Wahnsinn! Mostert schreibt ganz zu Anfang von dem siedend heißen England im Sommer und ich war direkt gefesselt von ihrer Art, den Leser an selbstverständliche als auch absonderliche Dinge heranzufü...more

Gabriel Blackstone is a hacker and information thief extraordinaire. He lives for the thrill of finding a way past the obstacles standing between him and whatever data he has a buyer willing to pay for. He's also a "remote viewer" meaning he can drop into other people's minds and wander around to see what's going on inside their...more
Sound covoluted? It is, but don't worry. The plodding plot of this novel is almost too easy to follow, and the complications, rather than titilating, tend to be pointless drag.

Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert (Bantam Books)
It's very easy to mistake this book for just another unoriginal gothic sci-fi novel. After all, the synopsis on the book jacket seems to mention concepts that have been explored way too many times before.
That, coupled with the pretty, but rather romanc-y book cover makes this one of those gems that people will pass by simply because this...more
This is one of those books that will stay with you long after you've read it.
I came across this book at my local community centre & i think the cover drew me in. The cover i've got has a crow beak open as if in a cry & a woman mainly her eye & in her eye is a symbol which looks to me like a woman (very hard to explain).
I was drawn in by the prologue it was captivating. The story centre's around Gabriel & he lives in London he steals information for a living, a computer hacker, w...more
...or for those who are genre-picky...!
There are some "sexual" things in it, but seriously guys, don't laugh about it. It takes place in modern England, where Gabriel Blackstone (the main character)is a remote viewer (RV) that can see through people's mind psychically, that needs to solve the murder case of Ro...more
While Gabriel’s ability to see into the future and to ‘hack’ information from other people’s minds is an incredibly cool idea... and the ‘witches’ abilities to access the worlds endless information and even allow people into their ‘memory rooms’ makes th...more
A verdade é que não esperava muito do livro e fui um pouco de "pé atrás" devido principalmente ao facto de a sinopse não me atrair muito.
No geral, trata-se de um livro de nível mediano. A escrita é fluida e em linguagem simples, acessível e de fácil compreensão sem nada qu...more
Using his psychic abilities to sense out the missing Robbie's final thoughts, Gabriel is led into the home of the Monk sisters, who practice witchcraft and of course seduction. Sucked into their simultaneously laid charms, Gabriel must keep his pants...more
It turned out, it was a pretty good choice!
By the 3rd day, I had finished, and it was definitely interesting. I was drawn into the world of hacing, memory and the two strange sisters. I read it so qiuckly because I really did just want to know what happened at the end.
While Gabriel was with the sisters, I just wanted to yell at him to be careful, to get out, but at the same time I desperately wanted to know the outcome.
This story is spooky and fascinating, it goes along at a steady pace and for those who love to read about London, this is perfect. I...more
It's about two sisters who live together in a decrepit old house. They become suspects of a murder and a RV (Remote Viewer: Psychic) is called in to investigate. There were so many new concepts that I'd never even heard of which made this book a fascinating read. At the end of the book the author tells you that some of the more far fetched ideas were actually based on true events.

Overall, I'm giving it four stars because it stuck in my brain. I still think about it sometimes and I read it over...more
