J.K. Rowling has a new book. A new book in her multimillion selling series to be precise. To celebrate the 25 years ago that Rowling came up with the idea for a character who goes by the name of ‘Harry Potter’, she will release this limited edition novel, and here at The Book Blogger we have had access to an exclusive leak, we managed to gain a a sneak peak at both the proposed cover and the blurb. Even more exclusively, we will reveal here for the first time the proposed title…
In a world exclusive, we present to you… (drumroll if you please):
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Dead
The opening words in her new book are a play on the ending to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which appeared to bring the series to a close: we all thought that the 12 closing words,
The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.
were the last we would read of Harry and his friends. I can exclusively tell you today that J.K. Rowling has penned one final Potter book, to bring a sense of closure to the expansive septet, soon to be octet. It will bring the series to a complete close, and bring the books full circle.
The source of our leak gave us the full dustcover of the new book, from which we here reproduce the blurb:
Join Harry Potter one last time, as we learn the story of the vanquished Lord Voldemort’s ‘The Death Eaters’, who seemingly disappeared after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. These deadly witches, wizards, and various other magical beings, will stop at nothing to avenge their former master, no matter how long they have to wait. It comes to light that they have infiltrated the Ministry of Magic, where Harry works, he will have to keep all his wits about him and need all the friends he can get to try and survive, and expose, the traitors amongst his closest allies.
Exclusively on The Book Blogger today, we can reveal the opening words of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Dead opening words:
All was not well. Nothing solid emerged, yet there were rumours.
Publication is planned from Bloomsbury in Spring 2016 after final editing has taken place, with a graphic novel version to follow soon after in Winter 2016. Many thanks go to our source within Bloomsbury, without their leak this exclusive article would not be possible.
