Get Ready For Three New Books In The Harry Potter Universe
Potter heads have some reading to catch up on, as J.K. Rowling has announced three e-books to be released very soon that take place in the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
Rowling reveals surprises and intricate details about several characters’ lives in the trio of soon to be released e-books, which are available next month, Pottermore CEO Susan Jurevics said in a statement to TIME. The collections are presented by Pottermore, the interactive website Rowling created for Harry Potter fanatics, and cost about $3 each and will be released Sept. 6.
“Pottermore Presents is intended to supplement the Harry Potter book series with short-form content that is entertaining and thematically curated by the Pottermore editorial team,” Jurevics said.
Power, Politics And Pesky Poltergeists gives readers a glimpse into the “ruthless roots” of Professor Dolores Umbridge and the relationship between Professor Horace Slughorn and Voldemort when the Dark Lord was a young student at Hogwarts. The book also provides the history behind the Azkaban prison.
Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies profiles Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin, while Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide focuses on secrets behind the walls of the wizarding school.
The third and final book seems a little more mysterious. Apparently “you’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, [and] learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle.” Sounds like we might be getting intimate with a few ghosts, which is not something you can say every day.
