‘DragonFly – the Illustrated Edition’

is the ultimate DragonFly reading experience!




In 1942, an unlikely heroine changes the course of history. On the eve of invasion by the Nazis, twenty-two year old RAF pilot Veronica ‘Ronnie’ Somerset is fighting another battle - winning respect within the stuffy, male-dominated British military. She’s feisty and brash and determined to overcome every obstacle to become Britain’s first female combat pilot.


When Ronnie is re-assigned to Enysfarne, a mysterious Royal Navy base off the coast of Cornwall, fate places her inside the cockpit of the most revolutionary aircraft ever invented. Brilliant engineer, Dr. Nigel Pennbridge has discovered quadra-hydrogen, an element that powers the DragonFly, a remarkable fighter-bomber that carries the hopes of Britain on its blue and silver wings.


Across the English Channel, Reichsführer Bernhardt Morax, Hitler's personal sorcerer prepares his army of Blutskriegers for the invasion of Britain. The Blutskriegers are bio-mechanical warriors created by a Nazi occult science whose dark secrets cross the boundaries of evil.


Both the Kindle and print editions of DragonFly contain illustrations that make the action jump off the page, including character dossiers, historical ‘retrographs’ and fantastic designs of retro-futuristic aircraft.


(Sixty illustrations in the Kindle edition, thirty-three in the print edition).

"DragonFly by Charles A Cornell is an extraordinary novel. The story is extremely entertaining, but it also made me think. It is indeed a truly adventurous tale: I could not put it down and read it in two days! The pace of the story, the superb illustrations, and the style of the author all make this novel a must-read!"

"I want to commend the author for writing a compelling and strong female lead... It’s characters like Ronnie and the courage of authors like Cornell (to write such characters) that will help change the face of the sci-fi/fantasy/dystopian genre."
