Ripple - A Novel by Tui Allen

Twenty million years ago, powers of the universe allow an ancient spirit one final chance to achieve a mysterious intellectual purpose, by incarnating it as a dolphin on the planet Azure (Earth.) The spirit is born as Ripple, a vulnerable female with a seeming tendency to insanity. She falls for the scarred fighter-dolphin Cosmo and love inspires her to achieve her purpose.

But before she can communicate her discovery, she must overcome terrific odds among the terrors and tragedies of the ancient oceans. If she can succeed, the universe will change forever, and allow dolphins to profoundly affect the yet-to-evolve human race. Ripple is an inspirational story in the Visionary and Metaphysical Fiction genre. It can also be firmly classed as mind/body/spirit fiction, (MBS) or marine environmental fantasy.

Ripple has attracted high critical acclaim from reviewers around the world and is often favourably compared to Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Originally self-published it has now been picked up by a traditional publisher in Europe who has translated the book and created a hardback edition called "Vlnka."

An "Ancient Mariner" for a new millenium.

  • The story is thrilling, the setting amazing, the reading
    almost a religious experience.

    (Louis Tyrrell, New York author)
  • It is one of the best books I have read in a long, long time,
    and it may have vaulted into my all-time Top Ten list.
    If anyone gives the slightest value to my opinions, I ask
    you to take this book and absorb it, treasure it, make it
    part of you

    (Jonathan Brazee, Bangkok author)
