Another great book in the Ripple series, I think this is my second favorite book in the series (with the first one being my favorite).  If you’ve been enjoying the series so far then you’ll really like this one. It's book 5, so it's hard to talk about what the book is about without giving away the last few books, you REALLY need to read the others!  (Some of the other reviews give more away, but I'm not that guy!) It's our great cast of characters continuing on with their lives, literally rebuilding parts of them.  While other things in motion (from earlier in the series) are still going on.   If you liked the earlier books (and you must have or you wouldn't be here, right?) then you'll love this one. The cover art is beautiful and (in this case) you can judge a book by it's cover!!!

I love all of Cidney Swanson's books, and this one is no disappointment. Besides being a fantastic, page-turning science fiction story, there is good material for discussion here, as this book in particular clearly shows the consequences that come when humans try to play God, Chilling and suspenseful and thought-provoking with the tiniest bit of steam.

Ripple- a small wave or series of waves on the surface of water. Chameleon- a small, slow-moving lizard with a highly developed ability to change color. Unfurled- to make or become spread out from a rolled or folded state, Visible- able to be seen. Immutable- unchanging over time or unable to be changed. I first discovered the Ripple series when I was in 8th grade, about 2012. It was standardised test week, I was stressed, and I needed a book to read. So I doped around on Amazon, and found this book called 'Rippler', and I thought 'Might as well give it a try.' I wasn't a week later I had finished the third, and, thinking that was the end to the series, was satisfied.  But Cidney Swanson wasn't finished, yet.  This past March, I was screwing around on Amazon (what I do best) and discovered a fourth Ripple novel, this time from the point of view of Gwyn. It, too, was lovely. (Need I mention the hilarity of Gwyn Li or the attractive storyteller Chrétien?) And now Cidney Swanson has graced the world with another novel in the Rippleverse: Immutable.  First of all, I would like to acknowledge the gorgeous cover art done by Stephanie Mooney. (Ohmysweetgoodness it's so pretty!!!) And now, on to the actual book reviewing. (Will try to keep spoilers out, but be warned.) After the ending of Visible, I was left craving more of the story. The ending was fantastic, but there were so many things left to wonder. The Rippler journey had another chapter in its tale. Rippler, Chameleon, and Unfurl were told by Sam. Visible was told through the eyes of Gwyn. Immutable takes on a third person perspective, which took a few chapters to get used to, but, surprisingly, worked for the story.  Immutable sees the addition of new characters, but the inclusion of old ones. The story, for the most part, focuses around Martina, a member of the Angel Corps. She what's her own (very interesting) storyline, but slowly all the pieces- Sam, Gwyn, Martina, Fritz, and Pfeffer- line up. It was really interesting to learn about the lifestyle of the Angel Corps before they were 'ready for their intended purpose'. (Helmann was a much worse villain than we ever expected.) As with any of the Rippler novels, I believe my vocabulary added a few words. I was sent looking for a dictionary every few chapters, to look up words like 'fractious', 'cadre', 'fisticuffs', 'repose', 'redolent', and 'acetaminophen'. That doesn't even begin to cover all the French phrases that made me run to Google translate.  The overall writing quality was very good, the plot was excellent and the characters mostly realistic. (If you don't count the whole 'turning invisible' thing, or all the medications, and you ignore the fact that teenagers use such advances vocabulary words that you have to go look up.) The romance and longing bit could have been less (ohmysweetgoodness, Martina! Stop teasing us about this Matteo person and get to the point!), but it was a great story. An ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) was provided by the author for the purpose of this review.
