I like this genre. I think the repetition is not bad. I feel it's ok if a couple books have the same "rules" just as long as they have a unique story.

Supernatural thrillers can vary in topics...I don't mind reading about werewolves and vampires but once people start talking about God in a way that seems irreverent to me I am very likely to drop the book. What I mean by my previous statement is a third person narrative with a tone that makes him sound like an authority on religion. I don't mind characters voicing their opinions or even thinking whatever but it really rubs me the wrong way when the author draws what I believe to be uneducated and biased conclusions about God as if they knew God inside out.
I also don't like when they give demons so much power and give angels and God a weak appearance. Even though Constantine has a very poor depiction of God in my view I like how he was able to shut down the devil so easily.

Nowadays, the Supernatural thriller genre has been overstocked with books and films dealing with it. But when a truly talented author writes a gem of a Supernatural Thriller story like what happened here in Raven's Peak then I applaud the writer and look forward to reading his future works!

I love this genre as there are so many facets to it that can be interchanged. I think that recently a lot of "kiddified" versions of stories gave the supernatural aspects a bad press. Personally I love being able to pick up a book and just lose myself in a great story with interesting characters and just switch my mind off. I must say that I have found a few new authors who are changing the genre up a bit which is great.

You are right. "Supernatural" can encompass many different things. I'm enjoying the authors who are changing it up a bit.

It has been overdone lately. Every where you look, supernatural books and tv shows are everywhere! The problem is, they all resemble each other too much and there's no longer any individuality.

I think this genre can have some of the best plot twists as the characters are so very different from us, that they react in ways we could never imagine. I really do like the imagination required for this style.
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon
