Supernatural Nevermore Review

Posted on: January 23, 2013

Supernatural Nevermore CoverSupernatural Nevermore is another hunt for the Winchester brothers. Unlike the previously reviewed TV tie-in novel, only knowledgeable fans of the television series Supernatural will get the full effect of this original Supernatural novel.

Dean and Sam Winchester are asked to check out a haunted house in New York City, not far from the scene of two university students’ deaths.

The students’ murders are strange by any standards, and the brothers learn that it is the latest in a series of killings that are based on the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

Not only dealing with a lovesick spirit haunting the house of a local rocker, Sam and Dean investigate the Poe killings while dodging the authorities and finding themselves facing a human monster. A human serial killer certainly isn’t in their father’s journal.

Supernatural Nevermore combined some of my favored fandoms: Supernatural and Edgar Allan Poe. It was interesting when reading the sections depicting the serial killer’s thoughts and behaviors during the ritualistic murders, obsessing over the legendary writer.

It would have been quite difficult to follow without previous knowledge from the television series, referencing past characters and cases. It did not overly describe the characteristics and history of the Winchesters, reiterating the fact that this TV tie-in novel was geared toward fans of Supernatural rather than unfamiliar readers not from the fandom.

Supernatural Nevermore is set during the second season of the television series, specifically between the second-season episodes “Crossroad Blues” and “Croatoan.”

It depicted the camaraderie and mood between the Winchester brothers beautifully, especially during the tentative time after their father’s death.  Dean’s uncertainty about who his father was and what his father did or did not do for both him and his brother Sam is palpable. Sam’s grief and anxiety when stepping onto a college campus after everything that has happened in the past.

Delving into the minds of the Winchester brothers, Supernatural Nevermore showed more of the inner workings of Sam and Dean. Though with the acting chops of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, Supernatural has always shown the Winchesters as multilayered characters with an unbreakable bond between brothers.

Looking forward to the next original Supernatural novel, I will be reading and reviewing Supernatural Witch’s Canyon in the near future.
