Knavery (Ripple #6)Knavery by Cidney Swanson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After being given book 7, the final book in the Ripple series, free for review, I realized I hadn’t read book 6 yet. So, in spite of lack o’ funds, I picked it up as I didn’t want to read yet another book series out of order. This series does build on the book before. And, who knows? I may want to read this series again. Best to own it!

I do love this author, Cidney Swanson, and how she writes. Of course, my favorite of her two series, is Saving Mars. How I wish there were more of these. I understand that it came to a satisfying end, but how many books are out there written by women about space travel that isn’t center on wars or male characters?

Now back to the Ripple series.

Science + trauma = rippling. Rippling is invisibility. At the beginning of the series, we know of just one person who can do this. Sam/Samantha. But now there is a nice little community. But someone we didn’t know before becomes the star of this book. His hero is Loki. What would Loki do? He is an emotionally stunted guy raised on a fat-campgrounds. (By the way, there are no judgments of the overweight teens that are there in this book.) His invisibility has been something he used for tricks on campers and family. He is a sweet guy, but hasn’t been kissed or had relationships with anyone but his family. He’s decided to get a job far from family to see if he can become his own person. I like Skandor Dusselhoff. Yes, it is a stray away from my goal of reading books written by and starring females. But since most of the rest of the series qualifies, this works. Exceptions prove the rule, you know!

I didn’t mean to finish reading it in the wee hours of the morning, but it grabbed me and wouldn’t let me put it away. Then I wanted to start the next book because I couldn’t sleep, still, at 5 AM. But I got tough with myself and turned everything off and tried to sleep. And, okay, it could have been the extra caffeine while hanging out with my daughter having a wonderful day, and not the book. But do you want to take the chance that a book THAT exciting goes unread by you?

Now on to the final book of the series…
