Black Ops Wizard For Hire! When Things Go Bump In The Night, Nate and His Crew of Supernaturals Are On Call...
It’s Mardi Gras in St. Louis, but Nate Temple – plagued with horrifying night terrors of carnage and chaos that could qualify him as a card carrying psychopathic insomniac – is not celebrating. Instead, he’s been usi...more
More lists with this book...
YES!!! This is the series I've been waiting for!
Let me give you a bit of a background: I finished Literature University, so there are some stuff I appreciate in UFs. Mainly, being tied to other 'canon' reads, like old, important literature or authors that I've always loved.
Well, this series is amazing! It has soooo many small insertions from great people, from Plato to Aristotle to Frost. It's amazing, I love it when I feel like I know what the main character is talking about! He says so ma ...more
It begins with a dream sequence the author treats as real. Congrats to the author for figuring out that he can waste his readers' time. The dream sequence accomplishes nothing but tell the reader the MC is having bad dreams, something they alrea ...more
Nathin Temple is back again in Blood Debts. He is still searching for his parents’ killers so he can take revenge on them.
At the beginning of this novel he is suffering from night terrors, dreaming that all his friends are killed, his house destroyed, and waking up only when he is on the verge of being killed. As the story progresses, his real life gets to be almost as bad as the dreams.
During his search for the killers, he lea ...more
Here's a for-instance. The wizard Temple's conscience makes him guilty about cheating on his girlfriend. Thing is, that guilt wo ...more
Pros: - Entertaining
- Fun to listen to (Audio version)
Cons: - A lot of fillers
- Extremely simplistic solutions/ Conflict resolutions
-Mixed up pronouns and other grammatical mistakes (Even though it was an Audio-book!)
-lack of research
- Massive plot holes
- logical problems
I'm looking forward to the next one
In this novel, it seems like the whole world is turning against Nate and will have to overcome insurmountable odds, as well as persistent night terrors, if he plans on living a few more years. Ho ...more
I prefer female MCs;so, I read the 8 books offered before going to the beginning with Nate. This book vies with those in the plot, action and heart. My only criticism...although I don't understand how readers let grammar mistakes diminish their enjoyment of novels, the repeated mistake of using so and so "and I" when it's usually "me" is irritating, especially coming from a character who is supposed to have excellent grammar when he wants to use it. The rule is generally, if saying ...more
If you haven't read the book, don't read on.
Things were answered from Obsidian Son and new things were brought into question that I hope will be answered in Grimm. Nate never gave up even when ALL of the odds were stacked against him. And through it all he kept his smart-ass attitude. There were literally a few laugh out loud moments. At the end when he was able to see his parents, I shed a few tears. The whole angels a ...more
Without giving into spoilers;
EVERY SINGLE sexually viable woman (not nearing retirement) was objectified. Every. Single. One. At one point even the sole female member of the cloaked and masked wizard police decided she just had to flash her tits... because... undercover? The main character manages to sorta cheat on his girlfriend, but it's okay... because... magic? A scaly demon lady... naked, a giant demon spider... giant demon tits. There is literally no way to accurately ...more
BLOOD DEBTS : (Book 2 Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Series) : SHAYNE SILVERS.
Shayne Silvers spins another block buster, prize-winning masterpiece into one tantalizing creation involving Agents of Heaven, Hell and Earth into perfection. Catapulting this showstopper into an incredible mind-blowing culmination of greater heights than his pre ...more
(Read using Kindle Unlimited)
Wow, this book's story was bleak although still somehow inspiring & completely gripping!! I found the refusal of Good & Evil to budge in their rigid stances as frustrating as Nate did!😡😔
With all of his friends & allies out of town Nate is left to fight for The Armory & justice for his Parent's murders alone. He is being thwarted on 3 fronts by great powers - he's almost powerless to fight back!😳😢 It looks like Death ...more
"don't tempt me. i could justifiably end you. right here, right now."
"tempt you? i just fought a demon in the middle of the street and you sat there and watched. even the Regular jumped in to help me. what the hell is wrong with you? are you honestly delusional enough to think you are wearing the white hat here?" (a regular is a non-wizard)
"its never good when you blindly follow some belief system or group of people without consciously deducing whether what they ...more
Was excellent. I have it five stars.
But this book is so fricking disheartening, Nate losing battle after battle until you are ready to throw your kindle across the room, in a fit of tears.
Look! I like the characters. I like the premise. I like the wacky world of regulars and freaks.
But I can't handle the horror of Nate losing battle after battle....
I started reading the third book, and after, again, all these guys that Nate SAVED getting into to the death fights, and all the SAME p ...more
The story, well there is not much I can say that is not in the book blurb without it being a spoiler. It is a good enough story. The only gripe I have is the part about Nate being stripped of his power. This is a personal opinion of course but I really did not like that. It just kind of felt like a cheap way of not making Nate too powerful and creating suspense. That gripe is the only ...more
This story was smart, witty and ...more
The main draw of Nate’s books, for me, is fitting together the roles that Quinn and tCallie (from the Phantom Queen and Feather and Stone series, respectively) play. I found him interesting in their books, not so in his own. The action/events he gets himself and tangled with our interesting, but that’s about as far as it goes. I don’t really feel the connection between him and Indie, and a fellow’s affections felt a little awkward here (That most likely was the point, but I mean more ...more
And then he's under attack from the Academy, the ruling group of wizards. And angels. And demons. And who knows what else. Nate is a tad overwhelmed. Everyone is after him, and nobody is interested in helping him. What's a magician with rapidly dwindling powers to do?
Mr. Silvers has deftly woven a tale that escalates every step of the way. When you think it should ...more
