her fiance. Of course, that rebel scum turns out to be Dragonfly, and he's not what she expected. But she has to put aside his gorgeous looks and his personality that seems to be in conflict with what she's read in his file, and she has to get close to him so that she can figure out what his big, evil plan is.

The book has lots of cool guns and gadgets, and a very awesome anti-theft concept. Erica Hayes didn't skimp on the world building, but it's very easy to follow and understand, even for people like me who did everything possible to avoid science classes in high school and college.

There is something that makes me sad about this book.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: An engaging tale of good bad guys and bad good guys; where the line between what is right and wrong are blurred by one's morals.

Opening Sentence: "What's the emergency?"

The Review:

In the cold and empty expanse of space, things are beginning to heat up in the Imperial's war on terrorism. Axis agent Carrie Thatcher, AKA Aragon, has been assigned to take down one of the more notorious rebels of them all; the infamous Dragonfly. She's all in when it comes to stopping this man from robbing Casa de Esperanza's casino. What seemed to be a simple case of good guy versus bad guy turns complicated when Carrie gets the opportunity to see things from the rebel's point-of-view. It's doesn't help that Dragonfly is a temptation she should avoid at all costs. What will Carrie do when she must decide to either follow orders or follow her heart?

Carrie may be tough on the outside, but she is deeply scarred on the inside. The only man she has ever loved was killed in a terrorist attack orchestrated by Dragonfly. This assignment is a way for her to do what is good for the Empire as well as avenge her lover. But Carrie is not one to ignorantly follow orders. It becomes obvious to her that there is more going on than she was told. Her morals and ethics demand that she take a step back and see the entire situation without prejudice. Her growing attraction to Dragonfly is just one of the reasons she can't seem to take down the rebel before knowing the entire story. When push comes to shove, Carrie must rely on her own intuition to find who are the true good guys and bad guys.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

DRAGONFLY was a difficult book for me to read and review as I tend to like to watch science fiction television and movies more than read them. Much of this has to do with getting lost in all of the technology descriptions with no good way to visualize what I am reading. From a purely plot standpoint, ignoring all of the sci-fi elements, DRAGONFLY was a pretty good story filled with tons of action and intrigue. The world building is vast with lots of interesting sci-fi gadgets and a very cool twisty storyline. I especially liked how the characters became more complex and the lines between good and bad blurred as the story progressed.

Carrie is an engaging, strong, and complex character. I liked her backstory and the fact that she came off as an incredibly clever resourceful woman, which I always admire in a hero/heroine. One thing that frustrated me, however, was the numerous code names Carrie had-which was especially confusing when one character refers to her by two different names in one conversation.

Carrie's love interest, (code name: Dragonfly) was just as complicated as Carrie and a strange enigma as his real motivations and identity are essentially a mystery waiting to be unraveled by Carrie. Given the juicy history between these two characters, I was hoping to learn a little more about him.

Overall, DRAGONFLY it is an exciting action adventure that lovers of science fiction novels will surely appreciate and enjoy. While the science fiction genre in this medium is still a little overwhelming for me, I thought the idea was well executed and the characters intriguing. Check out the reviews linked below for a few SF lovers thoughts on DRAGONFLY.
