Book Summary

A city that doesn’t believe in magic. Bloodthirsty weredragons. Good thing this reckless playboy has superpowers…

It’s been said that monsters cry when a good man goes to war. But they should run screaming like little school girls when that man is secretly a wizard, and maybe not necessarily good…

Nate Temple’s all-consuming quest to avenge his parents is temporarily put on hold when shape-shifting dragons invade St. Louis. And perhaps cow-tipping the Minotaur for answers might not have been Nate’s smartest opening move, because now every flavor of supernatural thug from our childhood nightmares is gunning for him. Nate learns that the only way to save his city from these creatures is to murder his best friend…


Nate’s choice will throw the world and his own conscience into cataclysmic chaos: avenge his parents or become a murderer to save his city. Because to do either, he’s going to have to show the world that magic is very, very real, and that monsters are very, very hungry… To survive, he might just need to take a page from the book, How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters.


If you like Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, or Patrick Rothfuss, you will LOVE the first installment of The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller series.


Obsidian Son - I was immediately taken by its strong title and vibrant cover. But what does it mean? I spared no expense and downloaded the novel to Kindle. I was not disappointed
Hooking the reader from page one, an incredible opening has one intrigued and even confused and yet begging for more. Anticipation abounds while fantasy meets reality in equal measure.

The story unfolds as told through the eyes of its hero, the complex and funny wizard-man Nate Temple - intelligent, informed, flawed and a tad eccentric. Nate's inescapably endearing sense of humor and fatalistic wit veritably sings throughout the tale and cannot help but win the reader's heart.

Co-characters in their various guises - foremost the shape-shifting sidekick Gunnar - orbit Nate's command like colorful moths to a flame and are superbly debuted along with entertaining dialogue through the emergent plot and sub-plots.Silvers' delicious imagination has created ground-breaking magical beings that are capable of `special effects' the likes of which have never been seen before. As if character and magic were not compelling enough, the book spills much more - suspenseful drama, mystery, `spare no expense' fast paced action; it is violent, bloody, erotic, sexy and variously romantic.

Harnessing a powerful combination of genres and alter-dimensions, Silvers thrives on attention to detail, and achieves it most elegantly...
