OK! The title’s for SEO. But, Stealthy Redemptive Fiction works well for reality when it’s Vikki Kestell’s Nanostealth series. I’ve read Book 1, Stealthy Steps, or book 2, Stealth Power. Book 3 comes forth June 2. It’s hard to wait.
The Nanostealth Series
Book 1 started a bit slow for me. It’s not that I disliked it. The main character, Gemma, is a bit whiny. That does get old very fast. But it wasn’t long before I was into the characters and the story.
By book 2, I found myself head-long involved. In fact, Vikki did something I haven’t experienced for several decades. She produced in me that old, “That’s really cool! I’d love to be able to do that,” reaction.
I remember the first time that happened, with telepathy, back in the 1960s. Not so much telekinesis as telepathy following close behind teleportation. The Nanostealth series grabbed me in the same way. Wonderful!
But about the title: Stealthy Redemptive Fiction works well for reality
As a result, Vikki gets a Redemptive Fiction award for Stealth Power. It’s always tricky doing this with a scifi-fantasy world. But she handles it well. The suspension of dis-belief comes quickly.
Vikki even moved me past my dislike for Gemma into genuine affection. It’s a really good story.
No spoilers allowed. So, adios. Though I will say it was wonderful being back in New Mexico after living there from 1980 to 2005.
