“This drone is in it to win it!”

Drone racing is Carson’s life. Along with his friends Trix and Eddie, they make up the Carsonators, an amateur drone racing team. When his drone is destroyed in a race, it looks like Carson’s racing career is over until a twist of fate provides them with the chance of a lifetime. Carson can’t believe it when he finds a drone in the scrapyard while looking for parts. Little does he know what’s to come from this little drone.

When they enter their new drone Vanta into a top race, strange things begin to happen. Can the Carsonators become drone racing champions and protect Vanta from secret agents?

This book is action-packed and exciting! With its insight into the world of drone racing, Drone Racer is definitely a book for the modern reader. Thrill-seekers will absolutely love this book with its twists and turns around every corner.

I’m hoping that this is just the beginning of Carson and Vanta’s story.
