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

Best series EVER

Where does Obsidian Son rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Let me start by saying please please please give this book a chance, despite the narrator. When you hear him pronounce "Minotaur", you will immediately be tempted to stop listening. Struggle through and enjoy the story, you will not regret it. I have never read a book I loved as much as this, and I read at least a book a week.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Nate, Nate, NATE! Nate is what you get when you combine Dresden with Tony Stark. All the wit of Iron Man, with magic instead of a super suit. I can't remember ever reading a book that had me actually laughing out loud, but Nate Temple has had me rolling on multiple occasions.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Gods, myths, monsters, folklore...Just everyday life for billionaire Nate Temple. When myths come to life and threaten the world as we know it, Nate is there to save the day...and make you laugh out loud at the methods he chooses to bring these beings down a notch

Promising Start to Series New to Audio!


This is not my normal genre, but seriously a girl only take so much romance. While considering this audio, I went ahead, and checked out the reviews on Amazon, and at the time, there were 546, and roughly 69% of these were five stars, but what really sold me was the publisher's reference to Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne and Patrick Rothfuss. Love all three authors; however, after listening to this story, it reminded me a lot of the Jonathan Shade series....but only better.

Obsidian Son starts out strong, and really grabs the listener! I loved the beginning, it was hilarious, and all throughout the story, there's lots of scenes with humor, action, suspense, and OMG there is even a little romance (Ok, not the kind I'm used, but still it was there.)

It never fails to amaze me how two people can listen to the exact same thing, and hear something totally different, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I thought Marcio's performance was spot-on. I loved how he narrated the dialogue, and portrayed the all characters, especially the Minotaur. I've listened to several audios narrated by Marcio's (that's how I came across this story), and I normally have to speed up his narration to 1.25.

The Down and Dirty: Was this an intense, non-stop, action packed story from start to finish? No! * Was it entertaining, fun and had a good balance of action, humor, and suspense, with burst of intense moments? Yes! * Is it worth a credit? Well you know me, I'm greedy with my credits! If you can this on a KU/Whispersync deal, I recommend that! * Would I listen to future stories? Absolutely! And hope they will be released in audio soon!
