Read full description of the books Dark Prayer:I got this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. The book sounded intriguing to me since it had to do with memories. I find that topic rather interesting so I was really happy to discover this book for review.
In this book we have Eloise Blake who is running from a life she has no idea existed previously due to memory loss linked to dissociative fugue state. Jack is then contacted by his somewhat overly arrogant father requesting him to help Daniel out with his ward who happens to be Eloise. He is asked to help her to rediscover a past life while at the same time discovers that Eloise's life is at risk from some other force.
I really enjoyed this story a lot. I liked the surprise, the excitement and the mystery that surrounded this story along with the lust and greed of outside influences for the sake of science. I found the premise of this story intriguing and found myself trying to imagine a life such as this. Living a completely different life while having lived a different life in the past without even being aware of it. It all came together so well. It is such an engaging story, very thought provoking as well.
I really liked Eloise and Jack a lot. Those were my favorite characters. I loved the trust that was formed between them. As far as the rest of the characters go they were actually pretty cold hearted and cared only for the science aspect of things. I think the characters were all developed nicely, plenty about them to love and hate.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes both science and mystery. Two great elements that came together to tell an amazing story. "One step at a time, but every step forward."
Read information about the author(from website)When my publisher asked me to submit a 200 word biography for their authors' website, I thought about dropping the usual bio platitudes and submitting the following: "Natasha Mostert is a spectacularly brilliant, raven-haired psychic who saw her first ghost at the age of four. She likes to take midnight rides on horseback and practises levitation twice a day. However, upon reflection I didn't think my editor would be too amused by this flight of fancy. So here it is, the official (and much less exciting) Natasha Mostert biography:
Natasha Mostert is South African. She grew up in Pretoria and Johannesburg but currently lives in London with her husband, Frederick. She still keeps an apartment in the university town of Stellenbosch in the Cape province.
She is the author of five novels. Her fourth novel, SEASON OF THE WITCH, is a modern gothic thriller about techgnosis and the Art of Memory and won the Book to Talk About: World Book Day 2009 Award. Film rights were sold to Allotria Productions with Emmy-award winning screenwriter, Andrew Davies, commissioned to write the script. Her fifth novel, THE KEEPER, is a thriller about martial arts, chi and quantum physics. Mostert returned to the subject of memory in her latest novel, DARK PRAYER, which is described by Kirkus Reviews a "brainy, fast-moving thriller" in which "Mostert brings together fascinating strands of biology, psychology and mysticism."
Mostert is a keen kickboxer. Visit her website at www.natashamostert.com to find out more about her involvement with the CPAU Fighting for Peace project, which teaches Afghan women how to box and feel empowered in their lives.
Educated in South Africa and at Columbia University, New York, Mostert majored in modern languages and also holds graduate degrees in Lexicography and Applied Linguistics. She has worked as a teacher in the Department of Afrikaans and Dutch at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and as project coordinator in the publishing department of public television station WNET/Thirteen in New York City. Her political opinion pieces have appeared on the op-ed page of The New York Times, in Newsweek, The Independent and The Times (London).
Future goals include writing poetry, executing a perfect spinning backkick and coming face to face with the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe.
