Read an Excerpt

"Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall." - J.K. Rowling

I loved all three ebooks. They were enjoyable to read from start to finish. I really learned a lot about true heroism and just how unique each person truly was in the books. Each person held a set of unique talents that was seen by a wise headmaster and various house leaders. As a result these unique people added there mark for good on Hogwarts Legacy and the lives of their respective students.

This is a great collection of stories from Hogwarts. It is part of an ebook series created by Pottermore. This book gives some details of characters, which do not appear in the Harry Potter series. The book begins with Minerva McGonagall’s life story. It wasn’t until I started reading it, that I realized we don’t know much about her past from the series. She faced many hardships in her early adult life, but they shaped her into the strong woman she was as professor and headmistress of Hogwarts. The second part was about Remus Lupin, so it was definitely a tear jerker. J.K. Rowling even said it was an emotional story to write. He is one of my favourite characters in the series, and he had a tragic life. The book ends on a lighter note with stories about Sybill Trelawney and Silvanus Kettleburn. They were minor characters, and Kettleburn doesn’t even appear in the original series, but their stories were entertaining. This is a great start to the Pottermore series, which is a must read for Harry Potter fans!

This is a collection of essays. Some of the information is neat, but don't expect much narrative quality.

It is a short book, but, worth the read. It was fun to hear the histories of some characters from Harry Potter.

This book provided insight and backstories on some of the characters from the books. The backstories on Professor Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin were really interesting, all of the stories were. I love how quick and entertaining this book is to read.

For some reason my copy only has 7 pages-not a collection of stories.
