Anthony This is so depressing=/ The release of this book would be somewhat of a halfway marker to finally being able to finish the James Potter series.…moreThis is so depressing=/ The release of this book would be somewhat of a halfway marker to finally being able to finish the James Potter series. Because I read that he was writing this, then the Crimson Thread. But now I'm hearing all this sh*t about him abandoning Girl in the Graveyard. Which I don't care too much about in itself, it just makes me worry about weather he's going to dump the 5th JP book in the trash along with it. Maybe he just scrapped GITG so he could put all his time into writing The Crimson Thread. **Wishful Thinking**(less)

I really wish there was 7 books, since the series is really good. Lets give our support to Mr. Lippert in hopes he will find a publisher and write more!

Can't wait until this comes out. I flew through the first four books and am now biting my nails to know what comes next. I sincerely hope this isn't the last book of the series. Lippert has done such a remarkable job bringing us back to the world created by JK Rowling, but updating it for the next generation of Hogwarts students. I find myself laughing out loud at parts and even shedding some tears at others. Any fan of the original series should definitely check these out. If you can get over y ...more

I have loved this set of the books it leaves you on your toes wondering whats to come I'm not going to lie I wish it wasn't coming to a end so soon already it seems as IRS just getting started but I understand why without funding and time it can be hard I know that if you could actually sell the stories I would buy them without a second thought I wish J.K. Rowling would maybe help you and y'all publish them since you used some of the basic characters and details y'all could share profits I think ...more

Please please PLEASE GEO! Do NOT make us wait another 2 or so years for this book! I'm definitely not rushing you on it because I want it to be as spectacular as the others (or better if it TRUELY is the last one). Keep up the good work.

P.S. I'm glad you and your kids have moved on from Harry's story to James's story. Congrats! I'm sure the kiddos will enjoy them as much or probably more than the previous. I have a feeling by the end they will be us fans truest advocates in the continuance of th

This review is to be read by G. Norman Lippert alone. Though I cannot stop you fellow readers from seeing this review, I encourage you not to for the good of your experience reading this series.

I am deeply moved by your dedication Mr. Lippert to your series. If I may offer my professional opinion though, The death of Lucy Weasley is a grievous blow. Though while a good portion of this series has been satisfactory, even healthy for Harry Potter fans, I cannot say that the death of Lucy is a good

I think you should write 7 books. Seems like you're rushing it a little.

It would be really nice if G. Norman Lippert was going to write 7 books, for many reasons, his series is so great and great as JK's series , 7 books for 7 years in Hogwarts, 7 books because I really like the James Potter series, and there would be a lot of more reasons that me and thousands of another people who loves G. Norman Lippert books want 7 or maybe more books, I also know that write a book with quality, take a lot of time and work, sleepless nights... Anyway, it's an amazing series and ...more

I'm gonna go mad at this rate. Where is that next book? The book worms in my brain are killing me. Please save me by giving all of the James Potter series fans the next book.

There are very few books today that get my attention like Mr "James potter" series. Lippert . He is original, thought out, and you never knowwhat will happen. Short of jumping into a tank of hungry piranhas to know what will happen in this book, I really want to know what will come soon. Keep up the good work Mr. Lippert!

I loved the entire series and found it all to be quite imaginative but still feeling like I'm in the Hogwarts world. I was hoping these would become a movie series. I haven't read the new book forthcoming from Rowling but am hoping it is not incompatible with this series.

The final chapter in the James Potter Fan Fiction story by G. Norman Lippert. I am disappointed that the story has ended but the writer has done a great job with this series and I look forward to reading more of his stories in the future. For sure I will be re-reading this books again!

I am very excited that there will be another book, and I think it's nice that there is only going to be 5 books mostly because an author has to stay true to their writing!
