The Rippler series isn't space travel but I consider it to be sci-fi rather than fantasy as the condition that causes one to ripple into invisibility is caused by a certain gene, as I understand it. Scientists discover these genes and work with a multitude of medications to control the side effects and or the people that are able to vanish. As in all groups of people there are good scientists and bad/evil scientists. The results push the main characters and plot of this series.
What I don't yet do like about this series is that even though you have the oldies but goodies from former books, each book or so introduces a new point of view. The reason I like it is because you can travel to new places and see things you might not have had Ms. Swanson kept the same main character for all the adventures. I like getting to know characters in their depth so that is why I don't like a new character every time. I know, I'm hard to please. :-)
At any rate, what I am left with is a case of wonderment. What if one could go invisible, hide in walls or in plain sight? What if one could read another's thoughts? And how fun would it be to hitch a ride in an airplane anywhere in the world by hiding in the wall? And not only can you be invisible, but you can fly! Or you can take a dip in the ocean with a school of dolphins and not get wet or cold. These are just a few adventures the main characters have in this series.
I'd say try either the Rippler series or the Saving Mars series if you want to have some fun.
The story gets off to a bit of a slow start but does become interesting- we get to learn more about Martina as well as Fritz, Hansel, and Georg, and we still see our old favorites from the preceding four books. Like the previous book, the character who is the main focus of the story has a resolution to her story arc (and romance!), but the antagonists have not all been "dealt with" and thus there may be more story to be told in this series (I hope!).
One thing that bothered me wasn't the change in format, as I can understand why it was needed for this story, but there were a couple of sentences that shifted from third person to second person to express an emotion, and I found it a bit distracting. One example is the sentence "She'd been both, but whereas one left you with a bad taste in your mouth and a dent in your conscience, the other left you suffocating, eighty feet under the surface of the ocean, tied to a cement-filled oil drum." However, I still loved the overall story, so I still gave it a five star rating. If you're a fan of this series, you should definitely get this book!
You get to delve deeper into Fritz's character and learn why he poses such a threat to the group, while learning more about the world Helmann set up.
