The Inflection Point Series

On the eve of the First World War as the storm clouds loom over Oxford, Nathan Bishop, a man with a keen mind for science, has been forced to take on an electrician’s job, converting the colleges over from gas to electric light. Nathan's long-cherished dream is to one day work on experimental projects that test the boundaries of logic and reason. So when the mysterious Professor Felix Schneider offers him the opportunity of a lifetime, it looks like all his dreams have come true.


However, what’s the secret behind Felix’s research in his private lab, and is it a threat to national security? Everything hints at something incredible, but the truth will be beyond even his wildest expectations and will challenge everything Nathan thought he ever knew about time.


Nathan is about to be given an incredible opportunity that will determine not only the fate of those closest to him but ultimately of the galaxy too. Will he be able to find the courage to fully embrace his dreams, even if they might cost him the lives of himself and his closest friends?

“Get ready, Mulder and Scully, there’s a new alien hunter in town and she’s called Lauren Stelleck. This is what a cracking sci-fi thriller should be like. Earth Song grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go until the last page.” 

Barry J. Hutchison, author of the Space Team series.

Praise & Reviews

"I'm a huge fan of Nick Cook's writing, and Cloud Riders is the book that started it all for me. It's a beautiful piece of science-fiction with characters you really care about and full-on Spielbergian heart. That it turned out to be just the beginning of a huge and involving saga that incorporates Nick Cook's other two fantastic series - FRACTURED LIGHT and EARTH SONG - is just the icing on a truly epic cake."

Kit Kane, author of the Canonball Express series

“Made me fall in love with sci-fi all over again.” 

Alexander Gordon Smith, author of The Fury and the Escape from Furnace series.
