The first of three Pottermore Presents books that were released last year, this book shares tales of heroism at Hogwarts, one of my favorite places to visit through my imagination! I don’t need a reason to read (er… reread) the Harry Potter series, and these three books add to that nicely.
It’s a pleasure when I can escape into a fictional world and take a break from reality. Hogwarts and the magical world that the Harry Potter series creates is just one of the worlds I frequent. And yet, there are secrets that the world has still to reveal.
It’s always a delight to go back to a beloved series. My favorite fantasy series of all time, perhaps, is the magical world of Harry Potter. Quite recently, I chanced upon three books written by the author on Pottermore, and without further ado, bought it. This book, the third in that series, brings a little more knowledge about that world.
The Harry Potter series is perhaps my favorite fantasy series ever and one of my favorite series ever, across any genre. When I had acquired the box set of the books, I came to know of three accompanying books too, that formed The Hogwarts Library collection. Without further ado, I bought those three too. I had read Quidditch through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them earlier. This book completes the set.
There are few genres that I absolutely love reading. Fantasy fiction is one of them. To create a world, and make the reader feel like they are a part of it as they read, that’s really amazing. This book is one that I have read earlier too, but this is an updated, slightly extended edition. The cover is similar to the first edition, but I still love the first edition cover art more.
When it comes to sequels, the book has to be just as amazing as the previous book in the series, if not better. I’ve awaited this book, The Conspiracy at Meru, ever since I finished reading the first book, The Guardians of the Halahala. The author, thankfully, had the patience to withstand my constant enquiry on the release date of this book. Two years after I reviewed the first, I finally put my thoughts to words on this sequel.
