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. – NetGalley

A Thriller that takes a little long to get to the meat of plot but the story thankfully begins to pick up on speed after the first few chapters. The characters are well-developed, actually too well-developed, which led to the slower beginning. I personally prefer novels that get to the point a lot faster, but after a rocky start, this book became a much more intense ride, that is worth the wait. With the main character in a fugue state, having lost all memory of her past life, and having created a  new identity for herself, the Author managed to make a believable, yet mesmerizing story, with plenty of action.
Dark Prayer is my introduction to  Natasha Mostert, and after this book, I am intrigued to find out more about her work.
