Not all magicians go to schools of magic.

Adam Binder has the Sight. It’s a power that runs in his bloodline: the ability to see beyond this world and into another, a realm of magic populated by elves, gnomes, and spirits of every kind. But for much of Adam’s life, that power has been a curse, hindering friendships, worrying his backwoods family, and fueling his abusive father’s rage.

Years after his brother, Bobby, had him committed to a psych ward, Adam is ready to come to grips with who he is, to live his life on his terms, to find love, and maybe even use his magic to do some good. Hoping to track down his missing father, Adam follows a trail of cursed artifacts to Denver, only to discover that an ancient and horrifying spirit has taken possession of Bobby’s wife.

It isn’t long before Adam becomes the spirit’s next target. To survive the confrontation, save his sister-in-law, and learn the truth about his father, Adam will have to risk bargaining with very dangerous beings … including his first love.

Praise for this book

"This book is bad-ass! Inventive, exciting, and starring one of the most charming fantasy characters I have ever read about, White Trash Warlock is easily one of my new favorite books. It's addictive, fun and the world-building is perfect. David R. Slayton is definitely an author to watch." - Cale Dietrich

"A novel like this is exactly why the Urban Fantasy genre has staying power. Look at what David R. Slayton did: he turned the usual tropes on their ass, and created an amazing, fresh story. A rural setting; relatable paycheck-to-paycheck characters; strong LGBT+ representation ... It's an exceptional debut. We need more books like this." - K D Edwards

"White Trash Warlock is one helluva ride! Adam Binder is a compelling, deeply relatable protagonist, and the journey he leads us on is dazzling and wonderfully original. What David R. Slayton does with class, sexuality, race, and magic creates an immersive world I didn't want to leave. Kudos!" - Lynn Flewelling

"Edgy and addicting, David R. Slayton's stunning debut will grab hold of you and knock you around just because it can. But before it's all over, it'll leave you breathless and begging for more. His wonderfully creative world is chock full of all manner of supernatural beings and a protagonist you can't help but adore. I'm so impressed! This story is razor sharp so, yes, read it with caution, but read it!" - Darynda Jones

"White Trash Warlock is wild and weird and way too much fun. Dark, funny, and full of devious twists. Highly recommended!" - Jonathan Maberry
