‘Are you telling us,’ said John, finding it hard to control himself, ‘that you have a brother out there, flying around in a homemade spacecraft tied together with bits of wire mesh and tape, and these all powerful aliens can’t harm him in any way?’

About James Field

I was born in Essex, England, in 1951.

My early days of work as an engineer led me to Norway where I met my future wife Kari. She moved to England where we married and raised our two daughters. We moved back to Norway in 1985.

My wife and I now live far in the north, well within the Arctic Circle, in the land of the midnight sun. Life here is slow and comfortable, blessed by unspoilt nature and its magnificent moods.

Being creative in the written form gives me vast pleasure. I hope, dear reader, you will take a break from your world and lose yourself in one of mine.

Wacky science fiction where two young men build a space ship and end up saving earth from aliens which look like praying mantis.

The world is going through a dramatic climate change - the clouds and life giving rain have disappeared. Can two young brothers, Trevor and Russell, save the world?

The storyline is very well developed and contains many ingenious ideas, but some of the characters didn’t ring true and some of the writing could have been tighter.

If you enjoy sci-fi (such as Battlestar Galactica) you’ll enjoy this book.

A great read and would highly recommend for a holiday as it is a real page turner and difficult to put down, this book has reignited my interest in reading.
Not read many science fiction books before, but I did enjoy this and looking forward to many more follow ups from the Cloud Brothers.

This is a well-written book, which drew my attention from the start and held it throughout. The characters are well rounded and the descriptions are fantastic. A pleasant combination of action scenes and slower scenes of less activity keep the plot flowing smoothly, and there's just enough scientific information to make it clear you're reading a sci-fi novel without you feeling like you're being bombarded with facts from a textbook. I would highly recommend this book to all fans of science fiction novels, or those looking to try out the genre.

I remember reading science fiction when I was a teenager and falling in love it. I couldn't get enough. James Field writes science fiction the way it is supposed to be written.
The pages are filled with technological wonders and fantastical alien life forms. I was snagged, hook, line and sinker by the first sentence.
"Within the next few seconds Trevor will either experience a titanic swell of satisfaction - or die a gruesome death."
Did it hook you? On to the story.
The cloud machine may look like a giant egg but it is a technological marvel. Want to go deep underwater, it will take you. Feeling like a little trip into outerspace, climb aboard. Trevors space craft is virtually indestructable and can go anywhere.
Trevor Cloud, the more serious of the brothers, is a physics genius with an amazing idea. Build a travel machine and explore outerspace.
Russell, the younger sibling, is a martial arts master and rabble rouser with special meditative abilities and visions. These visions will be needed if they are to survive what is coming.
While traveling in space they discover that it is crowded with aliens and not all of them are friendly. One, in particular, wants our resources.
Add together aliens, the end of the world, heroes and a couple of bumbling thugs, stir vigorously and you have all the ingredients for a great science fiction adventure. This author sure can cook.

Review by: Miriam Marchi on Feb. 03, 2012 : (no rating)
I am probably not the target audience for this book, but I found it engaging, interesting and funny. It is a sci-fi adventure with a good pace to keep you interested, with well developed characters and easy to follow plot.

It does not immerse you in technical jargon and although the situation is quite fantastic, you find yourself believing and enjoying the adventure.

Review by: Helen Ewers on Jan. 17, 2012 : star star star star star
An exciting book from start to finish with an ingenious storyline. I'm not a fan of extreme science fiction, but this was written in an accessible and understandable way; to understand the "science" part was not necessary to enjoy the story.
There were flashes of humour which I enjoyed too, and hope this humour continues in follow-up books (of which the ending hints).
I think it's aimed at teenagers, but I would also recommend it to adults.
