When the bomb dropped, everything changed.

Even worse than the mountains of salt where oceans used to be, worse than the armies of mercenaries, worse than HydroSystems Worldwide’s rise to power, was the Cloud.

In the area closest to the bomb’s blast, the very fabric of reality was damaged. The air there can steal a person’s humanity, even as it gives great power. The Cloud i

I've been in a book slump, but then I picked up The Cloud. The 3rd book in The Marian series. It was like going back home, to my family. I missed the crew.

Loved this trilogy, loved these characters! The world Taylor built is bleak but fascinating.

The mechanisms and weapons and tools were very well thought out and ingenious. I highly recommend this trilogy and look forward to reading more from Taylor!

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I haven't read a book in more than a month, and The Cloud was so easy to pick up and get los

“Donovan Johns clearly preferred motivating his people to stick to Plan A by leaving them woefully unprepared for Plan B.” (Kindle Locations 1480-1481).

Ethan’s last hope lies in a three-way soul swap between the water dictator Donovon Johns, Duncan, and Ethan himself. All they have to do is go into the Cloud and get Duncan out of Ethan’s home dimension, use the blood from all three, and get someone to read from a book so powerful it corrupts. Easy, right? The Marian and its crew is committed to

Good triology!!

Good story, enjoyed it thoroughly! Glad Ethan made it home, but too many questions left unanswered! Hope to read more stories about the people he left behind, and the world they live in .
