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 using those sleepless nights to try and get a grip

Blood Debts (The Temple Chronicles #2) by Shayne Silvers is sooo awesome. Nate is some real trouble this time. The wizards take away his powers when he needs it most. Not only the normal crazy creatures of the night are after him but the super crazies are. The angels are after him because they think he killed one of their own. The wizards think this is a good time to off him and he is SOL, until .... well, this isn't a book report. So much action, suspense, snarky come backs, humor, and crazy s ...more

Just finished reading “Blood Debts: A Novel in the Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Series (The Temple Chronicles Book 2) by Shayne Silvers. This series gets better with each new book. I am really enjoying the humor, adventure and endless excitement in this series. From demons, werewolves, vampires and wizards to demonic girl scouts this is a very interesting read. “You’re either a meal or a monster in this world. I prefer to be a monster, or to at least have others think I am. It’s safer” Meme ...more

Another unbelievable adventure

Another hair raising blood freezing adventure from Nate and friends. I enjoyed the twist in the tale and the wit. I look forward to the next adventure

This book is SO BAD I did not finish it. At the time of writing this book has a collective rating of 4.26 over 1,984 submissions. I have to wonder who these people are because I just don't see how anyone could think this book worth the time.

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

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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

Awful. This book reads like a bad Jim Butcher, with a powerful wizard who tries to crack wise. Problem is the book's in dire need of an editor. For instance, there are several pronoun and grammar errors. I am not the grammar police, but those errors distracted. Especially when combined with basic factual/ general knowledge errors that a decent editor would have caught.

Here's a for-instance. The wizard Temple's conscience makes him guilty about cheating on his girlfriend. Thing is, that guilt wo

Middle of the road.

Plotwise: 4 stars.
Pacing: 4 stars.
The typos, grammatical errors, random capitalisation and italics: -1 star.
The errors are found so consistently throughout the novel that I found it difficult to actually immerse myself in the story.

I bought this book to bridge the first and third stories, as I don't like reading them out of order. I found this story to be even more complex than the first in the series, "Obsidian Son." I noticed more grammatical errors, but the storyline was better, the plotting a little more complex, than it was in "Obsidian." There were more battle scenes--disgruntled dragons, angry and judgmental Nephilim (with sharp, pointy swords), demons and Greater demons, all parade through the pages demanding redre ...more

I had to knock off one star for the number of spelling and grammatical errors, but it's a testament to how good the story is that it didn't put me off. There are probably even more errors in this book than the first, but I've still gone straight into book three. Because, despite everything, the story is great fun. Okay I don't like Nate's girlfriend - for one thing, we've only got his word for it that she's too good for him, and he's hardly a reliable narrator - but I'm ignoring that for now. It ...more

Did you ever wish Hogwarts was edgier, and instead of being about an orphan boy raised by a middle-class family he was a rich kid from St. Louis, and instead of going to school he’s out causing havoc on the unsuspecting populace? No? Well, the Wizarding world has a new badass and his name is Nate Temple.

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

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
This rating is merely based on personal enjoyment. I am afraid if I was to rate it based on rules of literary criticism It would have ended with 2 stars or less.
Pros: - Entertaining
- Fun to listen to (Audio version)
Cons: - A lot of fillers
- Contradictions
- 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

A truly thrilling paranormal adventure!!!

I really don't know how Shayne Silvers is able to get away with SO MUCH ACTION while also writing a super awesome and fun story. Right when I was thinking that I was getting tired of the constant action and longing for normalcy, the next action scene slammed right into me and I forgot what I had been thinking about. I read this book and literally have anxiety the whole time because the whole book is a huge, "WTF is happening" moment (all of his others are

(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!😳😢

Love them all!

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

I have to say that after having read the first book in the series I was really hoping to like this one…and I did!

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

The first book

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....

Uncaged Review: This is a series that begs to be a television series. The book will have you laughing, crying and wanting to throw your kindle across the room in anger. This time out, Nate has been having nightmares, and is majorly sleep deprived. When he ends up drinking too much in a bar, and being warned by real angels, the wizard councils pulls him in and punishes him by putting a curse on him, the more he uses his powers, the more they will drain…permanently.

This story was smart, witty and

Master Nate Temple is alone for a few days while his friends, girlfriend and house staff have gone on vacation. He's a Wizard so it shouldn't be a problem. Nate's just not that lucky though. The Academy of Wizards has come to judge him over criminal acts of the past few months, mostly involving the Dragon community and the battle they faced, & to deliver an ultimatum that will kill him or rend him powerless.

Great book!

I stumbled onto "Obsidian's Son" quite by accident. The plot sounded intriguing, and I had just finished the book I had been reading. It was a good book, so I browsed around until I found " Blood Debts" and I just finished it. THIS IS A GREAT BOOK! I laughed, I cried, sometimes both at once! If you deal with a lot of stress, just grab either of these books, kick back and turn the first page! Before the first chapter is done, you are hooked into Master Temple's world, and your stress i

This book was battle after battler after battle and I was so tired of the action halfway through that I just wanted it to be done.

In book 2 we are sucked further into the crazy world of Nate and geeze does he get himself in some pickles !
We get to see more of Nate on his own and how he deals with things which was great to see, however we do still get to see the rest of the gang at times. I think this is the book where I really got Nate and how his mind works and why he does what he does....which is because he really does care.

Non-stop action

Just when you think it's unlikely that Nate will ever learn or change his ways, fate throws him a curveball. Just to be clear, Fate does not actually appear as a character in this story. But, if you look closely enough, you'll see her incriminating fingerprints all over several key scenes. Also, if there's a lack of background noise where you happen to be reading, you might hear faint, hysterical, giggling from time to time. I can't wait to read the next installment and find out w

Fantastic series, well written and so thoroughly enjoyable!

Curiouser and curiouser, Nate Temple is even more than he seemed and my what twists and turns there are in this second book of the Nate Temple series.

Non-stop action and surprises and an intriguing host of characters.
Including Achilles, yes, that Achilles, the Minotaur, yep, that one, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, yes, them, as well as angels, demons and some very unpleasant maniacal wizards.

I loved this book. I almost stopped to review it 1/3 of the way through. To me, the second book in a series gives you everything you need to know in terms of whether you want to continue with the series (and sometimes the author) at all. Mr. Silvers knocked it out the park. He somehow manages to grow the world of Nate Temple, without biting off more than he can chew. I don't want to spoil a thing for fellow readers- so I'll just end with - if you like urban fantasy, you've found your next good r ...more

I had trouble getting into it at first because this is a busy time of the year for me and I was only able to read in short bursts of time.
I was irritated with what was happening to Nate at the beginning of the novel, cheered out loud at one point, and nearly cried just before the end. It had a happy? ending. How happy does any ending get in an Urban Fantasy?
Let's keep this simple.
I give this book my best two word review: Good Story.

The book pulls you in almost immediately

It is rare to find a book that will have your outside world disappear and pull you into the world created between the pages of a book. This book did that for me. The words were so descriptive, that I found myself transported to the magical world Nate Temple inhabited. I raged, I laughed, and I cried right alongside the characters. The characters were vivid and interesting and the story mesmerizing. I loved every minute of it!
