Hell hath no fury like Callie Penrose…

Ever since Callie – the Vatican’s rookie monster hunter – killed a demon a few weeks ago, Kansas City’s been eerily quiet.

But she soon learns it’s just the calm before the storm.

Because werewolves begin abducting young women in Kansas City, and a new church opens its doors, pronouncing death to all idols, including these ‘make-believ

A fantastic read

This is a wonderfully written novel and a great second book in the series. Witty, contemporary, and some kicking action to spice it up.

Mr. Silvers has outdone himself. Every book gets better and better. This book continues Callie’s story (first book was Unchained), and the reader gets to watch her grow, learn new things about herself, and meet new allies. There are many literary references in the story, as well as amusing references to today’s society. He had me laughing on the second page, and that lasted throughout the book with little gems here and there.

“[S]o many new faces coming to Missouri – gods, legends, and nightmares” ... and assorted other monsters and wizards too. Don’t worry, folks, you’ve got Callie Penrose, rookie monster killer, in your corner! What, that doesn’t reassure you? For shame, as our gal Callie is up for the task in “Rage”, book 2 of Shayne Silvers’ new “Feathers and Fire” series.

It’s no surprise to readers who have followed other series, the highly addictive “The Temple Chronicles” that this series and its star are alr

Caught between the forces of Heaven and Hell, Callie finds new allies and new powers to help her fight to remain alive and independent of those who would claim her as their own, or have her die to further their plans (or hinder their enemies).

Shayne Silvers continues to be one of my fave "new" writers! His stories are interesting, fun, snarky, paranormal adventure stories with good "people" (who aren't always human!) and great details. I can "see" the story play out in my mind as I read ... when I can manage to slow down my reading enough to "watch" the movie in my mind. My biggest problem with his writing is that I tend to rush my reading, unless I make a deliberate effort to slow down, because I'm caught up in the story and want to ...more

Another masterpiece by this author. He awes me with his writing and imagination. The combinations of supernatural creatures, religious figures, as well as a totally unexpected but brilliant character addition in this book took that even further and blew my mind. I can't wait until January for more Feathers and Fire, and Nate Temple and his merry crew as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read any genre.

Silvers continues his production line without a hitch, steamrolling another exceptional installment of his works out to readers and sculpting another segment of his universe into place with the usual myriad of small hints and subtle touches, adding more layers of mystique to the overall structure of the world's larger story beyond the scope of how even the characters themselves yet can see. The quality of writing continues to hold steady and while not as dramatic as some of his twists and turns ...more

What an excellent follow up, kick-ass story!! I'm slowly becoming obsessed with this series and world (I will be starting the Nate Temple series asap!), and I'm loving getting to know Callie more and seeing how her powers develop. Shayne Silvers, you devil, dragging out the revelation of Callie's powers and supernatural history for as long as you can! I see you, milking it because you know we will stay loyal and keep reading because we're hooked. Well, I say to you sir that I am lactos

Where to start with this? It’s only a few weeks after the chaos of Unchained, the first book in this series, and already the shifters, magic users, and demons are out causing trouble in Kansas City again. And it’s up to Callie Penrose and her mentor Roland, the local Shepherd, to stop them.

Callie is particularly worried for her friend Claire who was scratched by a werebear during the previous fighting. Now it appears that Claire too will become a werebear, and Callie goes to visit the bears look

Callie, Mr. Silvers’ newest character, is back in her second book. After getting rid of Jonathon, Callie must now track down his sister, but new problems keep cropping up: her best friend has a unique problem, she needs to find out about a new church in town, and Roland is going to Italy to try and help catch the mole in the organization. Not to mention her new abilities. But soon, she is surrounded by deaths, and she is the only one who can get to the bottom of them. I absolutely adore this ser ...more

Callie Penrose is back and she’s dealing with some anger issues. I know it hasn’t been too long since the first book in the series came out but I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on this latest novel. Based in the Templeverse, we see all manner of magical creatures in Callie’s city, from vampires to Nephilim, but those are the least of Callie’s problems as she finds herself facing the elusive demon, Amira, whilst trying to deal with rogue shifters and religious zealots.

As always, I loved

Callie Penrose's adventures continue and she has a lot to learn about the magical community in Kansas City. After defeating a demon intent on using her sacrifice to open a door to hell, Callie has to come to terms with the aftermath. Her mentor, Roland leaves for the Vatican to sniff out a suspected mole and Nate Temple, who helped her with the demon issue, has stuff to do back in St. Louis, leaving Callie alone with the monsters in her city.

Great book, lots of action

When I bought the first book (originally drawn to the cover art) I didn't realize this was part of another book series world. I have not read the Nate Temple series. So the first book had a few side characters in it that I was not familiar with and felt a little confused until I realized they were from the other series. However, that book got me hooked on Callie. This is such a unique and fun world. The heroine is funny, likeable, and definitely not a pushover. This boo

Poor Callie just cannot catch a break. Only weeks have passed since Callie was abducted by a demon and Kansas City is in an uproar. New shifters are causing havoc and death, a new church on the scene has it out for monsters and something isn’t right with Callie’s best friend Claire.
When Callie’s investigation gets tangled into a police case she gains unexpected help, from a Regular, no less. There is a bunch of mythology blended into this book and I still can’t figure out who the shoe maker

