Author’s Summary

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.

Short Description

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


Cow-tip the Minotaur.

Obsidian SON

You can't go wrong with this series. It's fun, exciting, and makes magical characters seem perfectly normal in todays world. The characters come to life and you become so immersed in their stories that you can't wait to devour the next one. Nate Temple is snarky, smart, handsome, and flawed- the perfect wizard. Great fun, I highly recommend!

Obsidian son

I cannot recommend this series highly enough, the magic, the twists and turns, add in the sarcasm of the main character, mythological creatures and storybook characters seen in a whole new light. This leads to a series of books leading you begging for more, and the type of grief that you can only feel for a book series as each episode ends, that a highly skilled writer can bring. This is a world I would love to live in, I mean how many main characters can cow tip the Minotaur!

Great paranormal science fiction without a doubt

The Nate Temple series is one that will keep you on the edge of your seat, interspersed with sarcasm and laughter. Obsidian Son grabbed me from the first few pages and carried me through with unexpected twists and turns to the very end. If you are a fan of the paranormal, including a bit of every species then you don't want to miss this series by Shayne Silvers..
