Phantom Queen Diaries series by Shayne Silvers

Authors Shayne Silvers and Cameron O’Connell write the “Phantom Queen Diaries” series of urban fantasy novels. The series began publication in the year 2018, when “Whiskey Ginger” was released. The books are set in the “Temple Verse”
Quinn MacKenna is a black magic arms dealer from Boston’s mean streets. She knows how to fight, drink, and steal dangerous artifacts. Not for money, but for favors. This is because she has only wanted a single thing, it is a secret so well-guarded and dangerous nobody will give it to her. A ticket into the Land of the Fae so she can locate her dad and get some answers about her past. At one time, her mother was a member of the IRA.

“Whiskey Ginger” is the first novel in the “Phantom Queen Diaries” series and was released in the year 2018. Everything was going just fine for Quinn MacKenna. Until she stole from Nate Temple accidentally.

She doesn’t ask questions of her clients, just favors, hoping it will eventually add up to get her what she desperately wants. With her unique ability to nullify magic, the world’s most lethal artifacts, or the clients that demand them, aren’t anything that impress her all that much.

All of this changes when she robs Nate Temple and finds she is in a much deeper world of conspiracies and monsters than she ever realized existed. Because Nate Temple and his buddies are not the only things to be afraid of. Now she must worry about his enemies too.

This is a fast paced read with tons of fun and mysteries, enough action and humor throughout. These characters have their own distinct voice and identity. The characters interact with each other well and the story line is very well done. It all combines to make for a captivating, entertaining, and engaging read from start to finish.

“Cosmopolitan” is the second novel in the “Phantom Queen Diaries” series and was released in the year 2018. It is time Quinn MacKenna pay off a debt, to Nate Temple, after she robbed him a few weeks back. New York City is never going to be the same.

Her absolution might have come with some strings attached. Like heading to the Big Apple to steal a lethal and mysterious artifact for Grimm Tech. Strictly off the books.

It doesn’t take her too long to discover that she is not the only one after this magical whatsit, and that all the monsters in New York play for keeps. The keyword is play. They have all heard about this little ginger from Boston, and they want to know if she tastes nearly as sweet as she looks.

That is before she learns that both Heaven and Hell have joined this game. Maybe it’s time Quinn locate some allies from St. Louis. Or the Brooklyn Bridge might become a memory. Right along with Quinn.

The writing in this one flows faster and smoother, even improving on the readers vision of these characters and how scenes play out. Fans found that this novel has a perfect story line and the action is non-stop. The pacing here is still as fast as possible, slowing just enough for some development and introspection on Quinn’s part while she goes from one event to another.

“Old Fashioned” is the third novel in the “Phantom Queen Diaries” series and was released in the year 2018. Quinn MacKenna discovers the cure for a blinding hangover is rather simple. Stay in bed, and don’t answer your freaking door.

Otherwise, you could find yourself getting roped into a murder investigation with a psycho trying to rewrite the “Twelve Days of Christmas” as a holiday homicide special. You could be forced to dodge bullets with a Valkyrie, called on to rescue an ex-international spy, or to go take on a power-hungry Fae that is intent on freezing everything that he touches. Hypothetically speaking, anyway.

In hindsight, snorting up crushed aspirin in some dirty alley would have been a much smarter choice. Especially when Quinn learns the only way to get a hold of the answers she is looking for is by sampling some hallucinogenic and magically-infused flowers. The fact that somebody is waiting for her on the other side of her out-of-body experience. They have been waiting for quite a long time.

Each of these characters is well written and believable, and the stories are tied together over three books well, but are still their own story. Readers like Quinn and find her to be badass, vulnerable, and funny. This is a fun ride that readers cannot wait to continue in future installments.

“Dark and Stormy” is the fourth novel in the “Phantom Queen Diaries” series and was released in the year 2018. Quinn finally gets a Fae-Cation, something she has always wanted. Boston now faces annihilation, however.

A bloody killing spree in the Land of the Fae with her vampire bestie should’ve been nothing but fun and games for Quinn, that is, until she actually learns the shocking truth about her past and the choice she was born to make. It is a choice that threatens to bring her very world to a screeching stop. This is because the price is too high.

A trusted friend betrays her, unleashing the storm of the century, as well as an army of lethal and ancient monsters upon Boston Harbor, she has to decide whether she is going to save herself or those that she cares about.

This ex-black magic arms dealer has to call in every single favor that she has ever earned. Even then, there is a strong chance that she will not be nearly strong enough to stop the Eye at the center of this storm from taking away everything that she has ever loved.

The only way she can save Boston is to become something that is even worse. What she was born to become.

Readers found the story to be rather solid, and tough to put down. The characters draw the reader in to these stories, while the twists and turns don’t stop.
