Left behind after the military evacuation and separated from their families, the people of Storm Lake must decide what to do. Food has spoiled; technology stopped working and everyday life turned upside down. There are no answers, only questions and tough decisions to be made.
As they search for help in the cornfields of rural Iowa, a deadly game of hunter and prey develops between them and the Swift. The Swift are mysterious and ruthless creatures who hunt to kill. They unexplainably appear after the event and mercilessly dispatch of anyone who they encounter; while Coach Mike, Levi, his pupil, and those left behind must hunt the Swift for sustenance and survival.
Go along this dark and twisted journey with Coach Mike and Levi as they do the unimaginable to survive in this apocalyptic new world, all in hopes of one day reuniting with their families.
About Ricky Dragoni (Des Moines, Iowa Author)
I am originally from Puerto Rico but have spent half of my life in Iowa. I have two wonderful boys to which I dedicate myself to. I coach multiple sports and try to spend as much time as possible with them. Besides family my true passions are writing and cooking.
My favorite authors include Edgar Allan Poe and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I am also a big fan of Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher. From an early age I started writing poetry and short stories. My books are born out of the nightmares of my mind and are then melded with my life experiences. I would describe my books as reality sprinkled with a good magical dose of faerie dust, written Surrealism in other words. I hope my books can be entertaining but also be thought provoking.
