CLOUD CITY

After discovering the richest citizens of Earth are abandoning the planet for a secret floating city above Venus, a young astronaut-in-training must find a way to save the Earth with the help of an adventurous young woman

Ever since Leeland Starr was a boy, he’s heard rumours that the richest citizens of Earth travel to an idyllic floating city located high above Venus. Now a young astronaut-in-training, Leeland grows more curious about the existence of this mythical paradise. After being turned down for a mission to Mars, Leeland sneaks onboard a secret airship headed for Venus and discovers Cloud City is real, and as magnificent as he always believed it would be. Forced to hide amongst the elite citizens of Cloud City, Leeland is helped by a beautiful, adventurous young citizen named Laysha Calasaor. Born in Cloud City, Laysha yearns to visit Leeland’s home planet and harbors him from the armed guards patrolling the city. When Leeland learns that he is wanted by the powerful leader of Cloud City, he must find a way to escape and warn his home planet before the elite abandon Earth for good.
