In a world that has been battered and bruised for decades by endless natural disasters, Niko’s ambitions are seen as reckless and wasteful.
Following in the footsteps of his Silicon Valley heroes, Niko’s startup takes the planet by storm. But what happens when the corporate beast and Niko’s conscience conflict? And what is he hiding?
The Man of Cloud 9 is an intimate science fiction tale of high tech and higher stakes. An all new side of the best-selling author, Adam Dreece.
FIVE STARS - "This one was a real page-turner for me. It gave the reader a view into how technology start-ups struggle to "grow up" along with their founders. It also presented a mystery in the main character, Nick Rafaelo. You get a peak into what he's thinking but you never see his long play until the end of the book. There were also a lot of interesting twists and plenty of great supporting characters." -- Review on Good Reads

Set in the near future, in a world of new start-up businesses and ruthless companies, this book is an intimate and up-close look at the life of Niko Rafaelo, a genius innovator of nano-technology.

It's an interesting and imaginative book, that kept me turning the pages.
Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite Whoa! That's exactly what I thought when I finished the new book by author Adam Dreece, The Man of Cloud 9. This excellent offering of science fiction will keep readers obsessively turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. Taking place seventy years in the future, the story follows brilliant inventor, Niko Rafaelo, as he delves into controversial work in the world of nanobots. This story is full of adventure and thrills, as well as all of the highly inventive and creative details one expects in a great work of sci-fi. Nico's work is considered wasteful at a time when the world is dealing with the aftermath of dozens of devastating natural disasters and, in fact, work with nanobots is banned. But he's determined that what he can do with this technology is worth more than any before him have ever imagined. Will working with microbial cloud-powered bots become the salvation that everyone is looking for, or the end of Nico's career, and more? You'll need to read the book to find out! I loved The Man of Cloud 9. Loved. It. How's that for a review? Well, it's definitely how I felt about this fantastic book. As an ardent reader in the genre of science fiction, I feel that it's getting more and more difficult to find a truly unique voice and story. I definitely found both in this book, and I simply cannot wait to read more from author Adam Dreece as soon as I possibly can. I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys science fiction, or any reader looking for a creative and unique new read in general.
