Suspense author Donna Galanti poses a terrifying dilemma to readers of her newly released novel, A Hidden Element: "How far would you go to protect, or destroy, your child in the name of love?"
This is the choice that one mother and one father both face separately in Galanti's fast-paced paranormal suspense thriller, A Hidden Element, while posing the question: do genes and environment make a killer? These two parents at odds must decide whether to sacrifice their children before they become monsters - or risk sacrificing their own lives to keep their children alive.

A Hidden Element is a gripping story that will keep you guessing what happens next and wondering if there's a happy ending in sight!

Evil lurks within...
When Caleb Madroc is used against his will as part of his father's plan to breed a secret community and infiltrate society with their unique powers, he vows to save his oppressed people and the two children kept from him. Seven years later, Laura and Ben Fieldstone's son is abducted, and they are forced to trust a madman's son who puts his life on the line to save them all. The enemy's desire to own them -- or destroy them -- leads to a survival showdown. Laura and Ben must risk everything to defeat a new nemesis that wants to rule the world with their son, and Caleb may be their only hope -- if he survives. But must he sacrifice what he most desires to do so?
