Half-witch, half-mortal sixteen-year-old Sabrina Spellman has made her choice: She's embraced her dark side and her witchy roots. Now her power is growing daily... but will it come at too high a price?Sabrina Spellman has just made the hardest decision of her life: She's leaving behind her beloved friends at Baxter High. Now it's time to follow the path of night and find her way among the witches and warlocks at the Academy of Unseen Arts.
Sabrina has always been good at the school thing, but now she has a whole new world to navigate. Her power is growing daily, but it comes with a high price. She must always remember her new allegiances and the cost they have on her friends... and on herself.
And then there's her new classmates. Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha are friends, kind of, but can Sabrina trust them? And what about Nick Scratch? He's as charming as ever, but will his feelings for Sabrina last?
Based on the hit Netflix show, this original YA novel tells an all-new, original story about Sabrina.
What I love most about these tie-in novels is the way Sarah writes them. While there is a central storyline, there are interspersed chapters from various characters (the Tommy chapter in Season of the Witch will forever remain one of my favorite things).
While Season of the Witch is a prequel, Chaos takes place between seasons 1 and 2, where Sabrina is navigating a new school and headed deeper into the dark. Rather than a retelling, these books fill in gaps and enhance storylines and characters. This is Sabrina’s world but Chaos is just as much Nick and Harvey’s story. I dare you to read this book and leave not shipping those two together (with Sabrina, of course. Because she can have both).
Chilling Adventures is a character-driven show and the books are no different. You spend time in their heads, feeling their feels, fearing what they fear (rejection! self! monsters!?). In Season, we spent a lot of time with the other mortals so it only makes sense we would spend time with the witches in Chaos. I have to say, reading this book made me view certain characters in a different light.
And what would this story be without a fair amount of chill, camp, and comradery? I can’t wait for Path of Night, book 3, to come out May 5th. I loved the most recent season and am looking forward to diving deeper into the world between the last two seasons! While you’re waiting for Path of Night to drop, check out our other Sabrina and Riverdale recs!
It’s not easy being half-mortal, half-witch. At least, not for Sabrina Spellman. She just discovered that her dad is Satan… and that it’s her destiny to rule Hell.
As usual, Sabrina’s got other plans for her future. She’s figured out a way to trap her father… but he’s caged in the body of her boyfriend, Nick Scratch. Now the love of her life is stuck in Hell… with Satan stuck inside him.
Sabrina knows there’s a way to get Nick back while also keeping dear old dad out of commission. She just has to figure out what it is. Unfortunately, her loyal cousin Ambrose is unavailable because he’s off hunting Father Blackwood, the evil former head of the Church of Night.
Fortunately, Sabrina’s still got her mortal friends, Roz, Harvey, and Theo. So when her aunt Zelda, now the church’s high priestess, mentions an ancient quest that might help open the gates of Hell, Sabrina and her friends are all in. But Zelda failed to mention that the quest has some perils of its own…
Who is the Riverdale Ripper? And why is Jughead waking up covered in blood?
Everyone knows the characters from Riverdale: popular Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, angsty Jughead Jones, and the sophisticated Veronica Lodge. But this is not the Riverdale you know and love. Something twisted has awoken in the town with pep. Inspired by the iconic Archie Horror comics, this reimagined universe takes the grittiness of the TV show and adds a paranormal twist.
Someone is killing the citizens of Riverdale. And after a bloody full moon, Jughead realizes he is the killer! Jughead is a werewolf. Can he keep this secret from his friends — including werewolf-hunting Betty Cooper? Jughead has to get his dark side under control — before it is controlling him.
Sabrina is a teen witch who’s struggling with balancing the double life of high school and her burgeoning powers. Newly relocated to Greendale with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (also witches), Sabrina is trying to make the best of being the new girl in town which so far includes two intriguing love interests, an instant rivalry, a couple of misfits that could turn into BFFs, and trying to save the high school (and maybe the world) from crazy supernatural events. NBD!
America’s Favorite Teenager, Archie Andrews, is reborn in the pages of this must-have graphic novel collecting the first six issues of the comic book series that everyone is talking about. Meet Riverdale High teen Archie, his oddball, food-loving best friend Jughead, girl-next-door Betty and well-to-do snob Veronica Lodge as they embark on a modern reimagining of the beloved Archie world. It’s all here: the love triangle, friendship, humor, charm and lots of fun – but with a decidedly modern twist.
