Obsidian Son 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.

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

    The ancient pact between mankind, Heaven, and Hell has been broken. And this upstart wizard's quest for vengeance may have just kicked off Armageddon. So, time for a drink...or maybe two. 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.

    Sharing a beer with Death - one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - really put a few things into perspective for this foul-mouthed billionaire wizard. Like finally strapping on the boots to propose to his girlfriend. But assassination contracts have a way of putting wedding plans on hold. Perhaps permanently. And with the entire wedding party on the bloodthirsty Grimm's hit-list, and his family fortune in jeopardy, Nate realizes they can't run and they can't hide.

    My resume is pretty full: I've cow-tipped the Minotaur, decimated a gang of weredragons, sucker-punched an angel, and ate pancakes with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I've kidnapped one of the most powerful wizards on the planet and slaughtered the Brothers Grimm. I'm kind of a big deal. But I never thought I'd find myself at a crossroads, a pawn in a deadly game that I hadn't known existed, willing to sell my soul to save the life of someone I loved. That's when I learned true fear.

    The Beast Master has come to town, and he's kidnapping shifter kids for his show. But the Queens of Fae also want a little deep-fried wizard for the holidays.

The demon inside of him is getting stronger, fighting for dominance, and only one of them can survive. But when Nate's extorted to rescue a lethal Chimera child from the Beast Master's Circus, Nate's only option is to partner with his inner demon, risking his very soul.

To prevent a shifter-versus-wizard war, Nate steps in to draw a line in the sand, picking a fight with the deadliest magic slingers on the planet... and then he tries to rob them.

    Two old dudes want to kill me. Oh, and one of them is my ancestor.... And after centuries of practice, they’re pretty good at the whole murder thing. But at least they want to kill each other just as badly. Now, I’ve taken down a Greek goddess, worn a Horseman’s mask, and I ride a homicidal unicorn who hates rainbows with a passion. Some might say sending two senior citizens to a permanent retirement home should be a breeze. It ain’t. Because that’s not my biggest concern. One of my friends is in danger, or possibly dying, and I need to get her back before her fiancé kills me.

    Nate Temple has an appointment in Hell. One he can’t reschedule… After recent events, Nate took some much-deserved time off for a little rest and relaxation. But when he finally returns home to attend what should have been a celebration of love, he finds insidious fear infecting the streets of St. Louis. Paranoia. Chaos. Anarchy. It seems every supernatural family in town is sick and tired of Nate and wants to put him in his place. The worst part… all his friends seem to agree.
