    1. Check out my blog to see Reviews of Books and Movies as well as Recipes and DIY projectsA Human Element is written by Donna Galenti and is the first book in the Element Trilogy. The book revolves around 3 main characters, Laura Armstrong an adopted girl who exhibits amazing healing abilities, Ben Fieldstone, a boy whose past links to the site of her birth, and X-10 or Charlie who has a darkness within and has been fueled to anger and an obsession with Laura that has turned to black hatred as he [...]

    2. The impact of a meteorite changed the lives of many people. Sarah was the unfortunate vessel who was impregnated with alien twins. Since this was all covered up Sarah had to deliver the babies with only one doctor and an unwilling nurse at her side. Because of the lack of medical attention Sarah dies after giving birth to her twins. The doctor made an agreement to deliver the baby to an unknown man waiting outside. He kept his agreement and gave him the firstborn, a boy. The second baby, a beaut [...]

    3. With A Human Element by Donna Galanti being her first novel, I can only imagine what is to come!!!! I am very excited to find out. I will definitely be following this author.I have heard so much about A Human Element from my sister, Laura, so when Donna Galanti offered me the book to review, I jumped all over it.I mean, check out that ominous cover. It oozes mystery and danger to me.A Human Element is about man’s inhumanity to man, man’s callous disregard of other’s lives, but also, the le [...]

    4. 3.5 stars I was drawn to the synopsis of A Human Element by Donna Galanti and it's promise of a girl with healing powers and a serial killer who haunts her dreams. Galanti delivered a dark, gritty tale with a science-fiction twist that was both fascinating and disturbing. Three word review: dark, suspenseful and hopeful.The tale begins with a tragic event caused by a meteorite. We then follow the lives of two strangers; Laura Armstrong an adopted woman with the power to heal who is surrounded in [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book and struggled to put it down, this book is truly one of a kind and Galanti’s writing is stunning. I was so impressed with how Galanti covered issues such as rape, depression and death in such a real and gritty way, the events in this book haven’t been sugar-coated and I respect her immensely for this. It was refreshing to really get inside all of the character’s heads so thoroughly. I also loved being able to watch Laura and Ben grow from young children to adulth [...]

    6. I don't know how to describe this book. It was horror, love, loneliness, connectivity, it will toy with your emotions. It kept me in its grip from beginning to end. I wanted more; I felt this book; I wanted everything to be alright yet not; I wanted to know what would become of humanity and inhumanity. Lucky for me, this was book one of a trilogy. Strangely, for whatever odd reason, as I read the wind began to whip around our house, the trees bent half over, thunder rolled and lightning flashed. [...]

    7. Sia McKye OVER COFFEEDonna Galanti writes a gripping debut of supernatural suspense and edge of your seat danger! It will capture you from the first page and hold 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 villa [...]

    8. This self-published author can write! I was drawn in immediately to this story, and had to keep reading to see what happened. She writes in multiple point of view, which is my favorite style of writing, and a type of writing that few authors can do. Ms Galamti does it really, really well.I have only given a 4 star as I think IMHO that the book could benefit from an editor who would look at the "over all" aspect. The story arc, the beginning, middle and end. It is difficult to explain, but there [...]

    9. A Human Element by Donna Galanti By a lake surrounded by mostly empty cabins, a spaceship crashes and the government covers it up, calling it a meteorite. Ben Fieldstone lost his family that night. Sarah, a teen runaway, wouldn’t know just how affected she was by this event until 9 months later when she gave birth. A mysterious man in black from the government was there to whisk away the unusual child. The doctor and nurse did their best to hide the twin sister, Laura, that was born that night [...]

    10. 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 [...]

    11. A Human Element wrapped me around its finger from the first chapter. Immediately, I was so intrigued by the many layers of characters and their different perspectives. What I really loved about the book was that while you're reading (or listening) there is a clear line that connects each of the characters, but even that clear line has its shadows. It isn't immediately obvious how or when Laura and Ben will connect, but it's obvious that there is a specific night where their timelines intersected [...]

    12. A Human Element is the first book in the Element Trilogy by Donna Galanti. This author is a new one to me, but I am looking forward to reading more of her work. She does not shy away from the dark side of life, instead, writing it with integrity and compassion.This story has an amazing depth to it, full of anger, love, hate, and sorrow. Moving from past to present, from Ben to Laura, we are given a rounded view of the sequence of events that brings these two together, with happiness and sorrow a [...]

    13. Donna Galanti's A Human Element is a fast paced suspense novel with lots of sci-fi and mystery mixed in. Her leading lady, Laura, is likable and easy to root for, and Donna doesn't make it easy for her as she struggles to figure out why everyone she loves is suffering. Our hero is strong as well, suffering through his own unique miseries. With their paths finally cross, the two come together with a lot of heat. And with a truly frightening bad guy, A Human Element is a can't put down read.

    14. This book had the perfect mix of suspense, romance, and sci-fi elements. Laura and Ben seemed great together and I really liked Felix as well. I also felt sad for Charlie in the end. I am happy that one of my family members recommended this book to me and I look forward to the next one in this series.

