Supernatural #1 & #2

Twenty-two years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. In the years after, their father, John, taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America...and he taught them how to kill it.

I am a very big fan of the TV series Supernatural and have been ever since I discovered the series on Netflix earlier this year while writing my thesis. I've watched every single episode and many more than once. A little while back I quite suddenly discovered that books had been written based on the show.

The first book Nevermore takes place in New York City where Sam and Dean are checking out a friend of a friend's haunted house. While there though a macabre crime catches their attention with murders bizarrely linked to the writings of Edgar Allan Poe.

In the second Witch's Canyon book the brothers are checking out the Grand Canyon for recreational reasons, but soon find themselves deeply involved in a mysterious murder spree that occurs every 40 years.

Both books take place in between TV episodes and reads just like an episode themselves. Having such an intimate knowledge of the guys from watching them through 9 series, you the reader and watcher, don't need much information on how they look, you know exactly how they react and behave. They are easy, interesting and fun reads if you're a fan.

Both books have been well written and closely follows the show, there are no sudden surprises in how the characters act. I am very much looking forward to reading more of them and immerse myself deeper into the wonderfully good-looking Supernatural show.

  1. I didn't realise that books has been written about this show! I must confess I've never seen a single episode but people rave about it so much! I'm glad that the adaptation worked well because normally these things don't tend to.
