Review: From Death to Life - a Short Story Prequel to the Recipient by Audrey J. Cole


From Death to Life
a Short Story Prequel to the Recipient
by Audrey J. Cole
Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Crime


Blurb:

Caution: contains spoilers, best read after reading The Recipient
Michael Rhodes becomes the first man in U.S. history to donate his organs after execution. Sergeant Wade McKinnon watches Rhodes take his last breath from the viewing area to the lethal injection chamber, hoping to be able to move on with his life after Rhodes pays the ultimate penalty for his crimes.
Elle’s world is turned upside down when her husband, Brian, suffers a debilitating stroke at the age of thirty-seven. His only chance at living the life he once led is to receive an experimental brain transplant. When she gets the call that donor brain cells are finally available for Brian’s transplant, she rushes him to the hospital hoping for him to return to the man he was before his stroke.



My Review:


Elle’s husband Brian had a stroke at the age of thirty-seven leaving him sitting in a wheel chair unable to do anything but move from his chair to the bed and back again.

The only help for Brian is if he has a brain transplant. Elle is ecstatic when the doctor calls to tell her that they have a brain for Brian. She rushes him to the hospital to receive the transplant and hoping that he makes it through surgery and can finally get his old life back again. Brain receives his brain from a man on death row.

From Death to Life is a short story that gives insight to Brian’s brain surgery and the donor. It is advisable that The Recipient be read first as From Death to Life does contains spoilers.

If you have read The Recipient then From Death to Life is great additional read in to that world. It also makes you stop and think what would it be like to have someone else’s’ brain. I mean are you the same person you were before. Or are you the person the brain belong to before? Is Elle’s husband now, Brian or Michael? Yeah, opens up a whole new world and gives you something to think about.

If you have read The Recipient then I highly recommend From Death to Life.
