I have had the honour of reading this novella by Josh prior to its release and with the full disclaimer of professing my deep, abiding affection and worship for Josh’s writing, I wanted to jot down a few praises for this book.
Regardless of said affection, Blood Red Butterfly is a fantastic jump back into the world of Josh’s writing. Having been gone on a self-imposed semi-hiatus, Lanyon returns to us with an exciting, complicated tale of gay men struggling through cultural differences and with loving another man.
The suspense in this novella is tight and the reader is taken on a short, sweet ride through murder and intrigue, culminating with an action sequence most Hollywood films would envy.
Fantastic read. Good pacing. Great characters. Grab the book when it comes out and spend a day with Lanyon. You won’t regret it.
