An Original Novel Based on the hit TV series Supernatural created by Eric Kripke
Titan Books

Synopsis: A brand-new Supernatural novel that reveals a previously unseen adventure for the Winchester brothers, from the hit CW series!

When a gruesome murder takes place in Braden Heights, Indiana, the local authorities suspect the disembowelled and eyeless corpse was the victim of an animal attack. But when another body is discovered, the eyes gouged out, Sam, Dean and Castiel start looking for connections between the two men and discover both were soon to be fathers. As the boys hunt the killer, they unearth stories from the town’s troubled past, and secrets some would prefer stay buried forever.

“FIVE STARS! [E]nded up canceling my plans for the evening so that I could keep reading. . . . John Passarella’s writing style pulls the reader into the Supernatural universe with ease and paints such a graphic picture that the real world simply fades away and time becomes immaterial. This story is horrific, fascinating, outrageous – and I enjoyed every minute that I spent reading it.”
