Dark Prayer by Natasha Mostert
If you were to define how you became the person you are today, what would you do? Would you look into your past, seeking events or memories that you feel made you who you are today? What if those memories were stolen from you by misguided scientists? Who or what would you become? Would your core remain, would your personality change? Who would be the REAL you? In Natasha Mostert’s Dark Prayer, Eloise has lost her memory, and has had to learn to fend for herself with the help of an unlikely savior, protector and friend. Livng a life far from the one she grew up in, Eloise has learned to survive on her own, but someone wants to change that. Why would anyone want her dead? Who was she before she became Eloise? What are the flashes she keeps getting? Are they breakthroughs to her past?
When Jack is sent to protect her, of course he must lie and keep his mission a secret. She is the secret to priceless information, but she has no idea. Who used her as a guinea pig? What happens if she remembers her past? Who will she become?
Natasha Mostert’s world is part sci-fi and all mystery. So many questions, so many unknowns, dark and ominous like a shadow floating just out of reach, this journey is one to remember. With rich details and well-developed characters, Ms. Mostert has put fresh meat on the table for dark mystery lovers who like a bit of misguided science on the side.
