To become a Godkiller you have to awaken the monster inside you…

Almost a year has passed since Nate’s ex-fiancée woke up a Greek god intent on world domination and war. The problem? He doesn’t know which god. And the promised war hasn’t started yet.

The Mysterious Reader
Shayne Silvers' The Wild Side is indeed a gloriously "deathly hilarious" novel as promised. This seventh installment of the Nate Temple Supernatural Thrillers might just be the best yet (a very high bar, indeed). Your laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe - all at the same time while having a blast reading this novel. It's plot is wonderfully written and the already superb characters somehow get even better. I know, too many superlatives there, but frankly this book deserves it. My one recommendation ...more

Wow, I don't even know how to review this book without giving away spoilers. It was just so over the top amazing, kick butt fantastic. Each book in the series just keeps getting better and better but this one is by far my favorite! Nate is turning into something extraordinary. I think something like the world has never seen before.

The author always gives Nate snarky, funny and sometimes wholly inappropriate dialog that just makes me laugh out loud. The action is always intense. The fee

I am speechless, absolutely speechless. Mr. Silvers has done it again. This book is the best in the series so far and, yes, I know I say that every time because it’s true. One of the things in this book that was different than the others is that Nate had to step aside and let his allies prove themselves without his help. However, don’t think that means there was no action at all. There was plenty of that! Nate had to take a trip to the wild side, but literally and figuratively, and find his inne ...more

Another 10 Star Reading Immersion!

I cannot begin to tell you how fantastic this book is. If you love urban fantasy, then this is the series for you.
If you have never read any urban fantasy, start with this series.
I am always absolutely blown away by this author. And this book is no exception. In fact, it's the best one yet.
You will laugh until you cry, then one minute later you will gasp, then you will be laughing again.
You'll wonder what is going to happen next, but you will probably be wrong.

This series gets more and more intense every book! Nate is back again trying to find out which God has risen and to get with killing them.

In true Nate temple style Wild side had me laughing from page one. Picture Hercules getting the mick taken out of him while playing beer pong to give you an idea of the humour.

This books sees horseman War come into his character and also allows us to see a different side, a more wild side to Nate and some of his closest friends. Travelling through the land of

Slow to start, weird stuff happening in Faerie, the slow burn, then boom - action, chaos and mayhem all the way to the end.

And again I'll say it: love Nate, hate Indy.... no spoilers here, but the ending in this book was quite satisfying!

I very much enjoyed the first books in this series but it is going down hill. Wild is not how I would describe this book. Ridiculous fits better.

Once again the magical mayhem in this book is very nearly non-stop. If you haven’t already read the first six books in the Nate Temple series, you will want to do so before you get into this one; otherwise you will have a hard time figuring out what is going on. That’s tough enough anyway.

Over the last four books – maybe five – Nate has been pitted against more and more difficult magical foes. Each time it has seemed as if, once he has defeated this foe, the biggest source of his troubles will h

Loved the book. Love the series!

Book #7 of the Nate Temple series. I cannot say enough about this series. It really is good. It has great characters, even some from mythology, like the Minotaur and Achilles, who take on these cool personas and become these real life characters within the story. I think my favorite thing about this series is the witty humor. It comes off as just regular banter, not forced at all and that takes writing skill which this author has in spades.

Uncaged Review: I was actually on the fence with this book, especially the first half as it was a tad on the confusing side when Nate gets an invitation to the Land of the Fae, which this dark land changes everybody in the group – Nate, Tory, Ashley and Sir Muffle Paws, and not so much Carl. It went far out there, even for the Temple universe. Not many people survive this land, and Nate steals back a mortal child that had been switched with a changeling fae child, that had been killed. Each pers ...more

Absolutely compelling! Embrace the world of Master Nate Temple and it will...Blow. Your. Mind. If you could imagine the best things of The Avengers, 300, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, and Harry Potter (as an adult with even cooler friends), you might come close to Nate's life. The Wild Side is the best of the series so far. There's more fun, heart, family, laugh your ass off, general craziness, and "we bring the terror" moments to date. Nate's got bigger and badder enemies, some new, some old ...more

Nate Temple: Wild Side

First off I want to say this is a great book series, overall. This is definitely one of my favorites. As a child, Nate Temple starts out a rich, and very annoying, playboy. He devotes himself to magic, he eventually becomes an amazing wizard. He goes through a lot, loses and gains friends, he fights epic battles and learns extraordinary new things.

In Wild Side, Nate fights many things, from his ex-fiancée to gods. He learns new things of his friends and himself. Through ou

Absolute trip. Nate and some of the crew have a mission in the land of the Fae.
Absolute chaos. Then they still have to go to war for a face-off with an awakened god.
This installment feels like a departure into new ground for the series, while simultaneously fitting right in as part of the overall story arc. More mysteries are answered, while additional questions are unveiled.
Laughter, tears, disbelief, and wows are in abundance. Upon completion, I felt like my chi's privates had been speedbagged

One of the best books I've read this year

Can I just say that I can't wait until December? That's when the next installment in this series will be released, and that the ending of Wild Side has left me craving more. Each installment is better than the last.

