In her award-winning
novel, Mostert blends alchemy, the art of memory, high magic and murder
to create a highly original psychological thriller.
Blackstone is a cool, hip, thoroughly twenty-first century Londoner with
an unusual talent. A computer hacker by trade, he is also a remote
viewer: able to 'slam a ride' through the minds of others.
But he uses his gift only reluctantly ― until he is contacted by an
ex-lover who begs him to find her step-son, last seen months earlier in
the company of two sisters.
And so Gabriel visits Monk House,
a place where time seems to stand still, and where the rooms are
dominated by the coded symbol of a cross and circle.
winter closes in, Gabriel becomes increasingly bewitched by the house,
and by its owners, the beautiful and mysterious Monk sisters. But even
as he falls in love, he knows that one of them is a killer.
Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert
My Rating: 5 Stars
Be prepared to be seduced into leaving reality for Natasha Mostert’s Season of the Witch. When a high end information thief (hacker) is asked to use his “remote viewing” abilities to find the missing son of a dying millionaire, no one knew what Gabriel would discover, or “see” or the darkness that would threaten to surround them all.
Natasha Mostert tells a bewitching tale where science, memory and magic entwine and entangle with other mystical practices and obsessions. Is it possible one of the mysterious Monk twins who ooze sensuality and lust knows the fate of the young man?
They say the imagination is a powerful aphrodisiac and the mental conjuring through the sensual prose of Natasha Mostert is far more potent through allusion than the often coarse in-your-face descriptions of other tales. Ms. Mostert does not write for those who want a fast and furious read, she writes for those who wish to gently land in the midst of a tale that defies genre.
I received a review copy from Portable Magic Ltd in exchange for my honest review.
