Book Description

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.

Sam and Dean have hit New York City to check out a local rocker's haunted house. But before they can figure out why a lovesick banshee in an '80s heavy-metal T-shirt is wailing in the bedroom, a far more macabre crime catches their attention. Not far from the house, two university students were beaten to death by a strange assailant. A murder that's bizarre even by New York City standards, it's the latest in a line of killings that the brothers soon suspect are based on the creepy stories of legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe.

Their investigation leads them to the center of one of Poe's horror classics, face-to-face with their most terrifying foe yet. And if Sam and Dean don't rewrite the ending of this chilling tale, a grisly serial killer will end their lives forevermore.

1.0 out of 5 stars buy it for the cover pic & tack it on your wall August 20, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
i am one die-hard supernatural fan. and i'm an adult. and... oh, yeah, a writer. which means, i know writers have to make a living, and i hate giving bad reviews. BUT.

honestly. did this guy EVER watch more than maybe 4 or 5 episodes of this show?

it probably goes without saying i shouldn't have expected much from this work, since it is based on a tv series. still, i bought it to be loyal and help show the CW that there are fans out there who feel it is a small sacrifice in order to help keep it on the air. i love the idea of a series of fiction works based on this show, mainly because the characters and premise are so interesting and lend themselves to myriad situations. there are certainly enough plot ideas out there to make a very, very long fiction series, and many seasons of quality television entertainment.

still. i won't give away spoilers for the book, but i certainly pray --like dean prays for layla --that the good folks at harper collins will find another writer to write any further episodes published in this series. some of the most unforgiveable faults: the guy seems to confuse the word "agoraphobia" with "acrophobia," he can't remember from one chapter to the next if it's sam's arm or hand that's broken (in the show it's actually his wrist) --and later has him performing physical feats as if the cast has simply evaporated, and makes so many character errors on things that even relative newbie fans like me have committed to memory that it's quite obvious he just doesn't know his material. and Poe!!! Poe is spinning in his grave. literary content is faulty, continuity is just nil. and no, i don't agree that sam and dean live between the covers of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Superficial, not Supernatural September 6, 2007
By klostes
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Supposedly a "Supernatural" tie in novel, "Nevermore" reads instead like Mr. DeCandido saw a chance to write a paean the Bronx and package it as a tie in novel. Sam and Dean were incidentals as he sang the praises of his native city and inserted his own original characters--who, although more well-drawn in the book than the supposed stars of the show, were still lackluster and stereotypical. As for the plot, I didn't understand why Sam and Dean were necessary at all; they seemed to be peripheral to the story at almost all points. Through them we learned how wonderful their host's house, his coffee, and rock album collection were; we learned how difficult it is to park a large car such as the Impala in Brooklyn, and oh, yeah, Poe's house is there. About all the boys proved useful for was a Seance at the end of the book, which any decent medium could have pulled off--and spared us, the show's fans, this endless psalm of the glories of the Bronx masquerading as a novel about the show we enjoy.

The plot itself, rather than the spine-tingling and chilling story the cover of the book promised, was rather lackluster and boring. The Edgar Allen Poe references seemed more there to as an educational device regarding the glories of the locale. (Again, how cool is the Bronx, that Mr. Poe died there!) For the A plot, not only was the "bad guy" obvious from the moment he was introduced to the plot, he was so poorly drawn it seemed as if the author realized we had reached chapter 15 and, "Oh, yes, I need a bad guy." Superficially, he made sense, just like most of the rest of the book. Looks good perhaps on the surface, but with nothing there supporting the character's motivations or purpose. Same with the B plot; the twist that came with the reveal made no sense at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended August 4, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I honestly cannot recommend this book to anyone, unless you're a reader who's happy with anything that involves the characters Sam and Dean Winchester.

While I did think the Winchesters were well drawn and in character (for the most part), the other characters came across to me as remarkably two-dimensional and in some cases one-dimensional. Space that could have been used to flesh out the characters and make them richer and more human was wasted. (See below for more on that point.) The two major original characters (Manfred and Det. McBain), who are apparently supposed to be amusingly quirky, I found to be cliche'd and annoying - and McBain appears out of nowhere to take a major role in the second half of the book. The villain of the piece is described so poorly that he's neither "terrifying" nor "chilling" (adjectives taken from the blurb on the back of the book). In fact, the book isn't scary at all; very little attention is paid to pacing or description that would amp up the chills.

The author sets up two cases for the Winchesters to investigate and solve, and then for the most part ignores both until the last few chapters. He spends far too much time discussing things that aren't important to the storyline: Dean's passion for their host's music collection, his rabid dislike of the host's band's music, the host's unusual collection of coffee mugs and the quality of his coffee, Dean's attempts to pick up an attractive bartender and the attempts of a younger woman to pick up Dean. A short book like this needs to zero in on plot and *stay* zeroed in on it; there's just no room for wandering off the path.

Worse than that, the Winchesters don't actually SOLVE either of the cases.
