For those who were not able to be here for our Book Brew with the Coffee Crew this month, we featured GBLT as the genre pick of the month. For me, The Slayer’s Apprentice was hands down one of my favorite choices. While there were no steamy sex scenes, there were so much erotic emotions, dark emotions, and thrilling moments this novel was the clear choice for me.

Zathyn Priest is an Australian contemporary and M/M fiction novelist. He also works as a manuscript appraiser for Zacton Press. Zathyn’s novels, The Curtis Reincarnation and The Slayer’s Apprentice, are both available now.  His third novel, Liquid Glass, is currently running in A Turn of the Screw. All titles available through Torquere Press. When not writing fiction Zathyn works with two volunteer support groups dealing with suicide loss and bereavement. He also writes for the group’s newsletters and mental health related articles. Zathyn has recently been approached to write a non-fiction book on behalf of one parent bereaved through the suicide loss of their son.

The Slayer’s Apprentice is a novel that has left me speechless; Mr. Priest has written an exquisite novel with so many elements and emotions that will just squeeze your heart tight. The suspense alone had me walking away, afraid one moment to read more and at the same time aching to turn the page. The sensual attraction between Daniel and Phoenix is so amazing and heartfelt; it left me breathless with so much emotion. When Daniel was portrayed as the only person willing to believe Phoenix, it made me angry at everyone else, made me want to reach into the novel and strangle that darn Detective Somerset myself and berate him for being an incompetent fool. With the brilliant portrayal of Phoenix’s multiple characteristics and the way Daniel dealt with them all, this is a story that has you guessing until the very end and will definitely keep you on your toes. Unquestionably, it is a must read tale for anyone!
