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!
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.Read more ›
If you have a phobia against rats and bugs, you will have a difficult time getting through a few chapters without getting freaked out. This reader had to skip a few pages to get the vermin chapter out of my head. Yessh!
The dialogue between Sam and Dean was spot on and Passarella didn't weigh the novel down with endless flashbacks/references to previous episodes. According to the historian, the story takes place during season six, shortly after Sam regains his soul, but the story and the characters' interactions feel like season two. This is a huge story with tons of action. Watch out Stephen King. Passarella is nipping at your heels. Fantastic novel! Buy it.
John Passarella's 'Night Terror' is the absolute standout Supernatural novel to date. From the first page I was drawn in by an exciting and vibrant story that would rival any great horror movie plot. The characters felt real and I could see the whole thing play out like a movie in my head. What held my attention the most in this particular novel was not that it was just a great story but that the author really captured the essence of the Winchester brothers. It's plain to see that John Passarella loves these characters and really 'gets' them, and is able to translate that into his writing.
As a fan of Supernatural I have dutifully bought and read each novel as they came out (with one exception where the author's previous attempt had me so disappointed that I couldn't bring myself to read her next novel) and for the most part it was an exercise in frustration as many of the novels lacked insight into the show, had poor characterisation and listless plots.
Of the three novels about this TV show that I have really enjoyed reading, Night Terror is by far my favourite. This is one book that will stay in my collection. If any of my friends want to read it they will just have to go buy their own copy!
