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 www.JamesPotterSeries.com. 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

Why can't I read this book ?

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 www.harrysfirstchristmas.com/ 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. I am so excited by finding a new author, that I have purchased 2 of h...more

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.

I'd sure like to see the Potter ci...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.

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...more

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...more

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...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...more

I really really want Lippert to finish this book and keep writing this series. I'm sad that there is nothing more to read and hope to read more of this story. Please keep writing it!!

Just when is the cutoff for "Autumn?" I'm hoping in your mind that means October! And not November! Can't take the suspense!

I'm sure this could be a very entertaining sequel, but there is no way to download or purchase. What's up with that?

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...more

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

Ok so far... I know it's unfinished... I felt myself somewhat bored... I know the importance of knowing what happened after the event BUT



I expected to be reading more about how it effected the potter and Weaslsy family rather than what's really going on in the U.S.... I also don't particularly buy that Petra would enlist help from a muggle detective even if he does specialize in the magical world... I look forward to the rest however! I loved the last 3 JP books and hope Lippert doesn't take to...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

This is the fourth in Mr. Lippert's fan fiction series about the adventures of Harry Potter's oldest son, James.

The usual gang is here: James, Ralph, Zane, Rose, Albus, and the newest student, Harry's youngest--Lily.

Merlin is dead, Petra is missing, James is the only one who can see the Lady of Lake, and the Muggles know about the Magical World. James, Albus, and Ralph are back at Hogwarts, rejoining Rose, and Lily is beginning her first year. The new headmaster is very grim and Mr. Filch has a...more

Finish it, finish it!! Fell in love with these books. Would love a nice tidy ending, though I understand his desire to write books he can sell. Wish JK would let him sell these. They really are so much fun!

Best yet in the James Potter series! I sincerely hope that Mr Lippert continues this series. I am hooked!

I need help. I can't seem to be able to read the book. Like there's no Read Now button. Help!

While promising at first, the book degenerates in the second half into a mess of fantasy cliches.
