Story Summary: On a special mission for the Ranger Corps, Will, Horace, and Gilan travel to Celtica. When they arrive, they discover that all the people have vanished. Gilan believes that Morgarath has devised a plan to cross the mountain pass faster. If that were true and the king was not warned, the country would be destroyed. Gilan goes to warn King Duncan, and Will and Horace follow some Wargals to find that a massive bridge has been constructed across the impassable Fissure to let Morgarath’s army across. They come across a girl who says she is a maid to Princess Evanlyn of Araluen, but she is the princess. They also discover that the King’s army will be trapped on the Plains of Uthal. They burn the bridge but are captured by Skandians, but Horace escapes and tells the King. The battle starts, and Morgarath calls a truce and challenges Halt to a duel, but King Duncan forbids it. Horace challenges Morgarath and defeats him.

There would only be one part I didn´t really like is when he is still living at his aunt and uncles house because besides the snake and the letters it was kind of boring. My favorite character in the movie was hagret. This book would be a really good movie but, it´s already a movie that´s how good it is. I think students that like fantasy and magic and things like that would really like this book.

I would definintly recommed this book because there is a lot of pages and their is magic and funny parts. Also if you like this book there is a whole series of this book. I think my friends should read this book because it´s very interesting and could be a good experience. Overall I think this book was ver good.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Book Review by: Cooper S.

Book by: JK Rowling
Book Length: 320 pages

Story Summary: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child happens 19 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This book is more about Harry’s son than Harry. This book is actually the script for the play instead of a book. In this story, Harry’s child, who is named after 2 headmasters of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He quickly becomes friends with someone his father doesn’t like. So, everything is cool, until Harry decides to put his son in another house. This starts an adventure through time.

Your Review: I think that this book is good, but can be better. I think that the plot is good, and the author adds in a side character that didn’t really have a huge impact in the earlier books and gives her a line. I didn’t really think that was a good idea, because it just adds an extra character that doesn’t even really do anything. My favorite character was actually Harry’s son. I just think he is cool, and he wants to change something he doesn’t think is fair. I think this book would actually be a good movie, because it is literally a script. I think that people that like fantasy would like to read this, because it has magic and spells and lots of things that can’t happen in real life. I would recommend this to everyone, and I would rate it 3/5 stars. I think that my classmates should read it, because a lot of them like fantasy.
