About the Author

John Passarella is a horror and supernatural author. The co-authored Wither was his first novel., and it won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel and Columbia Pictures purchased film rights. He has written two sequels to Wither, plus several Buffy and Angel tie-ins.

More About the Author

When I was ten or eleven, I started telling stories by drawing them. (To this day, drawing and doodling helps open up my creative side for storytelling. Once in college, during a very boring lecture, I doodled in the margins of my spiral-bound notebook and those doodles eventually turned into a complete science fiction novel manuscript.) By twelve, I began typing one page stories. Into high school and college, I was writing short novel manuscripts.

My first novel, the co-authored WITHER (by "J.G. Passarella") won the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. Columbia Pictures bought the feature film rights. I followed up with two stand-alone sequels, WITHER'S RAIN and WITHER'S LEGACY (Wendy Ward novels), plus the paranormal thriller KINDRED SPIRIT and SHIMMER. In addition, I've authored six original media tie-in novels, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: GHOUL TROUBLE, ANGEL: AVATAR, ANGEL: MONOLITH, SUPERNATURAL: NIGHT TERROR, SUPERNATURAL: RITE OF PASSAGE and GRIMM: THE CHOPPING BLOCK. My fiction collection EXIT STRATEGY & OTHERS (with two new novelettes) is now available for Kindle.

I graduated from Interboro High School (Prospect Park, PA) and Widener University (Chester, PA). Currently, I live in New Jersey with my wife, three children, a dog and a cat.

I'll be honest, although I love Supernatural, until now the tie-in novels have left me cold. Poor characterizations, ridiculous plots and awful secondary characters have pretty much ruined them for me. That all came to an end with John Passarella's Night Terrors.

Night Terrors starts off with a bang-we're dropped right into the action and it never slows down. From giant tarantulas to Nazi zombies to killer trees, Sam and Dean are literally up against the stuff of nightmares. And gruesome ones at that--trust me, the tarantula scene is exceptionally graphic. The MOTW is interesting and one not often seen, which makes it fun trying to guess what it could be. I especially like that the hunt fits in easily with the show's timeline--no glaring canon errors, or events so big that they should have impacted the series.

The best part of the novel, tho, is that Mr. Passarella knows his stuff when it comes to Supernatural. He is a longtime fan of the show and it shows clearly in his characterizations of Sam and Dean and in their interactions with each other and everyone around them. He works in references to recent events in the show such as Sam's return from Hell and his fear of returning to Soulless!Sam as well as Dean's tendency to repress, repress, repress--little things that make the characters recognizable and believable and that have been sorely lacking until now.

Night Terrors by John Passarella is by far the best Supernatural novel I've read. I highly recommend it to any and all fans of the show and I hope that we see more from Mr. Passarella in the future!

It's about time there's a Supernatural paperback tie-in novel worth reading. If you haven't yet bought Night Terror, DO IT NOW.

Before reading Night Terror, I read an interview with the author, and I knew just from this that the book was going to be good. Why? Because John is actually a fan of Supernatural. He's been a fan since the pilot episode. So he KNOWS these characters. Unlike 95% of the previous tie-in authors who probably watched one episode, tops, John knows the entire world of Supernatural and cares about Sam and Dean. And it shows in every single page of this book.

Thankfully the story takes place between Frontierland and Mommy Dearest, so Sam has his soul back, which was a big plus for me. The main plot of the novel is that in a town in Colorado, people's nightmares are literally coming to life - from natural disasters to wild animals to zombies - and killing people. And it's up to Sam and Dean to figure out what's causing it and stop it. And the boys are not immune, either, both of them experiencing their own nightmares. While at first Dean's "nightmare" is amusing, his second is very much the opposite. And Sam's centers around the other half of himself, Soulless Sam, which comes to life and turns deadly for Dean.

There's just so much to love about this novel. It had such a classic season one/season two vibe to it - the boys ride into town, kill the monster and ride off into the sunset. The dialogue is spot on, I could hear Sam and Dean's voices in my head as I read. I just love the way John wrote the brother's relationship. Like I said, he knows these characters. The urban legend was very interesting and how it spiraled out of control in this town.

Finally someone gets it! This is the best tie-in novel for the Supernatural series that I've ever read. Amazingly, this writer has delved into the aftermath of Soulless Sam, more than the show ever has, and I loved it- all the while wishing this author could write for the show, too!

Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic force twenty-nine years ago. In the years after, their father 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.

When Bobby is alerted to some strange happenings in Clayton Falls, Colorado, he sends Sam and Dean Winchester to do a bit of recon. Lucy Quinn, the daughter of the chief of police, claims that she and two friends were chased by a headless horseman in the park. Lucy and Tony escaped. Her other friend, Steve, ended up running into the street, where he was hit and killed by a '68 Charger. But the '68 Charger did not have a driver and witnesses saw the phantom vehicle disappear into thin air. That same night, a homeless man reports being chased by a Gila monster that had been the size of two Nissans.

Sam and Dean use their counterfeit FBI (Homeland Security) credentials to investigate. Chief Quinn believes his daughter may have been drinking and imagined it all. Same with the homeless man. He refuses to believe any of the crazy reports coming into the station are true...even those from his own officers, who insist that Nazi zombies are attacking the locals. The brothers soon find themselves fighting the stuff of nightmares. A tree uproots itself and impales a man on a limb. A giant tarantula dines on a jogger. A sinkhole that is deep and wide enough to hold a gymnasium forms. And those are only the beginning.

Sam and Dean must figure out what is causing the terrors that are stalking the nights within Clayton Falls. But they had best do it quickly, because soon the living nightmares will never end.

***** FIVE STARS! On a personal note, I would like to state that this is some creepy stuff!
