I don't think Keith DeCandido did as much research on the show as he claims he did in his author's notes in the back of the book. He shows a decided lack of insight into the personalities of both Sam and Dean, in particular, Dean. Hell, he couldn't even get their physical descriptions right! All we get are vague descriptions that could be anybody. Or maybe he just assumed we would know who he was talking about from a few brief lines of text?

The inconsistencies abound in this book. For starters,

Not a bad job on this novel, since it is based off a tv series. Being a fan of the series, I can be a bit critical about staying in character. I am used to movies based on books but this was the opposite. The tv series came first, then this.

This particular story sees the brothers to New York to help out a friend of a friend with a ghost haunting him, calling out "love me." While there, they take on another, darker case. Someone is creating a murder ritual to bring Edgar Allen Poe back to life..

I like the extra things the author threw in - such as the recommended soundtrack at the end of the book. I like that you can tell the author loves the Bronx. I like that the author has the same suppurating mental scars as we all do who have tried to find parking in a large metropolitan area.

On the other hand, descriptions of driving and the mechanics of how to fit a large car into a small space ... let's just say a little goes a long way. Also, the author's Dean is not my Dean. Neither is his Sa

Yes, I read some Supernatural fan fiction, and I thought it was pretty great. So don't you judge me!

The author did a fantastic job of switching between the brothers perspective throughout the story, and captured their personalities and inner monologues pretty perfectly. The plot was a bit predictable - just like the show - and mimicked the show pretty well in terms of pacing, characterization, etc.

Basically I got exactly what I thought I would and I asked my library to order the next in the se

If I had to describe this book in less than ten words:

I've read better fan-fiction.

Seriously. Without a doubt, this is one of the top ten Worst Books I've Ever Read. It was a struggle to get through.

I didn't go into Nevermore expecting much, just a good, fun, stupid read about my latest TV obsession, but I expected the author to at least get Sam and Dean's characterization down. Within the first thirty pages, I was completely horrified by just how "off" they were:

Dean is an idiot whose sole inte

I love Supernatural with all of my being and every little fiber of my heart, so naturally, I ran to this book with open arms. And all in all, it wasn't terrible. But it's really the little things that got at me.

The biggest issue I had: Sammich is not and will never be acceptable.

But it was pretty good, I mean it was basically like reading iffy fanfiction. Let's be real; I read Redemption Road so I've got some pretty high standards. This was alright though. Enjoyable, just not up there. The mom

Okay! So I've been taking a break from the show for a few months now (I'm only on season 3) and I missed these characters so I picked this up. It starts off really refreshing, Sam and Dean seem in character, there's mystery, and it's pretty fun. But then as you get introduced to more and more characters, they completely irked me - in every way. Annoying, stereotypical and...strange. The dialogue was getting more irritating and just felt less and less enjoyable as I went along.

I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of the TV show supernatural so I was super excited when I discovered that there were spin off books for the show.

It scares me when an author decides to write a book based on a hit TV show because I'm afraid that they won't get the characters personality that we know from the TV. And with Nevermore it was a 50/50. At times I thought the author was able to write the characters just how we knew them from the TV show than it seemed like they were new characters or even swit

I make no secret of how much I enjoy the show Supernatural, the characters, and the story and I have also made no secret of my love of the books, by all the different authors that have written for these books since their inception.

This is the first Supernatural story, so it is basically the one that all others are based off of, and this one did not disappoint. With a healthy dose of Poe, and the usual hunting and brotherly bantering that can only be seen in a Supernatural episode, this was a ha

My main complaint about this is the plot itself. The case of the Poe murders was so promising- a person killing people in the ways that the characters in Poe's works have died? I'm in. However, the conclusion was just too simple. I already knew who the killer was even before the brothers started to piece things together, which is not a good thing in mysteries such as this as the key to a good mystery is to make the reader be able to solve it with the character (or after the character has solved ...more

The blurb promises a lot more than you'll get.
You won't be surprised that with a title Nevermore plus a specific setting, it has to be about Poe or his works. Someone is trying to recreate a resurrection ritual killing people in a manner found in Poe's stories and poems. Now, I love Poe and usually when his motifs are used in fiction, I like it. Here, it fell flat. Oh, and boring. Dean calling Sam Sammich (I don't remember that ever happening) and listing every single band and their songs did

In every novel I read, there are always standard points that I ramble on about; plot, pacing, characters, writing style, etc. Such always helps me express my sentiments and reactions to the book I've just read.

