Power is patient, power is kind…

No, wait. That’s not right. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely… Just ask Nate’s ex-fiancée.

It’s almost this wizard’s birthday, so, he can cry if he wants to. That is, if he lives to see it…

Because a lot of people want him dead: his fiancée, his long-lost ance

"Oh, if only you knew what I knew. You would be on my side. If ONLY YOU KNOW."
"So...can you tell me?"
"Nope. Just gonna be all mysterious about my motivations and betrayal the entire book...but trust me. if you knew? You would TOTALLY be on my side. If only you knew.

Excellence in escalation. The execution is a brilliant riot. Past mysteries are solved, opening a slew of new mysteries amid the snark-a-thon. Roller coaster would be too gentle a comparison. I recommend picking it up.

Tiny Gods? How about Massive Cluster***

So the last few Nate Temple books have been consistently turning up the action and introducing new and more powerful characters. I for one have loved every single bit of it. If you enjoy fantasy, action, mythology, and The 4 Horsemen (ahem...), or just a good bottle of scotch and a legendary cigar, then these books are most certainly for you.

Story was good

Honestly the story was very good except there is no reason to put current politics into this no matter what side of the line you are. I was pretty disgusted because I am reading urban fantasy...a fictional world of the authors creation. I did not pick up this series to read the authors political leanings. So yes even one comment can ruin it for people.

Love Nate, hate Indy. Onto book 7.

Just finished Beta Reading “Tiny Gods: A Novel in the Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Series (The Temple Chronicles Book 6)” by Shayne Silvers. If I’m completely honest, I must say I had some angst and a bit of trepidation after reading the first couple chapters. I’m not really sure what it was, but I just didn’t feel that usual Shayne Silvers flow in the story. That being said, redemption came, and the flow that I so love in Shayne’s writing returned with gusto. The introduction of Yahn is to ...more

A car chase and shootout were in full swing, Alucard crazily driving the wrong way down the street while Nate berates him for not getting them out of the line of fire of the mob-like weregorillas. They had to circle around to pick up Yahn at the dance school and Nate’s satchel which would be needed for their escape. Unfortunately, in the melee that followed, one of the Reds, dragon shifters, scratched Yahn – so there just might be an issue later if he sprouts shiny disco scales and breathes fire ...more

This book is packed to the gills with excitement,twists, revelations and so much more that I couldn't put it down.
Nate has his birthday coming up, but with so many enemies he may not actually get to celebrate it.
I love how all the characters are complex and well developed and you connect with them whether you love or hate them. It was great how this book bring things from the previous books together that you have to keep turning the page to see what will happen next. Don't worry we still have

3.75 Stars

This could have been an awesome story but Indie single handedly spoiled this for me. In Beast Master Indie returned as a psychopath without giving any reasons about her abrupt change . Throughout this book Indie kept dropping cryptic hints whenever Nate confronted her. The reason told at the very end turned out lame and I don't understand why she couldn't tell Nate about it before. I never got Nate and Indie's chemistry so I'm not heart broken over it.

The plot was good. Shayne Silver

Tiny Gods is the best Nate Temple yet. The action is nearly non-stop, the characters an excellent blend of traits (and races--wizards, werewolves, dragons, etc.). I saw my favorite characters from previous books with new additions for this one. Mr. Silvers more than captures my attention with the plot, characters, pace, language, and humor. Especially, the humor. I laughed out loud reading this book, which is somewhat rare for me. I guess it was a good thing I was reading at home! Nate has becom ...more

What do you do when your fiance wants you dead, so does one of your ancestors, your house is alive, and , oh yeah, its your birthday too? wee, if you are Nate Temple, you just get on with another normal day. Nate is back for the sixth installment in his ever exciting and snarky saga. In this installment, we see Nate learning about and coming to terms with may of the players and machinations that have been playing in the background since the beginning of the series. So, if you have read ANY other ...more

What a read! Even better than the first book and that is going some.
"toe-tah-lee awesome" (read the book to see where this comes from)
I didn't think the Nate Temple series could get any better but it has!
The only con side is the massive wait for the next book in the series to arrive!

I received a free copy of this book
Shayne did it again

Holy s#itballs...Shayne has done it again......Nate starts this one out already in trouble....."Be careful of my balls they're fragile....magical spheres I mean spheres"....hahahaa had me laughing out loud in public. This series just keeps getting better and better....leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for September.

Tiny but Mighty

This is definitely one of my favourite Nate Temple novels. There's Icabod, an update on the nefarious Indie and everyone else you can think of. You definitely won't miss out on a thing with this scathinglngly mesmerising novel. As a riveting reader of the Feathers series I can't wait to see where this goes next.

Seriously. I have to wait until September?

Really enjoyed Tiny Gods. It was a great combination of action humor and pure aggregation! The story, though stuck with mythos we've accepted as normal, has enough imagination to keep me coming back.

