I couldn’t put this book down.
It’s a fantastic story, with thoroughly human characters (even if their DNA is not, entirely). I don’t want to say too much, at the risk of spoiling it for others, but it’s an incredible tale. The settings zero in on gorgeous locations across the United States, in the kind of detail that makes you feel that you are there. The development of the characters, Laura and Ben, is beautiful. This is a story of hope and redemption when facing the darkest of possible futures.
If you’re a fan of the “Roswell” tv series, or “Race for Witch Mountain”, like I am, this book is for you. And even if you’re not, A Human Element will take you away from the mundane for the space of time in which you lose yourself in its pages.
