Publisher's Summary

Meet Quinn MacKenna, a black magic arms dealer from the mean streets of Boston. 

Everything was going fine for Quinn…until she accidentally stole from Nate Temple. 

She knows how to drink, fight, and steal dangerous magical artifacts - but not for money. For favors. Because all her life she’s wanted only one thing - a secret so dangerous and well-guarded that no one will give it up. 

A ticket to the Land of the Fae so she can find her dad and finally get some answers about her past. 

So she doesn’t ask questions of her clients, only favors, hoping that they will eventually add up to get her what she so desperately desires. And with her unique ability to nullify magic, the world’s deadliest artifacts - or the clients who demand them - don’t really impress her very much. 

But that all changes when she accidentally robs the infamous Nate Temple, and finds herself in a much deeper world of monsters and conspiracies than she ever knew existed. Because Nate Temple and his friends aren’t the only things to be afraid of. 

Now she has to worry about his enemies, too....

The newest antihero in the worldwide best-selling Nate Temple Universe by Shayne Silvers. Join Cameron O’Connell and Shayne at the literary bar to sip a dirty cocktail of feisty Irish brogue - with an unhealthy splash of monsters - today!

If you like KF Breene, Shannon Mayer, CN Crawford, Ilona Andrews, or Patricia Briggs, you will love the first installment of the Phantom Queen Diaries.

*Over half a million readers have been pleasured by the Temple Verse novels. Now it’s your turn....*

Hooked on Quinn

Absolutely love the witty banter and the accent. But where is the rest of the series? Really disappointed I won't be able to listen to the rest of the series after such a great start. Wish I hadn't started this series since I can't finish it.

Fun adventure with an Irish accent

Amanda Leigh Cobb was the only reason I’ve decided to buy this book. She’s my favorite narrator so I’ve decided to give this a try even if I thought I wouldn’t enjoy the plot or the characters. Let me tell you that it was fun, I didn’t regret it and now I’m on a second book. It was a fast paced adventure with an interesting main character. Not so much for a plot there but I suspected what I was going into. If it wasn’t for a narrator i would probably stop at the first book, so I’m glad that I’m listening, because for me it’s like a radio theatre with Amanda’s abilities to change voices and accents))

awesome

absolutely love this author, she gives Quinn this fantastic English accent but pulls it back for the other characters, which my sure is not easy to do but she pulls it off. I love this character and the narrator who portrayed her

best Irish voice yet!

the reading is fantastic! the story is worthy a good read. being boston Irish character, I get the language..... but it also makes it unfit for me to share with my kiddos who enjoy Shayne Silvers stuff with me in most cases. that's the only reason my overall isnt 5 stars

I really liked it. Good urban fantasy book.

Well written story, with great narration. This was my first Shayne Silver's book, as well as Cameron O'Connell. I enjoyed the story, and was very much pleased with the quality narration. I look forward to finding more books by these authors, and Narrator. Especially for this particular series.

Couldn't stand it

I am a ready of urban fantasy, and I had hopes for this series, but couldn't get past the first half. The lead character is a sociopath and the author describes VERY gory fight scenes that she's taking a bath. Could not connect with any of it.

Good story +

Good story + character interplay, but it's simpler & the pace is constant & faster. Quite a bit of real life humor, but it's not goofy. Little magic or magical descriptions, but just enough to make a difference. Almost no romance. Performance is good. Main character has a simple but potent power, to negate magics or powers by touch. Setting is this world, with an underground or hidden magical side. Could of been great with more magic & more magical info / descriptions.

Perfect Narrator

I struggled reading whiskey Ginger. Someone suggested I try the audible. The narrator makes Quinn come to life. I enjoyed every chapter and all the action. I am an avid reader but I love audible too. Some stories just translate better in audio. I can't wait to listen to the next one.

Absolute flawless perfection.

Seriously you do not want to miss out on the story itself, the amazing characters, or most importantly the glue that binds it all together. That glue being the exquisite narration. She unquestionably made this book the "must have" that it is in audio form.
