The Human Element

On the night the meteor struck Coopersville, NY, young Ben became an orphan and Laura was conceived. Their Lives were markedly different. Ben had a horrific childhood and grew to be a damaged adult. Laura's life was idyllic - aside from a few grisly murders and weird "powers". Eventually, they meet fall in love. Both of them struggle with themselves and each other to come to grips with their past, Ben has to forget a history of abuse while Laura deals with being human- Maybe. in addition, many questions needed to be answered- Was it really a meteor that struck the town? Who were Laura's real parents? And finally, who or what is trying to kill Laura? Aided by an Erie "man in black", who claims to have been watching them all of their lives the two are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and make a normal future for both of them. How they do it is, well, interesting.

This story is a genuine stew pot pot of horror, sci-fi, mystery and romance. The author keeps it together and gives a tale intriguing enough to keep you reading to the end. unfortunately, the plot seemed contrived at times and the characters feel one-dimensional. I'll give it 3 stars and recommend it for the over 18 set as there are a few steamy sex scenes.

  1. Julie, thanks so much for taking the time to read A Human Element and provide an honest review! I just finished the sequel, A Hidden Element, which has some new-and old-characters too. This one is much faster paced and all goes down within a week or two.

  2. I will ask Mary and see if she would like to review the book 2
