Alice Henderson threw everything in this novel except for the kitchen sink. First, there's another Wendigo on the loose. For a brief moment, this reader believed that Henderson was trying to make a massive apology for the poorly written script of SUPERNATURAL titled "Wendigo" and make a story focusing on this elusive creature. The wendigo was just a small part of the novel filled with vampires, an aswang, kick-ass senior citizens, enthusiastic hunters, monster eggs, a nosey forest ranger and mother nature threatening to obviate the Winchesters and good old Bobby. The historian for this novel placed the events in the 7th season, but it felt like Season 2. If you are looking for Dean and Sam to have brotherly moments, forget it. It was the Sam and Bobby show for the majority of the novel and Dean connects with everyone in need of help. FRESH MEAT is a thrilling, richly detailed novel with twists and turns throughout. I couldn't put the novel down.
