In a nutshell: something unnatural is violently murdering people at the Mexican border -- both illegal immigrants and border-crossing officials. The Winchesters' investigation brings them into contact with colorful characters north and south of the border, and involves them with a hunter whose abilities rival their own.

If you're a Sam girl, will you like this book? Maybe, although there's not much in it to appeal to your inner fangirl. It's Soulless Sam who's inhabiting these pages, and as somewhat of a peripheral character.

If you're a Dean girl, will you like this book? Very possibly: almost the entire thing is told from Dean's POV. There's Dean whumpage galore, as well as a variety of other flavors of Dean -- the heroic, the snarking, the lover of Baby, the protector of Sammy. I'm pretty sure the author worships at the Altar of Dean (for which I blame her not at all, because ... so do I), and she's done quite a good job of portraying him in all his multi-faceted glory.

But.

Are you wildly averse to having a kickass female hunter working alongside the boys -- someone Dean is ferociously attracted to, and would pursue if he weren't emotionally tied to Lisa? Think of her as a Buffy-like presence, strong and knowledgeable and extremely capable, but burdened with family issues. (Although visually, perhaps Eliza Dushku is a better fit than SMG.) If that sort of character makes you run screaming for the hills, then you'd best leave this book on the shelf.

If you're game to give this a try, though, I think you'll be more than satisfied.

The story started out promising... Sam and Dean were together and there was an interesting mystery to investigate. Then the author introduced "Mary Sue"* known in the story as Xochi. There was nothing that Xochi didn't know or couldn't do. She was better than Sam and Dean in everything. She could read minds, beat Dean in a fight, conjure up magic, speak with supernatural creatures, conveniently get guys she never met to go out of their way to give them all rides, drive better than Dean, had connections in every single town, had an answer for every single problem, and the list goes on.

The author tried to create sexual tension between Dean and Xochi but it fell laughably flat. And the Xochi & her sister angst... unbelievable and contrived.

After Mary Sue entered the story it became apparent that the author could not write scenes with three or more characters. So, of course, Sam was regulated to shadow duty. He just stood there until the author remembered him. I can't see Sam just standing aside while a fight is going on, but whatever. The author certainly did her best to get rid of Sam at every opportunity so that Dean and Xochi can share adventures and lackluster sexual tension. One thing a good author does is make you believe that characters, even if they are "off screen" are doing something. Not so with this author. Except for Mary Sue, if you weren't on screen, you might as well have been stored away in a closet.

The story was mostly told from Dean's point-of-view, but sometimes it switched to Mary Sue or other minor characters. The Dean in this story had the hunting instincts of an amateur. Thank God Mary Sue was there to answer every time Dean or Sam asked what to do next.

I watch the Supernatural TV show to see stories about Sam and Dean.

My review might be a bit biased since I am a huge fan of anything Supernatural. The books provide a nice bit of drama between actual episodes. I have read 5 books so far and am saving a couple of them for my upcoming vacation. I have yet to be disappointed by any SN book purchase. No, the books aren't perfect and some are a bit 'off' from what you might actually see on TV, but they do offer a good opportunity to escape a TV hiatus.

This book features a strong female lead (Xochi), a mexican 'Laura Croft' if you will. She is the brains of this situation because the setting takes place mostly in Mexico or close to the border where Spanish is king. Obviously this is not the brothers' forte'. The book flows well, although as stated by others, there are some grammatical/editing flaws. The author integrates bits of humor well, as would be expected with a genuine SN story. The 'baddies' are pretty good. They would be really difficult to recreate for an on-screen episode so I was happy to get the feel for them in a book. Soul-less Sam is present, but if you are a huge Sam fan, you'll likely not love this book since he is more of a supportive character here. Sam does play a pivitol role mostly toward the end, but he is certainly not the focus of the story. Dean is represented well. There were only a couple of comments that he made that I thought Dean would not likely say. However, for the most part, Dean was true to character. The ending was as satisfying as any SN episode.

As compared to other SN books, I would say this book ranks towards the top, not my favorite, but still good. It was certainly worth the price of the book. If you need a SN fix, you'll likely enjoy this if you take the previous comments into consideration. Enjoy!
