Review: THE MIDNIGHT SIDE by Natasha Mostert

Review:  THE MIDNIGHT SIDE by Natasha Mostert

THE MIDNIGHT SIDE is deep, spooky, and gratifying. The author seamlessly entertwines the South African backdrop, with its climate, vegetation and wildlife, and its millennia-old spirituality, with contemporaneous London: crowded, busy, urban, and with medieval alchemy, a particular interest--nay, obsession, of the late Alette. Indeed, both Alchemy and African religious belief thrum throughout the novel with an undeniable drumming pulse. This is a deeply psychological story which refuses to give up its secrets too easily, neither to its characters nor to its readers; but readers will close the book breathing a sigh of satisfaction at a story very well done.