A snarky brutal romp

Mr Silver's deserves all the praise and laudits for this series! I am a voracious reader, poor reviewer, and complete fan! With this series he demonstrates that. He is able to and does write in the company of some heavy hitters.
I have read all the Temple books in just 3 days with very little sleep, any author that can get that king of commitment from me earnings my respect.
Are the books a bit formulaic ? (The reason this is only a 4 star review) Yes but the continuous infusi

Nate never disappoints

Just when you think that Nate Temple's life couldn't get any crazier, well, there you go, thinking again. Nate is the poster boy of "Cheer up, your life could be worse." Luckily, his heart is, usually, in the right place and he has a loyal group of friends who are almost as crazy as he is. In this exciting episode of the Templeverse, Nate and the gang must thwart the attempts of his crazy ancestor and ex-fiance to awaken a sleeping god in their bid for revenge. As usual, ev

How does this series score so many 4 and 5-star reviews?!? The ONLY thing that it has going for it is its easy readability and shallow entertainment value. I mean, it's 6 books in and I still occasionally think 'hmm, maybe it's time to read the next one,' only to get frustrated and angry at the terrible cliches, plot holes, and oh-so-convenient happenstance that helps our clueless bumbling Nate (who's always the last person to figure out what's going on) out of a dilemma that's been carefully an ...more

Warning: this book ends in a cliffhanger!
It was to some degree entertaining but the fillers , which made up the main bulk of the book, were repetitive and the supposedly big mystery behind Indi's behavior was not only extremely lame but could have been state at any point of the story in less than 20 seconds! Whiteout the need to act oh so mysterious!!!

Silvers has pressed determinedly for continued growth and escalation for his characters, and each book shows him pushing higher and going further each time to the point where he doesn't even attempt to meet the standard of his prior novels but pushes past them to set the bar anew. Tiny Gods is the most violently chaotic one yet in terms of emotions, questions answered and new questions taking their place left and right as enemies and allies are popping up in droves with little to no true indicat ...more

**This book should come with a health warning!!!** The laugh out loud moments will make you look like a crazy person and the fast pace will have you neglecting your family, household chores and even your personal hygiene.

Tiny Gods is the sixth book in the Nate Temple series and it does not disappoint. In actuality it is faster paced than its predecessors and in my opinion the sarcasm is more plentiful and the funny dialogue more hilarious.

Shayne Silvers is a guy you would want to have a beer wit

This made-up word, Gnossienne (the flash of awareness that you really don't know the people you thought you should know best - from John Koenig's Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows website), is something Nate Temple should be able to relate to fully after the events of Tiny Gods. No doubt some of the revelations he hears are things he should expect given what his life has been like lately, and some are things he has asked for, or at least wants to know, but others he must find as confusing as we do.

Action packed thrill ride

Tiny Gods is my favorite book to date in the series. So many questions answered but so many more left unanswered and new ones unfurled.

It's amazing that this is book 6 and still no signs of the series faultering or going stale. Each book continues to build upon the foundation of Nate's life but retains a fresh story line and expanding characters. He hasn't lost his snark but the stakes have been upped and he has started to resort to drastic measures. I mean come on...whe

All the major characters are all there, including Mad Hatter. Knowing who he really is, oh boy. I think the biggest surprised was - oh my gosh?? Mallory is who, or what?? I was shocked for sure, but I now finally understand why he is so important. Mallory has been with Team Nate since the first book.
It seems that Nate no matter what tries to do the right thing. What a awesome fight/get together was! Like one big pissed off family. Nate finds out more about his family tree. Ex-girlfriend fin

Is war coming? Is Indie his enemy?

Book 6 of the Nate Temple series. Great book. Awesome series.
I just love the characters and the author is super creative and even though it's book 6, the story is ever-changing, there's always a new twist, an unexpected. In this book, we just had a humdinger of a cliffhanger. So once again, I'm excited to start the next book when it's available
I still think the thing I appreciate the most in regards to the author's writing is his ability to incorporate humor.

The Nate Temple series just keeps getting better and better. I have come to love Nate and his team of friends and allies. Mr. Silvers keeps the books funny, sarcastic and moving. Nate is learning he is more than just a wizard, but to what extent? In Tiny Gods, Nate and his friends, family and enemies are not what they always seem to be. Even his parents that are now souls in the Armory may not have been what they seemed to be when they were alive. This book leaves you on a cliff hanger, which ma ...more

So, I have to admit that I a have read these books in somewhat of a frenzy and some of the story lines
from one book to the next get muddled in my brain. But it doesn't matter, because the outcome is
the same. Shayne Silvers has taken somewhat familiar characters and made them Shaynetastic (aka awesome and amazing) I initially started reading this series through kindle unlimited and felt guilty and have gone back and purchased books to ensure that Shayne can support his caffeine habit and continue
