Path of Night (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, #3)
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...

    A well-written tale that continued on in a satisfying way from the first two stories.I enjoyed the alternating points of view between the members of the Fright Club, Ambrose and Nick. It was nice to get a few more insights into their different perspectives as they all tried to find ways to rescue Nick from Hell.The relationships between Sabrina, Harvey, Roz and Theo were also given a bit more depth, which allowed the reader to understand their friendship dynamic and love for each other even more A well-written tale that continued on in a satisfying way from the first two stories.I enjoyed the alternating points of view between the members of the Fright Club, Ambrose and Nick.

I loved all the little references to their Riverdale counterparts peppered throughout this story.Thank you @scholastic_aus for gifting me a copy to read and review!

    4/5.I have really enjoyed this series. I think the books do a good job at complementing the tv series while providing more background and dimension to the characters. This book made me want to rewatch the shows again.

    Months waiting for this book and I read it in less than a dayIt was a bittersweet read, more bitter than sweet actually. But I love the way Sarah gives a new light to the characters, and the way she write it made me see all in my mind.I’m still processing the content of the book. I mean, Nick is suffering, I’m suffering...Now, we need a book between part 3 and 4? Definitely

    SRB always delivers. These are facts. Though the third installment in this series had plenty of her trademark humor, it also dug deeper into these characters in a way I wasn't totally prepared for (which is silly, because that's basically Her Brand). It made me cry more than I thought it would. I loved these books so much they made me love the show, and I can only hope they continue to bring such richness to its world. And shout-out to Theo, MVP of this book. Also if this doesn't take a turn for SRB always delivers. These are facts.

    The best one yet. Brennan really tries to makes sense out of the third season. I enjoyed the alternating points of view, Theo is the best, I'm glad I get to know him better. The Fright Club was given a bit more depth, which makes their friendships dynamic more understandable. The story is the classic quest one, but again, characters and relationships are more important than plot. Archie's abs get cameo. It's bittersweet meditations about love and friendship which bunch of great quotes at the beg The best one yet. Brennan really tries to makes sense out of the third season.

I really hope there will be another book from Brennan with season 4 events and characters. I would be glorious.

    I know we don't really have control over these things but if you're planning on having a lockdown birthday this year, I'd highly recommend against it. It's samey and boring and likely to not be the best day in the year which is what it is definitely meant to be. The only shining beacon on my birthday this year was the release of Sarah Rees Brennan's third Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tie-in, Path of Night.Path of Night takes place immediately after the events in part 2 of the Chilling Adventur I know we don't really have control over these things but if you're planning on having a lockdown birthday this year, I'd highly recommend against it.

The only shining beacon on my birthday this year was the release of Sarah Rees Brennan's third Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tie-in, Path of Night.Path of Night takes place immediately after the events in part 2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Nick Scratch is in Hell and Ambrose and Prudence have travelled to Europe to track down Father Blackwood. If you've watched part 3 of the series, you'll know that there's not very much time between the two series at all and so Sarah Rees Brennan takes a deep dive into each of the characters, giving us more insight than ever into Sabrina, Nick, Harvey, Ros, Theo, Prudence and Ambrose.In Path of Night, Sabrina learns that in order to save Nick, she must appeal to the Lady of the Lake and embark on a series of quests along with Harvey, Ros and Theo. The only problem is that the quests will come at a great personal cost and one which the friends might not be able or willing to pay.After loving the first two of Sarah Rees Brennan's tie-ins, I knew I was going to love Path of Night and I'm left thirsting for more CAOS and definitely more of Sarah Rees Brennan's novelisations. Alas, I do not have a date yet for either part 4 of CAOS or another novelisation to follow Path of Night.I listened to the audiobook edition of this novel, as I did with Season of the Witch and Daughter of Chaos and it was so good to listen to Jessie Vilinsky and Nicol Zanzarella again. I've long been ready to listen to anything these two wonderful narrators read and Path of Night was no exception.For feeding my insatiable obsession with all things CAOS-related, I give Path of Night an excellent four out of five stars and cannot wait to see what comes next from this franchise. Highly recommended for all fans of Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and lovers of superior paranormal YA fiction.Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Facebook

    I will start with the positive things. The book is well-written. The story is interesting. I mostly enjoy the inner dialogues of the characters and the backstories it provides. Still the book should be part of the canon of the Netflix show. However, reading the books (this one in particular) I feel it is a fan fiction written after the Part 3 was finished. To me the characters don't act like themselves from the show but as a continuance of the books. For example, the Fright club spending time in I will start with the positive things.

The interactions with the witches and ghost children as well. Habrina is too strong, something that I don't think we see in Part 2 but it is alluded to in Part 3. The whole quest thing doesn't make sense with Part 3 as well - I think it would have been at least mentioned with Sabrina, Harvey, Theo and Roz being sure they see Nick. I'm a bit confused if Nick's backstory here is canon or not - a lot of questions for his time in Hell as well. I still hope we will get some answers in Part 4.

