Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany
Released: July 31, 2016

Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult
Tags: play, time travel

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

I liked this. The fact that the book is written as a play didn't bother me, but you could easily tell this isn't Rowlings text. Knowledge of the familiar characters was seemingly different of the "real Potters".
