Blood Debts: Nate Temple Series Book 2 Kindle Edition
A Wizard, an Angel, and a Horseman of the Apocalypse walk into a bar…
The ancient pact between mankind, Heaven, and Hell has been broken. And Nate Temple’s quest for vengeance may have just kicked off Armageddon. So, time to grab a stiff drink…or maybe four.
Already plagued with sinister night terrors that could qualify him as a card-carrying psychopathic insomniac, Nate can barely even manage to put his pants on in the morning, let alone pick teams for the Apocalypse.
But when he’s framed as a demon sympathizer, condemned by the Armies of Heaven, and hunted down by both his allies and the Four Horsemen, this wizard doesn’t think it can get any worse…
Then they take away his magic. And a wizard without magic stands no chance against the forces of Heaven and Hell…
Mardi Gras in St. Louis is really going to suck this year…
If you like Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, Steve McHugh, Michael Anderle, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Shannon Mayer, or K.F. Breene, you won't be able to put down the highly addictive Nate Temple Series.
“Shayne Silvers, Jim Butcher, and Kevin Hearne are easily my favorite Urban Fantasy Authors. In that order.” — Michael Anderle, Amazon Top 25 Bestselling Author

I gave it three stars because the characters are interesting (Nate's a bit of a jerk, but that's intentional), the plot is nonstop and the stakes are as high as they could be, but I am not going to be able to continue unless the later books benefited from an actual editor. Read it if you love action and interesting worldbuilding, avoid like the plague if misused words and grammar bother you .... and if both are true for you I don't know what to tell you.
Even though the story felt like it went from Nate And Pals, to Nate By Himself, the world it was set in broadened. More mythologies (and religions, depending on your belief in angels/demons) were introduced and woven into an already complex fabric. Even though it was set in the modern age, it fit well, and it was fun to see some of the ancient bad guys bemused by our technologies.
Without giving too much away, the ending was even more exciting in this second installment than even the first! I read the second half in a single day.
There were some typos in the story, and a few grammar errors that could have been tightened, however they did not detract too much from the story. The sudden extreme jealousy that Othello displays a little way in seemed out of character to me, though that could also be my general dislike for anything smacking of a love triangle. Beyond those minor points, however, I found the book immensely satisfying on all fronts, and I couldn't recommend it enough! I am definitely looking forward to book three!

In the first book, Nate seemed a bit childish but I thought (hoped) that his character would grow in the next book. Nope. Still shallow & childish, as were all the characters. Nate's arrest was laughable and painted both the police and FBI as stupid and moronic. Their reasons for holding him were laughable - c'mon Shayne give your readers a break and stop treating them like halfwits. Some authors try too hard to be funny and fail. This book was hardly laugh out loud. At the most it raised a small smile in a couple of places. I also found it hard to get going.
I was disappointed in this and don't think I will be buying the rest of the books in this series. If they were £0.99 I might - but at £3+ I don't think so. They are not worth it.
A brilliant read.
In this novel, it seems like the whole world is turning against Nate and will have to overcome insurmountable odds, as well as persistent night terrors, if he plans on living a few more years. How can he do this when his fellow wizards have turned on him and Heaven and Hell have stopped playing footsies and turned their attention his way? With his usual charm and sly humour, of course.
This book was awesome, I loved the humour, the characters and all the supernatural elements. This is definitely a series that will keep you hooked until the very end.
