Review: The Fourth bride by Carol Gill

Published 17/01/2014 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Fourth Bride 
Author:              Carole Gill
Pages:                 I’ve read it on my kindle
category:           Horror

The story:

After the tragic and sudden death of her groom, Dia, cursed by Dracula as a babe, is taken to his castle. Once there, she is seduced and turned by the count, and she becomes his fourth bride. The other brides are to be her sisters, and they are all to love and feed upon one another. As her master says: “The joy is in the blood…the passion is in the blood…endless life is in the blood…!”

And so she finds it is.
Dia’s tale is full of erotic sex and graphic violence. It is a tale of love and lust but mostly of blood, for the blood is everything

The view of a book addict:

I’ve received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review

The only way you can read a book by Carole Gill is of you read it after dark, so reading it in October the month of Halloween is the perfect time!
Why am I saying this? Because these books are scary, they are written to make your skin crawl and have you leaving a light on before you go to sleep.

Just like the other books in this series this book is again very well written and has a lot of twist and turns. It’s a story that grips you from the first letter to the last. Once again I really loved the fact that there are other mythical figures in this book, like Van Helsing. I’m a big fan of the classic tales and books so it’s always fun to read about those characters.

The verdict of a book addict:

Just like the last book, this one was amazing again!

Review: Fandom at the crossroads by Lynn Zubernis and Katherine Larsen

Published 08/01/2014 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Fandom at the crossroads 
Author:              Katherine Larsen & Lynn Zubernis
Pages:                   239
category:           Supernatural, Non Fiction

The story:

Fandom At The Crossroads: Celebration, Shame and Fan/Producer Relationships is an in-depth exploration of the reciprocal relationship between a groundbreaking cult television show and its equally groundbreaking fandom. For the past six years the authors have inhabited the close-knit fan communities of the television show Supernatural, engaging in criticism and celebration, reading and writing fanfiction, and attending fan conventions. Their close relationships within the community allow an intimate behind-the-scenes examination of fan psychology, passion, motivation, and shame

The view of a book addict:

I’m always fascinated about what’s going on in te mind of people and to get the chance to combine that with my other love: Supernatural I just knew I had to read this book.

I loved reading it, to get an insight into the mind of the fans but also read about what the actors and the creative people behind the series think about fans. People have a strong opinion about you when you tell them you’re a fan of something.  Reading this book gives you insight in everything about fandom, it’s a really good thing that the authors are fans themselves. That makes the book so great if you ask me, they know what it feels like to be on the other side of the fence.

The side where people think you’re just crazy because you like a show so much that you would travel around the world to meet the people on it, that you would spend a lot of time online getting in contact with other fans or writing your own stories.

The verdict of a book addict:

If you would really like to know what fandom is about, this is a must read. And if you’re a Supernatural fan it’s so amazing to read the responses of the actors.

Review: Nevermore by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Published 02/01/2014 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Nevermore       Nevermore
Author:             Keith R.A. DeCandido
Pages:                 312
category:           Supernatural

The story:

Twenty years ago they lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. In the years after, their father, John, taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it.

Sam and Dean have hit New York City to check out a local rocker’s haunted house. But before they can figure out why a lovesick banshee in an ’80s heavy-metal T-shirt is wailing in the bedroom, a far more macabre crime catches their attention. Not far from the house, two university students were beaten to death by a strange assailant. A murder that’s bizarre even by New York City standards, it’s the latest in a line of killings that the brothers soon suspect are based on the creepy stories of legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe.

Their investigation leads them to the center of one of Poe’s horror classics, face-to-face with their most terrifying foe yet. And if Sam and Dean don’t rewrite the ending of this chilling tale, a grisly serial killer will end their lives forevermore.

The view of a book addict:

I admit that this isn’t the best Supernatural book I’ve read, but I still liked the story As a huge Supernatural fan I just had to read the books, I know I’m little late starting them.

The story was entertaining and could be a story from the television series. Although it was a little weird to read about Sam and Dean and not watch them on a screen. But I enjoyed the book and I will be reading the other books in this series.

 The verdict of a book addict:                                                               

Fun read and I’m glad I’ve read this book and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of them!
