"James Potter and the Curse of the Gate Keeper (James Potter, #2)" is a continuation of the adventures of James, Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley's son. But there are changes from the last since this time around, he's joined by his younger brother, Albus and his cousin, Rose (Hermione's daughter). At first I thought, oh no, the author's re-creating the Golden Trio (take a look at the book cover and you'll see why I assumed this). Fortunately this wasn't the case.

The mother of all surprises was that Harry's second son was sorted into the Slytherin House while the only child of Draco Malfoy gets sorted into the Gryffindor House.

HP fanatics will like the extended magic that the Mirror of Erised functions as as well as the time travelling bit, back to the time of the Hogwarts Founders. If you haven't figured it out by now, yes, the story takes much inspiration from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" (literally and in terms of the plotline). In concept this seems to be a great premise but unfortunately it feels strained written under the pen of Lippert.

The big issue this time is trust: should James and his friends trust the new Hogwarts Headmaster; should Merlin trust James? Is Petra to be trusted? Tabitha? What about Albus? Scorpius?
