` Mostert writes with a deft, detailed feminine touch. Where the text does
shine is in Mostert's descriptive power and her research into the arcane
dabblings of ancient magicians. The old house where the strange sisters
live is both menacing and full of sensual promise. This is a promising
novel and Mostert is one to watch for the future.' -- Daily Mail
`Mostert has taken a blend of alchemy, the art of memory, mysticism and
high magic a nd created a pageturner.' -- Time Out
'Compelling and original storytelling: a mesmerizing blend of
alchemy and sexuality. Prepare to be seduced by it.' -- Mo Hayder
Gabriel Blackstone is a cool, hip, thoroughly 21st Century Londoner with an unusual talent. A computer hacker by trade, he is - by inclination - a remote viewer; someone whose unique gifts enable him to 'slam rides' through the thought processes of others. But slamming rides is something he only does with the greatest reluctance - until he is contacted by an ex-lover who begs him to use his gift to find her step-son, last seen months earlier in the company of two sisters. And so Gabriel visits Monk House in Chelsea, a place where time seems to stand still. Its living room is filled with the perfume of roses, African masks line the walls and everywhere - on doors, on walls, on ceilings even - the mysterious coded symbol of cross and circle dominates. As the dog days of summer turn into a cold and hostile winter, Gabriel becomes increasingly bewitched by the house, and by its owners, the beautiful, enigmatic Monk sisters - one of whom is a deadly killer, and who will stop at nothing to protect a terrifying secret that is as old as time itself.Season of the Witch is an extraordinary Gothic thriller that takes on big themes - love, death, alchemy, the power of the human mind to transform and transcend reality - and wraps them into a thriller narrative that will beguile and entrance all who turn its pages.

This is an incredible read, taking you back to the time of John Dee Elizabeth I's Court Astrolger, and even further into arcane and dangerous magic.
A wowser of a read and how it ends is literally mindblowing!
That out of the way the book is crammed with interesting facts and my level of interest was so much stoked, it had me doing my research on the net, will definitely be reading more on the subject matter contained within this book and definitely more from this author. Midway through MY brain was going into sensory overload trying to comprehend it all and it has left me with more questions than answers, regarding the subject matter that is, not the storyline.
The concept of this as a work of fiction is truly original, you will be hooked from the start. I read this book in 2 days and with 3 kids under 3, thats quite an achievement!
