"Tons of twists and turns that keep it exciting while staying true to the "Supernatural" universe. Fans of the TV series and even those who have never watched the show will enjoy Carved in Flesh. If you can't get enough of the Winchester brothers and the world of the supernatural, then this is the book for you!" --Dread Central

"As good as any episode, keeping the tone just right." --Trash Mutant review

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A novel based on the tv show Supernatural, which is about two brothers who hunt demons and monsters across the backroads and small towns of America.

It tells an all new story for the two main characters, that hasn't been done before in any other medium.

It is set in between the twelfth and thirteenth episodes of the show's seventh season. Thus anyone who hasn't seen it up to that point shouldn't read the book till they have, because you will get spoilers.

Anyone who hasn't seen the show at all might be even more confused. But since you're only likely to read this if you are a fan of the show, that shouldn't be a problem.

The book runs for three hundred and two pages, and is divided into fifteen chapters.

It sees Sam and Dean visit a town in Ohio, where there have been unexplained deaths at the hands of a mysterious big black dog. Who is not the only strange creature that has been seen there.

There turns out to be far more to the creatures than meets the eye. And with a strange man in town who is using locals on a quest for power, great danger awaits.

Franchise novels can never do anything to change the continuity of the programme. So the book writer has to come up with something that feels like a missing episode of the show, but also works well on the printed page.

The story of the brothers hunting a strange dog could easily be insubstantial, but there are enough extra plot elements here to make it all work very well.

The dialogue of the two main characters is absolutely spot on, and you can imagine the two actors saying the lines quite easily.

Supernatural - Carved in Flesh (Supernatural (Titan Books))

I liked it.

I thought I wasn't going to at the start as the first third was more about the set-up, introducing new characters, explaining past occurrences and frankly not much Sam and Dean but from there on in the whole thing gathered pace and turned out to be a good read.

The story that Tim Waggoner has written fits well within the Supernatural cannon. It reads like a standalone episode whilst still referring to the season seven overall mytharc and although his writing of the brothers seemed awkward and stilted at the beginning as we get deeper into the adventure his characterisation settles. Thus managing later in the book to capture the brother's relationship; the banter and silent communication are there and he conveys their concern for each other without mawkishness or overstatement. On those later pages are the Sam and Dean that we love, the strength and courage, the humour and the absurdness. Dean's names for the unfortunate creatures are hilarious.

The other characters in the novel are also well drawn, given personalities and motivations which are both realistic and sympathetic but while I felt that maybe the writer indulged a little too much in their backgrounds at the beginning I did find myself drawn into their stories, understanding why they were influenced by `the bad guy' and, in the end, genuinely moved by their predicaments.

Plot wise Carved Flesh is good but slow to start introducing several different threads at once which seem to meander rather than lead anywhere.

Apart from it being a good way to deal with my supernatural addiction while the show was on . It's mid- season break, it was well written and highly enjoyable, we'll worth the money spent and a good read

I love Supernatural the TV programme, so that helps when reading a book about it. I enjoy this book because it didn't digress from the characters and how they would act and react in situations...

Do you love Frankenstein? Then you should definitely read this because Sam and Dean are fighting mad scientist who in the end will show that is much more than a scientist. Another great story in Supernatural world.

I absolutely loved this Supernatural story. It had monsters created from a combination of science and magic, human tragedy, a mad scientist, and some seriously gross bits. We also find out more about Sam and Dean's childhood through a story that echoes their current case. It's set during Season Seven of the TV series, so contains references to the on-going plot.

Carved in Flesh sees the Winchester brothers in Brennan, Ohio - usually a quiet uneventful type of place. Not somewhere you'd expect to find an overly aggressive creature that resembles a dog (or several dogs actually) attacking local residents and leaving behind empty husks. Dean's concerned they are wasting their time chasing after some `Frankenmutt' when the real danger is the Leviathan, and Dick Roman in particular. But, ever the smart guy, Sam reckons they might be on the trail of something new, and therefore of use against their most recent nemesis.

I've read a few Frankenstein-inspired stories recently, so was curious to see where this would take the theme. It combines several strands, including a bereaved doctor, a very old practitioner of the black arts, and some cutting edge medical technology. The dog is just a foretaste of the main event. Sam and Dean have to figure out a way to destroy the revenant creature, an experiment that doesn't go smoothly. Sam sustains an injury, but whether it's that or an increase in his hallucinations, he's definitely not firing on all cylinders. He's majorly sluggish, and keeps glimpsing someone off in the distance. As usual, he keeps his problems to himself, until forced to talk. Will the brothers never learn to share their worries?

Overall, I thought the story was exciting, with some good new creepiness.
