Book Review: Dark Prayer by Natasha Mostert – An Action-Packed Mystery With Intriguing Characters
Book Title: Dark Prayer
Author: Natasha Mostert

For thrillers and books in the suspense category, I personally prefer books that get down to the action straight from the beginning. Sadly, Dark Prayer took a little time to warm up to that point. In my opinion, the Author decided to take a long time to develop the characters and their background story with much details – which in itself is fine, but it is what essentially led to the slower beginning, and can be a turn off for some readers.
I did find that it was worth the wait at the end though – the rocky start was forgotten, once the real action began, and from that point forward, I did not want to put Dark Prayer down.
Despite the fact that the Author created the main character in a thankfully not often occurring fugue state, the story seemed believable and mesmerizing. It is easy to root for Eloise Blake (the female lead of this story) because she is a likable character caught in an impossible to escape the situation.
Even considering the bumpy start, I found Dark Prayer a worthy and enjoyable read.
4 out of 5 Stars
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.
