A Ghost with a Heart is the third book in the Immortology series by C.L.R. Draeco and it follows A Ghost in a Bottle. Bram Morrison, the robotics engineer who discovered a way to cheat death helped Torula Jackson to perfect her study of what happens to human consciousness after death. In this third installment in the series, Torula is in a hospital now, but her life isn't safe yet. Meanwhile, Bram and the team at NASA Ames Research Center must face the challenges and dilemmas created by future technology. It is a world of hyperwills, robots, ghosts, Hypercons, Motowns, and hyperloops. But what actually happens when scientists experiment on the soul?

This is a powerful novel with strong moral and ethical themes, a science fiction unlike any other. C.L.R. Draeco's novel is futuristic, a book that examines the consequence of advanced technology and what happens to our humanity when scientific curiosity involves the human soul. The characters are extraordinary, well-sculpted, and elaborately written. The POVs of Torula and Bram dominate the narrative and characters like Ren Fukuda will remain memorable. This imaginative science fiction plunges readers into a world where robots and ghosts share the same spaces with humans, a stunningly drawn world that is exciting to explore. The conflict is phenomenal and it will prompt readers to think about the ethical and legal implications of some scientific developments. This gripping and riveting tale is fast-paced, featuring a twisty plot and characters that are remarkably intriguing. A Ghost with a Heart is a rousing SF that is as transporting as it is thought-provoking.