    I hope that for as long as the TV show runs SRB continues to give us these tie-in books. Harvey Kinkle 4-ever. I hope that for as long as the TV show runs SRB continues to give us these tie-in books. Harvey Kinkle 4-ever. <3

    As always, I love getting the backstories on the characters, and getting to see them in a new light (I always go away loving the characters more than I did previously.) These books are hecka weird, just like the show, but that makes me love them even more *Insert crying laughing emoji here* can't wait for the next one to come out!

    omg i mean i've yet to read anything Sarah Rees Brennan has written that hasn't left me giddy and satisfied and wanting MORE. She is QUEEN of characterization. All I could ever hope for is to see it all on my screen someday. the NICK AND HARVEY stuff omgggg. It's so GOOD. I need to see them in scenes on the SHOW. and the way she does Harvey/Sabrina and Sabrina/Nick and Ambrose/Prudence in this book is spectacular all those complex feelings and repressed darlings (and darlings who feel too much - omg i mean i've yet to read anything Sarah Rees Brennan has written that hasn't left me giddy and satisfied and wanting MORE.

    Devilishly delightful. As per usual SRB kills it on writing CAOS. I smiled the whole time. Favorite bits were the Ambrose and Prudence interactions (and flirtation). Favorite line was heartbreaking, but the reference to training wheels just got me. So ready for another season and another book!

    Excuse me kindly, Miss Brennan, but how dare you??? I'll be the first to say that I disliked Nick in the TV show. I did not trust him and I was too hung up on my childhood crush on cartoon Harvey to actually LIKE Nick. The previous book made me like him a little. But I still didn't imagine myself crying about him in this one. I don't know how to handle this change of heart. Do I ... Do I LIKE Nick?? He's an ass. I mean, how he goes out of his way to call Harvey by the wrong name just to annoy hi Excuse me kindly, Miss Brennan, but how dare you??? I'll be the first to say that I disliked Nick in the TV show.

I mean, how he goes out of his way to call Harvey by the wrong name just to annoy him? But I know more about his backstory now and he's dealing with all the trauma. I particularly loved all the little scenes in Hell, where just like Nick, the reader was left wondering if it was actually happening or if it was an illusion. I just love myself that particular brand of Sarah Rees Brennan torture. The real hero of this book is Theo though. WHAT. A. LEGEND! I love Theo sooooo much, it hurts. I also could relate to him so much. His experience with the extended versions of Lord of the Rings (don't kill me, I only watched this year for the first time because of quarantine and I also wondered why this already over-long hike was prolonged further). His casual interjections of 'oh by the way. I'm into guys. Okay, bye then.' LOOOOVE Theo. That Theo-Zelda interaction? Came out of nowhere and I didn't expect myself to enjoy it quite as much as I did. More of that please. And then there's Ambrose and Prudence on their revenge quest and all those interactions left me pretty giddy. Ambrose is so insouciant but his poetry? His visions for a possible future with Prudence? Delicious! The truth is Sarah Rees Brennan seems to understand these characters on a deeper level, which makes reading these exquisite. And for all the Nabrina shippers, who hate this (not all of them do) because it's "pushing the Habrina agenda". Please stop. It shows perfectly how when things get hard, people tend to seek refuge in places that felt safe to them before. That's all it is. Okay, I'll see myself out now. But not before saying: I'm gonna need the next book ASAP. Maybe add a dash more of Hilda and Zelda and I'll be content.

    I've liked all these books and I like this one, too. It was awesome to get Ambrose and Prudence's romance, which we didn't get a lot of in the show. It made sense that Sabrina's got lingering feelings for Harvey, even while she does huge stuff for Nick and is really committed to him, which is why we got her writing both names on the candles in Part 3. 1 thing I didn't expect... to feel SO BAD for Nick. I hope some good things happen for him in Part 4 and Book 5. I think I did like Book 2 a littl I've liked all these books and I like this one, too.

Still it was fun to see Sabrina & friends on a magic adventure, like the early parts of Part 3 and dragging that ice-cream man to hell. (Maybe my fave episode of Part 3.)

    The previous two books felt a lot closer to the series than this one and to me, I assume, that it sets in between the events in Part 2 and Part 3. I ASSUME, OKAY, I ASSUME.Overall, I really love the story. I also love the part with Harvey and the ghost kids. That was so so cute. Also, Lilith reigning as queen in hell? She really said "You could be the king, but watch the queen conquer." HOHOHOHOHOAnyway, 4/5 from me.

    I didn't love this one as much. Sabrina's waffling over the two boys got to be a bit much, and it just got plain weird with Roz around. There were bright spots--Lillith, and Ambrose and Prudence especially. I like Nick Scratch's development too.

    As I’ve said in my reviews of the other books, I’ve only watched the original Sabrina. This part gets 4 stars because I found it harder to follow and get caught up on. Probably not the book’s fault, but it was just slightly less enjoyable than the first two parts.
