Very enjoyable. 5 Stars for Audible Edition!
Ben, 9yrs old when his mom and dad were killed by a freak occurrence of a meteorite fell to earth and how it changed him. Sarah, who was giving birth and was vulnerable to the cruelty of the Doctor and nurses who were driven by greed and put little stock in their Hippocratic Oath. Laura, her secret ability and how far she will go to find the killer of her parents. Jim and Scooter. Jim and Laura and Charlie a man who hates everyone and everything with Laura at the top of his list.The line of good or bad is not always clear as in the case of Felix.
A sci-fi thriller/mystery, the plot barrels along from page one. I'm not a fan of books told from several points of view - 2 or 3 is Ok, when the plot is weighted between them - but ELEMENT is not only told from that Laura, whose story this essentially is, and Ben, whose story weaves around hers, and eventually into it, but also that of several lesser characters: the wonderful Jim B., the evil antagonist, evil a's captor, for e.g. But Galanti's writing kept me held, and the switches were credible and refreshing when they happened - I was ready for a new voice each time, and it actually served to hold me in the story rather than distract me.
I won't go into plot - the blurb can do that better anyway! - but this a gritty book, not for the faint-hearted, featuring a cold killer who is after Laura's blood. Galanti, once a navy photographer, weaves in her knowledge of that world with the other main character (and Laura's love interest), Ben. The overarching theme of the book is that out of adversity comes life's gift, an idea which is pivotal to the ending.
The one thing that lets this book down is its poor editing, which is a shame. However, Galanti's writing and plot-weaving is strong enough to withstand the errors which normally I'd find hard to read through. A credit to the author on this thrilling debut which combines sci-fi, horror and romance all in one harrowing ride.
Donna Galanti's riveting tale will capture you from the first page and hold you until the last.
Holy Cow! This book just grabs you and I wasn't expecting that. It's a seriously engrossing tale. A Human Element reminds me, in some ways, of The Watcher by Koontz. Premise isn't anything like the story--this is more sci-fi--but the escalating tension, suspense, and villain of the piece does. The darkness of the villain, what fuels his anger, attacks, and the thread of evil in him is very reminiscent of Koontz style.
It starts with the crash of a meteorite and that event changes the lives of many, but especially the hero, Ben, and heroine, Laura. The hero, Ben knows loss all too well and is closed to love and commitment. His life has been one of reckless abandon. Laura is coping with supernatural skills and is the target of a dark evil wanting to destroy her as it has everything she cares about. Both characters have to come to know and accept whom they really are inside and make changes to be whole. This inner journey, to understand their life, sends both on a quest to find out what REALLY happened the night the meteor fell. Along the way to the crash site they meet up and join forces and making both a target.
There are some great characters in this story. I Loved the mystery created around the man in black. Even the villain is well drawn and three-dimensional and I'll admit the fact I feel some sympathy for his life, made his evil even more chilling. The romance between Ben and Laura is good and ups the ante in the story.
This is a book to read this summer.
