This tells an all new story for the characters never before presented in any other medium.
There's some exposition, but not really enough to get those not familiar with the show up to speed. Although since fans of the programme are the only people likely to read this, that's not really a problem.
This book runs for three hundred and fifty five pages. It is divided into sixty four pretty short chapters. Plus a prologue.
It takes place in between the fifth and sixth episodes of the show's seventh season. Thus it actually takes place before the previous novel in this range.
It sees Sam and Dean, along with Bobby, in Nevada. Hunting a monster the like of which they have tangled with once before.
Only there turns out to be a bit more going on that meets the eye. And with the weather in the area getting worse, and other non human dangers to be faced as well, they have a fight to survive on their hands.
For the first quarter of the book you do wonder how the plot is going to make this last for full novel length. But then the writing does manage to spring a good development to do just that. And the surprises do keep coming at just the right points to keep the momentum of the story going. It also does use the medium of prose well by managing a few things that might be beyond the budget of the tv show.
The main characters are pefectly captured. There is a lot of exposition early on to remind you where they were and what they were feeling at this stage in the season. Perhaps a little too much. But that's only a minor complaint.Read more ›
Fresh Meat follows Sam, Dean and Bobby as they investigate a rash of strange deaths in the Tahoe National Forest. The story is well-written and reads like a TV episode of the hit CW series. The handful of new characters that are introduced to help and aid our trio are believable and add something extra to the book.
The plot builds nicely and very much runs like an episode would; at first we think our trio, with the help of fellow hunter Jason, have killed the monster causing the deaths, but when more people go missing, Sam, Dean and Bobby return to town to find the real cause of the mysterious killings.
You don't even need to be a fan of Supernatural to understand what is going on in Fresh Meat; previous story points and characters are explained, but not in a way that would be annoying to someone who already knows who Castiel is or why Bobby's house burnt down.
I only have two complaints with this book; firstly, (on page 127) the writer talks about Sam's hand scar, which comes from an injury sustained when falling on a piece of glass in the first episode of season seven (Meet The New Boss) however, the writer states: "The scar in his hand where Dean had stabbed him..." which is obviously wrong.Read more ›
After the wendigo is dispatched, the Winchesters believe the hunt is over. That is, until they learn that people are still disappearing. Once back in the Tahoe National Forest, the hunters find a mysterious flying creature attacking them. The tall monster looks as though it has a hide of leather and resembles a pterodactyl. But this sly creature can assume human form.
Sam and Bobby head out to find ingredients to make a weapon against their latest foe. Dean and another hunter remain in the area to ward off hikers from entering the creature's territory. When a blizzard strikes the area, Dean must battle the elements as well as the creature. As for Sam and Bobby, they are being ambushed by vampires as they rush to complete the weapon. But once done, they will still have to figure out a way to locate Dean before the creature or one of the avalanches kills him.
**** FOUR STARS! The story starts out like many of the television episodes; the brothers are at the end of a mission, being attacked by a very nasty spirit.Read more ›
