"ANTITHEUS by G.A. Minton is a blend of horror and fantasy, a story that brilliantly handles the all-time conflict between good and evil. G.A. Minton knows perfectly well how to give his readers the creeps and goosebumps. The writing is exceptionally good, highly descriptive, and it captures the pulse of the characters, the wonderful setting that seems to blend beautifully with the theme and the compelling characters. The plot moves like a race and there is no stop or rest for the reader. ANTITHEUS is a masterfully executed story that will entertain fans of horror and stay with them for a long time. Couldn't put down!" - Christian Sia's 5-STAR Review from Readers' Favorite.
"ANTITHEUS by G.A. Minton is part horror, part supernatural thriller-a gripping story that will leave the reader with shivers. I finished this book before realizing I'd even started reading, absorbed in the intense action and the well-crafted, dramatic scenes that touched all sorts of emotions in me. G.A. Minton has a unique signature for descriptive prose and his writing conjures images, scents, and emotions that literally flood the reader's senses. I also enjoyed how he awakens the sense of fear and urgency in his characters, steeping them in very tight situations. The plot is riveting, imagined with unexpected detours. The drama is intense, the characters believable and rock-solid, and the entire piece is mind-blowing. ANTITHEUS is written to read like an irresistible spell for fans of thrillers and realistic tales of horror." - Readers' Favorite 5-STAR Review from Romuald Dzemo.
"Harken back to Stephen King'snow-famous characters who were trapped in a huge hotel with a blizzard ragingoutside (while the demons raged within), and throw in some of the debatesregarding right vs. wrong that Dan Brown focused upon in his now-famous tale,and you will create a mixture from where this incredible book could have beenborn. To say this is simply one of those good vs. evil battles would really notdo this tale justice; it's too well-written. The author has made sure thatevery character has that touch of evil. Minton has made sure no stone was leftunturned."
Quillsays: If you want that great horror story that's intelligent and frightens youto death,this is the book for you! - AmberLignor from Feathered Quill Book Reviews.
"G.A.Minton, award winning author of the book Trisomy XXI, delivers his secondsupernatural horror novel entitled Antitheus. Minton has a crisp and cleanstyle that describes enough of a scene to make it interesting, but he does notspend time on overkill detail. In terms of pacing, I prefer shorter andpowerful novels, so this was right up my alley. I liked the speed with whichthe plot developed, along with the characters. Overall, it is clear that Mintonhas more than just a knack for writing a good story. I honestly cannot giveAntitheus a strict horror label, because it embodies so many differentelements. There is the slasher-film premise, the historical God vs. the devilconfrontation, and a hint of Sherlock Holmes, all thrown together for a veryinteresting read. When it comes down to it, I will recommend Antitheus to thoselooking for a quick and easy read, without having to compromise on quality andstyle. Minton is very good at what he does, so make sure to lock the doorsbefore you start reading!" - Horror Palace Book Review by Damnetha Jules.
"A big fan of horror stories featuring demonic entities, I had to read ANTITHEUS. G.A. Minton doesn't just put his characters in those places that one can only describe as spine-chilling, but adds a freezing blizzard and random earthquakes to present them with even more obstacles. The author also gives readers enough information about each character to connect with them. One of the innkeeper's guests is researching something which offers a Eureka moment, but Minton is a crafty author. A persistent killer demon and a batch of victims with a small chance of escaping make this a worthwhile horror novel!" - Benjamin Ookami's 4-STAR Review from Readers' Favorite.

There is no shortage of gore and violence in this horror story. The graphic detail Minton puts into his storytelling is captivating while being slightly gruesome. It is not overdone, however, which can happen in tales like this. Not a drop of blood is out of place and the murders occur within a carefully crafted plan. This classic whodunit gets a twist while the characters try to flee for their lives. As each murder occurs it is clear that something is lurking in the blizzard and it very much wants to devour them. The infusion of religious content with traditional horror blends nicely. The religious aspects fit the story and they aren’t overdone or excessive.
The story begins strongly; captivating the reader and pulling them in. But there is the addition of a supernatural occurrence that doesn’t fit the story. The book would have been fine without it and while it serves a purpose, it seems like an afterthought. There is some concern with continuity: the characters refer to what is hunting them as ‘intelligent’, yet the trap they set is mundane. There is some clarification later on, but the tale is slightly marred by this. The ending feels rushed, which is a contrast to how meticulously the opening was laid out. G.A. Minton is a fantastic writer, I just wish that greatness was on display consistently throughout the book.
If you’re looking for a quick read and horror is your genre of choice, this is a tidy little book that will hold your interest. The majority of it has the makings of a terrific horror story; however it could have used some ironing out. There is magnificent potential and the reader will be able to tell that the G.A. Minton put thought and effort into the telling of Antitheus.
