Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Rippler (The Ripple Series, #1)Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can’t control it, and it’s getting worse. Afraid of becoming a lab-rat, Sam keeps her ability secret, until fellow runner Will Baker sees her vanish into thin air.

Will promises secrecy and help, and Sam begins to fall in love. Together, the two discover there are worse things than being a scientific curiosity. Someone’s been killing people who possess Sam's gene. A mysterious man from France sends letters that offer hope for safety, but also reveal a sinister connection with Nazi experiments.

 The more time Sam spends with Will, the less she can imagine life without him. When Sam uncovers secrets from her past, she must choose between keeping Will in her life or keeping Will safe.

I Give This Book: 5 Stars

My Thoughts:
'Rippler' was such an incredible story! I was able to read this book very quickly. This is the first fantasy novel that I have ever read and I didn't realize until I read this book, how entertaining fantasy novels can be. I will definitely be reading more of them in the future.

Sam Ruiz just learned that she is a Rippler, a person who can become invisible, and she learns that someone wants her, and all others like her, dead. This made the story very suspenseful, but the story also had it's light-hearted moments.

At first, I found the excerpts from Girard L'Inferne's journal a bit confusing, but towards the end of the book, they began to make sense.

'Rippler' was a wonderful book, I completely enjoyed it. The ending didn't cover all the things that were brought up in the story. So I can't wait to read the next book, because I just have to know what happens next. Even though this book is written for a young adult audience, I think that adults would find it enjoyable as well - I know I did. I especially recommend it to those who enjoy fantasy novels.
