Obsidian Son

This is the first book in Temple Chronicles by Shayne Silvers. The book is basically an urban-based fantasy thriller. It’s also much of a man’s kind of fantasy novel.

It seems the hero in this novel has it all: super wizard powers, vast wealth along with an attitude which one might take as conceited, comical or it would just be referred to as arrogant. Nate is a relatively young man with powers. Life is going on well his
2 best friends, the FBI agent and the Normal, non-magical kind of person. Nate decided to avoid the family of the mega business and instead runs his own bookstore. He is buying special things for his clients and makes huge profits. However, when he discovers that his late parents might actually have been killed, Nate is so much is determined to find out why and who actually did it.

Obsidian Son is one of the fantasy novels that readers will certainly love for several reasons. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a guy who has the sheer audacity of going cow-tipping a very old, a very wise and extremely powerful Minotaur? After this, there were the were-dragons that showed up with some bones to pick up and they actually seem to be belonging to Nate. Wait, there’s still more. It seems that the lives and fate of St. Louis residents lies in the powerful hands of Nate Temple, our wayward wizard in this novel

You will certainly admit, the snark and humor factor runs pretty high for this novel, although Nate might be a bit somewhat of an arse as the story unfolds. Besides that, this is a very good story. The book filled up with the over-the-top actions, creatures and beasts of myths and nightmares. Obsidian Son is a very-elusive and at the same time deadly “book.” You don’t have to bring Nate Temple in the 21st century since his general attitude towards women is just as shallow as having a creek bed in Mojave. Nonetheless, the humor meter still run, because of Nate. This is a fairly fast-paced novel with lots of entertainment value.

To sum it up, the novel presents a super story along with a spin on the dragons that you’ve probably not come across ever before and it’s indeed interesting. However, this book possibly has one of the strangest beginnings to a mystery novel. This is just one deft misdirection from the author.

Obsidian Son is a refreshing difference to typical tales in the same genre. You will certainly enjoy reading it. After reading this book, you will be looking forward to the next book in this amazing series.
