Slave Boy

Book One in The Democ’chu Series

By Nath Brye

The Demon-child. Taken from his family at five seasons of age and thrust into a life of slavery. Given a label he did not deserve after an unlucky incident that happened during the raid on his village.

Ripped from the arms of his parents, sailed to a far-away land and forced into a life of cruelty, beatings and death. The only memory he has of home is the last time he saw his mother. His mother was beaten badly and being held down on the ground by Outlanders. He is forced to grow up fast, forced to defend himself and forced to deal with his growing anger and swirling emotions.

Then, as if his life was not hard enough, he is thrown into the pit to fight for his life time and time again. A story of one slave’s life from child to manhood, the friends he makes along the way and the journey, he finds himself on a journey he never asked for but is undertaking none the less. A journey that will see him dead if he is not careful.

A journey that has no happy ending! Or does it?


Nathan had created an alternative world of fiction which demonstrated the relationship between boyhood and manhood, as well as the development of a brotherhood amongst trauma survivors and how the relationship being mentee and mentor developed an incredibly strong bond. The story shows the mental resilience, inner strength and the power boys and men have, and what they are capable of when they truly work together. Slave Boy is the first in a series of possibly five or six books, and includes the development of a new world, new languages, times and measurements.

About Nath

From an early age Nath was a story teller. 

Throughout his early life he followed creative pursuits from music, roles in high school musicals to creative writing. He dreamed of being an actor in his teenage years but as life does, life went a different way.

He wrote as a hobby through his early and mid-twenties, but it was not until his late thirties when he started stand-up comedy, that his writing became a focus.

In 2020 he was preparing to start writing his first hour comedy show to tour New Zealand’s Fringe Festival circuit, however he had no drive for comedy at the time and found himself writing stories once more. Within a month he had written the first draft of Slaveboy, which was published on 6th December 2020.

He quickly followed up with the second book in the series, Bloodchild.

After a life of looking, he had finally found his direction and his drive.

As a published author, he now has the medium to share his stories, share his vision and share his imagination.

Share the journey with him!
