AmazonMystery Thriller My Review

DARK PRAYERDark Prayer’ starts with a life changing memory, which underpins the story to come. The plot is complex and well paced, the darker elements offset by the unusual romance between Eloise and Jack. The characters cleverly interlink as the as the story progresses and the menace grows as past evils are remembered.

Parkour (free running) is the common ground Jack finds with Eloise, it gives the story an urban edge and facilitates the plot development in a realistic way. An unknown killer pursues Eloise but Jennilee’s abuse as a child by her mother and her friends and the implications of memory engineering and manipulation is haunting. This sinister story examines the links between science and the mystical and makes an absorbing read.

An action thriller with historical and mystical elements, Dark Prayer’s relentless, race against time element, drives the characters and plot in and makes it addictive reading.

I received a copy of the book from Portable Magic Ltd via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
