Book, where have been all year?

I first read book 1 earlier this year. It was good but it lacked some stuff that kept me from immediately jumping into the sequel. Then a couple of days ago I saw the prequel on someone's shelf and, because I wasn't really in the mood for anything in particular, I decided to continue with this series.
So I quickly reread the first book to dive into this one.

And God, I'm so glad that I finally did.

This book has everything I liked and wanted in book 1 and more. It is

Whoo! When I said in my review of #1 that I hoped she'd relax into the world and let us spend more time with and get to know the characters a little more, I had no idea my wish would be granted to this extent.

This was incredible! A fascinating, enthralling, heart-breaking, inspiring examination of the mind, free will, responsibility, sacrifice, friendship, and family.

We learn more about what has really happened to Harry because of the way Lily chose to raise him. It's fascinating to get to head-

I have too many mixed feeling for this story. First of all it felt so long. The next books are far longer but CoS was never my favourite anyways, the settings and the events never intrigued me. Maybe that it is why I couldn't enjoy this book.

Harry's thoughts make me rage. His obsession with Connor can't be healthy at any costs and whatever Lily or Dumbledore say doesn't change it. This is why I don't understand why some of the adults don't interfere. I mean yes, Remus tried and I loved him for i

Harry/Draco friendship

Just as good as I remembered, and I'm enjoying this more knowing how the series end and noticing small things knowing they're going to be explained/matter later in the story.

I love how well this is written. All the elements of Harry Potter that we all loved is here, smashed, and molded even better. There are unfortunate parts, but more, there are extremely splendid parts. The author combines and flits on canon in the best of ways, adding layers and layers behind the original story, deepening backstory, describing emotion and strategy and society in ways Rowling hadn't, and in ways I'm enjoying so much more. Truly fantastic, and what I hope to come across every time ...more

After finishing this book, I realized that there is no way turning back; I must prepare myself for this promisingly long, but incredible journey of several thousand of pages in this series next year. Oh, my review on this book? it's weird, yet addicted since I'm only used to the original story of Harry Potter; however, this series will take me to another new time line of my most favorite series of all time. it's time to buckle up.

Definitely as good as I remembered - here's a series that makes me happy from so many points of view, not the least of which is its brilliance.

Reading it for the second time is different from reading it the first time around - I noticed more things, I knew what to dread and what to enjoy while it lasted. And I really love how everything is working awesomely together.

Even better than the first one. I love the characters. Narcissa is awesome. Remus is awesome. Dumbledore scares me. Compelling plot that mirrored the Chamber of Secrets while also containing new and creative elements. The exploration of occlumency is fascinating.

I'll review the series once I finish - but may I just say. Wow. This is...Just. Wow.

I really liked this one! Really, really did. I absolutely love the unlikely childhood friends that slowly but surely grow closer over the years and Harry/Draco definitely fit that trope. I mean, they are best friends and so different but so loyal to each other and my heart just melts. Melts. It's a puddle on the floor right now; a sugary puddle because it overdosed on sweets.

I'm not even One Of The Big Drarry Shippers but THIS makes me understand why some people are, truly. I know that I'm gush

While some of the characters do act quite agelessly and not what you'd expect from this type of genre, I do like how the story keeps on getting dark.
There was a warning that people will start noticeably dying, no one of importance died yet, besides (view spoiler)

4.5 stars-this is just an amazing series and not one to be rushes through. I was quite busy the last couple weeks and it was ambitious of me to try to read this but I couldn't quit it though I thought about it. I also couldn't skip ahead though I tried to do that as well. You feel compelled to read every page, so much is happening and it keeps you fully engrossed. Mainly I like to read these for the romance and I do feel its being hinted at some more in this one but the boys are still young (tho ...more

I am now completely hooked. Seriously, I have been reading hours and hours. As I'm writing this the day after I finished #2, I am already at 45% of book 3, and it's so compelling. I love the way the relationship between Harry and Draco, and Harry and Snape develops. The complexity of the plot is mind-boggling every now and then. Yet another revelation of how something was planned, or another unexpected event.

I really hope Lightning on the Wave is writing professionally too!

The revelations that occur during the second installment are well worth the wait. Harry's internal tribulation is felt deeply with the detailed narrative. The pace begins to become a bit too slow with too much focus on minor relationship changes but the plot payoffs made this my favorite of the series so far (currently in book 4).
Harry's kinda starting to get on my nerves, what with his attitude, but the plot was still really good. 4/5 stars.
