This Fanfiction was the first one I've read five years ago and I can say that the trilogy to which "the psychic serpent" belongs, is the best of all FanFiction of HP I've read until now. The sequels "the time of good intention" and "the triangle prophecy" is even better! Thanks Barb!

After seeing all the good reviews I thought I would give this one a shot, but though it seemed to hold a lot of potential, the writing style was a bit wordy and then came a little tidbit that brought me to a screeching halt. In a letter to Harry from Hermione, she mentions going to see Victor Krum in Bulgaria, who had just gotten a job as reserve Seeker for the Chudley Cannons. WTF?! Why would a world-class quidditch star, one who carried his team to the finals of the world cup, take up a second ...more

GREAT HARRY POTTER FAN FICTION! It's the HP story told with different twists (starts after The Goblet of Fire). NOT for the under 17 group as the teens do what a lot of teens do and explore their sexuality. A few things were changed from the original and you may or may not pick them up (example: Ginny's given name is not "Virginia" as stated in this story). I enjoyed it a great deal and will be starting the next book by this fan today. :-D

Hands down the best HP fanfic I have read.

Considering how long the read was, there was not much plot to speak of - it read more like a series of related vignettes than a complete narrative. Nevertheless, it was good to see the HP crew again (Draco in particular got an excellent rework), and the romantic shenanigans offered a much needed distraction from the story's lack of substance.

This was one of the first HP fan fictions I ever read, and I thought it was clever, even if the serpent didn't have a lot to do with the story overall. The characters were well written, and it made me want to read the rest of the series.

Exellent fan fic really enjoyed the different take on the series.
There is a preqel The Lost Generation that sets everything in where it flows more smoothly.

So as I sit here and type this review I still have tears running down my cheeks. Through all three books I have laughed, I have cried, I have sat in suspense, I have gasped and I have loved.

This 3 part trilogy is something that will really get you thinking, make you stop and will make you appreciate everything.

The ending is NOT what I expected and it made me quite emotional. I wont say anything due to spoilers but take it from me. You need to read this book, you need to read all of them. I hav

This is the first book for ages I've absolutely had to keep getting back to - to read 'just a little more, just a little more' until 2 in the morning and so on.
Got almost nothing done all day because I was hooked on the book. Apart from some minor niggles with inconsistencies and Krum joining an English team, loved it. Going searching for the next one right now.

Could have been good, I liked the premise and I don't mind when a fan fic diverges from canon. I do however mind when it's long-winded and badly written.

Sorry... really wanted to like it.

The book is too long and the writing isn't as good as other fan fiction I've read. The plot is slow but at the same time makes you keep reading.