Wild Side is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. One minute, I'm laughing hysterically at Mr. Silver's wicked sense of humor, the next, I'm crying for one of the characters, and the following, I'm pondering the philosophical questions raised by N

Poor Indie

I think that Nate really is taking for granted how he turned out with his 2nd, more primitive self. Afterall, he had Talon to guide him at least. Indie had no one while in the land of Fae. Indie was manipulated by a maker and two queens, not to mention that Joseph's stones were literally branded into her a short time ago. Nate could have handled her with love and gentleness from the beginning instead of trying kill her (even if it was on reflex the first time) and screaming at her and

The book intrigued me when the author was nominated for one of my Best Indie Titles of 2017 awards on my author blog, and the author was nice enough to share the story with me for a review. I know this is book seven and I haven't read books 1-6, but I enjoyed it. It started off strong, with a fast pace, and there wasn't a need to be familiar with the other books, but I think I’ll need to go back and read them all as a series.

All Hail Shayne Silvers and the Nate Temple Series!!

Nate is at it once again! Provoking demi-gods, Greek Goddesses, hanging with the 4 Horsemen and his Great, great, great Grandfather - aka The Mad Hatter!
While waiting for Indie and her war to begin, he is "Invited" to Fairyland by the leader of the Wild Hunt for who knows what... Nate can't say no because Mallory is the one delivering the invite.. What could possibly go wrong with that? LOL
In the meantime, he is introducing his new Kansas City

Wow, this series just gets better and better with every book being even more packed with action than the one before!! Nate's back in Wild Side, his 7th book in the series that starts with Obsidian Son. No-one is safe from Nate's snark whether friends, family, enemies or even gods?! I challenge you not to laugh as he romps through myths, legends and pop culture with his own brand of Nate-ness!!

Nate has always had a lot going on but this was so enthralling with one thing after another so that you

I love this series so far, but I’ll admit this book wasn’t my favorite. I’m probably going to be tarred and festered for saying this but it ventured into...too much action? There just wasn’t enough of the fun, everyday, urban fantasy snark, and it crossed over into epic fantasy rather than urban fantasy. The only settings are no his “haunted mansion” and alternate realities, and no real interaction with St. Louis at all anymore. That said, it might be my fault because I always like the building ...more

Very satisfying! Loved Nate getting his Wylde side on... Didn't think it was possible for him to get any more badass! Kind of felt sorry for Indie at the end, but Natestayed stronger than I would have. I'm glad he and Callie seem to be connecting. Just what he needs and deserves; love, understanding, acceptance... and another HOT BABE! Too bad about Matthias, I thought he was finally going to get some peace and happiness in his life.

Wild Side by Shayne Silvers

Wild Ride is more like it. This is the 7th book in the series of Nate Temple. Nate is a Wizard, A Maker, A maybe Horseman, a Fae, I think it is only the beginning. Shayne has a cleaver sense of humor and he will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. If you like a well developed character who is always in trouble but always trying to do what is right, you will love Nate Temple. He is not a good guy, he is not a bad guy, I would call him a grey guy.

There's a little Wild Side in All of Us!
Just when you think the last book was the best you have ever read, Mr. Silvers blows you away with the next one. I used to speed through books till I started reading this series. I wanted to savor each nuance and unexpected turn of events. The merging of personalities and battling within oneself was riveting. This book is not a fluff piece but an intellectual titillation! If you are looking for a book to keep you on the edge and begging for more this is it

Temple Chronicles

First, I have to say that I would recommend this book and all of the Temple Chronicles to anyone who loves a good story! I absolutely love these books enough that I will be reading them again! Shayne Silvers, you have written an awesome series, I thank you for the many enjoyable hours I've spent lost in the pages of these books! I can't wait for December to get here and Nate Temple #8 comes out! Until then I'll be reading "Unchained" in Feathers and Fire book 1.

Wild Side (Nate Temple Thriller)

Author Shayne Silvers has hit out of the park once again with this latest thriller where he weaves in wonderful characters from mythology throughout written and oral history. Not only does he grab the reader with a very real chance you will spit out your favorite beverage laughing in the first chapters, but he also masterfully brings you along for the "Wild" adventure as well. I really have a very hard time waiting to continue the ride with all the great character

This book was a wild ride on the wild side. I heartily recommend the "Nate Temple" books (aka, "The Temple Chronicles") and the spin-off series about Callie (who is based in Kansas City). The author is active on Facebook, too, and it's a fun group!! Start at the beginning of the Nate stories, and read them all ... and try to stop long enough now and again for little things like eating, sleeping, bathroom pit stops and personal hygiene, and maybe go to work (so you can get more money and buy more ...more

Shayne Silvers continues to top my expectations. With an absolute and immutable refusal to devolve into the tired pattern of redeeming every loss or making everyone "good" in the end, he takes us on a rollercoaster of adventure as our favorite wizard Nate Temple sets out to once again do the impossible. I can usually pull out one line from a book that is my favorite--I cannot here but only because there are just too many.
