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.

Awful Most of this book is just reverberating the plot of former books through dreams etc. it’s awful. At one point it says 1994, then says 25 years ago and the back says 19 years ago.At this point they are just trying to make money and don’t care about the fans or character authenticity or accuracy. They were all weak characters, and not the young, charming, inexperienced weak, that you’d expect from past writings. They all came across as middle aged disgruntled Muggles, lol. Too real…
