Soft Science-Fiction for young adults of all ages.
The wheel was invented in Mesopotamia around the year 3500 bc. George Stephensen designed a steam locomotive called The Rocket in 1829. Henry Ford produced his first experimental car in 1893; and in 1903, at Kitty Hawk, the Wright brothers made their fist successful flight in an aeroplane.
Mankind’s genius for technological advancement never ends. In London’s suburbs, in Trevor’s woods, in a sheltered clearing, two young brothers have built The Cloud - the first ever flying-saucer.
On their maiden trip they soon discover that the stars crawl with aliens, and that many look towards Earth’s vast and untouched energy resources with envy. One species of alien set up a processing factory in Earth’s orbit and begin extracting the very life from our planet. Indifferent to the primitive life forms inhabiting our world, they arrogantly ignore humankind’s feeble attempts to protect themselves.
That is, until the two young brothers from London and two NASA astronauts from America are unintentionally thrown together, and show the aliens what earthlings are truly capable of…
‘Are you telling us,’ said John, finding it hard to control himself, ‘that you have a brother out there, flying around in a home made spacecraft tied together with bits of wire mesh and tape, and that these all powerful aliens can’t harm him in any way?’
