Saving Connor

Last week I finally finished reading Limyaael’s “Sacrifices Arc” – her adaption of the Harry Potter stories. I must say, I am overwhelmed – I actually can’t think of words to describe it.

Canon Harry Potter is for kids: I would summarize it as Witches… Wizards… Magic!!! That’s wonderful!! And let’s kill Lord Voldemort too!

But the Sacrifices Arc is not a children’s book by any standard. It’s a brilliant study of character conflict with literally dozens of characters interacting with each other and changing over almost 8 million hundred thousand words. And it’s a Bildungsroman too – not just for the protagonist (Harry), but also for several other characters.

Like I said – I simply can’t think of words to write about it. Read the books for yourself, and you will get sucked into the wonderland that Limyaael created for her own amusement.

I did, and now I don’t think I’ll ever read canon Harry Potter again.

    Actually it was a typo – was meant to be .8 but I missed the “.”

    I’ve just updated the post 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by!
