No doubt the years hunting monsters and saving the universe have had their toll on the Winchesters, but their toughest and most gruesome battles are contained in this book. Think Lucifer was diabolically clever? Think again. No son is more wayward than the one who squanders his intellect and academic career pursuing questions as poignant as “Half-awesome? That’s full-on good, right?” Gathered here for the first time since the formation of Purgatory, a collection of research so arcane and horrific that it would make even the late, great Bobby Singer blush.

Supernatural is my favorite show so when I saw this book I immediately bought it. This book takes closer look at the bond between brothers, monsters, demons, and the angels. My only compaint is that I wish it was longer. It's only 190 pages. If you like Supernatural and would like to read some well thought out essays, this book is one Id recommened.
