Supernatural: Fresh Meat is broken into a brief prologue and sixty-five short chapters that make the novel easy to approach even for those of us who aren't normally heavy readers. Sam and Dean decide to investigate a case in Sierra Nevada after completing yet another dangerous showdown with a vengeful spirit. The duo quickly decide they will need extra help on the job with their friend Castiel lost to the power of the Leviathan, so they call up the trusted Bobby Singer with what they believe to be a Wendigo attack. The novel offers up one final chance for Bobby to play a hero during the seventh season of the Supernatural television series, and you can be sure there is plenty of comedy and name calling authentic to the series when these three get together once again.
Supernatural: Fresh Meat allows fans to receive the author's point of view on what the characters are dealing with mentally as well as physically throughout the novel. An interesting prologue also gives us a detailed account of how the monsters of the novels originated that an episode of the television show doesn't always get to show. For all of the differences between Supernatural: Fresh Meat and the television show, the character in the book remain true to form and show that not only is Henderson a tremendously talented writer, but she obviously knows her Supernatural lore as well. Supernatural: Fresh Meat includes one of the most interesting cases the trio has ever dealt with, as half-eaten carcasses, zombie attacks and encounters with plenty of other fearsome monsters truly test the limit our heroes can handle. If that wasn't enough for the boys to handle, the frigid temperatures of the Sierra, Nevada mountains may be what ultimately does them in.
Although Supernatural: Fresh Meat may not completely change the storyline of the television show, it's easy to imagine the events unfolding in the novel just as they would in an episode of Supernatural, and fans can be sure the read is well worth their time. Supernatural: Fresh Meat is presented in a way that even light readers can easily enjoy, and fans of the show will be able to easily understand even the most intricate moments of the storyline. If you're not a fan of Supernatural, you'll likely be lost throughout most of the book, but Supernatural: Fresh Meat is clearly a novel written for fans of the show by a fan of the show. Henderson is at the top of her game in Supernatural: Fresh Meat, and the Winchesters will need to be at their best to survive the horrors the author has prepared for them as well.
