About the Book
Dr. Steven Lucas has a solution to end fear of nuclear war. A cloud. Something he has invented to protect the Nation from nuclear weapons and air raids. The country is very grateful for the doctor’s efforts towards peace and the hopeful end of terrorism across the world. But they are not the only ones aware of the doctor’s invention.
In a place appropriately called “Greeneria” the people live in fear. They have been kidnapped from a life of freedom and made to serve the country’s dictator leader, Lizman. Now that Lizman has gotten word of this invention to end nuclear attacks, he can only think of one way to stop it: kidnap Dr. Lucas.
The Cloud is an intense story of determination, courage, and patriotism that will leave readers with a sense of true adventure and imagination that anything is possible when you have a good heart and friends.
