    1 thought on “Night Terror

    1. For a tie-in novel, this one is pretty damn good. It turned out to be an excellent choice for my October reads. It's chock full of schlock, B-movie horror monsters and there are a few scenes that had me cringing and gagging (view spoiler)[The lady with a belly full of bugs who had them crawling up her throat and out of her mouth just about did me in. The attack of the rats scene was sublimely bloody and creepy. (hide spoiler)]The writers for Supernatural the TV show are masters when it comes to [...]

    2. A very enjoyable story. Nice to see Dean, Sam, and Bobby again. Would not want to live in this world though. Little too weird for my taste. Would recommend for anyone who is a fan of Supernatural or fantasy novels.

    3. One of the best Supernatural tie-in novels I have read. Passarella actually nailed Dean and Sam's voices. And any author that can have me almost too horrified to keep reading while throwing around references to "Dead Snow" and steampunk is pretty awesome.

    4. Easily the best one of these books so far. Not only did it capture the spirit of the show well with a good story and plenty of good horror, but it does something the last few books failed miserably at: stands almost entirely on its own without utilizing too much material from the season of the show it takes place in. It's always been my opinion if you are going to have books that tie in to an ongoing series of movies or shows that those stories should stand mostly on their own so you don't have [...]

    5. As a rabid Supernatural fan, it is pretty much required for me to like this book. And don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, there were just a few things off that make it 'okay' rather than 'good' or 'great'.First off it took a little while to get to the meat of the story and figure out exactly what was causing the kerfuffle this time around. This I think is mostly because it didn't really follow the flow of the show or the other books. See, normally when people are dying around them and they reali [...]

    6. The one thing about cannon books is the writer has to return the main characters back to their original condition before the book started. So, you may ask yourself, why do we read cannon? My answer is that i want to see main character development that goes beyond the 40 or so minutes every week. Unfortunately, this book doesnt even try to develop anything. it masks the monster of the week with trival dreams had by many. so many in fact, one would never personally get involved with the story. Its [...]

    7. This book was just no. If you like the TV show just stick to that cuz like no. I gave it 3 stars cuz I love Sam and Dean but like otherwise

    8. Not my favorite Supernatural tie-in. I can't put my finger on it but it was more like someone using Sam and Dean in a story than someone actually writing a Supernatural story.

    9. Like the other Supernatural books, it mirrored the show very well. There were some parts that were a little creepy. Its a quick very enjoyable read. I look forward to more of the books.

    10. 3.5 STARS Full Review: heathersreadinghideawayspQuick Review: This was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it. The characters felt like they should, the story seemed similar to one we'd see in the show, and I was really entertained. I did have some issues with the writing and the fact that I wasn't completely hooked. If I put the book down it took a lot of will power to pick it back up, even if I wasn't hating it. Overall though, a lot of fun.

    11. I really liked this book, the pace was good and I liked the story, plus the characterisations of Sam and Dean were fine, so what is the 'but' I hear you ask? Well, it is that the boys are firefighting until a good three quarters of the way through the book, which is when they actually seem to decide doing some research to find the monster responsible might be a good idea, so that they can put a stop to the night terrors coming real. Also, Bobby doesn't seem to give them much help or advice consi [...]

    12. Ugh. While I loved the premise of this book - something is causing people's nightmares to enter the waking world - I hated the way it was written. It kept jumping to new characters' perspectives so that it was impossible to gain any kind of reading momentum. I just didn't care what happened, because I didn't care about any of these characters you only knew for one short chapter - or if, when they did reappear much later in the book, I had no idea who they were because I'd met 20 other characters [...]

    13. It was ok but not much development or anything really personal for the characters, which is always one of the main attraction for me to read "canon" novels.

    14. Why is it that these books kill way more people than the show, I'll never complain about carnage but wow these writers love killing people. I liked the way this author wrote Sam and Dean's characters as they seemed authentic so that was a plus. Add to the no "Mary Sue" in this book and I was stoked. The only thing that bothered me was how many times the monster of the week kept getting away from the boys, usually they see it, maybe miss it once, then gank it. Yet the author made them chase this [...]

    15. I actually really liked this one. It was really interesting with all the strange happenings that were going on. I think John Passarella did a fairly good job on the characterizations for Sam and Dean, but I think they went a little too slow on figuring out what was causing everybody’s nightmares/fears to come to life. Other than that, it really seemed like that this would be one of the episodes on Supernatural. I liked how all the strange occurrences were from people’s fears and nightmares. [...]

