Supernatural: Heart of the Dragon by Keith R.A. DeCandido
I was a little dubious when I picked this book up. Despite the gorgeous cover, I’m always wary of TV and movie tie-in books. They’re often awful. Luckily, this wasn’t.
This is definitely a book for fans of the show – if you haven’t watched it, you won’t know who anyone is or what’s going on! But for those of you familiar with the show, then this book is awesome. It spans three generations of hunters, the Campbells (Mary and her parents), John Winchester and Sam and Dean Winchester. The reason the story spans such a long period of time is because the same evil keeps coming back every twenty years. The Campbells and John Winchester only managed to banish it each time – but can Sam and Dean kill it for good?
The evil in question is being summoned each time by a guy and each time, the family of hunters must put a stop to his plans. Towards the end of the book, this becomes much more important as it becomes apparent that the spirit is important to the angels and demons as they want to use it as a weapon in their Apocalypse. So once more, it’s down to Sam and Dean to save the day. Grab this book and find out how they do it…
I don’t want to give too much away – but this is a seriously good read for fans of the show. It’s an additional story to any seen in the show and yet it still fits in perfectly. You even get to learn more about the characters which isn’t necessarily revealed in the show. If you’re a bit of a Supernatural addict, like me, you’ll appreciate what this book has to offer.
