SYNOPSIS: (From Goodreads)

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?


A few years ago I read the first book in this series after I started watching the TV series that goes with it.  I am normally a read a book after/before I watch the movie/TV series kind of girl.  However, with this series I didn’t realize it was based on an Archie comic book when I started watching it. Once I realized it was a book I made it a goal to read the books that go along with it. I was finally able to do the second book. Of course, I listened to it!

Sabrina is now a daughter of Satan after signing her name in his book in order to save all of her friends and her hometown.  Unfortunately, since she has done that she has had nothing but bad luck. That is when she realizes that she has a bad luck “charm” in the form of the new tea shop owner, who is really something else in disguise.  If only it was as easy as banishing the bad luck charm for her life to change.  Nothing is ever easy for Sabrina. 

This book basically picks up right where Book 1 ended. I honestly felt like I was turning a page to the next chapter.  Even though it had been a bit since I read the first book I knew exactly what was going on.  I loved the fact that the author wrote the whole Harvey and Nick interaction.  They were the comic relief in my eyes.  Watching Nick learn how to woo a witch who was raised in the mortal world was fascinating to watch. I liked how we got to see more of Roz and her ability to see things even if her eyesight was fading.  Watching Susie I think come out to Harvey was wonderful. He was so accepting of her no matter what. The thing that irked me the most was Harvey asking to lose his memories of the witches. I mean I understand why he did it but was still frustrated with that whole part of the storyline.  I am hoping next book the author really explores the Nick and Sabrina romance/storyline, I think that it can be something special in the long run.  I have the third book on my shelf at home and I cannot wait to finish her story.
