In an update to my review, the book continues! At present (mid July 2013) Mr Lippert is releasing this book one chapter at a time via This is expected tho last for about a month, after which it will be released in full. The book is given away for free, but readers may "buy a coffee" for Mr Lippert via PayPal donation on the site. I have loved all the books, and found it well-worth donating some to help this author continue writing the books we love. Let's all keep the ...more

There are only 47 pages available to read so far, but they are intense, descriptive and captivating. I do hope the balance of the novel is finished soon, as I am most anxious to see how all the story lines mesh and resolve each issue. Read three short stories by the author here and scroll to the bottom to the forum to find the link to the 47-page PDF file that is the book so far.

This is a fabulous series...have shared it with everyone at work. For those who haven't been able to download the 47 pages, you need to go to Norman Lippert's website. On the page that has his short stories available for download (which you can download to your bookshelf in iBook also), scroll to the bottom of the page and go on the Grotto Forum...from the forum, you will be able to go on a link to download the first 47 pages.

Whew!!! Thanks Men In Black and Bewitched for being the jump off point for J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. If it weren't for you, G. Norman Lippert would not have been able to take James Potter and made his fourth book, well at least the first 47 pages of it, the best in the magical world. These 47 pages have me so psyched out!!! I am absolutely mad about this book. I've read the it three times already, imagining where it's going to go. I will never read another book until I read this finished book ...more

This was a great read so far!! Very disappointing that the author Isn't being taken seriously because it is considered fan literature!!! He's taken the concept and made it completely his own! I would buy all his novels and put them on the shelf alongside the original series. Can't help but think that JK Rowling would appreciate these herself!! Here is the link to read the beginning of the 4th, and final (for now) book

After the poor performance in the third book, I approached this one with lessened expectations and actually found it a return to form in many ways. Characters were developed better and the annoying trend of "fully capable eleven year olds" came to a halt with Lily Potter--though I find the idea that James is intimidated by an eleven year old enough to give up the invisibility cloak something that no fourteen year old boy would be in actual life--especially if it's his baby sister. But that was t ...more

This book was...complicated. There was alot going on all at one time. The ending subsided pretty good, but some things I just wasn't satisfied with. First off, it was a little silly for Dumbledore to come back. Not even just impractical, it was cheesy. I could have done without that. Also, I didn't like Nastasia's fate just left hanging. Does she die or does she end up fine? Whatever happened to "Timothy?" What was his punishment, and what was the conclusion of all of the world leaders that had ...more

WOWZERS!! Loved it! Anxiously awaiting Mr. Lippert to resume writing it. I added this book to Goodreads myself and created the cover from some graphics on the web and using Gimp! Also I read it on my Kindle (I used Calibre & Sigil and created both an EPUB and a MOBI).

The completed book certainly lived up to my expectations! It is a fantastically well crafted story with a whole lot of surprises and also a lot of pathos and some nostalgia thrown in at the end.

James Potter and the Morrigan Web is the 4th book in the series. It is in a genre called fan-fiction, which means that is is based on the ever-popular Harry Potter series, but not written by the same author. This being the case, Norman Lippert does a wonderful job staying true to the charcters and the places of the original book.

Now, for my little soapbox speech, since this is fan-fiction, you can not buy these books. They are only available for free on his website. Yep, he doesn't get a dime f

This book was my favourite of all the books Mr. Lippert has written in the JP series.
Like many other readers, I found it difficult at times to align the actual age of the characters and their behaviours, responses to certain events as well as how they were treated. James was portrayed as far older than he actually was, and treated by Harry Potter as such. Of course I understand the concept of how Harry would not want to be as unhelpful as he had found many adults when he was younger, but the gap

Confession: I read this book even before finishing the 3rd book. I know, I know!

But here's the thing. As what the author mentioned, it does not give anything away and he is open to any speculations as to how things turn out for young James and his band of misfits. He gave a hint though about Lucy and Merlins demise.

I have loved the book ever since one of my friends told me about it. I have shared it with several other librocubicularists and everyone is doing the same. If there is an online petit

There aren't enough words to describe how much I love this series of books! I have honestly felt like a child again, these stories have given me the same warm tingly feeling that Harry Potter always had. If anyone hasn't read these so far I suggest that you do, no actually, I don't suggest you do, I demand that you do! Honestly - you will thank me later. It is the perfect mix of fantasy, sci-fi and mythology for me and I hope to the highest mights of the universe that G Norman Lippert is able to ...more

Update: wonderful book! The James Potter Series completely satisfied my craving for more of the world of Harry Potter.

Wish he was able to finish it, but understand reasons for not doing so at this time. I have totally been sucked into the world of James just like Harry.

4.5 stars. This book was written with the same charm that sucked me into the first of the James Potter books. While there were definitely some parts of the story I could have dealt without, I truly enjoyed this installment of the series. It kept me enthralled for most of the entire story, and I loved the end scene with the mirror. It brought a tear to my eye! While I am a Harry Potter purist, Lippert makes it his own, and makes it something enjoyable. There are parts when I have to remind myself ...more

I am not too familiar about fan fiction etiquette and rules...but if I were J. K. Rowling, I would have used everything in my sphere of influence to publish the James Potter books. Given that everything started with Ms. Rowling's works, this fan fiction series, on its own, is just super awesome!

Similar to the Harry Potter's books, each installment in the series tops the previous one; the characters grow, the story intensifies. Not only once or twice, while reading the Morrigan Web, did I think t

What an emotional roller coaster!! A must read for any true Harry Potter fan!

As life continues on for James his family and friends since the unveiling of New Amsterdam, things seem to be getting worse and worse. A new Headmaster is appointed by the Ministry of Magic to replace the late Merlinus, which can only mean trouble and proves to be so. New rules are implemented, all in the name of safety for the school and its students. A new "foreign exchange" program, so to say, is being forced on the

I love the continuation of the Potter universe. Mr Lippert you do it really well. Sometimes your writing style can be a little slow to get in to but I do find that on the whole it is similar to what the originals were like. I didn't like the American setting in the last book but I loved the different cultures you portrayed in this book mainly because it was set back in Hogwarts. A couple of things I will say: 1) There is not much use of spells in the book and James seems pretty much useless. Ano ...more

This was an excellent installment in the James Potter series and the best written one yet. Mr. Lippert's chops as a writer are definitely honed and delivering excellent plots and and story. More than any other of his stories so far, I felt I was fully involved in the world of Harry Potter and Hogwarts in particular. His full opus is evolving nicely, and this story was quite the ride! The surprises he brought along kept my mind amused and my need to expolore the Harry/James Potter universe well e ...more

The fourth and longest to date and most comfortably familiar, as we now know the JP world, and the arc returns to Hogwarts. I continue to be impressed by his ability to remain faithful without imitating - these are very much his own work, more complexly plotted and, well, not quite as smooth (not a bad thing, per se, just a different feel). This installment really showcases the biggest difference: it's a labor of love - for himself, his family, other fans - and as such he draws in just about any ...more

Wow. While there were certainly the same cliche issues as I found in the other books, especially this last one, I found this book to be EXTREMELY poignant. I almost cried at the end with the mirror scene. I love how Lippert brings the original Harry Potter books to mind by creating J.K. Rowling into a character, and bringing in Muggles who know about the stories. I found the growth of the characters immense and well done, and the dialogue was much much better. Although it still seemed a little c ...more
