Rorschach Inkblot Aliens & “Tiny Bubbles”

In Floating Ink, Echo on the Water by James Livingood the alien (called Xenophen and resembling floating ink blots) invasion is in the form of educating the humans to be able to accept and use advanced technology. Insidious floating beasties, as I suspect there is more to come in future editions of the series. Fortunately for mankind a woman named Ruth develops some unexpected and interesting abilities that trigger her curiosity, cause confusion and slowly broaden her understanding. I enjoy this different slant of an alien invasion and appreciated receiving this book in exchange for an honest review.

The beginning of this story is very visual and entertaining. We are introduced to Ruth just prior to the Xenophen invasion, the story opens with, “Ruth was the queen of rats and the trend setter of black soot stains.” And even though I winced a bit at the mention of her cockroach subjects in the next sentence I did snicker.

Narrator Rebekah Amber Clark has a nice range of voices. She definitely got across the variety of emotions that Ruth underwent during this short story. I also enjoyed the mechanical alien voices, perfect.

Definitely an interesting book. I was a bit lost on the reality bubbles but I enjoyed a new take on alien invasion. Looking forward to book 2 and hoping to find the reality bubbles explained. Good narration by Rebekah Amber Clark.
