Niko and the cast of supporting characters are well fleshed out and the relationships between them are well written and believable.
It's an interesting and imaginative book, that kept me turning the pages.
I received an ARC of The Man of Cloud 9 from Adam.
Niko Rafaelo - a brilliant and driven inventor- is 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 he hiding?
