A Human Element By Donna Galanti

human element audiobook cover book review


Evil comes in many forms…

One by one, Laura Armstrong’s friends and adoptive family members are being murdered, and despite her unique healing powers, she can do nothing to stop it. The savage killer haunts her dreams, tormenting her with the promise that she is next.

Determined to find the killer, she follows her visions to the site of a crashed meteorite in her hometown. There, she meets Ben Fieldstone, who seeks answers about his parents’ death the night the meteorite struck. In a race to stop a madman, they unravel a frightening secret that binds them together.

But the killer’s desire to destroy Laura face-to-face leads to a showdown that puts Laura and Ben’s emotional relationship and Laura’s pure spirit to the test. With the killer closing in, Laura discovers her destiny is linked to his, and she has two choices-redeem him or kill him. “



A thriller of a Thriller, this book gripped me from the start and kept me engrossed throughout. A ‘page turner’, this book makes you want more the further into it you get – who is the savage killer, what happens to Laura and what is Ben’s involvement… These are but 3 of the many characters all of whom have deep back stories to add to their intrigue. The lives of each become more and more interlinked as the story develops making you ask ‘what happens now?’ at the end of each chapter.

The gripping story is enhanced by glorious narration, initially I questioned whether I could get in to the story as I struggled with the Narrator’s style; however, as the story-line developed I came to realise that he was perfect for the story. Chase Bradley’s intonation and cadence added to the suspense of the story and fit the characters perfectly.

The story spans Laura’s life from her mysterious birth and adoption, through her childhood and adolescent years and into her early adulthood. Throughout her life she is plagued by inexplicable occurrences which appear to have no connection; however, little does she know that every event is linked through a single person and he haunts her dreams, promising to hunt her down.
