Review: The Midnight Side by Natasha Mostert

Review: The Midnight Side by Natasha Mostert

The Midnight Side

A phone call from the dead. Lucid dreaming. A ghost manipulating the London stock exchange. And a truly frightening story of love gone wrong.

THE MIDNIGHT SIDE is a chilling tale of a seductive woman who, even from the grave, is able to manipulate events to her satisfaction. A haunting story of obsession and revenge, Natasha Mostert’s novel is an intricate psychological thriller with an ending that will leave you breathless.

I read The Midnight Side before I read Season of the Witch, and I loved both. They both deal with such fascinating topics – The Midnight Side deals with the idea of lucid dreaming, Season of the Witch deals with memory, remote viewing and more. Mostert takes what normally could be an ordinary plot – someone trying to investigate a murderer and turns it into a story that has you glued to your seat and your mind spinning it’s wheels, completely captivated. [The plot I mention was Season of the Witch, but she makes magic of both plots!]

The Midnight Side seems a bit ordinary at first. A woman going to take care of her friend’s estate/house and things after she learns of her death. They had once been very close but not lately. Very soon things get intriguing. Her dead friends – who she grew up with, lucid dreaming where her friend would guide her into a dream of fantasies. Now, her friend is reaching out to her again, except this time it’s not fantastical visions in her dreams, it’s terror.. and she just wants OUT. Will her friend drag her under or will she be able to escape? What happens if she can’t get out of the dream?

You can’t predict where the plot goes. I didn’t see the end coming. I went through The Midnight Side assuming something and then it got turned onto it’s head. I love books like that, they’re so refreshing.

I’m telling you – check Mostert’s books out, especially the two I’ve read. I can’t wait to read more of her books when I have the time! She has that special something that brings the ordinary into the extraordinary. I’ve yet to be disappointed!

    • I think you’d love Natasha Mostert! They really surprised me how good they both were, it was awesome! The Midnight Side and Season of the Witch were PHENOMENAL , I noticed a third book of hers is on NG as a Read Now.. I’m really debating snagging it up mwuaha

  3. Season of the Witch was a brilliant read which I reviewed recently and I’m really pleased to hear that The Midnight Side is as good! I have just downloaded Windwalker and The Midnight Side from Net Galley. Looking forward to reading them.
