Read Stealthy Steps (Nanostealth #1) Online Free - My name is Gemma Keyes.Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable-so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven't exactly noticed that I've disappeared. Vanished. Oh, it's much more complicated than it sounds. And let me tell you, "invisibility comes with its own set of problems."
I should tell you about Dr. Samuel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I'll be candid with you: "He's supposed to be dead." Well, he's "not." (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial "six feet under," he's subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque.
"I need to show you what I'm protecting here, Gemma," he insisted.
I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. It reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this "thing" was "flowing and forming" "in midair."
"Do you see them?" Dr. Bickel asked.
"Them?" I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned "o" as the silver haze resolved into blue letters.
H E L L O
Dr. Bickel hadn't pressed any buttons. Hadn't said anything to them. Hadn't gestured.
He grinned. "Ah. They've noticed you. They know they haven't seen you before."
"Well, I wish they "wouldn't" notice me!"
And I need to warn you about General Cushing. The rank and name likely conjure images of a lean but muscled old soldier, posture rigid, face cemented in unyielding lines, iron-gray hair cut high and tight.
"Let me disabuse you of that impression."
General Imogene Cushing is short and a tiny bit plump. "She" wears her silvered hair in an elegant braid knotted at the nape of her neck, and she knows how to smile sweetly.
"With the deadliest of sharks.."
You wouldn't suspect a two-star general, "an Air Force O-8," of being a traitor, would you?

Wow! This book blew me away! The narrator's voice was so powerful and compelling, that even though the structure was atypical, it definitely worked for this story! The characters, major and minor, are thoughtfully portrayed, and the science is so well-described that it totally believable. The plo...

Very slow, interesting, if one skips several pages of extraneous information. 3.5 stars

This review is going to contain a ton of spoilers (in case you couldn't tell by the fact that it was hidden because it contained spoilers). You've been warned.
Okay, so the story starts out right smack dab in the middle of some pretty intense goings on. I don't usually appreciate that bec...

That's the sound of me realizing that I don't have enough Amazon gift card money to purchase the sequel to this book.
This must be remedied.
I need it.

I won't dock this one points for horrible science, or overbearing "stop the storyline for a few pages" preaching, or for a few unrealistic characters. It's a decent enough story.
It's odd the way most everyone is like monotone voice "oh, hey, invisible, wow, so now what?" - seriously?
I'm not convi...

A great story containing occasional flashes of Christian faith—but these were appropriate to their context and not overdone (writing as a Christian myself).
I wasn't too fond of the "Dear Reader" approach in the beginning, but that faded to the background as the story picked up and became increasi...

A surprisingly good read
I normally do not read this genre but it was a free book so I thought I would give it a try. I was amazed that it held my interest. I really liked the style of writing and someone did a great job of editing. It was intriguing and gave a real picture of God with no preachin...
