Two old dudes want to kill me. Oh, and one of them is my ancestor...

And after centuries of practice, they're pretty good at the whole murder thing. But at least they want to kill each other just as badly.

Now, I've taken down a Greek Goddess, worn a Horseman's Mask, and I ride a homicidal unicorn who hates rainbows with a passion. Some might say sending two senior citizens

This is the eighth book in the Nate Temple series. Nate is enjoying a very brief respite with his friends, waiting until he can rescue one his friends before something terrible happens to her in Fairy. But after getting ready and making the trip, Nate finds out more truths about his past, truths that change things. Will his friends and enemies be ready for the changes or will more gods fall? I never know what to say when a series goes this long that I haven’t said before. But, since this book fo ...more

Finally, Nate Temple starts to get some answers about his past and his family’s past. Some. It’s not necessarily what you think. It’s not what he expected.

Also, spurred by conversations with Callie Penrose and with Pestilence, who also wants to take the name Conquest, he again makes something of an effort to grow up, at least in relation to how he handles his friends and supporters. Callie has suggested that Nate needs to tell his friends more often that he appreciates them. Just theoretically b

You know that feeling you get when cold weather arrives, and you slip on that lovingly battered leather jacket? You get that feeling of amusement, of home, not only because of the look and the feel, but also because of the silent acknowledgement of the miles you have traversed together and the miles you have yet to encounter. That's the feeling I get opening a new Temple Chronicles book.
War Hammer raises the stakes, blowing everything you think you know out of the water. You think the crew desce

TO TAH LEE Fabulous!! So much action, adventure, magic and paranormal beasties that it's hard to know what to say except WOW. Awesome storyline and amazing characters and let us not forget to mention the hilarious pranks and snarky comments. You will be enthralled from start to finish. I LOVED THIS BOOK. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

Once more, Silvers finds a way to rattle his status quo and stir up his world building. While not the titanic jumps in stakes or dynamic turn-arounds of some of the previous books, this one works on a (slightly) more subtle level, instead focusing heavily on the characters and dealing with the developments of their relationships in regards to prior events, and with new events that shed light on their history in ways they'd never imagined. The focus on characters over the fighting, though plenty ...more

Best one yet!

How can I express the wonder of this book without including spoilers? It will be difficult, but everyone should be able to experience the magic without foreknowledge of any of the outcomes.

Mr. Silvers wields a scythe sharp with wit and a lance punching through the mists to deliver a story satisfying in every way. I've grown to love these characters like family and await each installment as if waiting for a phone call from a beloved brother. His stories take me away from the tedium o

Love this series....

Love this series but hate when there is long lag time for the Author's release of the next book. I read so much and usually have at least 4 books that I'm reading simultaneously. So if there are slow release dates on series books....I forget a lot of the important details in the plots and sometimes need to read the first and last chapters of the last book in order to jog my memory. This means I have to keep the last book in the series rather than returning it since I am on th

Oh, this is a FUN one!

I obtained this book through the Kindle Unlimited program.
I selected it because it is a finalist for the 2018 Dragon Award in the 'Best Fantasy Novel (Including Paranormal)' category. And the review will be SHORT because I'm under a deadline.
However, a MUCH better treatment is available at my blog, Papa Pat Rambles.

This book is number 8 in the series, and when I discovered that, I was a bit put off, thinking I was going to be lost.

That turned out not to be the case.

I know, I should do this for every book and I have no good reason why I'm not.
Every one of these books are a pleasure to read, are hard to put down and make you laugh out loud. I can't count how many days I've gone to work tired because I couldn't stop reading one of these books! There just aren't that many "good places to stop reading". You do miss somethings if you stick with just the books in the Nate Temple series. I couldn't find the one about the daddy dayc

Wizards? Yup. Fae? Yup. Greeks? Yup. Norse gods? Yup. Answers to sooooooooo many questions we’ve had about Nate Temple and friends? Oh yeah baby! I didn’t think author Shayne Silvers could surprise me but his vast reservoir of plot twists is apparently bottomless. Nate and company must journey to the Fae lands to rescue his best friend’s (and local alpha werewolf alpha) fiancé, Ashley, who was taken there in order to heal by Pan himself. What was she healing from? A backstabbing attack by Nate’s

I'm thinking this is the last one of these I read. Nate Temple has supercalifragilisticexpialidocious powers, he's in line to be the 5th Horseman of the Apocalypse, his servant/bodyguard is the Greek god, Pan who is also Puck and Oberon, who is also King of the Wylde hunt, and there are lots and lots of other fantastically stupid plot devices being used and now Nate has been give a War Hammer which looks and acts suspiciously like Mjolnir, Thor's hammer!

OMG

Shayne, my dear, you have done it again!!! War Hammer is incredible. I am loving how you are spinning Callie into Nate's stories and vice versa. I am also loving how you continue to flesh characters out during the series, instead of the "well, you met them and I told you a little about XYZ in the last book, and that is all you need to know" that some authors do. All of your main guys and gals are still growing and we can see that. I love it!!

