A longer review is coming when I'm on my computer. All I can say right now is thank gods that's over!Later:To be absolutely honest, the only reason I finished this book is because I paid for it, and it took me over three months to get through it. If it had been fanfic I came across on the web, I would have stopped reading it right after Dean came up with the bright idea to raise Sam from Hell using the Necronomicon. You know, that book mentioned by HP Lovecraft, the guy that Dean knew nothing ab [...]

My boys how I love you these knock-off, tie-in novels not so much. If the publishers behind these books had any sense, they would mine some of the stellar fanfiction that exists out there for this series: yeah, some fanfiction is painful and embarrassing dreck but there's an impressive amount that's written with love, passion and talent. Those stories are so much more there. They don't feel forced or gimmicky but natural and real. There's depth and emotion (inspired by what show delivers on a c [...]

SPOILERS for season 6 of Supernatural, but not for the book!This book can be judged by its cover. I always hate the Supernatural promos/covers/etc and usually it's a matter of ignoring the cover and knowing the glory inside, but this one really is cheesy. (Sam and Dean are beautiful and wonderful but the cover is still terrible)As a big fan of the series, I wanted to check to see if any of the books were any good. This one stood out to me as the one with the most potential. (A whole book of Dean [...]

Well I am rating this in terms of other tv tie in type books, knowing full well that they are not literary masterpieces.This book could have been a 4 star if only the author did not put in so many unbelievable pop culture references. I just can't imagine Sam or Dean spouting all of those lines. I also think that the characterization of Lisa was way off. The one other thing that bothered me was the horrible editing job. There were words misspelled and added where they were not supposed to be.Othe [...]

I've learned by now that TV tie-in books, especially while the show is still on air, don't take any chances or enrich the characters' stories. Despite that, I read this book because it claimed to tell us about Dean's "lost" year in between seasons 5 & 6.I found it groan-inducing and all too often representative of the worst part of the show -- the misogyny. I mean, the term "female trickery" pretty much says it all.

Very put-downable. Not just an uninteresting "Supernatural" story but an uninteresting story all together. Full of typos, too. I have never read a book with so many typos.

I am not going to lie, I bought this book purely because I am a fan girl.Ignoring the fan girl in me, the book was okay. Not great, but not terrible. The characters were the ones I have known and loved for years, and the storyline wasn't awful. Didn't match with the television show, but not awful. The whole idea of Dean looking for the 'Necronomicon' was weird, considering he had no idea that it existed in Season 6, and the book is set after Season 5. However, the idea of the Campbell family in [...]

MWUAHAHAHA. IT'S MINE. ALL MINE. Well, the library's. BUT MINE TEMPORARILY. The lost year. The most tragic year there ever was. Well, sort of, ish, not exactly, BUT STILL QUITE HEARTBREAKING. Later:Okay, well. That was a disappointment. I've read far, far better fanfic. Plus, I'm not sure anyone goes into an SPN novel - about the MISSING YEAR, no less - wanting to know anything about Campbell ancestors. I skipped over those portions because I just wanted Sam and Dean angst. But since Sam and Dea [...]

Unfortunately, this was one of the worst books I've read in quite a while. I love Supernatural and it's stunning to me that someone who works on the show could screw it up so badly. Almost every word of dialogue coming out of Dean's mouth was a bad joke - it was truly bizarre. Never once did I actually laugh at these "jokes." And the idea that Samuel and Sam are working in the same town as Dean and somehow Dean never picks up on the giant white van following him around everywhere is ridiculous. [...]

I've read good Supernatural books. This isn't one of them.Rebecca Dessertine clealy can't write and she's really bad at story-telling. And don't even get me started on that horrible, weird end. Absolutely no. Don't read it if you can avoid it. The only good thing I found in it is that at least the beginning made me like Lisa. If Dessertine wouldn't have transformed her into something utterly stupid in the end I would even have started loving her. But no. For someone who should know the character [...]

If there was a zero star rating, I would have given that. I wasn't expecting much, but this fell short. I looked forward to reading about Salem, an area I know well. Clearly this author has never been there because her spacing of sites was so off. Write what you know, if you don't research it, please just leave it out.The boat fiasco was unforgivable and as out of place as every Batman movie with too many villains. I could go on but honestly, it's not worth it. I'm not even sure why I finished t [...]

