by Joe Schreiber – A bloody adventure in the Deep South, with a higher-than-TV-episode body count, this novel was a quick and enjoyable read. It’s book 5 in the series, set early in season 5 (if you’re relating it to the TV series), but the author didn’t specify exactly where. Certainly it’s after the brothers have started to feel close once again, with Dean’s trust of Sam still fragile, but definitely back.
The author absolutely “gets” these characters, even Castiel, who plays a part in this story. Schreiber portrays their voices beautifully and gets their reactions exactly right, never leaving the reader questioning his familiarity with and respect for the show that so many millions of people love… often to a rabid degree.
Good job, sir! And thanks for giving us a new-to-us adventure in the SPN world. (finished 8/31/14)
