Book Review: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season of the Witch By Sarah Rees Brennan

Genre: Fantasay

Rating: 5/5


It’s the summer before her sixteenth birthday, and Sabrina Spellman knows her world is about to change. She’s always studied magic and spells with her aunts, Hilda and Zelda. But she’s also lived a normal mortal life – attending Baxter High, hanging out with her friends Susie and Roz, and going to the movies with her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.

Now time is running out on her every day, normal world, and leaving behind Roz and Susie and Harvey is a lot harder than she thought it would be. Especially because Sabrina isn’t sure how Harvey feels about her. Her cousin Ambrose suggests performing a spell to discover Harvey’s true feelings. But when a mysterious wood spirit interferes, the spell backfires in a big way.

Sabrina has always been attracted to the power of being a witch. But now she can’t help wondering if that power is leading her down the wrong path. Will she choose to forsake the path of light and follow the path of night?

Our exclusive prequel novel will reveal a side of Sabrina not seen on the new NETFLIX show. What choice will Sabrina make and will it be the right one?

My verdict: Fans of the hit TV show will love this thrilling adventure starring Sabrina Spellman pre dark baptism. This introduces us to our beloved characters and a little bit of their pasts and true motivations that we don’t see in the show. In this bitesized Adventure (perfect for readers who aren’t used to lengthy reads) we see Sabrina battle with her wanting to live a mortal life and wanting to fulfil her families legacy of becoming a witch in The Church Of Night. In this adventure we see Sabrina battle with her own vanity and her own jealousy when it comes to sweetheart Harvey as well as everyone in her not able to understand her mortal/witch predicament. Overall a fabulous little starter which starts the ball rolling with the bigger and darker storylines in the next two books. A drama fuelled with dark humour and dealing with teenage angst.
