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.
With the Four Horsemen refusing to help, and an army of monsters living on his lawn, Nate resorts to the one thing he’s best...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 ...more
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.
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 ...more
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 ...more
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. The one and only critiq ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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. (I love reading series from beginning to end, almost as much as ...more
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 ...more
Nate has always had a lot going on but this was so enthralling with one thing after another so that you ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
Such an excellent book! I give this book 10 stars for the story line, character development and love and hope. Nate will go through some changes along with Tory, Ashley and others. He will keep his promises but he will also be betrayed as well as supported by friends who fight for the other side in the war. There is so much going on in this book and so many plots twists and discoveries that you will have to read this book because I hate giving away story parts and ruining the book f ...more
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.
Once you read ...more
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.
Entranced from first to last books. Characters I've never before encountered, and fascinating twists on ones I thought I knew. Only a hint of romance that furthers the plot without sidelining the story. Incredible battle scenes, secrets, nuances, surprises.
But PLEASE get a copy editor that knows the differences between "and me" and "and I." And when to capitalize nouns or leave them lowercase. Distracting to an otherwise smooth read. A few other things missed in the copy edit ...more
Just when you think you know where a Nate Temple book is heading Silvers pulls the proverbial rug from beneath your feet and … you end up somewhere totally unexpected, like the Twilight Zone, or in this instance in the land of the very creepy Fae.
Nate meets some truly hair-raising foes in this chapter of his adventures - his jeans and the staircase of Chateau Falco!
A seriously nail-biting, action packed thriller of a ride sprinkled with the snarky ...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. We'll just ...more
This book felt like almost 2 stories in one. It took 3 characters in the series and made them more complex....or introduced us to more complexities. And just when those characters arrive home from their quest--and you'd think the story is over, we have more to go as we join the other sub-plot or multiple sub-plots going on as we learn there is a back story or two to everything. Very Machiavellian.
Now, let's talk about this specimen of a man named Shayne...
Shayne Silvers writes the "Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Series" which features a foul-mouthed, flawed, young wizard with a chip on his shoulde ...more
