The Darkness Within
Lisa Stone

Guest review

Published By Avon 13/07/2017

I am a huge fan of Cathy Glass who writes under the name of Lisa Stone for this book.

Jacob Wilson a Reverends son, is in need of a heart transplant and when that all important phone call comes his family and girlfriend Eloise are delighted.  The operation appears to go well but his recovery is not what they expect as their hopes of Jacob returning to his former placid good guy life come to an abrupt end when he takes on the temperance and characteristics of the donor Shane.

We are introduced to Shane at the beginning of this book and discover just what an evil nasty piece of work he is. Jacob’s mother Elizabeth is beside herself so she  decides to do some research on the internet and discovers the fascinating subject of Cellular Memory in transplants and although there isn’t overwhelming proof that this even exists, she is certain that this is what is responsible for turning her son into a drug taking, abusive dangerous young man.

I got into this story quickly and found the subject of a heart transplant interesting but I was a little disappointed with the rushed ending.

I am still glad that I read this book and would recommend it to others.  I give it a 4 Star rating.
