Reviews of Supernatural: Night Terror
[Night Terror] is terrifying, thrilling and terrific! A treat for all horror fans.... riveting, detailed storytelling.... Passarella also manages to weave in character exploration, which reveals how deeply familiar he has made himself with the world of Supernatural. Ultimately, this is a story which I'm surprised the Supernatural writers themselves haven't thought up yet. For anyone who likes the darker, more gory standalone episodes of Supernatural like 'Bloody Mary,' 'Everybody Loves a Clown' and 'My Bloody Valentine,' this book is for you!

For me, what works about [NIGHT TERROR] is the fact that it's [as] close… as you're going to get to that perfect scenario we fans look for on the show. It's basically just the boys, the Impala and some monsters to fight.... [F]or those who want to read a good old fashioned monster story featuring your favorite hunters, I highly recommend this book. It's got everything in it that a Supernatural fan could want.
— Michelle Carlbert, Daemon's TV (Read the full review.)
Night Terror is a solid horror read that will have you holding your breath.... all the wit, old rock references and angst that the television series has. What makes this a good read is that you don't need to see the series. As you go from hysterical laughter to bone-chilling moments there is a sense of satisfaction from reading a good old-fashioned thriller.... Passarella's Supernatural: Night Terror falls into the tradition of the series nicely, where an urban myth takes a horrific turn. One thing is for sure, you'll never see your dreams the same way again.

[A]fter I got into the groove of the story... I realized the brilliance of the style. Passarella has painted the world of Supernatural so perfectly, so true to the show, that the reader knows he must have spent countless hours studying the visual style and rhythm of the show. But it doesn't stop there. The character of Sam thinks, acts, and communicates exactly as he has for six seasons of the show. And Dean... well, he swears and grumbles exactly like Dean always does.
[T]his is a book that absolutely must be read, and should not be spoiled by anyone. Do you have friends that have read it? Cut off all communications with them until you've read it for yourself.... [T]his is the best TV tie-in book I have ever read. Ever. [A]ccessible to readers who may have never even seen the show.
I'm not just recommending this book to fans of the show, fans of TV, and fans of horror novels — I am recommending this book to anyone who wants a good read."
—Robert L (Seriable blog, SEPT 30, 2011, Full Review)
FIVE STARS! On a personal note, I would like to state that this is some creepy stuff! This novel is a media tie-in to the hit CW series Supernatural. This is an original story and has never been seen on television. If you have not watched the show, I believe that you will still thoroughly enjoy this tale of paranormal horror. For those of you who never miss and episode, Night Terror takes place during Season Six, between "Frontierland" and "Mommy Dearest".
Passarella writes with a type of malignant zealousness that is highly contagious to his readers. My husband said that any time the real world dared to interfere with my reading of this story (and this includes whenever he gently tapped on my shoulder to ask a quick question), I would have an antagonistic glare in my eyes until I could return to whatever lethal creature was causing havoc. Needless-to-say, interruptions were kept to a minimum.
Whether you want an extra Supernatural episode or simply to read a dark story and feel cold fingers run the length of your spine, this novel is perfect.
The Ninth and Best-So-Far Supernatural Tie-In Novel
I quite enjoyed the book. It had the feel of a Supernatural feature film, and Sam and Dean work together as efficiently as in the early parts of the series..... I highly recommend it to any Supernatural fan.

Supernatural: Night Terror is an exhilarating action-packed horror thriller ...
—Harriet Klausner (#1 Amazon Reviewer)
[A]wesome. It had a little something for everyone and I think that both fans and non-fans of Supernatural will really enjoy this book.... a great story, great characters, and just the right amount of mystery that will keep the reader guessing until everything is finally revealed.
