    "Dracula might be tame by modern supernatural fiction standards. It's a real original and true pioneer though. If you haven't read this book, you don't know anything about supernatural fiction."

    "Having seen the shining and speaking to many of my friends who have read the novel, this story is a great solution to a timeless supernatural fiction. The story has stayed relevant since its conception and is still referenced frequently today. The focus on the supernatural may not be as strong as the topic suggests and that is why I rated this a 4 instead of a 5."

    "I enjoyed that the novel has a wide range of characters, it can be hard to follow at times, it seems quite chaotic. Overall, I found the story to be quite the adventure with a rather weird time in America. I read and listened to the audio book, I will say I preferred the audio book, it was easier to follow the story and the voice reading was done in a manner that made the story quite enjoyable. "

    "Bitten looks to meet the criteria as a supernatural fiction though I wouldn't say this solution is particularly "timeless." Based on the reviews it looks like a good book but there is likely even better books out there that would make more sense."

    "This could technically be considered supernatural fiction, but this isn't exactly what I'd expect to see in this search. This is very much a fantasy novel, and from an author who has made many similarly themed fantasy novels. This is likely great for someone looking for fantasy specifically, but it is less typical supernatural in theme."

    "I was looking for a good supernatural fiction book and someone recommended this one. It was "okay", somewhat mediocre. I was able to get through it, but I've already forgotten what a lot of it was about... but I do know it was similar to "Twilight."

    "Ahhh...the Shadowhunters!!! Valentine does his best to try and rid them all at the same time! This book is a great and fast read if you're a fan of Cassandra Clare's series. I was hooked from the first book, and this 3rd installment did not disappoint. The imagery in this novel is as good as it gets, and the slyness of Valentine is perfectly written. Highly recommend this series, and particularly this book."

    "Blood Promise (Vampire Academy) is great for those who enjoy supernatural fiction a lot but I can't say it's a classic. Although it's themed in that vampire world, the story focuses too much drama and romance that doesn't fully satisfied the supernatural cravings someone would want from a book. Definitely not a classic timeless read but great for those looking for a specific theme. "
