Review Post: Path of Night by Sarah Rees Brennan

Published by Scholastic Australia, 2020

Each time I pick up a book by Sarah Rees Brennan, that returns me to Greendale, I am floored by her writing style and ability to perfectly create new scenarios for the characters we know and love.

Rees Brennan creates deep and complex tales, following the direction of the hit Netflix series, yet making it completely her own.

Ambrose and Prudence’s chapters are filled with so much action and light. They lift this book up with their ease, their flirtatiousness and their way of life. But you can feel their pain, through the lightness of their quest. It gives such depth to the book, overall.

Harvey is such a potato and I just want him to be happy. He is warm and kind and caring. He sees the best in everyone and everything. He is the light in Sabrina’s increasingly dark world.

Path of Night was a fantastic, action packed, dive into Sabrinas world. Of fighting inner demons, of learning who and how to trust. As always I loved the multiple points of view, each gives the book something different, humour, love, drama, action. They each play a part, just as the characters do.

Path of Night is fast paced and shows you what feels like behind the scenes, between Netflix seasons. It lets us understand what is happening in the characters minds. Well written and engaging this is a great read.

Thank you to the team at Scholastic Australia for sending me out a review copy of this title.
