I'm about to start reading Supernatural Bone Key but I sorta don't want to read it because of the reviews but so far the Supernatural series is really really good!

Supernatural? Sure. Winchester? Not so much.

At the time of this writing, I have not read all the way through this book. However, that said, I am put off by a few things I have read so far.

First off, I am a huge Supernatural fan, so knowing Sam and Dean just goes with my ridiculous obsession. This book seems to take place just shortly after John Winchester's death and there is a major inconsistency with the characters. Most of the time, what Dean is saying, should sound something more like what Sam is saying.

For example, in the beginning of the book, Sam checks himself because he is being too bossy to Dean. The book states that its natural for Dean to be a follower and not a leader, whereas, Sam, being more independent makes more sense to be a leader. I couldn't disagree more strongly. The whole "who's in charge here?" debate was ended with this line, "Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole." That was early on in season one.

The second, Dean, in the book is a whiner. And not funny. The humor in this book, while close, is overthought and over explained. Sam is also a bit of a smart ass, and not really in a great way. In fact, he sounds more like Dean than Dean does.

The flow of the book is a bit choppy. The boys stumble on things that should leave them scratching their heads, but instead, they seem to figure out what is going on instantaneously.

Thirdly, there is still plenty of reference to the "college boy" name that Dean called Sam a few times in season one. In the contexts its used, and the number of times I have actually read it so far, its extremely over used and wasn't really something that Dean called Sam in season two. The "college boy" quip was supposed to be funny while we were learning who the boys were in season one. Its not funny anymore being employed in this book and honestly, I am a little bit sick of reading it everytime Sam stumbles upon new information in the story.

The writing is ok. I dont really call this a waste of money, but its not for die hard, eat sleep bleed Winchester fans, looking for a Supernatural fix while working a long shift at night.

I dont regret buying it, and will probably buy all the others as well, just to support my Supernatural addiction. So if anything, we are enablers.

    Entertaining read!

    I found this book to be very entertaining, and it held my interest all the way through. I've only seen the television show about 2 times, but the book was well-written, captivating and I couldn't wait to get to the ending. I hope to pick up more in the series.

    One of the best, true to the show!

    I really enjoyed the second installment of the supernatural book series. The story is original and the author really got the characters. Overall, I couldn't find anything wrong with the book. Great all around.

    Even in Print

    Absolutely loved this one. 'Witch's Canyon' follows the first Supernatural novel, 'Nevermore' and is excellently written. The author really captures Sam and Dean as characters. Overall I liked this one better than 'Nevermore' But loved them both a lot. Can't wait for more to come out.
