This book is the weakest of the many Supernatural tie-in novels. Because it is set in the period between Seasons 5 and 6, there is no interaction between Sam and Dean. The supporting characters (two long-lived witches, an innkeeper, a few gangbangers) are one-dimensional and change unrealistically to meet the needs of the plot. There is some exploration of Samuel's work for Crowley, but only at the very end of the book. I enjoyed the Salem setting and the introduction of long-gone relatives, but so much more could have been done if the focus had been on Sam and Samuel rather than on Dean's life with Lisa and Ben. A missed opportunity!

Overall, this book was ok but not great. I am a huge SPN fan, so I was excited to read about what the guys did in their year apart. This book gave great incite about Dean's demons and how Lisa and Ben helped him through it. But I do not really believe Dean would ever take Lisa and Ben on a haunt, even if he did not really believe they would be in any danger. I think he would have made up some excuse and left them safe at home, then go back afterwards. Or, not attempted the haunt at all. Chuck said at the end that since Dean had made his promise to Sam, he would not try to kill himself or bring his brother back. I thought the story was good and Soulless Sam was creepily hot, it just felt wrong to me reading this about Dean bringing Lisa and Ben with him on a haunt. I really don't think he would ever do that.

I'm so glad to have finished this book. I almost didn't buy it because I was afraid of crossing over into fangirl territory, but I caved! Now I'd give it four stars, but about halfway through the book typos started popping up in almost every chapter. Just a few mistakes like using "where" when it should have been "were" and leaving words out of sentences. A small offense, but given the sheer number of times it happened (and in such a small book too) I'm afraid my final rating will have to be three stars. This is a strike against the editing, not the content and flow of book itself. I still recommend this book to any curious fan of Supernatural. However, if one is looking for a detailed account of Dean's year without Sam, look elsewhere. This book only covers the beginning when Dean was still having trouble letting go and no one really knew that Sam was soulless. Final verdict: Highly recommend. Pros: Good book. Just like the tv show, only much longer than 40 minutes, haha. Cons: A lot of typos, but they are simple ones that shouldn't bother anyone with a high school diploma. Note: I bought the ebook.

A must for spn fans. Well written and true to the series. Dont let the other bad reviews turn u off. This is a great book. Even my foster son, who refuses to read, read this and loved it.

The writing is elementary at best. Someone didn't proof-read before they hit print... The story is too unbelievable, even for the series. There feels like there are 3 different plots going at any given time, which can bee too much. Now, the guys in the show are generally tools anyway (right?) but Ms. Dessertine makes them sound "douchey" as Dean would say. Too unlike the show for me. Mildly entertaining.

I have all the books in the Supernatural series, and they are all well-written with interesting plot lines. Sam and Dean are very realistic in the books, down to their nuances. While this book doesn't have any close reactions between Sam and Dean, you will learn a great deal about what happened in the year Dean thought Sam was in hell. I enjoyed reading the book and do recommend all of the books in the series.

I will admit I was dubious at first, with the Salem witch storyline, but Dessertine does a wonderful job with it! Seeing the way Lisa took care of Dean gave me so much respect for the woman. Don't get me wrong, I don't want Dean rocking the white picket fence, he and Sam need to be saving people and hunting things. But Dean was really destroyed after the events of Stull Cemetary and I was glad she was there to help him pick up the pieces. And then...there is Soulless Sam...as scary as ever! I also loved finding out a little more about the Campbells, which unfortunately there just didn't seem to be the time to do in Season Six. I also highly recommend Dessertine's first Supernatural tie-in novel effort with David Reed--War Of The Sons