    15. If Dean Koontz scares you, get ready to be terrified by Donna Galanti. A Human Element will take you on a crazy journey into the unexpected where you can't figure out who the villain is. Laura Armstrong is a protagonist you can cheer for, be scared for and you won't be able to but the book down. I can't wait to read A Hidden Element.

    16. A human element breaking the inhumane upbringing of the antagonistNarrationThe story is written with a detached observer telling the story. It is third-person narration.SettingThe story is set in present day US, mainly in a remote mountain village that saw an unusual natural phenomenon calling in the government agencies.The location is close knit to the main characters, and the individual’s roots and life paths prepare them for their challenges.

    18. This story was just as weird as I thought it was going to be, maybe even weirder! The plot was very creative, interesting and engaging. The characters are well developed, and their was a lot of thriller and mystery aspects that I loved! The story is told in third person from a few different POV's, we start when Ben is a small child on vacation with his family just before 1980, and the birth of a rather strange child the story jumps from there through the years are these kids grow up and develop [...]

    19. I chose to listen to this audiobook after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.Several lives are intertwined in this Sci Fi story and the author does a good job of weaving those lives together as time goes on.As a young boy, Ben witnesses a "meteor" demolish his home with his parents in it and is suddenly an orphan. Nine months later, twins are born to a young woman. One is deformed and horrific looking and is whisked away by the government. The o [...]

    20. A story involving the half-alien/half-human twins that were separated at birth living two very different lives; one raised as a normal human, the other a science experiment. The story line was unique with interesting characters and events. There was a lot of action and suspense, which was what kept me reading. I found myself skipping over the sex scenes, which there were a few too many of for my liking, as they were very graphic and steamy. I’m not a big fan of prologues (most are way over wri [...]

    21. Rate: 3.5Here we go…I am not an avid fan of sci-fi. Although I have read a couple of books that I can count on my ten fingers since I started reading. However,Human Elementhad me hooked. It was as if I was running hard on the field – eager to find what is waiting for me on the finish line. It was exhilarating ride from start to finish. The story started in Coopersville Lake in the summer of 1979, where Ben who was then 9 years old and his parents were enjoying their summer vacation. Ben ran [...]

    22. First, a disclaimer: I don't generally read paranormal fiction so I don't have much in my head against which I can compare this. I've followed Donna Galanti's writing blogs for a few years and I've always found her to be very thoughtful and insightful, so I was intrigued to see how her thoughts about the craft played out in her fiction. So, caveat lector: If you are a fan of the paranormal my three-star rating may seem unreasonably parsimonious; someone more familiar with this genre might well g [...]

    23. DISCLAIMER - I received a copy of this book from Goddess Fish Promotions in exchange for an honest review. I do not know Donna personally.The Human Element is beyond all else a good story. It's original in concept and approach and had me invested in the story from the very beginning. I love the way the back stories were fleshed out and developed, creating a long timeline of suspense. Galanti has done a great job weaving together lit fic/horror/romance/suspense and fantasy. I read it in two days, [...]

    24. Review originally posted on my blog Dive Under the CoverI really enjoyed this book. I am finding that I am really liking a lot of the new authors I have been come across or been contacted by since this blog started getting out there a bit more. For all the tons of mediocre small or self published books out there there are a handful (likely many more!) that are really, really good. I love that I am able to read these books that I probably never would have come across if I hadn't started this bl [...]

    25. Eleven-year-old Ben Fieldstone became a lost soul the night he ran away from his home in the Catskill Mountains—just in time to witness a glowing green meteorite crash into his parents’ cabin and decimate the surrounding area. Months later, a runaway known only as Sarah dies while giving birth to an abnormally large and grotesque boy during a violent storm. Paid by the US government, doctor and nurse hand the child over to a mysterious man in black. However, the doctor is surprised to learn [...]

    26. In the summer of 1979, in the Catskills Mountains of New York, a meteorite crashed into a lakeside community of cabins and forever changed the life of nine-year-old Ben Fieldstone. In May of 1980, a runaway girl gives birth to twins: a deformed boy, who was given to a mysterious man in black with bright green eyes; and a normal girl, who is adopted to a childless farm couple, and is named Laura Armstrong.

    28. Today I’m reviewing Donna Galanti's upcoming debut novel, A HUMAN ELEMENT. Donna must have picked up on my weakness for Dean Koontz, because A HUMAN ELEMENT echoes the bestselling author in terms of creativity, the supernatural and overall dark allure. Add in a little paranormal romance and you've got one delicious literary paranormal mashup.A HUMAN ELEMENT starts off with a bang, literally. To the world, a meteorite has crashed near Coopersville's lake located in a remote region in New York s [...]

    29. Absolutely one of my favorite books in a long while. Parananormal suspense- what a genre! This book has it all, and Galanti is a master story teller. The story begins with a young Ben experiencing what appears to me a meteorite hit a small lakeside community, forever changing his life. Nine months after that fateful night, Laura is born. Laura's life is one of loss; it seems every time she gets close to someone, they wind up dead, beginning with her mother. Years later, we follow Ben, as he retr [...]
