Chilling Adventures of Sabrina novel coming this July

Last week we passed along the awesome news that Netflix has ordered an additional 16 episodes of their hit Sabrina the Teenage Witch revamp and/or reboot Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The freshly ordered 16 episodes will be airing in two parts and both parts will begin production sometime in 2019. But if that's too long for more Sabrina, no worries as Part 2 is set to premiere over on Netflix come April.

And speaking of the hit Netflix series, today we have word that the show is getting its first novel tie-in this July from an author named Sarah Rees Brennan. The book is called SEASON OF THE WITCH: THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA (pre-order HERE) and it will be a prequel tale told during the summer BEFORE the Netflix series kicked off. The prequel novel will also "reveal a side of Sabrina not seen on the Netflix show."

Currently there isn't any cover art available for the upcoming novel, but all the same, you can check out the book's rather lengthy synopsis below.

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? What choice will Sabrina make... and will it be the right one?

Brennan is an author best known it seems for a series of young adult books called Ghosts of the Shadow Market. I've never read that series - or any of the other books by Brennan - but this sounds intriguing enough. Truth told, I wasn't enough of a fan of the first season to spend my cold hard cash on this book, but who knows, maybe my feelings will change following the second. I guess we'll find out when it hits the streaming giant on April 5, 2019.