However, sometimes doing this is damned impossible.

Generally, such has always been the case for Sherrilyn Kenyon's books and JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. When I'm immersed body, mind and soul into a novel, I can't analyze it in the same manner I would with other books. The character

Me encanta la serie Supernatural así que decidí leer este libro, con ganas de saber cómo lo contarían. Nos situamos en la segunda temporada, así que supone un retroceso y está bien recordar cómo eran los chicos por aquel entonces, antes de que el Apocalipsis sucediera, etc. Poder conocer los pensamientos de Sam y Dean es de lo mejor que tiene, pero la verdad es que se me hizo un poco lenta y falta de acción, comparada con como suelen ser los capítulos. Sin embargo, no descarto leer algún otro má ...more

Yes...I read a book based on a TV series.

It wasn't bad. It wasn't great either, but it wasn't bad. My daughter loves the Supernatural series, turns out my wife did to. I'm now watching the DVDs.

I'll probably read the other books given time (okay, so I'm a nerd...or possibly a geek, I'm never sure of the difference). I "sort-of" like the series (don't get your theology from it or anything), and I sort-of like the books. Brain candy for sure, but still fun.

I didn't really expect this TV tie-in to be better than fan fiction and it wasn't. Usually fans have a better understanding of the characters. This author really had no idea, unfortunately. He wrote them on a surface level and put them in New York of all places. If he really paid attention to the first season and a half before writing this, he would have realized that they don't do big cities.

I've heard the rest of the tie-in series is hit and miss with the different authors and all, and I own e

This book is all about two brothers, Sam and Dean, that have a crazy job. They go around the country hunting things like ghosts, demons, and other monsters. Ever since the death of their mother by a demonic power, they have done this.

In this book specifically, they get a call from their friend named Ellen who is telling them to help her friend up in New York. This friend's name is Manfred, he is my favorite and most interesting character. He is crazy about rock and roll and is a pretty funny ch

The book takes forever to take off and the two cases in it were not so great. Sam and Dean's personalities were faithful to the show though and that was cool. But I did find this book boring for the most part. I'm still not giving up on Supernatural books though. I want to read "Witch's Canyon" too as it is from a different author. Maybe it'll be more exciting.

Not awful, not fantastic though. Blasted through it pretty quickly because I'm a huge SPN fangirl and I didn't have to work at developing characters, scenarios, stories, etc. It's fan fiction, so it's written for fans, by fans. It was also really incredibly easy to read; kind of like junk food--just the way I like my fan fic.

I've been following SPN for a 'few' years, and season 11 is just starting up, so I did have to keep reminding myself that this is 'season 2 Sam and Dean'. The Boys were run

This is the first ever Supernatural book and Keith did an excellent job on it. This was set in season two between Crossroad Blues and Croatoan. I have read it once before back in college, but it's been while. Think read when first came out in 2007 or early 2008. I still loved this book as much as back then. I'd forgotten about the Banshee case, but remembered the Poe case somewhat.

I started watching Supernatural about 2 weeks ago. I haven't finished it yet, but so far I LOVE it. I was happy when I found out that there's a series of books based on the show, but after reading 'Nevermore', the happiness is gone.

This book takes place between season 2 episodes Crossroad Blues and Croatoan. Dean and Sam go to New York to solve one case, but end up solving two. The first one is about a haunted house, the second about a series of crimes based on the stories of Edgar Allan Poe. N

Supernatural: Nevermore is my first foray into the world of the Supernatural tie-in novels. I'd been wanting to read one of the books for some time and by a lucky happenstance, I found this title at my library. The fact that it's the first of the tie-in novels was an added bit of serendipity. I have to say, I'm mighty pleased with the book. In my opinion, the author really nailed the voices and characterizations of Sam and Dean. Throughout the book, the dialogue and rapport between the two were ...more
