It's almost Nate's birthday, so, he can cry if he wants to. That is, if he lives to see it....
Because a lot of people want him dead: his fiancée, his long-lost ancestor, the good wizards, the dark wizards, and.... Look, it's easier to list who doesn't want to kill him.
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.
And with Achilles angry at Nate for crashing his fight night, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse breathing down his neck, gods hiding behind mortal skins, and an accidental shifter infection with a cheerful Swedish male dancer, Nate has his hands full.
But when his enemies decide to wake a god, the only way for Nate to level the playing field is to open an early birthday present from the Mad Hatter... and that's when he finds out that nothing is ever simple, and that no one was ever who he thought they were all these years.

Nate Temple delivers again!
We expect heros to have some humanity but at what price? How can we empathize with our heroes, when they are not being consistence with their characters? For instance, Rumpelstiltskin’s reeked untold death and havoc in Nate’s battle with him. After dismissing the ideal of out-right killing him upon capture, Nate decided that a more fitting death would be to make him serve the Mad Hatter. So why should Nate feel shamed because Rumpelstiltskin spirt has been broken?
This was an extremely emotional story for Nate and Indie. The depth of her hurt caused catastrophic emotional upheaval to people who were once her friends. If you have followed this series, you remember that Nate never wanted Indie to become involved in the fight. But she was determined. Once she acquired powers she inserted herself in the battle. In doing so, her loved ones became a target and she became an insane bitch. As close as her and Nate were, why in all her pop up visits into Chateau Falco did they not take a few seconds and talk? Why does the talk happen in the middle of a battle when they, or rather Indie, is ready to annihilate Nate?
The time has come for Nate’s parents to move on. He discovers what many kids must … parents are fallible. When faced with having a family fall out, ostracizing them, or accepting them as humans, what do you do? Despite losing his parents, Nate’s family does acquire more family.
Nate’s entourage now have lives/responsibilities outside of being at Nate’s beck and call. This has added more story lines and characters to the story. It is exciting to see how other paranormal fights. From the title of the book, yes there are other gods in the story. With the stakes being so high everyone joins the battle. Yes, Ganesh joins the battle.
The growth of all the characters and the expanse of the paranormal world is outstanding. With each novel Shayne Slivers, the author, has built a story that is impossible to drop. Every story has added a new element.
I was disappointed that Nate is no longer a master. As a master, he presented an indomitable character, which cause all opponents to pause. Do not count him out. There are always tricks in is basket.
***spoiler*** Chateau Falco is sentient and deadly. This is the perfect opportunity to show her capabilities. As a leader, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your defenses are set. Twice Nate neglects to set the house wards. Instead of the battle being stopped at the gates of his home, it rings the door bell.
This is a great installment to the Nate Temple story.

The rollercoaster continues
Loved this book!!
After everything Nate's been through, he can't seem to catch a break but holds his own once again.
Shayne Silvers keeps you on the edge of your seat with the action and the humor laced throughout may cause bursts of uncontrolled laughter. Joel Richards captures every emotion and character well.