F-in' WOW.

I am speeched stunless.
The plot is amazing.
The characters are a few orders of magnitude beyond that.
Reading these books is the literary equivalent of falling in love with the right person. The kind where love fills every last atom of your existence, and you just KNOW it can't possibly get better... And the next day you realize you were wrong, it could, it DID. Every story of Shayne's I read, I just KNOW it can't possibly get better. And then he gives us the next one.

Nate Temple is a man to be reckoned with. He wields the powers of a wizard. He is friends with dragons, vampires, werewolves, etc. He's even killed a god. However now, he has some new problems. Not one, but two "tiny gods" want him dead. Preferably as painfully as possible. As if that wasn't enough, he must rescue a close friend from the land of the fae. To do this, he has to help some more of his friends get in touch with their inner monsters, while making sure they all understand how important ...more

Fast paced

This book flew by. Very fast paced and so much information that I barely have begun to process it. Nate Finally gets some answers, but they’re not ones he necessarily wants and they might just raise more questions.
The battle between Queen and Temple, and Temple, finally comes to a head but some surprises are dealt along the way. New mysteries, a surprising amount of character growth and a cameo by our favorite white haired girl.
There are gods, and there are Gods.
We’ve reached the point

The only reason I'm reviewing this and not the whole set is because I read the rest of the series during my Christmas time off. I love paranormal fantasy and this series, or anything by Shayne Silvers is worth reading, especially if you enjoy this genre....but seriously, it's a fun read even if you don't.

There are great characters whose personalities are sometimes a little familiar, there are a ton of pop culture references and the most entertaining snark. Nate is a mage with some exceptional po

“Two old dudes want to kill me. Oh, and one of them is my ancestor…. But at least they want to kill each other just as badly.”

I have absolutely adored every single one of Shayne Silvers’ The Temple Chronicles and War Hammer proved to be no exception. It’s plot is the perfect mix of snarky laughs, mystery, action, thrills and adventure. It’s hero, Nate Temple, is actually better than Jim Butcher’s Dresden - which for me is the highest of praise (and a praise I never thought I’d give). Add in a pe

Wow, every book is even better than the one before!
The Nate Temple Chronicles started with Obsidian Son and I absolutely recommend this series not least because each book manages to be even better than the one before, which is really impressive as the bar was set so high with Wild Side which was the book before this one. These chronicles are so packed with characters and mythology that you'll just have to read just 1 more chapter (or 2 or 3)?! I won't tell you the story as I couldn't do it justi

Shayne let Temple do some serious introspection and positive growing.. I was really happy to see it as it addressed a few concerns of mine. Several of the other characters were taken on their own personal growth journies as well.. Very well rounded..
There are also a lot of very funny scenes, one liners, and situations - beginning with "The Great Leafblower Incident".

War Hammer is the latest in the epic Nate Temple series. So much can happen in the fantastical worlds created by Shayne Silvers. Between Chateau Falco and the Fae world what could possibly happen? we will find new artifacts. See power like never before. We get to see the clashes that have been building. Some of the characters we love will get their time to shine. Oh, big one here, we get to learn about Nate's birth and childhood!

I could live in Nate’s world all day

It’s hard to believe that here we are in book 8 of the Nate Temple Chronicals and not only is the story line still fresh but exciting. Each book unveils another layer of the complex life of Nate.

I don’t want to give any spoilers but you are missing out if you are not reading this series. It has action, adventure, badass characters, dragons, wizards, God’s and LYAO snarky humor.

In fact this book was over the top with so many comedic zingers it’s hard to pick wh

I love the beginning of the book as it shows the humanity of the characters and their zest for life! Starting with a game play and going to another level was excellent! As you read this book you will learn more about Nate and Talon. Nate also gets advise for a Horseman which he does follow. Such interesting revelations.

Just can’t get enough!

So now I’m done with book 8 and about to start book 9. Can’t tell you how much I DON’T want to leave this world. So much going on! Love the personalities of the characters. Extreme emotions! I’m either laughing out loud or crying! If you like wizards, monsters, crazy compassionate characters and whacky humor, this book is a must. Just grab a book, grab a chair and hang on!
Shayne, I love you to pieces! Please keep this world alive!

I fell in love with this series from the beginning! This is now book 8 and it just leaves me wanting more! This book is full of one liners that cracked me up! When you see the title you are thinking maybe Thor stops me? Well, how about all father instead?
You will laugh, you will be at awe, old friends, and new show up.. Just pick up book 1 and I bet you won't be able to stop reading till you get to book 8!

A wyld ride

Wow! This series just gets better with every book. This was kept me glued to the page until well after my bedtime! The author packs so much in each story that you feel exhilarated and a bit confused throughout the book. So many story lines happening all at once. This book opened up so many new story lines while sadly ending others. I can’t wait to read the next book. Just awesome!
