JK Rowling has decided to release four new Harry Potter ebooks at the end of June on Pottermore telling stories about different Hogwarts subjects.
Potter fans have cause to celebrate today as author JK Rowling has announced her release of four brand new ebooks for her readers to enjoy.
Despite the journey beginning over 20 years ago with the release of the first Harry Potter book in 1997, fans remain loyal and excited whenever new content comes out.
The ebooks will be released at the end of next month on Pottermore, Rowling’s online Harry Potter world which shares everything to do with the books and films, including lots of new and unseen content.
Having already tried out releasing one extra story, Harry Potter – A History of Magic, Rowling is back with four new ones for her adoring fans.
These non-fiction stories will be bitesize rather than entire novels. They will go into detail about themes surrounding different subjects that Hogwarts students have to study while they are at the magical school.
Pottermore Publishing announced that the series will be called Harry Potter: A Journey Through… and have been adapted from the audiobook Harry Potter: A History of Magic, which accompanied the British Library’s exhibition last year.
Readers are told to ‘prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it out own Muggle history, or the magical world created by JK Rowling) with this new series of ebook shorts.’
Each book will ‘take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories’.
The four books will cover Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts; Potions and Herbology; Divination and Astonomy; and Care of Magical Creatures.
Pottermore will release the first two books on 27 June, while Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy, and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures will follow in the coming months.
They are ‘a chance to absorb the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic in a more compact form’.
The entertainment site added that the books are ‘perfect for the train or whatever Muggle transport you prefer’.
Notes, manuscript pages, and line drawing from London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason will also fill the pages of the ebooks alongside an exploration of the origins of magic.
Fans will be able to access the ebooks in English, French, Italian and German initially.
Pre-orders are now available on Amazon UK and US, Kobo, and Apple.
