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.
There are twists, turns and lots of surprises. I loved falling into my favourite fictional world again (not that I ever left it) and found myself completely charmed by the story. Did I expect that ending? Not really but I love to be kept guessing.
I've seen several mentions of Cursed Child being like HP fan fiction - I'm not going to comment on that here as I feel it would be too spoilery, but if I had ever managed to write HP fan fiction like this then I'd be really flipping proud.
