The Winchester boys, the Salem witch trials what's not to love? Well, for me I didn't love this book. I thought it was okay. The premise was great, but it fell a bit flat for me. I am a huge fan of the show. I love me some Dean! In this book, I thought Dean was a little out of character. Lisa, drove me nuts she was a bit to whiny in this for me, which is odd, I love her character in the show.
The author is the personal assistant to the Kripe who is the creator of the show, so I thought this book would be nothing less then amazing. But alas, it was.
Besides Dean being ooc, my biggest problem with the book was the fact that it jumped around too much. We get thrown back in time at various points in the book, but we are never told we are being thrown back, we are just meant to figure it out by the characters in that chapter.For me this was very confusing.
Aside from all that I felt the writing was strong and I liked the ending. I felt it wrapped up nicely.
