SEASON OF THE WITCH is a fantastic start to the Sabrina series. While fans of the shows will appreciate all the characters and the humor with the horror, this book goes even deeper into the characters with a new story. Sabrina is about to turn 16, when she knows she is expected to take her vows to the Dark Lord and go to the Academy, leaving her mortal life behind. As a half-mortal, half-witch, Sabrina faces a lot of questions about who she is and which side she embraces- as well as the difference between the two.

Sabrina had always been looking forward to coming into her powers- but now that it is here, it feels too soon. She loves her life, living with her aunts and cousin, and her friends at school, Susie and Roz- and of course, Harvey, her maybe boyfriend. Sabrina is afraid Harvey does not like her as much as she likes him, and so she turns to her cousin for help with a spell. However, she is not sure if she likes the outcomes.

The book is told in the first person from Sabrina's point-of-view with chapters in between that give insight into other characters. These sections add so much to the book, giving us a whole new perspective on the way things seem. Perhaps my favorite was Zelda's, seconded by Tommy's- but they were all just so well written. I think I liked the book even more than the show for just this reason. The characters felt so much more real in the book, and I loved getting into their heads.

In terms of the overall story, it was fast-paced and full of twists and turns. Sabrina really seems like a teenager, and the book is great for the YA paranormal/fantasy audience. There's danger, humor, mystery, and character growth. I highly recommend for any Sabrina fans- this is a great book that celebrates the series and characters by delving deeper into their psyche.