Callie isn't on her way. She has arrived in full blazing glory. As she tries to understand variant powers, chaos erupts in KC. The scene has expanded with Claire's riotous growth as a character, and the introduction of new characters (two hilariously familiar to some Fans, and one not completely new). Yes, the accustomed action, humor, emotion, and attitude fly full force. I refer to this as a singularity story: the vortex draws in the reader, and the further you go, the more impossible escaping ...more

Wild rides are Shayne Silvers’ specialty, and he certainly does not disappoint with Callie‘s latest adventure. He is an absolute master at seeding his stories with tiny little tidbits and details that someone unused to this world will read and forget. Once you have read a Shayne Silvers novel, you will learn that none of these are unimportant and that all of them will come back to have significance in the story. Even knowing all this, Callie’s 2nd book still managed to surprise me with shock and ...more

Callie Penrose does know who she is or where she came from. She just knows she was raised a Catholic school and a Shepherd learning to fight with all kinds of weapons even her body. Just within the past few weeks her magic had gotten stronger. She found she might be related to Angels? Strange beings showed up in her town some friends some powerful but she was to protect the innocent. Freaks or human or shifters or Gods among them all were her division to care for.

Callie Penrose is Awesome!

I really like the interplay between the characters and how even new players have well formed back stories - and the many from literary fiction masterpieces..
Watching Callie grow in her abilities and confidence is very inspiring - and "Clairebear" as well! Even Roland appears to have more confidence in his young charge!
The fact that justice was served and the "Freak" factions are coming to some realizations is just icing on the cake.

Callie Penrose kicks butt

I probably should have read this book before Warhammer (Nate Temple #8) but it didn't make much difference to the story line. While reading Warhammer I did consider swapping to Rage (Callie Penrose#2) but decided not to change. Callie is a force to be reckoned with, unleashed in this story by (Roland) her ' bodyguard' a shepherd working for the Vatican. We are introduced to Darling & Dear in this book which explains their connection to Nate's new accessory in Warhamm

We kind of get an idea of who she is evolving into in book one, but holy cow this book! There is a ton of mystery, intrigue and investigating with Mr. Silvers wonderful supernatural world front and center with an amazing finish and my favorite...lots of snarky dialog.

Another winner

Alright, mea culpa! I admit that it took me a book to warm up to Callie. But I a solidly a fan after book two. There was excitement, twists and humor. I didn't find it predictable though Shayne dropped hints at where it was going. I do admit to a bit of fog surrounding the end. Perhaps that is intentional but I'm really certain what the choice was. Oops, that may be a spoiler. Anyway, look forward to book three though I'm planning to raz Shayne to deliver before 1/2018.

Brilliant book from start to finish!

I find myself loving Callie for her strong loyalty to her friends and to an entire city she has vowed to protect. The more I get to know her, the more I admire her grit, her strength, and her unwillingness to give up, no matter the cost. Rage pits Callie against strong foes, inner turmoil, and she digs down deep to do battle against incredible odds. The magic, the nail-biting excitement, and Callie's character shines through the entire book. Simply brilliant.

Another job well done

This was a great addition to this series and a good book overall. The only draw back was there where one of two facts\statements that I didn't remember any explanation of or prior mention of them, I could be forgetting them for before but if I'm not then that was probably the only real draw back. I still have certain hopes for Callie's future I'd like to see and can't wait to read the next book. And not to spoil anything but the ending of this book definitely had a few surpr

Great sense of humour, strong when she needs to be
I initially came to Unchained, the first book in the Callie Penrose series, after reading books in the Nate Temple series but even though Nate Temple also features in these books, you don't need to have read them first. Callie is a great main character having a great sense of humour, being able to be strong when she has to which she combines with a strong moral compass and passionate loyalty. It’s great to learn more about her and her chosen fami

I adore this story so much!! Callie is amazing. Probably one of my favorite heroines. She thinks things through and recognizes when she's being emotional. So many of these types of books have characters that just whatever stupid thing they want without regard of the consequences. Callie isn't like that. She is smart and uses her wit. I feel like she's completely relatable and I love her.

I was hesitant to read this one because I didn't love the first book in the series, but since I was at least sufficiently curious as to what happens next I went ahead and did so. I am glad I did as the series and the characters seem to have found their footing. About a fourth of the way in the everything gelled for me and it became quite a fun story with a compelling cast of characters that I definitely want to continue reading about in the future.

Fast pace and enjoyable

Solid five star rating. The first book had a slow start and didn't pick up for me until half way through but this second installment to the series took off from the beginning. The twists in the storyline keeps you guessing until the author reveals the plot. I loved meeting the new characters and their roles in making this novel an enjoyable one. I'm looking forward to what happens next with Callie.

Feathers and Fire

I really love the story behind the main character and how the author weaves in not only the main focus character from his other great series, but also smoothly introduces the reader to other new and unexpected characters. The author is a master at intertwining drama, humor and action with all his stories and I can't wait to continue on this wild ride of self-described with Callow Penrose. Great read!

Another fantastic story!! If you like paranormal mixed with "abbynormal" this is the author for you!
Magic mayhem and heroes! Laugh out loud moments, intriguing storyline. I hope that Darling &Dear continue to be featured in upcoming books, really enjoyed their characters and high quality specialized leather goods.
I also appreciated the parallel to unfortunate climate of hate, and the authors view totally supports my own. Rock on Shayne!!
