Synopsis:

Dean and Sam, the [in]famous Winchester brothers, are doing a favor for Ash, the computer genius who hunts demons online. Ash’s friend is being haunted by a ghost and it is escalating.

Along the way, the boys come across a series of murders that seem to tie in to a resurrection ceremony based on the stories and poems of Poe.

My Thoughts:

This story takes place during Season 2, I believe, which needs to be taken into account since that is all the author has to deal with when it comes to characterization.

This would have been a typical 2 part tv episode. 2 storylines that aren’t related except by location.  This story was nothing special, the Poe aspect felt very tacked on. It felt like it was added for the “Urban Fantasy” side of things, like a ghost haunting a washed up bar rockstar wasn’t enough? But at the time, the tv show was focusing on urban legends, etc, so it makes sense.

If this had been my introduction to Supernatural, I wouldn’t be bothering with any more. But like most novelizations of movies and shows, the books never live up to the show. So if you like Supernatural then I do recommend this. I did like it enough to put the next book on my TBR list.

    I’ve read a handful of these, they’re pretty decent. Nothing spectacular, but if you’re a fan of the show you’ll like em well enough. The authors usually have things down pat, even to the end-of-episode-Sam-and-Dean-heart-to-heart.
