White Trash Warlock by David R Slayton - Blog Tour

Wednesday, February 3, 2021


I'm thrilled to today welcome you to my blog for my stop on the tour for White Trash Warlock by David R Slayton. When I read the blurb of the book I thought it sounded like something I would like to read. I was thrilled to receive a paper copy of the book for review, but all thoughts and opinions remain my own. 

Here's the blurb:

Guthrie was a good place to be from, but it wasn’t a great place to live, not when you were like Adam, in all the ways Adam was like Adam.

Adam Binder hasn’t spoken to his brother in years, not since Bobby had him committed to a psych ward for hearing voices. When a murderous spirit possesses Bobby’s wife and disrupts the perfect life he’s built away from Oklahoma, he’s forced to ask for his little brother’s help. Adam is happy to escape the trailer park and get the chance to say I told you so, but he arrives in Denver to find the local magicians dead.

It isn’t long before Adam is the spirit’s next target. To survive the confrontation, he’ll have to risk bargaining with powers he’d rather avoid, including his first love, the elf who broke his heart.

The Binder brothers don’t realize that they’re unwitting pawns in a game played by immortals. Death herself wants the spirit’s head, and she’s willing to destroy their family to reap it.

And here's what I thought:

I liked the mix of gritty urban and fantasy within the book - I much prefer 'low' fantasy like this than 'high' fantasy where the whole world is different from our own. I like reading about worlds like our which just happen to have magic in them. This book is kind of YA but as Adam is twenty it teeters into New Adult. I personally think it would be fine for any teenage reader from the age of around fifteen. 

I liked Adam; he's been betrayed a lot so he's prickly and distrustful which I liked. I felt like he grew a lot over the course of the book. I didn't like Bobby and was very much on Adam's side! I am certain there'll be at least another book after this as the ending really lent itself to it! 

Thank you to The Write Reads for letting me on this tour. Please stay and click around to read some of my other reviews!

  1. Nice review, Rebecca. I'm not a fan of reading high fantasy either. White Trash Warlock was great and I can't wait to see what happens next. I think this deserves to be a bestseller.
