Book Review: Dark Prayer :by Natasha Mostert

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge, from the Portable Magic LTD, via Netgalley,  for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

And now for a book about the horrors of the mind...

Dark Haunting cover


Synopsis:

Eloise Blake is on the run from a life she can no longer remember. And from a killer who will stop at nothing to protect a secret as old as time. From the award-winning author of SEASON OF THE WITCH comes a thriller about memory, identity and the murderous consequences of a quest gone wrong.


Review:

This is a book, that once you start it, you will NOT be able to put it  down! It is SO riveting! The whole concept of a subject in an amnesia state, who can't come out of it, and has assumed a totally different life than what she had, is riveting. Add in a romance, that is doomed from the beginning, and yo have a gothic tale, that is perfect for All Hallows reading!

This was the first of Natasha's books that I had read, and it won't be the last! I want to go back through her previous books! She has an unique writing style that takes even hard to understand science theories and makes them not only relative, but easy to understand. You will be cheering for Jack and Eloise, and trying to solve the mystery of Jennilee's past, and her mother's death. You may think you know what happened in the past, but Natasha will surprise you and have you rapidly turning the pages to find out what will happen! Hurry and check this one out today!


About the Author:

I live in London and I write dark, psychological thrillers with a strong dash of mysticism and the paranormal. Even though my books deal with subjects that are otherworldly, I like to keep the narrative firmly rooted in reality and my research is rigorous.My interest in mysticism started in early childhood when I was growing up in South Africa. My aia (nanny) was a Zulu woman who introduced me to African legends and the world of the insangoma (witch doctors). For many years I thought she was the coolest person on the planet and tried to emulate her in every way. I remember exasperating my mother by stacking bricks below each corner of the bed to keep out of reach of the tokkelosh - an evil gnome with an enormous head but very short legs! Years later I would write about this in my debut novel, THE MIDNIGHT SIDE.
I now write full-time. This is my sixth novel,I am an avid kickboxer. Future goals include executing a perfect spinning crescent kick and coming face to face with the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe. Visit my website, www.natashamostert.com, and you will find notes on how I plot my books, questions for book clubs and links to YouTube videos. You may also wish to try your hand at one of my games. The SEASON OF THE WITCH Memory Game is based on alchemy and will tax your power of recollection. THE KEEPER Game is martial-arts based and takes the form of a fun personality quiz.
