Review - Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert

Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert: Gabriel Blackstone is an unscrupulous hacker and unrepentant "remote viewer" who can't resist his ex-lover's request to look into her stepson's disappearance. His investigation leads him to a rambling Victorian home that bewitches him-as do its beautiful, enigmatic owners, the Monk sisters. The pair are solar witches, obsessed with alchemy and the Art of Memory, a practice invented by the ancient Greeks.
With his uneasy suspicion that one of the sisters is a killer, Gabriel sets out to determine which. But the more entangled in the case he becomes, the more deeply he is drawn into the sisters' entrancing world-losing hold of reality even as he falls into mortal danger...

- This book was not the easiest book to get hooked on. But once I was hooked....well, I was hooked. I had to know how it ended. I feel like the main concept of the book was a bit mind blowing, it is a quick read and it's not your typical witch type of book. It is set in modern times which makes it a bit interesting for me in the fact that there are probably people out there who on the outside act like the witches in this book act. I'm not saying that they have powers just that the behavior could potentially be much the same.-
