Review: Dark Prayer




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.

I have always found books by Ms. Mostert to be rather eerie and difficult to categorize in any one genre.  But oh so enjoyable.  DARK PRAYER is no exception 

This is a book that engrossed me from the very beginning with superb characters such as Eloise/Jenilee and Jack who are the second generation in a game of memory that began with their parents.  And whether it is worth the loss of love to remember just who you really are?

 It asks questions about just what would happen if we could control what a person remembers and what they forget.  What would happen if we were able to implant memories in the mind of another.  This is one book where one question being answered leads to another hundred being asked.

I do recommend DARK PRAYER as I very much enjoyed it but don't expect the ending to be wrapped up nicely.  I am left pondering just what is going to happen with the future as our 'real world' work with memories progresses further and further along.
