Ghost Rider by C.E. Murphy
I did NOT realize what I was getting into even after I saw the cover! Sure, the car looked like an Impala but I didn’t know it was the Impala. So, imagine my surprise when I read about two agents coming to meet Joanne Walker. After I got over the shock, I started to really dig the crossover even if the story wasn’t all that. I also liked reading about how the guys looked from the inside when Jo turned her shaman gaze at them. It’s plain to see the author is a long-time fan of the show because of the details that made it into the story, such as Sam’s innate magical abilities and Dean’s unhealthy attachment to Baby.
So, if you’re a fan of both these series and have been missing them, give this short a try. Best of all, it’s available to read here for free!
Fed by Mira Grant
Fed reminded me of what Stephenie Meyer tried to do with Midnight Sun. I didn’t like it then and I didn’t really like it now! In short, this novella gives us an alternate playing out of the events that led to George dying. It postulates what if it hadn’t been her but Shaun was the one who caught the zombie virus. What do I not like about it? The fact that it doesn’t add anything new to the universe. And since I still squicked out by the incestuous turn of events from the previous book I read, Deadline, I am really not liking either of the siblings.
But if you don’t mind George and Shaun coming together or just need to refresh your memory about the events from the past, this novella is for you.
Have you read either of these? What did you think? If you haven’t, would you want to start a series set in a zombie-infested world? Or one where supernatural things are going on all around you with you none the wiser? Why or why not?
