Review by NatalieSW
This book is written so poorly that I was able to get half-way through only by pushing myself. I won't be able to finish it. The plot meanders, the characters are untrue to the TV show (which I like very much) both in personality and in speech, and the writing is simply dreadful. The publishers, who I assume have money invested in having the right to produce show-related merchandise, would be much better off finding a good fanfiction-writer -- and there are many who are very good -- or having one of their own assistant editors rewrite some of the actual screenplays in book form. For fans of the show who want something in book form, I suggest the trade comic books; they are true to the show and add to the story and characters.
Review by SparklePonies
Taking place during Season 5 of the television series, Sam and Dean are transported back to 1954 to get the last pages of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It kept me intrigued and wanting to find out what was on the "War Scrolls" and how they'd get back to present day, but I wasn't as impressed with this story as I hoped. It connected well with the rest of the storyline from the series, but the "love story" between Dean and Julia was cheesy and unlike him, and there was language the characters never would've used in the show, and that annoyed me.
