Overview

In summer 2007, the collective tension was palpable. One by one, legions of breathless fans reached the bittersweet end of the Harry Potter series: rewarded for years of patience, yet experiencing odd combinations of understanding and bewilderment, relief and grief, satisfaction with ravenous pining, and often wondering, 'Is that really all there is?' --- Well.... That just depends on how you look at it. --- While J.K. Rowling confirmed that her Harry Potter series has concluded, she also expressed her intent that the Harry Potter books not be fully understood at first reading: not at all. Considering Rowling's cleverness, it would be sad - and also wrong - to think that knowing the crescendo of Deathly Hallows' Chapters 32-36 also means we've fully deciphered absolutely everything in the preceding 4000 pages. Far from it! Beyond the romantic hook-ups, humor, adventure, snogging, red herrings, and even the deaths, Rowling's many-layered series still contains veiled intricacies and misunderstood themes eagerly waiting to be savored with fresh insight. In fact, many of Harry's greatest accomplishments and shrouded secrets remain virtually unnoticed by vast multitudes of readers...including some of Rowling's brightest fans. Of course, that isn't an insult to the fans, but rather, a compliment to the genius of the author. Since Harry's inception nearly two decades ago, Rowling has scattered a myriad of clues that, bit by bit, illuminate the complex mosaic of Harry's secrets and fly in the face of various criticisms. The problem is that exploring and understanding the growing plethora of hints could take years of research and study. --- Not to worry. --- A Harry Potter fanherself since 1999, author Nancy Solon Villaluz spent five years doing exactly that. Rather than rushed conjectures and opinions, you will feast on the fruit of 5 years of passionate research and accurately honed insights; plunging you into a challenging, in-depth analysis of all seven (7) of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels, her companion books, and her influences. Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons? daringly tackles the deeper mysteries of 'Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus,' guides Potter aficionados beyond the warm shallows of J.K. Rowling's world into the hidden depths of Harry's richness, and sets a high new standard of excellence for Potter fans. Inside, a journey awaits in which you will discover how a school motto, clandestine faith, and a bunch of books for kids have accomplished the unimaginable. Many will be stunned, others might even be offended; but how many could possibly suspect the veritable banquet quietly lingering right within Harry's own pages...just waiting for anyone brave enough to approach the Sleeping Dragons' lair. So surprising is the evidence within these pages, that even Harry's most devoted fans may find the need to go back afresh and delight in reading Rowling's Harry Potter epic again...for the first time.' --- Do you dare come along? *** ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nancy Solon Villaluz would rather not 'prattle on' about herself; she feels that any Lockhart-ish claims made here would only cause her readers a few headaches -- and perhaps even a bit of nausea. Instead, she prefers to focus on her goal of lavishly informing her readers on the subject of Harry. (A much better goal than crowing about oneself; wouldn't you agree?) Mrs. Villaluz' book will tell you, quite well for itself, everything that you would want to know about its new revelations, humor, and writing skill in a much more compelling fashion than could be done here; yes, quite so. One caution: ...please make sure you've got your wits about you when you venture in. 'Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons?' will fearlessly take you into Harry Potter's books as you've never been before! *Please note: this book is not authorized by J.K.
