Pre-order ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’

Last week it was announced that an eighth official story in the Harry Potter series, titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, would be coming out on July 31st, 2016.

Rather than being a full-fledged book though, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is actually the rehearsal script of an upcoming play of the same name, the story of which will take place 19 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

An actual novel would be better, but I’ll take it. Pre-order the story on Amazon in one of two editions: Kindle ($15) and Hardcover ($18). It can also be pre-ordered from the iBookstore for $15.
