Thirty years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a demonic supernatural force. Following the tragedy, their father taught the boys everything about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners of America... and how to kill it.

Laurel Hill, New Jersey is beginning to look like one of the unluckiest places on Earth when a series of mishaps hit the town. But Sam and Dean suspect it’s more than just bad luck. Along with Bobby Singer, the brothers soon realize that a powerful Japanese demon is encouraging the chaos. But the demon has bigger plans and they are going to need to make their own luck to stop it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creepy and Unforgettable! 29. August 2012
Format:Taschenbuch
Sam and Dean Winchester consider Bobby to be their honorary uncle. After dealing with some harpies, the trio travel to Laurel Hill, New Jersey. On the surface, the small town seems to be having a horrible run of bad luck. In truth, the unfortunate town has been infiltrated by an invincible creature that specializes in orchestrating bad accidents and causing the spread of diseases.

Sam still has a daily struggle to maintain a vise-like grip on his sanity. Occasionally Sam has trouble distinguishing between what is reality and what is "Lucifer-vision". Dean does all he can to help his brother cope. Often Sam will squeeze the scar on his left hand, prompting real-world pain to push reality back to the surface of his mind. But Dean worries that someday he may lose his brother to madness. In addition to his problem, the Winchester brothers recently had a couple of dark doppelgangers created of them by the Leviathan. These doppelgangers had gone on a cross-country killing spree. Sam and Dean must continually keep looking over their shoulders in case somebody made them as the infamous serial killers. Therefore, Bobby uses his Fed disguise to work with the local police, while the brothers go undercover as insurance claim adjusters so that they may talk to witnesses of all the bad accidents and deaths.

Sumiko Jones is known in school as the Lion Truth Blogger. The teen is intelligent and extremely observant. She uses these talents to blog school happenings that most fail to notice. Her boyfriend is Ryan Bramble. Ryan has been having trouble with his grades this year. Sumiko is helping by tutoring Ryan; yet Ryan feels that it is a worthless endeavor. It does not help that Ryan has been suffering lately from horrible migraines.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well... 15. Juni 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I read a few bad things about, for example how the author didn't really focus on Sam and Dean but was "trying to write about his own characters".. maybe. *shrugs*
But Dean and Sam never felt off, neither did Bobby. In my opinion, they were portrayed perfectly and the other characters the author built in had to have so much writing about themselves to be realistic and for the reader to understand what is going on.
I enjoyed, that it was more like a puzzle. Some pieces you knew already; Sam, Dean, Bobby.
Some you didn't and you couldn't see the full picture yet. You had to take the pieces and see what fit and what you the pieces looked like.
You were slowly introduced to the monster, to the other characters and their reasoning, while not really knowing what the monster is or why the other characters are even MENTIONED.
So I enjoyed the reveal.

The writing was also to my tastes.
The end was a bit sad, what can I say? Supernatural, huh..

All in all, I consider it perfect.

Plus, it made me want to write.. :p

4.0 von 5 Sternen Big-budget Supernatural 5. September 2012
Von John Keegan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
John Passarella's first "Supernatural" novel was easily one of the best, and so the notion of a follow-up was a welcome one. Making it even more tantalizing was the thought of a "Supernatural" novel taking place a stone's throw from where I grew up in southern New Jersey! While various place names and location details have been modified to protect the relatively innocent, it's not hard for a former native to read between the lines.

Set firmly in the first half of the seventh season, the novel fulfills the editorial mandate of depicting events that could never happen on-screen, given the legendary budget constraints that have come with being one of the longest running series on the struggling CW network. In a way, that mandate is both a blessing and a curse.

One of the biggest problems with the seventh season of "Supernatural" was the inability to communicate the full scale of the threat of the Leviathans; as voracious as they were, they could hardly be engaging in mass killings on a budget! Meanwhile, Sam's struggle with his inner Lucifer was hobbled by the limited availability of Mark Pellegrino. The author tries to place this novel in context with those long-running plot arcs, but is only partially successful. While Sam's struggle with Lucifer is actually enhanced by its relevance in the novel, cropping up at all the wrong moments, the references to the Leviathans only serve to highlight how disproportionate the novel's events seem in comparison.

And these events are huge. Right from the start, Tora (the main antagonist) is killing folks left and right. By the time I got several chapters into the book, I was wondering how the death toll wouldn't be cause for massive state response. I'm fairly positive that outbreaks of deadly MRSA and flu strains, overwhelming hospital staff, would be extremely noteworthy for that part of the state. Especially since "Laurel Hill" is more or less adjacent to some of the more affluent areas of South Jersey!

Later set pieces further strain the willing suspension of disbelief on this point. One incident involving a pedestrian bridge would be national news, and then there's the capstone that initiates the titular rite of passage that would, quite possibly, reach international proportion. (Not only that, but in the wake of the Aurora, Colorado incident, this could be a very uncomfortable few chapters for some readers. Be forewarned.)

