About this ebook

A scientist and a soldier must join forces when combat drones zero in on targets on American soil in this gripping technological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Daniel Suarez.

Linda McKinney studies the social behavior of insects—which leaves her entirely unprepared for the day her research is conscripted to help run an unmanned and automated drone army.

Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into a faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets without human intervention.

Together, McKinney and Odin must slow this advance long enough for the world to recognize its destructive power. But as enigmatic forces press the advantage, and death rains down from above, it may already be too late to save mankind from destruction.

I really enjoyed Daemon and Freedom(tm), for their pacing, and the thorough dive into technology speculation. And I'm happy to say that continues in full in the reading of Kill Decision. From killer ants to pheromones to seventy two hour batteries (ok, the 72 hr batteries are almost as implausible as the giant super-powered Merritt), Daniel Suarez explores the geopolitical, technological and moral implications of an autonomous military in the hands of them that can afford it.

I just stumbled across Daniel Suarez about 3 months ago after a friend recommended Daemon. It took me a few weeks to read the entire book, as I was just casually reading it. By the time I finished the book I was so wowed, that I immediately purchased Freedom from the Play Store so I could read it. I finished it in 2 days. Because I bought a digital copy, I went to the bookstore to find a paperback copy, and found Kill Decision. It was a great book, and had a lot of really unique and technological/philosophical ideas of where the world is heading, but in the form of an edge-of-your-seat novel. This book was not nearly as 'techy' as Daemon or Freedom, which may be why I didn't I enjoy it as much, but I would still recommend this to anyone who was looking for a good read.

Loved this book a lot. I couldn't put this book down! My only complaint was that it was a little slow at times and given the excitement and mystery half way through the book, the ending could have been a little less ant-climactic. Nonetheless, very worthy of 4/5 stars. Will definitely go read D. Suarez's other books.
