Twenty-two years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. In the years after, their father, John, taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America . . . and he taught them how to kill it.

This story takes Sam and Dean to Key West. It takes place during the tv series' season three. Dean is trying to live up his last year, Sam wants to find a way to ...more
I had high hopes for this one, still turned out to be disappointing. All characters were as flat as paper, even Sam an Dean. I had to roll my eyes at a couple of their overambitious one-liners and there was something off a ...more
A combination of a potentially great story and complete cheesiness in the end.
The potential is in 'the mysterious ancient power looking for revenge'. Though it is dubious how evil that power is, it could have been a great story. Until the cheese fest near the end of the book. It got so bad that I was embarrassed.
*NO PLOT SPOILERS*
1. The use of certain phrases in conversation that Dean or Sam would never use. 'lockpicking skillz' (yes with a z) and 'emo' were used in normal conversation way too much. What they would say didnt always feel like their character (to be far most of the time it was ok).
2. Horrible, annoying and long back stories. An entire chapter to just say another person ...more
Well, I'm at least happy to say that i was wrong there. The book may be an adaptation, and as such the characters follow there on screen personal exactly, but the book is well written, and I will admitt to giggling a few times out loud. :P
While I thought he did an okay job in Nevermore of capturing Sam and Dean's characters, I know that was a major complaint of other readers. Their representation in this novel felt a lot smoother -- honestly, as if the author just didn't try as hard. The addition of Bobby as a secondary characte ...more
I liked this book better than "Witch's Canyon", because the story was more what I had expected from these kinds of books. Where "Witch's Canyon" just introduced tons of OCs seemingly without direction, Bone Key creates OCs, people you get to know and who actually play a part in the things that are about to happen.
And there's tons of things going on, starting with Sam and Dean going down to Key West, to ...more
“Bone Key” was pretty much like its fellow books, “Nevermore” and “Witch’s Canyon”; full of light teasing between the brothers Dean and Sam, little hints towards the TV show (some bigger than others), and action mingled with light but solid story-telling, which keeps your nose glued to the pages and doesn’t make a dull read on the worst of days.
As a story, “Bone Key” is traditional Supernatural quality. The th ...more

It wasn't quite as funny as the other books, but still a good read between between series breaks.

"Take your brother outside as fast as you can - don't look back. Now, Dean, go!"
Sam's not dying. Not on my watch. You protect your family no matter what.
I'm coming for you, Sammy. Just hold tight.
And don't look back.
He opened his eyes. Behind him, he could hear Kat's voice muttering an incantation in a language he didn't recognize. It wasn't Latin, certainly. Since it was demon magic, it was probably some language that was even more dead than Latin.
The chanting stopped.