These are hardly concerns unique to this novel; all tie-in media has the potential to be too big and momentous when compared to the "canon" surrounding it. And the downside to maintaining appropriate scale is that the story can seem incidental or meaningless. Knowing that the editorial staff told the authors of the more recent books to throw caution to the wind mitigates some of the annoyance, but it still feels out of proportion.

It may sound like this is a negative review, but for the most part, the book is an excellent example of a "Supernatural" tale. Taken on its own, this could even be seen as the basis for a big-budget film treatment. The characterizations are right on point, the mythology is well-maintained, and all of the various elements come together in the end. On that basis, the book is recommended for "Supernatural" fans, if stark reminders of recent tragedies would not be too upsetting.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty Good- great those who are counting down to Oct. 3 15. August 2012
Von fairie girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I will try not to give any big spoilers away. I know a lot of fans read these because so many tie ins are weak. Rite of Passage takes place in season 7 after Slash Fiction and before How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters. The feel for Sam and Dean is pretty good- nothing came off as too out of character. The author writes Hallucifer well. I could truly picture the hallucination scenes. The author also deals a bit with Dean' s drinking and depression. I only gave this book a 4 because of the bad guy. There was so much destruction and chaos in such a short period of time that it was amazing the Leviathans did not make an appearance just for the all you can eat buffet. The bad guy just never came off as super scary and the boys (including Bobby) just seemed a little off their game. I would recommend it.

Her boyfriend is Ryan Bramble. Ryan has been having trouble with his grades this year. Sumiko is helping by tutoring Ryan; yet Ryan feels that it is a worthless endeavor. It does not help that Ryan has been suffering lately from horrible migraines. If the tension headaches are not enough, Ryan is beginning to experience insane rages. He has no idea what is happening to him. The answer is far worse than he could ever imagine. As the chain of misfortunes escalates, Sumiko expands her blog to include all the recent supernatural events in Laurel Hill. Eventually her blog investigation catches the eyes of Sam and Dean.

***** FIVE STARS! This novel is a media tie-in to the hit CW series "Supernatural: The Complete Seventh Season [Blu-ray]". This is an original story and has never been seen on television. You do not have to be a fan of the series in order to fully enjoy this adventure; however, for those of you who do keep up with the television show, this tale takes place during season seven, between "Time for a Wedding!" and "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters".

Author John Passarella is well known for writing some dark, twisted, and creepy stories. I have often wondered about this author's mental stability. That possible imbalance is probably what gives each of his stories their surreal aura. Whatever talent, dark imagination, or paranormal ability this author has, he definitely used it in spades for writing this adventure. I ended up reading the entire book in a single sitting. (Thank heavens I was on vacation and did not mind losing so much sleep!) Unforgettable! *****

Rite of Passage is John's 2nd Supernatural Novel and this one just as the first didn't dissapoint. This is a fantastic read for anyone who is into Sci-Fi/Horror books or just a fan of the Supernatural Show in general. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. He's presented a story that is fiction, yet ties in stuff that could really happen. It really stops and makes you think about all the stuff that has happened in the world. I definatley recommend this novel to anyone interested!

4.0 von 5 Sternen He *almost* got it. 21. August 2012
Von Ficwriter1966 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read all of the Supernatural tie-in novels to date - and since they've ranged all over the map from terrible to...okay, I go into each new one not expecting very much. I count one as a "win" if I can get through it without wanting to throw it against a wall.

This one? *Almost* makes it to on-the-mark.

Mr. Passarella definitely has our familiar characters (Sam, Dean and Bobby) spot-on. Their voices and actions are true, and he doesn't try to exaggerate their characteristics for the sake of saying, "See?? I noticed that Dean loves classic rock!" or "See?? I noticed that Bobby says 'idjit'!!" Our boys are smart and creative here, and that's a joy to encounter.

The author also spins together some interesting background characters: a hunter from Bobby's circle of friends, and members of local law enforcement who are drawn in to helping the Winchesters. His villain is original, intriguing and scary, and the four teens who form the B-story are interesting enough that there was only one chapter I wanted to fast-forward through.

There are a few flaws, though. The parents/grandparents of the three teenage boys struck me as being annoying and cliched; there wasn't enough three-dimensionality to them to turn them into real people. Several supporting characters are dispatched in what felt like a very uncaring way (here one moment, gone the next, and no one seems to mourn their loss). And something's resolved at the end in a way that had me rolling my eyes and saying, "Really, John? REALLY?"

Overall, though, the book is a fun read. It moves along quickly, there's plenty of action (though for this particular reader it was a bit much; I kept thinking of those insurance commercials featuring Mayhem, and expected him to make a cameo appearance at any moment), and as I mentioned, the Winchesters and Bobby are flesh-and-blood, and actually solve the case. If you're looking for a quick summer read to help fill the dreaded Summer Hellatus, you won't go wrong ordering a copy of Rite of Passage.