The story of this one is rather weak. You'd think that someone who works for Eric Kripke and who has written for the show would be able to write a halfway decent book, but you'd be sadly disappointed. I'm not a fan of soulless Sam and having to read about him just slowed the story down too much. Also, I find it highly unlikely that Dean would take Lisa and Ben on a hunting trip that would potentially endanger them. The last book Dessertine wrote wasn't great, but it was better than this one. I r [...]

This was actually the first "Supernatural" tie-in book that I read. It nearly kept me from reading the rest of the series because the writing itself was so poor. I was intrigued by the thought of finding out how Dean spent his year without Sam. The plot did turn out to be interesting, but the actual word craft of the story itself is easily the weakest of the tie-in series so far. For fans of the television series this is an interesting aside if they are already reading the tie-in novels, but it [...]

Read this a while ago and let me just say there is so many things wrong with this one. The characters don't read as the characters, Lisa comes off as flat and the random jumps the author makes just to try to move the plot along are forced. For being the companion book between season 5 and 6, I feel like a great opportunity was missed by miles and am sad to have seen this book get approved.

I don't read novels based on tv series I like, and this book illustrates almost all of tbe reasons why. The plot is all over the place and the characterization is thin. Instead of fleshing out the characters, the author depends too much on the fact that I know them from the show. I was attracted to this book because it dealt with the year that Sam and Dean were apart AND the Salem witch trials. I wont be reading any more of these books.

Ugh, another "I couldn't finish it".Even for soulless!Sam it was OOC in my opinion and I can't believe that Dean would raise Lucifer in order to save Sam. Not in the way it seems to be happen in this book. Sorry. Once again the book written by an insider of the show is the one that feels the most OOC to me.

Clunktastic writing style, or maybe its more accurate to say it lacked any style whatsoever. No tension, no rhythm, nothing. It was like reading a book report from a high schooler. Sorry SPN, I <3 you but not that much.

In my opinion what makes this supernatural book so good, is Rebecca (the author) knows the Supernatural series and characters inside and out, which makes every sentence feel like watching an episode of the show.Witches and Winchesters now that's a combination.

all around upsetting book. it was just really sad or confusing all the time. I felt like there was no plot at all. the first prologue was cool sounding but then it went super downhill from there. The writing quality of most of this series aren't that good anyway - you can tell it's a TV tie in and not a real book. the first two I liked the best but the rest aren't the same. and to make things even worse i don't even have hard copies of the next few so we'll see how i tolerate that. usually these [...]

One Year Gone is different from other SN books in the series as it's the only one to deal with Sam after his return from Hell, and before he and Dean are reunited. This book is good and bad, the good is the over all story, the bad are obvious typo's, and I'm the worst at grammar and spelling. Now very mild spoilers will follow.The best part of the book is the HISTORY, yes history from Salem (fictional). I love reading the history of the Winchester's and Campbells. This book has some great histor [...]

Great book! This falls in the season where Sam is supposed to be in Hell and Dean is with Lisa and Ben. Dean takes Lisa and Ben on "vacation" to Salem. He wants to find a witch and a book to see if he can raise Sam from Hell. We know that Sam is actually back from Hell, but he has not told Dean. Samuel makes an appearance in this book as well. The only negative, it has a bunch of errors and typos.

To be honest I found this book hard to get through. While the storyline is good and I enjoy the concept, I found the parts with Sam lacking. At the end of the book everyone also seemed to 'know' what Dean was thinking without him saying or doing anything. I found the the last 20 pages rushed. I hope the next on the list Coyote's Kiss is better.

It's interesting to see the inside of soulless Sam's head and I really like seeing Dean be a sneaky S.O.B. with his outward "Family vacation yay!" while secretly plotting to use magic to raise Lucifer, and thereby Sam, from the cage. I always enjoy a little subterfuge by one Dean Winchester. Sam being soulless took a little getting used to, even on the show I wasn't crazy about seeing Sam's character act completely un-Sam like and this book was just as painful for me. I know Sam had no soul, but [...]

DNF 54%This book is so utterly boring and badly written. How these writers can be such bad writers as to lose the interest of readers who are already emotional invested in the characters and story is beyond me. How did they get to publishing stage?

This is the first of the series of Supernatural books I have read and I must say, I absolutely loved it. I was very impressed and even though I am a huge fan of the show, I dare to say it may be a little better than a couple of episodes. It was a very nice insight to the one whole year that Sam was hunting with his grandfather Samuel and I loved the fact that Lisa and Ben played their fair part throughout the book as well. I've always thought that they were two characters that, in my opinion, ar [...]