    16. I've read a couple of John's Supernatural tie-ins and have really enjoyed them. It's clear he's a fan of the show and knows his characters - I particularly enjoyed the nightmare scenes. At one point (I'll just say tummy issues) it's pretty obvious why he's a Bram Stoker award winner - the nightmare I'm on about is pure ew With lashings of yuk. It's a nice plot based on some cool mythology and it rattles along at a good pace. Great fun and seeing Soulless Sam again was really cool. Yes I'm evil, [...]

    17. Fun read!If you are a fan of the show, then you will enjoy this book. The author did a decent job with Sam and Dean’s personalities. If you aren’t a fan of the show, then you might be a bit lost reading it, as the story references characters and events from the show that aren’t fully explained. However, I am a fan, and could totally see the events in this book playing out in just the way it happened. Well thought out monster and situation.

    18. This was probably one of the scariest, creepiest, craziest books I have ever read! Scary to the point that it was giving me nightmares! Sam and Dean have to fight an unknown baddie in a small town, that is making nightmares come to life. I could have done without the giant tarantula. LOL! Excellent book, well written and I highly recommend it!

    19. ughthis book was kinda bad. didn't really like it. plot? sorry who? don't know hersuper long super dry boring plot devicesif you're looking to read a real book do not read thistook me 13 days to read. that's an unusually long amount of time.

    20. Loved itAnother great read based on the spn universe, well read and true to life use of pre existing characters. More please

    21. Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic force twenty-nine years ago. In the years after, their father taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of Americad he taught them how to kill it.When Bobby is alerted to some strange happenings in Clayton Falls, Colorado, he sends Sam and Dean Winchester to do a bit of recon. Lucy Quinn, the daughter of the chief of police, claims that she and two friends were chased by a headl [...]

    22. This book I love this book! I swear it was like a freaking drug to me. I love it!!! One of the reasons may be that it is based off of my absolute favorite TV show ever, Supernatural!!! It is violent, action packed, and a horror story and does the series justice.Alright down to business. You need some background info! This book takes place amidst the chaos of season 6 right in between the episodes "Frontierland" and "Mommy Dearest." Sam and Dean Winchester are hunters, but not the kind of hunters [...]

    23. I gave this book four stars because it was very well written, the characterization of Sam and Dean was very good and the book was quite a chilling read. But there were some things about it that I didn't like. First of all, there wasn't enough Sam and Dean, they seemed to be secondary characters in a book that was supposed to be about them. So much time was spent on the townspeople and their nightmares that I was starting to get annoyed and started skipping over their parts. I understand that thi [...]

    24. This Supernatural book was ok, but not great. When I read Supernatural books, I look for two things - is the author capturing the characters well and are they giving me an exciting horror/monster story, particularly one that just couldn't be done on the tv screen. This author did a nice job of capturing the characters very well. I never had a moment (as I have had in other SN books) where I exclaimed to myself "Dean would never say that" or "Sam doesn't talk like that." So, that was a positive, [...]

    25. This book was actually really good in my opinion. Definitely one of the best ones in the series of books and was enjoyable to read. I felt like towards the end of the book, the different point of views of different victims was unnecessary because by the time you get to that point in the book, you just want to see the brothers kill what they are hunting but it was still good. Even though its not easy to figure out what the monster is unless you really know your mythology, it is pretty easy to rea [...]

    26. I'll be straight up - I'm not into Supernatural anymore, (thanks, fandom) but I do enjoy these novels. They are very well written and I can forget that the characters are part of a TV show while I'm reading them. Passarella writes these characters far better than the showrunners, so if I'm going to stay interested in the first show I truly binged watch on Netflix, I'll stick with these things.Now onto how much I loved this novel in particular! I am a supernatural/horror junkie, so hearing about [...]

    27. Supernatural Night terror takes place in Clayton Falls, Colorado. Sam and dean are hunting a monster know as the Nocnista or otherwise know as the night hag. "This site is responsible for most of the negative emotions Feeding the Nocnista"(Passerella 277. Their is this old lady who just lost her grandson. To distract her mind from the she stays up all night watching scary movies.The monster feed of peoples fear and make their fears come true. One can say that the author picked this quote to give [...]

    28. This was yet another fun read in the Supernatural franchise. Though bloodier and with more detailed gore than usual (at least in my opinion) Night Terror was a fast paced, mystery/horror story, with enjoyable side characters. The villain of the story is surprising, and I really enjoyed how the author played with the consequences of our every day fears (or every night fears) becoming reality. I felt that Sam and Dean were slightly, very slightly out of character at some points, but I have noticed [...]
