“Money doesn't make you happy... but it sure doesn't make you said either!" - Nate Temple”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
tags: humor
“It’s never good when you blindly follow some belief system or group of people without consciously deducing whether what they do is right or wrong. The number one test is to wonder what would happen if you openly, but respectfully, questioned your commander’s decision when you think it’s wrong. If the answer in any way resembles punishment, pain, or ridicule, rather than an explanation, you are probably not working for the good guys.” Gavin”
Shayne Silvers, The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Box Set (
“Any man of God who actively condones hatred of another group, especially blanket hate for any people different from himself, has lost his way. Truly.”
Shayne Silvers, Rage
“It was a gift of mine. Annoying people to immeasurable levels of hatred.”
Shayne Silvers, Grimm
“You see, women spoke on many different levels. Men were snipers, focusing only on the one thing directly in front of us, where women were raging cyclones of a dozen assassins hidden inside a single person. Their conversations sliced and diced an innocent gentleman on several planes of existence… at the same time, and without him being aware of the fatality.”
Shayne Silvers, Blood Debts
“I spotted a shiny item on the ground, and like all girls, squirrels, and toddlers, I made a move to grab it.”
Shayne Silvers, Grimm
“I had entered that critical stage in a woman’s life – that place when emotion starved to death and the only two options left to fill that void was to become a serial killer or to take a long, hot shower.”
Shayne Silvers, Whispers
“Paperback and buckram books decorated the floor, torn open to leave loose pages lying about like the useless guts of an eviscerated animal. Fury smoldered deep down inside my stomach, as if I were looking at heaps of dead children lying about the room instead. Books were my children. It was sacrilegious. Hundreds”
Shayne Silvers, The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Box Set (
“War is wild, but one must know when to be wild, and when to keep calm. Too cold, and you become calloused, brittle, and breakable. Too hot, and your emotions rule you, stealing your control. But to be strategically ruthless? Analytically wild? In a General, these qualities are priceless. For everything else, there’s soldiers,”
Shayne Silvers, Wild Side
“Right,” I muttered to myself, impaling the tiny positive-mental-attitude goblin who lived inside the deep, dark, super-black castle fortress of my soul. It was roommates with my silent love for The Sound of Music and cat memes. But”
Shayne Silvers, Tiny Gods
“There are 1,013,900 words in the English language, and none of them accurately portray how badly I want to hit you over the head with a chair. A heavy Amish chair.” Gavin…”
Shayne Silvers, The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Box Set (
“Here’s the thing about vampires: I hate them. Have for years. They’re like cockroaches. I mean I get it: they’re simply scuttling around doing what they need to do to survive just like the rest of us. But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel the urge to squeal and stomp the second I see one.”
Shayne Silvers, Whiskey Ginger
“The rules of grammar are just as important as the rules of engagement in war. Without them, we are barbarians,” I argued.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Answers can be dangerous… All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why,”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Nothing is written in stone.” “The Ten Commandments are. And I think we both know that neither of us would pull off an A on that grading scale.”
Shayne Silvers, Grimm
“An old Cherokee man was teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he told the boy. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One is evil — he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” After a few moments to make sure he had the boy’s undivided attention, he continued. “The other wolf is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside of you, boy, and inside of every other person, too.” The grandson thought about this for a few minutes before replying. “Which wolf will win?” The old Cherokee man simply said, “The one you feed, boy. The one you feed…”

“Love is precious, and shouldn’t be wasted on every passing whim, or it will mean nothing by the time you truly wish to share it with someone who matters.” I said softly.

Silvers, Shayne (2012-10-08). Obsidian Son: A Novel In The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Series (The Temple Chronicles Book 1) (p. 194). Argento Publishing. Kindle Edition.”

“You stupid thundercunt. I’m a Beast Master. I own shifters. And you are going to pay very dearly for that oversight.”
Shayne Silvers, Nine Souls
“I’ve cracked a deadly spine once or twice in my day. Like Twilight. Now that was deadly. The series had managed to turn normal adolescent girls into raving, hormone-filled psychopaths, intent on dating vampires, and no one would ever knowingly do something that stupid.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Sir Muffle Paws darted between my legs before hurling himself up onto a side-table that held a ritzy silver saucer with fresh cream. I rolled my eyes at the opulence granted to the filthy feline.”
Shayne Silvers, The Nate Temple Series Box Set 2
“I nestled myself into this cozy cleavage of carnage”
Shayne Silvers, Knightmare
“a small but functional kitchen which seemed overwhelmed by the sheer volume of assorted cookware. Pots, pans, cutting boards, strainers, even a damn rolling pin lay strewn about—as if at any moment Suzy Homemaker might burst in to bake us a fucking souffle. Now, before you start defending your God-given right to bear Teflon, keep in mind I have nothing against people who religiously cook their own meals—I simply don’t understand them. Especially my fellow city dwellers. I mean, why waste all that time preparing dinner when you live in a town chock full of restaurants and bars that deliver damn near 24/7?”
Shayne Silvers, Witches Brew
“And, kids, that’s what happens when you open Pandora’s Box, I thought to myself.”
Shayne Silvers, Legend
“Ientered the Sanctorum – Latin for big-ass secret library, and frowned to see I wasn’t alone.”
Shayne Silvers, Wild Side
“I’d considered letting a doctor give me a once over, but I was more than a little afraid she’d come back with a diagnosis that included grave looks and statements like “shouldn’t be upright” or “requires immediate surgery.”
Shayne Silvers, Cosmopolitan
“Having a group of people so similar to me, with the same internal struggles, searching for leadership, and knowing that they value me and my opinions. They in fact, crave it. It’s… humbling.”
Shayne Silvers, Silver Tongue
“Did you mean to hang up on me, Gunnar? You haven’t spoken for a while,” I said neutrally. “Fuck you and the horse you rode in on,” he growled. “I take it you found the owner?” I asked. I heard him dismiss the agent before speaking to me. “The report declares that a certain Gunnar Randulf and Nathin Temple have owned this 2012 Land Rover Defender Hard Top for the last three months. Funny, because I don’t remember ever using my home as collateral for a…” I heard a few more clicks. “$80,000 SUV.” “I remember you having it, but you sent it off to Vilnar for customization, which added on close to $100,000, if I remember correctly.” “Hmmm… It’s not as expensive as the Aston Martin,” he said disappointedly. “You destroyed the Aston Martin in less than 12 hours. This thing has bulletproof glass, and all sorts of other additions that would make it practically impossible to total. Unless you wanted to play chicken with an armored truck heading out of Fort Knox. That might be a different story. Then again, with as much as was spent on this guy, the armored truck might just die in shame.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“My tinfoil hat grew taller.”
Shayne Silvers, Carnage
“I was a putrid stain on the great, pristine cog of bureaucracy that is the United States government.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
