Niko Rafaelo is a brilliant and driven inventor, determined to flip the late 21st century on its head with a new take on a banned technology, nanobots.

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 his ultimate goal?

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new genre from Adam Dreece! In The Man of Cloud 9, his first science-fiction novel for adults, Adam Dreece has created an interesting and unusual homage to Steve Jobs.  Though decidedly his own character, Niko Raphaelo reminds readers, even those who know little of science fiction or the history of technology, of the compelling and maddening entrepreneur.   After a series of natural disasters brought on by technology, innovation and invention have been outlawed, but Niko Raphaelo is determined to push against that.  He successfully introduces nanotechnology in the form a personal cloud that controls all aspects of one’s life.  But this is simply the background for what is more a biography of the fictional, enigmatic Niko as he tries to balance controlling the explosive growth of his company, his personal drive for further innovation, and his relationships with those few people who thread through his personal life.   While I do wish a couple characters and their motives had been fleshed out more fully, the fact that they were not is in a way another reflection of Niko; a man so driven he lives in his own world where all others are mere secondary players — the title of this book is very well chosen.   Adam Dreece continues to entertain and provoke his readers even as he takes on another genre.
